Respect can never be demanded, it has to commanded. Therefore our actions and works should speak for it self.There are so many people who proclaimed that they are the best without the agreement of others.
Self- Proclamation shows that someone has given themselves a particular title or status rather than being given it by other people.
Always remember that people always react with positively to anything which is good and negatively to anything which is bad.Therefore we should just do our duties and let people judge for themselves.
Our action and work speaks itself ,there is no need to grow our own trumpet.
