Higher “RESPECT LEVELS” = Higher ROI

Trust, or lack of it, is costly to any business. All the controls that attempt to minimize theft of supplies, products, time, and confidentiality in your business are costly and ineffective in comparison to a simple shift of mindset from a low “Respect Level” to a higher “Respect Level.”

Because our world’s mindset is dominated and mostly unconsciously driven by “The Disrespect Philosophy” people’s justification to scoop office supplies or product, use business Internet time for their own personal use, take extra long breaks or lunches, break confidentiality agreements, etc. it is easy for people to justify their choices, especially when they are resentful because they feel they are being taken advantage of by low wages or even with high wages but without their even more basic need being met … feeling valued … respected … in how they are treated on a day-to-day basis.

Inherent in each and every one of us is the driving need to feel valued … respected … not for what we have … what we can bring to the table … but simply for being a unique individual … a human being … a life.

Fill that need … increase people’s “Respect Levels” by showing them how to “Connect the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” and you will not only see your control costs go down, you will also see increases in motivation, productivity, cooperation, while also reaping the benefits of better health maintenance that will translate into less time off for health reasons, lower medical care coverage and overall, an enthusiasm that will infuse your company with fresh, positive energy and lift your company’s morale and ROI more effectively, efficiently, and compassionately than you ever considered possible.

Entry for Christians … and Once Upon a Time Christians

Some followers of Christ may consider Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE not valid because it does not refer or quote The Bible directly … and that is intentional, but that does not mean the work was not inspired by God.

Personally, I was raised and schooled with the Catholic tradition, but a number of experiences, (you will be able to read the fiction book, DARK HORSES, inspired by true events in 2015), caused me to reject Catholicism and ultimately God. For years, I searched for something to believe in and for a while I did not even bother to try … just tried to stay alive on my own.

But twenty years ago, during an extremely tumultuous time in my life, I turned to God and said, “If you truly exist, then give me a reason for all I experienced and a purpose; otherwise take me home.” That night, the birth of what I now call Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE was placed in my heart.

But, it took me twenty years to come back to truly believing in God, which I now do wholeheartedly, because in reading an amplified Bible I discovered the words that support the Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE idea that He directed me to write.

However, the work was written for the “religion” of today … intellectualism … founded on the principles of philosophy and science … logical and practical … yet with the added component of compassion to reach non-Christians and to reach people such as myself who turned away from believing in God or even grew to hate him because of what Christians, in their own ignorance of God’s teachings because of what was erroneously taught them or through their own afflictions, hurt us to the point our faith was shattered … hence the many empty traditional churches and lost, scared, and lonely people.

For me, all that led to the development and authorship of Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE is what helped me to heal … at first, intellectually and eventually spiritually. Bringing people back to what is good in them and in our world is my purpose … what was placed in my heart. It may not fit into what many Christians consider God’s word or work, but if they really know God personally, they know he uses all kinds of people and all kinds of ways to teach and heal. And, in fact, he likes to use the unexpected, the perceived least likely or least worthy … in order to confound those who think … who judge themselves as above others … more spiritual or more of a Christian … but ironically, there is truly only one kind … a believer.

Once my Respect Level rose high enough, I was empowered to examine my beliefs and to change those that were limiting, negative, and harmful to my existence … and opened the door to see the spiritual side of me … of life … and God.

Both books, The Bible and Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE, are intertwined and once you have read both you will know the latter came from the former … just presented in a different way to reach those whose religion is the popular intellectualism so their hearts and minds will be opened to the possibility there is much more to life than what we see … thank God!

A few thoughts for the day … God is not a respecter of persons … because he “values” everyone equally and God’s primary command of Christians is to love one another … and while we are learning to do so, he is asking us to at least … value (not like, agree with, or approve of) … respect … others on our journey back into love.

Forced to Stay in a Relationship Because …

Getting into a relationship is easy because most of us want the dream of the relationship being “The” relationship of our lifetime … that will last a lifetime.

But unfortunately, desire for “The” relationship clouds our best judgment and what should have been “The” relationship results instead in yet another learning experience … one difficult to walk away from, especially if we have grown accustomed to a lifestyle the combined finances generated.

Separation is the acknowledgement change needs to happen, yet with a separation hope remains; however, with the receipt of the divorce papers, the finality sinks in, along with having to deal with the financial ramifications … the “who gets what” scenario many dread … even if we know the change really is the best decision.

But what if you were forced into a relationship you did not want to have? What if your country was overtaken by another? Another who used violence to take what belonged to you? And what if over time, you still desired your freedom, but did not want violence to be the catalyst of change? What if you desperately wanted out of a relationship you never wanted or asked for … even if over time you were treated decently? Would you still feel like a prisoner … a slave to another person’s desires versus yours?

If so, what would the answer be?

One person walking away from another, even with children involved, is one thing and challenging enough to emotions, minds, and finances … so what about a portion of country’s citizens who want a divorce but are denied because the majority rules? Even if that majority is only a small percentage higher than those who want the divorce?

If democracy is about freedom, does that freedom not apply to all people in a country? And if the country is built on the premise of freedom, then isn’t it the country’s responsibility to figure out the details of the country’s separation so eventually enough of the details will be resolved, by people with high enough Respect Levels, who know that keeping people from their freedom of choice and punishing them for their choice is counterproductive to their nation’s welfare, in order for both parties to go their own ways and build new lives … and nations with people who want to be where they are?

Twice divorced, once from a marriage less than a month after turning sixteen (not pregnant … just running from situations I did not know how to deal with effectively) and once from a marriage of nineteen years after my true self started to emerge, which replaced the chameleon I had become to try to be what people wanted to be accepted, liked and even loved, I know from experience of what I write.

What compelled me to leave both was my desire for freedom … but not freedom to be wild and unrestrained … but freedom to discover who I really was … and to be who I really was and to be with people who valued … respected me for me. The quest achieved many years later, freedom is a gift I longed for my whole life and now I know how to be me, I can once again consider marriage again because this time I will go into the marriage as me … and my husband will know at the beginning who I am and he will think I am cool and will not desire to change or restrain me by his beliefs … and nor will I him.

Inspired by the week’s events, I write this in the wake of Scotland’s referendum … 55% wanted to stay … 45% wanted out of a relationship they never had a choice about. There was no victory because victory is not victory if it is about oppressing people. Instead the numbers reveal much work has yet to be done in raising Respect Levels in the nation, just like Canada has to with regards to its province of Quebec citizens, who desire their freedom also, and other countries too around the world who desire to be freed from the various kinds and levels of oppression.

Democracy has to grow with the awareness that keeping people prisoners, no matter how kindly, is still preventing freedom. And countries filled with discontent, need to work on the plans of how to fairly split the nation and resources. Not a quick fix, but a process that will in time, free those held prisoner, even if only in their hearts and minds, yet will also free the oppressors from roles and responsibilities that have become unnecessary and obsolete, plus foster discord and strife.

Of course, as with any divorce, especially when children are involved, people have to learn to accept change is inevitable and what has come to pass is often not about them, but about everybody … and everyone has to work together to create something new out of something old … being hurt, resentful, angry, and even vengeful will only make the pain worse, plus will cloud judgment on how to best move forward for all people’s sake.

Living is all about change. Change will happen regardless of how much we fight to keep things the same and history proves the more we try to keep people imprisoned, in any way, at some point they will more than just disagree … they will fight for what they believe is right … their freedom to choose. A higher level Respect Level world will recognize this natural progression and will develop ways to adapt to the pressing changes … including shifting borders and signing divorce papers of a once unified nation.

Teachers’ Strikes … Teaching Disrespect to Youth and Children

Based on the Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE premise, teachers’ strikes demonstrate adults do not have high enough Respect Levels to resolve issues between the adults … the teachers, administration, and government in a timely manner … even though the impact is severest to youth and children.

And then we wonder why youth and children grow up with the mindset that important issues cannot be resolved without conflict and without neglect … the respectful diligence necessary to take care of the children and youth first and foremost … and why they have low Respect Levels for themselves … and their elders.
