R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Don’t you absolutely just love the song about respect by Aretha Franklin? You know the one,“R-E-S-P-E-C-T…..Find out what it means to me.” I never thought about it before, but I guess it does mean different things to different people. To me it means being polite, mindful, thoughtful, considerate, and treating everyone with the human dignity they deserve.

A few weeks ago I met a woman for the first time. We were introduced online by a mutual acquaintance who assured us that we had a lot in common and would get along famously. She was wrong.

We met at a coffee shop, got a table, and exchanged a few pleasantries. Suddenly, she whipped out a notebook and said that she just got an idea and had to jot it down before she forgot it. No problem. I often do that myself.

She began to write. And write. I sipped my tea and waited. And waited. I checked my email. I checked my texts. I checked Facebook. I organized my thoughts. I organized my purse. I finished my tea. She continued to write. I ran out of ways to entertain myself.

Just as I was ready to get up and suggest we reschedule our meeting when she was less preoccupied, she slammed her notebook shut, and gave me an ingratiating smirk. No apology. “You understand,” she said. “And I’m sure you don’t mind.” Actually I didn’t understand and I certainly did mind, but I simply smiled politely. I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt. And respect.

She began our conversation with a political rant. Really? I sat silently while she raged. When she finished, I tried to change the subject and asked her about her practice. She began another tirade about her clients. It wasn’t pretty.

I sat there for an hour and twenty-five minutes, not speaking, just smiling until my face ached and my teeth hurt. Afterwards I sat in my car and shook off the negative energy that had engulfed me. Suddenly the immortal words of Aretha Franklin sprang into my mind. She certainly nailed it when she sang “R-E-S-P-E-C-T…..Find out what it means to me.” And sock it to me.

 

The Invisible Black Belt

Have you ever done something that was so unexpected or out of character that you surprised everyone who knew you including yourself?

That’s exactly what Cheryl Ilov did when she began studying an ancient Japanese martial art called Ninpo Tai Jutsu, the Art of the Ninja and the tender young age of 47. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to walk into a male-dominated, testosterone-infested dojo and begin training. It also requires an incredible amount of trust. Cheryl had neither.

However, what happened next is truly remarkable as she embarked on a journey of a lifetime, becoming her teacher’s FIRST female black belt ten years later. In the 20 year history of the school, no woman had ever achieved such a high rank.

Hear more about Cheryl’s story and discover why she believes that there is a black belt in each and every one of us, and how YOU can unleash your personal power!

Little Steps–Big Feat

Little Steps, Big Feat–Life and Leadership Lessons From One Woman’s Walk Around the World

On August 1st, 1999, Polly Letofsky left her home in Vail, Colorado and headed west. She traveled across 4 continents, 22 countries, and over 14, 000 miles–by foot–to become the first woman to walk around the world.

In the middle of Polly’s five year journey, the world suddenly shifted on its axis when September 11 flung us all into a crossroads in world history. Polly suddenly found herself embedded in a vastly changing world and realized she could never retrace her steps home–they’d vanished in a tide of world events.

Polly’s GlobalWalk has been featured in over 2,000 newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations around the world. Polly now shares her story with the members of Rising Tide Business Networking group.
