Get Respect

You Teach People How to Treat You – Get Respect

Through life, we meet and interact with many people. Some are family members, some are friends, others are acquaintances or merely a store clerk ringing you through the checkout. Nearly every single one of these relationships treats you the way they do because you’ve probably set it up that way- good treatment or bad treatment. […]

Don’t Do YOUR Best, Do MY Best
