Jan11Money VS Respect
January 11, 2011 | 36 CommentsShareImage by jean-louis zimmermann via Flickr
I hope it’s not too late for me to wish you a “Happy and Joyful New Year”. You know the ritual? New Year is the time for people to set their goals of the year and many came to me to ask for some goal setting tips. Then it came into my mind. I was thinking, if they have this problem, then my readers might as well asking the same question.
Fortunately, I have a friend, Arina Nikitina, who helps people to achieve their goals through some powerful goal setting methods. I called her up and ask her if she can give my readers and subscribers a huge discount on her goal setting package. Good News, she answered, YES!! And here you go. You can check out her goal-setting package for the price of a cup of coffee here:How to Set and Achieve A Goal
All right, I have a story to share with you today regarding money and respect.
In today’s world, money is like the air. You can’t live without it. However, if you have plenty of it, you won’t ‘breath in’ more either. Think of those multibillionaire. Do you think they need more money to eat a better, larger lobster? Unfortunately, not everybody thinks so.
Let me share a story with you to illustrate my point.
Once, there was a rich man who had almost everything he ever wanted. The only thing that seemed to bug him is, he didn’t feel respected. So, he kept on thinking how he could gain more respect from people around him.
As he was walking along an alley one night, he came across a beggar.
“Here’s an opportunity,” he said to himself and drop a coin on the beggar’s bowl.
“Now, you should be thankful to me,”
The beggar took a look at him and ignored him.
The rich man felt angry and said, “Hey, are you blind?”
“It’s up to you whether you want to give me the coin or not but if you don’t like it, you can take it back,” replied the beggar.
The rich man became even angrier and dropped 10 more coins to the beggar.
“What about now? You should be grateful to me and thank me.”
The beggar gave him a blank look and didn’t even pay any attention to him.
“Now I’m the rich man here. At least you should show some respect to me”
“Give me money or not is up to you but whether I should give you any respect, it’s up to me. It can’t be forced.”
The rich man felt extremely annoyed.
“I give you half of everything I owned. Now you should respect me” shouted the rich man angrily.
“If you give me half of your asset, then we’re equally rich. Then why I should respect you?”
The rich man can’t control himself anymore.
“I give you all my money and possession. Should you respect me now? You must, mustn’t you?”
“If you give me all your money and possession, then I’m the rich man and you’re the beggar. I have a better reason not to respect you now,” replied the beggar sarcastically.
In the story, the beggar said it loud and clear that money does not equal to respect.
We are borne equal. Everybody can earn their respect regardless on their financial status. I am not the most handsome man or the richest man in the world but I do earn my share of respect from my friends, students, family members, business associates, readers and subscribers.
Even though money could not buy you respect, but in my humble opinion, it is not a bad thing either. Let me share one of my real life stories with you.
Though I am not a super rich guy yet, I do live in a pretty comfortable life where I can get all my necessities quite easily. In short, I’m doing okay financially.
Lately, I have a friend who is having some trouble in her life. Although it is not a serious problem, money, moral support, positive thought injections other forms of help seems to be able to solve most problems. Since she is a good friend of mine, I stepped in to give a hand spiritually, financially and plenty of time commitment. Not to buy a friend or to buy any respect from anybody. It’s just a pure sincere intention to help others.
As time goes by, problems arise. I began to hear things like:I’m trying to take advantage on people’s misfortunes.I’m trying to buy friend, love and respect with money.I’m helping others with some hidden bad intentions.And many more.
I don’t take those negative comments personally, of course because I know thatI have a choice.
I can choose to conclude that being a good person to help others is bad, I should only mind my own business, never help people again and money is evil because it creates problem.
I can choose to ignore those negative remarks and aware that only I and I alone can approve myself. Not others. What others think speaks volumes about themselves and had nothing to do with me. Helping others is my personal contribution to others and it not only helps me to satisfy my spiritual need but also helps to bring in more good karma.
I choose the later.
One choice makes me, the other, destroys me.Moral of the story:
In life, we do not always have control over what’s going to happen to us. However, do not forget that we do always have the choice to choose how to react to the situation.
If you have been good to others and they are not grateful to you or backstabbed you in return, it’s their loss. Do your best and let god take care the rest.
Always respond to the situation with a thought that makes you a better person. Never respond with a thought that destroys you.
Life experience gives us lessons, not destruction. Nail it in your mind. Write it in BIG letters on a piece of paper and paste it on your wall if you have too.
Life is not about what’s happening to us. It’s about how we react to it.
No matter what happens to us, always attract the best with the Law of Attraction. Equip yourself with intense positive emotions and visualize the desired outcome. If you have problem with visualization, I recommend you to use Mind Movie. It’s very powerful software to help you visualize things easily.
Understanding the laws of universe is very important to keep us on track. It not only helps us to understand why things happen but also enable us to manipulate the law on our favour. If you are just like me who is always hungry for knowledge about how things work and why things happen to us and how we can manipulate the situation by using the laws of nature, I highly recommend you to study 11 Forgotten Laws by Bob Proctor.
I hope you enjoy the story and lessons I share here. I’d appreciate it if you can leave your comment below to tell me what you think and share your thought with me.

Dear Raymond -
This is the most important thing to me that you have said here -
“I can choose to ignore those negative remarks and aware that only I and I alone can approve myself. Not others.”
Who do you see when you look into a mirror?Debbie @ Happy Maker on January 11, 2011 5:49 pm
This is so true, “Life is not about what’s happening to us. It’s about how we react to it.”
Our reaction to anything is what really makes a difference. The right reaction can definetly earn a people lots of respect.
When it comes to respect is it something that we have earn and you are right. The bank account does not determine respect that we receive from others.
Happy new Year and thank you for the reminder.
Interesting story, I think to many people don’t think that way though and the fact they have more money than you means they are a better, more worthwhile person. It’s a shallow life a lot of people lead.raymond on January 12, 2011 2:46 pm
You’re right. The amount of money one possesses is not related to the quality of life a person lead. Sad but true.raymond on January 12, 2011 2:50 pm
We should learn to react wisely.raymond on January 12, 2011 2:51 pm
Thanks for the question. It takes me a couple of minutes to answer that to myself.David Rogers on January 12, 2011 7:45 pm
As you say, one choice makes me, the other destroys me. Interesting story, not heard before. And being respected is a quality we don’t always think of, but really is a key to a successful life.Beat Schindler on January 12, 2011 9:31 pm
Of course, the challenge with the “money is evil because it creates problem” argument, how to explain human behavior and problems before money was even invented. Money is a relatively recent invention.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful story.
I agree with you that “Life experience gives us lessons, not destruction”.
Experience is still the best teacher. Once we learn from our experience, that’s the time that we grow and as we grow, it will teach us on how to react on things around us in a positive way. This will also give us the choice to be a better person.raymond on January 12, 2011 11:51 pm
You’re welcome and you’re right. Experience is like the fertilizer to our plant of lives.raymond on January 12, 2011 11:52 pm
You’ve got it. Problem exists even without the existence of money.raymond on January 12, 2011 11:54 pm
Respect is one of the most oversee quality of life.pya on January 13, 2011 10:03 am
i am better with this..”Life is not about what’s happening to us. It’s about how we react to it.”
Thanks for sharing the story! Different people have different interpretation on one particular thing or event. When people make some “negative” comments on us, I think we must thanks them. Thanks them for reminding you and let you realise that you are actually not a “bad” person! Cheers!Sherri--Being the Change I Wish to See on January 13, 2011 9:12 pm
You’ve got it right Raymond. Respect must be earned. It cannot be bought or sold. We either act in ways that earn us respect or we don’t.
That’s right. Money is important but it can’t buy everything.raymond on January 14, 2011 2:29 am
Dear jing Rou,
That’s so true. We are the only one who have full control over what we want to think and direct our own mind. Thanks for commenting here. I’m so glad to see you here.raymond on January 14, 2011 2:29 am
I love that phrase too.johnny ong on January 16, 2011 7:45 pm
good write up. what we choose today will decide what we are tomorrowraymond on January 17, 2011 3:19 pm
I can’t agree more,chemistry on January 18, 2011 8:00 am
I love this article. So positive, enlightening, inspiring and encouraging. What will it do to you if you gain the wealth of the whole world and yet no one likes you and no one respects you even an animal. Both money and respect can be earned but not both can last forever even until you die.Krizia | Blog Income for Women on January 29, 2011 4:19 am
You always remind us of the important things in life when working with the law of attraction and this post is again proof of this.
Thanks so much!

Excellent story. Even though money may be a measure of power and influence, it can never be a measure of respect. Respect is probably one of the purest intangibles that can’t be bought by any amount of money. It simply has to be earned.raymond on February 4, 2011 4:45 am
Hi Komodo Dragon,
You’ve got it!!!p90x on February 4, 2011 11:05 am
It is never too late to wish happy new year. I hope you have a great year this year Raymond. And I enjoyed reading your article. Thanks so much for sharing.

Great post. Money certainly doesn’t make the man. I grew up with a lot of people who “had” money, I found that the ones with old money carried themselves better and treated others as equals, while the people who had money but probably more debt than money were quick to judge. It isn’t how much money you have it is your character and how you treat others that one should be measured.raymond on February 10, 2011 10:08 am
Thanks Robert. I wish you have a great year too.Investment Guidelines on February 10, 2011 4:34 pm
Nice comments shared in this post. Through this blog came to know about many unknown news. Thanks for the post in this blog. Keep it up the good work.
It is so nice of you, to this great article.
Thanks once again.
Glad to catch up and read a great story. Really in life it’s much about choice and not about luck. If you have riches now then you chose to be rich and therefore you worked for it. With respect, if you choose people to respect you with or without the thinking of riches then you do something good and ethical to them – a matter of choice combined with effort.

Thanks I enjoyed this. Too many of us go through life blaming other people, the weather or our partners for our circumstances. These are all excuses. Called playing the victim. It is so easy to blame someone or something else than to accept yourself as responsible. You can made this point clear. Thanksraymond on March 11, 2011 8:14 am
I can’t agree more. You’ve got it right.raymond on March 11, 2011 8:16 am
You’ve made a good point. I agree.business 800 number on March 13, 2011 8:02 am
Great website…and cool article man…keep on posting such articles… Resources like the one you mentioned here will be very useful to me!now it would be easy to achieve my goals!Vlad on March 22, 2011 1:50 pm
It ia an interesting question, but I think the answers can different depending on situation.Rachel on April 1, 2011 8:29 am
Many times I see people with money have no respect for other people at all. only for people that have more money than them.. that’s a real shame.
Rachelraymond on April 6, 2011 1:27 am
I can relate to that but I believe not all are like that.
