Personal Power – How To Get Someone To Treat You With Respect

Personal Power. You may think that life is all about fate, and maybe you think you have little or no choice in the way others treat you. This isn’t true. You will get treated in life exactly how you have trained others to treat you.

How To Get Someone To Treat You With Respect

How do you train others to treat you well? – It all starts with YOU. How do you treat others?, how do you present yourself to others? Do you come across as a constant complainer or do you cut a figure of authority?

How much value do you give to people? Are you a person who adds value to people’s lives or are you someone who takes it away? Everyone in life has a personal score based on the value they give to others, also, how you value yourself comes across to others as either an increase or a decrease in your personal score.

Are you always available? Don’t be. My question is, do we value people or things that are always available to us as much as people or things that aren’t?. I think you know the answer to that.

Do you allow others to speak to you how they want?. As strange as it may seem, you do have to train others how to treat you. You do have to set boundaries and not let people think of you as a right of passage.

Personal Power – People Of Power

Although it’s not quite as simple as this, there are basically two types of personalities. Creative and submissive. Creative people tend to be people of power. They tend to see everything as an opportunity and many people tune in to that personality as something to like.

On the other hand, you have the submissive personality. These are people who tend to be reactive to events. They tend to be heavily affected by what the government does or doesn’t do. They are often stating their displeasure with things, rather than getting on with their life and avoiding as many pitfalls as possible using their own savvy. They often carry around a great deal of hidden anger, they are jealous of rich people and often blame others for their apparent lack of success.

I know there are also people who fall in between these two personalities, but for simplicity, I’ve mentioned the most common. So, what has this got to do with personal power?. In effect, it has everything to do with it.

How people treat you is how they see you. If they see you as a constant complainer, a critic without cause, they will treat you accordingly. You are training people to lose respect for you. Serial complainers never really create anything, they are too busy trying to get even with the world. On the other hand, creators recognise that there are problems in the world, but they are apt to create solutions rather than complain about everything.

Personal Power – Train Others To Treat You Well

The formula

STEP 1. If you want people to treat you differently. Treat them differently. If they can’t say a good word about you, BIN them. YES, remove yourself from them and their toxic circle.

STEP 2. Don’t always be readily available. Unless you are a doctor or nurse on call, don’t instantly respond to ANY non-urgent communication. Make people value your time, use it sparingly and eventually people will respect its value. You are training people to respect your time.

Time is the most valuable commodity we have. Use it wisely.

STEP 3. If you want people to treat you as a successful person, BE successful. STOP thinking about it and get on and do it. You will never be defined by the things you think about, you will always be defined by the things that you do. If you look, think, talk and act successful, people will treat you accordingly. If you portray yourself as a beer-swilling, beer belly-aching slob who talks about beer and sex all the time, people will treat you with distain.

You can’t have it both ways. If you want respect, you have to show respect to others and look and act like a person of value. This is how you train others to respect you. Take a good look at yourself in the mirror, and ask yourself “would YOU respect YOU”?
