Treat people as you want to be treated. Personally, I just don’t see any way around this. I think one of the worst things we can do is come across as arrogant. You must earn respect, and just telling people how important you are does not get you there. Sometimes we feel we need to have all the answers. I think a great key to being successful in life is to ask a lot of questions, listen intently, and hear what people are talking about.
