When we treat children with respect, they in turn learn how to respect other human beings.Daisaku Ikeda

give respect

To earn respect we must give respect. And we must give it genuinely. When we do that the other person sees us more generously. Generosity automatically earns respect. Generous listening is the next step; it’s the icing on the cake and it’s the most giving thing any human can do.

all children

We’re all children at heart. We want to be appreciated, heard, loved and respected. If we treat everyone we meet as childlike individuals we won’t have too many relationship problems. Therefore we won’t have too many life problems. Interacting with others from a childlike perspective is about as close as it gets to a ‘silver bullet’ for all of society’s ills!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM full of childlike respect!
