Learn To Apply The Fundamentals Of Respect (PT 1 – Self Respect)

Q. What happens when we constantly forsake our own wellbeing to be of service to others?

We risk denying ourselves the opportunity to strengthen and develop our own existence by neglecting the value of our self-worth. The result? We fail to recognise the potential inherent in our own lives and subsequently open ourselves to constantly being taking advantage of. The solution? To respect our own lives so as to recognise when it is appropriate to give time and energy to ourselves rather than to everything and everyone around us.

Q. What’s In It For You?

– Learn The Value Of Self-Respect
– Recognise Your True Worth
– Expand Your Life

By learning the value of self-respect, we learn to respect the value of “self”. In other words, we raise our awareness of self-identity; our inner wealth; our uniqueness. Instead of heading down the road to resentment and frustration, we illuminate the path to fulfilling our potential and recognising our worth.

How do we achieve this? Simple – we take a step back from being of constant service to others and examine what it is we’re neglecting in our everyday life. For example, are we letting ourselves be taken advantage of? Are we kidding ourselves into believing that by constantly giving to others through good intentions that we really are doing the right thing? Are we denying ourselves the opportunity to BE ourselves – to live in accord with our core ethics, values and principles? If so, then we need to stand up and start BEING true to ourselves. Result – we strengthen our self-identity to the degree that we better understand our role, our purpose and our value.

INQUIRY: Take a look at some recent occasions when you forsook your own wellbeing to be of service to others. Which of these opportunities could have been better served by you putting yourself first? If a similar opportunity were to arise again, what would you do differently? What would be the benefit to yourself and those around you?

ACTION: For the next thirty days, put these new realisations into practice. In addition get in touch with your core values, ethics and principles – explore what they mean to you and put them into practice also. All in all, learn to feel what it means to be true to yourself and strengthen your resolve in achieving this.

I wish you every success as you Learn To Apply The Fundamentals Of Repsect …
