Daily Money Minute

If it is the respect of others you seek then money will never be the means by which you will get it; certainly not money alone. Treat others well and they will treat you well. Show them respect and you will get their respect in return. The respect you get from others derives from your character and not from the size of your bank balance. People will speak well of you if you’re decent, kind, considerate and generous with others. No amount of money will impress people if you are a rude, bad-mannered, selfish bore. Gaining the respect of others is a privilege which must be earned. Acting like a spoiled rich kid is not the way to earn it. Having money doesn’t mean that you’re better than other people it just means that you’re a bit luckier that’s all. Give people the respect they deserve.
