be royal in your own fashion: act like a king to be treated like one – law 34 – #48laws by robert greene

Law 34

The way your 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 respects himself 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, The 48 Laws of Power (review)
