RESPECT: I will Respect others and myself.
First and foremost, respect yourself. The lack of respecting oneself can interfere with the respect you have for others. Treat others how you want to be treated. Hopefully you want to be treated with love and grace. Not only should we respect ourselves and others, but we should also respect EVERYONE that exists in this world.Here at Eagle Ranch Academy, we practice respect in many different ways because there is always room to improve when it comes to be respectful to anything surrounding us whether it be people or even nature. Without respect there is really no understanding for any of the other core values included in the pyramid of success.
Here are some tips that will guide you and your teen to learning how to respect everyone in existence.
Step 1: Respect yourself.
Once we have mastered the art of respecting ourselves, we can then move on to understanding how to respect everyone. Developing a profound respect for oneself involves nurturing ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Along with respecting ourselves in this way, we also need to respect our thoughts and actions and tap into why we do the things we do and say the things we say. Most of all, we need to respect our instincts.
Step 2: Respect everyone.
Treat others how you want to be treated. This statement can seem very vague and cliche, but in all reality, it makes perfect sense. If you want to be respected, you’ve got to reciprocate the same ideology towards everyone surrounding you. It’s quite simple if you believe to see it as simple.
Step 3: Know the fine line between respect and standing your ground.
Often times we get angry and tend to lose sight of what respect means in a moment of being mad, sad, or whatever your emotions may consist of at a certain point and time. What happens is we let emotions take over our moral beliefs. Deep down we know that yelling, using violence, or being negative most likely won’t solve the issue we’re currently dealing with. It’s very important to hold on to respect when we get into these situations. People may push our buttons and we may think that becoming angry is necessary, but realistically, it probably won’t resolve the conflict. There is always a way to handle situations with kindness, care, and respect whether we are enrage or not.
Respect, respect, respect. Respect yourself. Respect everyone. Respect is free. Consider respect a gift worth giving. It may be returned to you, but don’t expect it. Just know you are capable of respecting everyone. Along with respect comes a great amount of love and laughter. There is never enough of it floating around, which is why we all need to be contributors that are constantly putting respect out there. It would make the world a far better place. Eagle Ranch Academy is committed to showing your teen that respect in abundance can create miracles in life.
