Your Value




”We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.”
Malcolm X.


Self confidence refers to assuredness in our own worth, abilities and power, regardless of the situation we are in. Someone who is self confident has a strong sense of belief and certainty in themselves. They exude calmness, composure and is self aware.

We all have some sort of measuring stick that we use to determine our value as a human being. When we feel like we are measuring up, we feel good about ourselves. But, when we feel like we have fallen short, our self esteem can plummet.

Think about a symbol of worth to you. Is it competency? Is it the amount of money you earn? Is it how attractive you look? Identify them, then ask yourself this – why do you perceive these as symbols of worth? Why must you have to have these before you can feel worthy or confident about yourself? Who said anything about these being prerequisites before you can even feel your self worth?

When we become aware of what you are linking our worth to, we can start releasing our self of that limiting belief that we can only feel worthy or confident in the face of certain prerequisites. When we do that, we will become able to find our self filled with a sense of self worth that is always there, regardless of what happens.

The way you choose to measure your worth as a person will serve as a major factor in the choices you make, the thoughts you have about life, and the way you feel about yourself. Importantly, understand what measuring stick you are using to determine your value and begin to measure your self worth based on the factors you can control.

Take a closer look today at what you think of your self… do you measure your  worth?

“Well, we all know that self-esteem comes from what you think of you, not what other people think of you.”
Gloria Gaynor
