ALWAYS EXPRESS YOURSELF
This is the first thing you need to learn if you want to be respected. You should always learn how to express yourself. You must not take everything people say. You should have your own choice and be able to openly tell anyone the choice you have made.
LISTEN MORE THAN YOU TALK
If you want to be respected learn to talk less and listen more. No one likes a talkative and no one will respect somebody that talks alot. When you talk alot, people may avoid you and tend to disrespect you. Even when you have something important to say they might not listen to you.
ALWAYS KEEP TO TIME

DO NOT ALWAYS FOLLOW THE CROWD
You should learn to stand your grounds if you want to be respected. You must not follow the crowd to do what they are doing. If you know what you are doing is right then you should learn to stand by it and not join others to do what is wrong this way, you will be respected.
