I received a new book from Thomas Nelson Book Review Bloggers, "The Power of Respect" by Deborah Norville. My first reaction before even opening the book was one of curiousity. My thoughts of respect were more related to being kind and generous to others. However, after reading a bit more I realized their is tremendous power behind respect. You do benefit from respecting others and respecting yourself. The respect that you give out can and will come back ten fold.
As I continued to read I found my curiousity was quenched and I discovered and learned the secrets of respect. The power of respect does not only apply to those in the business world, but also to those at home and at school. Deborah Norville introduces ideas and thoughts about respect by relaying real stories and events that help us take a close look at how respect can help us in our daily lives.
As mentioned in her book, many people feel that we do not respect each other as well as people use to in the past. Each generation seems to let respect slip further and further throught the cracks. She mentions that respect is something that must be taught in the home, we must respect our children and by being an example by the way we live, they will in turn learn this powerful tool of respect. By passing on this simple yet highly effective principle of respect we will hopefully repair this lack of respect that has been growing in our society.Tweet This
