Imagine someone you really respect was coming to visit (e.g., God, an angel, the President, someone famous). Do you feel honored that they are visiting you? Do you feel a bit nervous? How would you dress for the occasion? When they arrive, what would you say? Would you get out the best plates? What would you give them to eat or drink? How would you treat them? Would you listen intently to every word they say? Would you try your best to say something intelligent, profound and memorable to them?
Doesn’t everyone deserve this type of respect? Try treating your partner or the next person you meet in this way. How does it feel?
