Don’t waste your time and emotional energy worrying about gaining their respect.

Don’t try to force it, or become insecure about the opinions of others.

Focus instead on doing phenomenal work and becoming elite in your field.

On treating everyone with dignity and making them look good.

On investing in your personal development and the development of others.

On keeping calm in a crisis.

On consistently keeping your promises.

On believing in yourself and your capabilities.

On finding, nurturing and constantly refreshing your purpose.

Only you can control the internal stuff.

And when you do that well, the external will look after itself.
