How do I get into shape?
You have some fucking self-respect, never allow yourself to be a disgusting fat-body, and demand that you keep yourself in shape.
How do I pick up pretty girls?
You have some fucking self-respect, say “hi” to her, and never accept that any girl is out of your league.
How do I get a promotion at work?
You have some fucking self-respect and become so valuable they can't not give you a promotion.
How do I get people to respect me?
You have some fucking self-respect and respect yourself first.
The answer to any “How do I…” question is always the same: You have some fucking self-respect, you demand higher of yourself than others, you put in the time and energy it takes and you go after it without remorse, without sympathy, and without apologies. It doesn't matter which path you take, it only matters that you believe in it and yourself.
This is what I want. Give it to me or get out of the way.
