This is how to earn respect

By doing what is hard for you to do, rather than what comes most easily

Being motivated by selfless actions rather than personal gain

By seeking to inspire others, rather than seeking praise for yourself and your own accomplishments


  1. Hi Ian - yes ... what a great kid - and what an inspirational message he gave to the students and to us ... believe in the Unexpected and yourself - he's one humble lad. Help and think of others, not oneself - so true ... cheers Hilary

  2. Hilary, Alex, this video blew me away because I can understand all too well how hard this must have been for him. Also it's a refreshing antidote to all the nastiness in the news these days.

  3. Love it, Ian. So true. And love your previous post, too. It is indeed very, very sad.

  4. Very nice message! Thanks for sharing. It's something we should all try to do, but sometimes it's hard not to just do the bare minimum to get by in the world.

  5. Thanks Denise.

    David, that is sadly so true. Life shouldn't be this hard, should it?


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
