The dictionary definition of Respect is a "feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements." Having respect for others can let them have respect for you as a result. Respect can't be bought and paid for. You have to earn it. In order to earn respect, you have to give other people respect in return. 

For example, when someone has a different opinion other than yours, you have to accept it. More importantly, there is one important person you have to respect... yourself. That means putting on new sets of clothes every day, grooming yourself, cleaning up your room when needed, taking good care of yourself every day, and recognizing everyone has a a special gift or talent.
