LAW 34, BE ROYAL IN YOUR OWN FASHION: ACT LIKE A KING/QUEEN TO BE TREATED LIKE ONE

I entered my office this morning to do some academic cleaning between classes and noticed Greene’s book on the corner of my desk along with some of my other best reads. The book vibrant in color or shall I say scholarly in presence is deep orange and royal blue.  Its a wonderful read full of power, philosophies, knowledge based etiquette, motivation, and certainties. As I began to shuffle papers and folder categorize old research papers on my desktop my intuition told me to open the book and draw upon its lawful influences from the first observed page my fingers rested upon. So I found myself on (pg. 282) law 34, where the message is quite profound as it relates to observational judgement. Law 34, states in its address to the concept of judgement. ” the way you carry yourself will often determine how you are treated: In the long run, appearing vulgar or common will make people disrespect you. For a King/Queen respects his/her self and inspires the same sentiment in others. By acting regally and confident of your powers, you make yourself seem destined to wear a crown” (Robert Greene, 1998).
This book remains at the corner of my desk as it helps to keep me focused on my own aspirations and it serves a dual purpose in my connection to you.  To summarize Greene’s passage, Live your life with passion and royally. Make your mark on the world or your position in life as the younger generation posits on fleek.  Allow the spirit of reverence to catapult you into your most cherished dream. Find a scholarly reference guide to encourage and support your aspirations and if you happen upon this favorite (The 48 Laws of Power ) allow the energy of the principles to galvanize your next agenda. Remember to never tilt your crown, hold your head up high and may the highest arch of its design always point towards the heavens so your abundantly blessed.
Be your Greatest self, Taylor
