In order to gain more respect, 3 things always work:
- Give respect. Intangible things always increase on giving.
- Be less available. Ninja technique :)
- Don’t run after respect from others. Develop it for your own self. Others will follow.
The best measure of a man’s character is not how many people respect them.
The best measure of a man’s character is how sorted they are when none of the people respecting them are around.
