How to earn people’s (or your own) respect

Show up when everybody else is afraid of showing up.

Say something when everybody else is afraid of saying something.

Do what you say you’re going to do.

Be who you say you are…

It sounds simple. But it isn’t.

Because it takes balls.

It takes balls to be who you say you are.

It takes balls to do what you say you’re going to do.

It’s risky.

And it might not work out.

And it’s very likely you’re going to fail.

But in the long run it’ll always pay off to be who you say you are…
