Freedom Empowered by Increased “Respect Level”

Not everything I realize I need to change in me do I like to even acknowledge sometimes, including today’s internal message about minding my own business. This dysfunctional habit of mine developed in part because my personal experiences included having my own boundaries not respected when young and stayed with me much of my life. The other part is because of my desire to help people, which also developed out of balance for the same reason.
As my Respect Level rises I am empowered to see things differently, but instead of feeling bad about what needs to be changed for the better for me and for my relationships, I can see they don’t have the power to define me … I have the power to define me … and that includes changing any part of me that no longer suits who I really am and want to be.
 This empowering knowledge also taught me how to respectfully request people mind their own business too … freedom at last by “Connecting the Dots … with The Respect Principle.”

The company serves as a catalyst to transform “Respect from a value to a principle” as a means to overcome prejudice and its multiple negative results, while fostering peace through the creation, publishing, and production of books, products, and services that educate, entertain, and inspire. Currently a sole proprietorship under my name, the company name will be changing its name to reflect goals and purposes in the new year, plus will be transforming into a partnership and a for-profit social enterprise as the best-fit opportunities arise.
