Respect yourself and others will respect you

Published : Wednesday, 10 June, 2015 11:30 AM

IIMs and top B schools have replaced GD with WAT which has been described as Written Ability Test or Academic Writing Test or Written Analysis Test (WAT )

But has become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication skills and personality hence,  it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission selection process.
Develop points for discussion and read WAT topic:

Respect yourself and others will respect you

Respect can never be bought or demanded, it has to be earned and commanded. One of the necessary conditions to gain respect is to give respect. In today's world, where individualism and self interest take precedence over the community, it is very easy to envy others for their achievement and difficult torespect them for the same. In this light, the only way others are going to respect you for your achievements and for the person you are, is when you respect your own self first.

Developing a feeling of self-pride in yourself, for your work and life, and being comfortable and at ease with your place in the world, leads to the exudation of a sense of confidence which is infectious and attractive and compels the others around you to take note of you and, in fact, give respect to you. This self-pride can be gradually instilled by enjoying what you do, valuing it, removing all apprehensions about yourself from your mind and being confident and secure.

Therefore, a prerequisite for commanding respect from people around is to respect yourself first. A person who does not respect himself/ herself can never hope to win the respect of others.In other words, if you don't value yourself, nobody is going to value you. 

The question of respecting yourself is closely tied to the notion of self- esteem. Self- esteem or your estimation of yourself shapes, to a large extent, others' estimation of you. A person with low self- esteem, one who thinks of himself/ herself lower than others will find it difficult to garner respect from others and will not be taken seriously even by people less qualified or on a lower strata than him/ her. In contrast, a person with high self- esteem will be respected and taken seriously by one and all.

Respecting oneself also reduces the urge within to gain respect of everyone. In other words, it reduces the dependence of a person on others' approval. A person who respects himself/ herself and knows his/ her true value, will not be desperate to make such changes to his/ her life that might gain him/ her others' approval. Respecting yourself automatically places you in a comfortable mental space enabling you to carry yourself impeccably in all situations and in the process win others' admiration and respect even without trying for it.

Self-respect is a crucial ingredient in a person's personal as well as professional life. Both these spheres thrive on a relationship of trust. Once you respect yourself and consequently win the respect of others, you begin to be trusted, taken seriously and are held in high esteem by those around you. This results in strengthening of the relationships you share with others. 

This is no way means that only inculcating self- respect will translate into winning respect from others. The principle of quid pro quo applies to respect as well- you get what you give. However, respecting yourself is definitely a condition to being respected by others.
