Who you know and who knows you are prime needs in a path to success. A grand rule of thumb is to always be nice to people; You never know who someone is or knows. However, being nice to people with an expectation of gaining something from them is ill advised. Be nice for the sake of being nice. Kindness will always be rewarded in kindness. Those who are rude shall be rude until you have something to offer them. This means continue being nice. Take note that being kind doesn’t mean doing things for those who are rude to you and others. It means be cordial.
Respect comes in many shapes. Ultimately respect a person’s space, life, desires, rules, and other areas of their personal life. It is about keeping things professional until that door is finally open. When you are giving permission to walk through that door than you can move forward as friends. Until that point it is all business. Respect relationships, business and personal. Each one has a dedicated purpose in a path to success. Working with people, getting guidance or support, all these moments, and more, come from a networking circle.
Most importantly, respect is seen as a sign of value. The action of respecting others reflects deeply unto a person’s reputation. Therefore respect the business you are interested in and it will respect you back. Working hard for something grander than a life you think you must live starts with respecting yourself, then the business you want to be in; followed by individuals in and around your life. Your life is a company, in turn, is a brand, that people will buy into. When they respect that brand they will always want to associate with that brand.
