YouDay: The power of self-respect

Coach LaMonte positions us to not only get the respect we deserve but how how we treat ourselves creates a blueprint to not only how others treat us but the respect

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — All of us want respect. But how can we get people to respect us? 

I have a respect process I call The Laws of Personal Treatment. What this means is we consciously and unconsciously create laws that inform people how they should treat us. 

In essence, people will only respond to us based on the education we share with them on how to treat us.

You've heard me say this before: we must teach people how to treat us or they will assume they already know, and what they believe they know is based on what they have observed from us. 

You must become the model of personal treatment, a blueprint to educate others. Learning to treat yourself with respect and observation will show others what you expect.
