Maura Sweeney: Living Happy Inside Out | Encouragement | Inspiration | Empowerment | Leadership

In our quest to live a happy life, the desire to feel respected by others plays a big part. But what happens when we’re not sufficiently respected? What do we do and how do we respond, especially when we feel humiliated?

When such challenges occur, we can respond by counter-attacking those around us. Choosing to do so, however, can further erode our self-respect while undermining the respect we might offer to others.

Is there another way to handle disrespect and humiliation? Can we possibly take a negatively charged, disrespectful situation and turn it around for good? This podcast may provide you with an “aha!” thought – or even two – on the topic.

In this latest podcast, I share several personal stories on the subject of respect. Follow me as I recount uncomfortable situations with others: peers, an authority figure, and even close family members.

In it, discover that there’s more than one way to respond when disrespect comes knocking at your door. Respect runs in more than one direction, and you might become an unwitting vehicle to help others learn respect – even as you’re busy upholding your own.

Finally, listen in as Enrique Nuss from Guadelajara, Mexico shares what makes him happy from the inside out, too.
