     Relationships cause people to want to be with you, but respect causes them to want to be empowered by you. Mutual respect is essential to the empowerment process. Everyone wants to feel that they count for something and is important to someone. People will give their love, respect, and attention to the person who fills that need. When you believe in people, care about them, and trust them, they know it. That respect inspires them to want to follow your lead.      

Please give some thought to this and make it part of your life each day.
