Primer Fourteen

Two pretty bars of soap.

Today we’re adding to our list of daily deportment tools.  This next habit is one of the simplest ways to show your polish; for some of you it may even be easy. For others, it might prove to be difficult. Whatever the case, I want you stick to it. Here’s habit number 14: Remove profanity from your speech.  Just don’t use it.  By doing this, you’ll be showing respect for yourself and others. You’ll train yourself not to slip up when it matters and your vocabulary will expand itself to fill the void.  People respect people who don’t use profanity.

Let’s take a look at your daily deportment tools so far:

Sit and stand with excellent posture.

Smile at everyone.

Refuse to say anything bad about anyone, including yourself.

Remove profanity from your speech.

Add those wonderful tools to your fashion development and your health consciousness, and you can see that you’re well on your way toward a bunch of really useful skills and habits that will guide you through life looking fabulous and earning respect. What’s not to like?

  1. Ahh… As a young foulmouthed hairdressers in training, I realized I did not need to lace my sentences with the word s*#&, or any other choice words. I very shortly realized that this raised my value in the eyes of others. And now (decades later) when the truly awful happens (I cut off the top 1/4 inch of my finger) my one s*#& brought my hubby with lightning speed.

    Down one point. Dis’n me. I read a great line the other day that has helped with this. Criticizing yourself is like slapping yourself for being slapped.

  2. I got 13 points yesterday; it was a good day, but a full one.
