On Respect

My Internet connection at home is out of service today. I feel like out of touch with the world. So after my daughter’s swimming lesson, I stopped by at the local public library in order to get online to check email and blog.

Isn’t it great to have public libraries where we can get books to read and listen, movies to watch and go online? I am thankful for libraries.

No online access means more offline time to read. So I will be spending most of my evening time reading John Maxwell’s book The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.

There are some great ideas and quotes to share from the book.

One of the 21 laws John Maxwell talks about is the law of respect. I like what he says:

“When people respect you as a person, they admire you. When they respect you as a friend, they love you. When they respect you as a leader, they follow you.”

Are you respected as a person, as a friend and as a leader? It’s something to think about.
