Respect and honour are not given on a silver platter. One has to earn their strides in order to have such.

And while there are many ways of earning respect and hour, below are some of the most notable ways to do so.

1. Stop looking for people who are not looking for you. Reciprocity is important in life.

2. Stop begging people. When you truly deserve something they will give it to you without any connotations and reservations.

3. Stop saying more than is necessary. You end up lying to spice up your stories, then lose respect in the process.

4. When people disrespect you, avoid them. Avoidance secures your health and your reputation at the same time.

5. Do not eat other people's food more than they eat from your plate. Remember the law of reciprocity. Give so that you can receive. You cannot be in the habit of feeding other people with mice and expect to eat their elephants in return.

6. Reduce how you visit some people, especially if they do not value or reciprocate in return. You may be the subject matter of ridicule during their dinner times.

7. Invest in yourself. Make yourself happy. In this earthly life you only have one you and you alone.

8. Stop entertaining gossip and gossipers within your vicinity. Gossipers are destiny-destroyers. Ship them out.

9. Think before you talk. 80% of how people value you is based on what comes out of your mouth. Spitting words without a due thought process is counterproductive.

10. Always look your best. Dress the way you should be addressed. People will begin to take you serious in all your endeavours.

11. Be an achiever and get busy with your goals. Ignore the noisemakers.

12. Respect your time. It is the only resource that once you lose it you can never recover it back.

13. Don't stay in a relationship where you do not feel respected and valued. It is a death-trap and dream-killer. Simply walk away and find a new match.

14. Learn to spend money on yourself. That's exactly how people will learn to spend on you.

15. Be scarce sometimes. Availability without limits makes you valueless.

16. Be content of being a giver for no reason. Have some things that you just give without expecting anything in return.

17. Do not go where you are not invited. Gate-crashing portrays you as a person of indiscipline. That can make you lose considerate value amongst your peers.

18. When you are invited, do not overstay your welcome. If for any reason you are to extend, let your hosts be the one to extend such an honour to you.

19. Treat people exactly the way they deserve. Take serious people serious. Take playboys as playboys.

20. Except they owe you money, two call attempts is enough. If they value you they will call you back.

21. Be good at what you do regardless of the environment. You may never know who is watching and why.

22. Treat all elderly people just like your parents. They carry different graces in life, hence you may never know what you may just be blessed with.
