Three Key Signs that You are Truly a High Class PersonAugust 14, 2011
Let us settle the matter up front and get it out of the way quickly – Class has nothing to do with income or net worth. We are not talking about economic class but class, as a person – a person with the refinement, great style and with great overall value. Real class maintains dignity and exudes a confident air that dignified a person in any situation. It respects humanity and imparts decency in any circumstance. Decency and humanity do not come with a price tag. There are many rich people with class but not all rich people have class. You can also be quite luxurious (living in Miami luxury homes) and be quite classy. They are also many “poor people” who have class. Having less money does not necessarily mean you have no class. These are the following signs which can prove that you are indeed high class.
Sign No. 1: You believe in quality. A person who has class believes that he should always be able to have their money’s worth with any product they buy or service they avail. Quality means having traits that go above and beyond “good enough”. It means a visible profession of possessing the best in terms of craftsmanship, manufacturing capabilities and providing services. A person who values quality in the things and services he avails, values quality in themselves as well. The things they say, do or think about reflects the value system of quality they possess. Does is build up? Does it add value?These are the questions that a classy person thinks about.
Sign No. 2. You believe in standards. We already discussed quality which is somehow similar to standards but standards extend further to what a product or service should be entail. A person with standards knows how to differentiate right from wrong and stands by what is right without any moral wavering or weakness. This person may not be the smartest person in the world but they have set a standard that does not serve their personal selfish purposes but actually based on community standards – common standards of decency, fairness and propriety. Having standards mean looking at yourself first before judging others. It means living up to a moral code which helps you move forward with your life without causing harm to anybody. This is one key aspect of a classy person. Knowing what is right and proper and living up to it is always an epitome of class. It also means certain expectations of quality standards like those found in Miami luxury real estate.
Sign No. 3. You believe in providing value to other people with what you say, do and think about them. It is valuing the people around you, whether it maybe in an organization you belong to, your classmates and teachers at school, your colleagues at work, the employees in the business that you own, or your family. A person who gives importance in valuing other people does not care for himself alone but also puts others first. He does not seek to gain at the expense of others. He seeks to build, add and leave a legacy. This is the reason why many of the philanthropists who driven by a sincere need to change the world do not even ask for appreciation. Many of them give anonymous gifts which truly exudes class. It is indeed classy to add or give value not because you will receive something back but because that is your true character.
These three signs point to a well balanced, fully functional and fully self actuated person that is a true asset to any social circle, organization, institution or fellowship they belong in. These types of classy people truly make the world go round.
