There is an old adage that says "your character perceives you." With this in mind I would like to share some insight about RESPECT; one of the fundamental principles of etiquette.

When we respect ourselves we will always carry this behavior wherever we go in the world. As we practice doing good for ourselves respectable characteristics will become a part of our daily lifestyle. However, we should be mindful that our gifts and talents are not only for our happiness and success, but for the betterment of the world at large.

There are many subtle ways we can demonstrate self respect which will open doors no man can close. Meeting someone for the first time we notice a person's gestures, haircut, and facial expressions. These are some ways which we communicate to the world without verbalization.

We all have a purpose in life. It is very important that we find it. Many times the projects we try to avoid are our purpose and the services we are to provide for someone in our community.

Based on my observation of society, each New Year most people say things like “I will do this "or "I will do that". Truth is, for some, after a few weeks into the New Year it all falls apart.

Why do our ideas fall apart?!

Maybe it's because we don't write the plan. The Bible says in Habakkuk 2: 2; Write the vision and make it plain on paper, that he may run who reads it.

Whenever, we take the time to write our ideas we are more prone to follow through with them. After we have written them, it is also very important for us to keep them before our eyes, crossing off the steps taken towards our purpose.
