Treat people with respect

Have you ever wondered about the garbage truck you see on Indian roads?

Do you know how garbage gets out from your home dustbin to the garbage truck?

Have you thought of the people helping you to do that?

Your domestic help, for instance.

What kind of respect do we show to our domestic help?

I am aware, many people do not give a second thought to the well-being of such “class” of people. Unfortunately, we don’t even recognize that they are doing an important work for us. We are not often thankful to them. We consider their job/ them as  “lowly” deserving no respect.

Think about it.

The very definition of “lowly” is quite vague – it is in our own minds. We may think a person is “lowly” because of the nature of his job, economic strata (s)he comes from, or probably even from the clothes someone wears.

The moment it is subjective – left to our minds, then someone else is thinking about you as “lowly”.

For every one person we consider as “lowly” to us, we can find at least one person who would consider us “lowly”. I am sure you would agree to this.

How would you feel if someone treats you as “lowly”?

I bet you would feel hurt. I bet you would sulk in a corner for days together, scheming about how you can get even!

Well, I think you can solve the problem in another way – just treat people with respect!

When we “re-wire” our brains and start treating people with respect, irrespective of who they are, something magical WILL happen – you would start “emitting” out those frequencies to others that would make them respect you.

This is the truth.

What goes around, comes around.

Try it.

Do this experiment for 21 days:

Every day, genuinely thank your domestic help everyday for the job they are doing for your well-being.

At the end of 21 days, I am sure you would find people treating you with more respect than what they were doing before.

it’s all about you. It’s all about how you view the world. It’s all about what you throw at the world.
