happier lifeThe Economics of Your Self Worth

These days, it is hard not to focus our attention on the need for money and the perceived lack of opportunity to improve our situations. Will I make enough money to go on vacation, to support my family, or even to send my children to school? These issues are relevant to most Americans’ lives, yet most also do not realize that they may be focusing on the wrong questions. What we need now is a change of mindset, so we can stop thinking of money as the ultimate product of our hard work. We must instead focus on owning our personal development and self worth in order to achieve true satisfaction in our lives. Point being, you are ENOUGH, in spite of an economic downturn. So the question remains, what does your self worth mean to you exactly? To me it means unlearning what is stopping me and waking up to what I can create in my life with meaning, integrity and fulfillment toward helping others with my gifts and abilities. Are you doing this now or is something missing in this area of your personal development?

If you don’t respect yourself, how do you expect others to respect you? If you know you are better than purpose you are doing now, what’s stopping you from making a change? Be the boss of your own life! We have become so good at making excuses: there are no opportunities; I don’t have time to look for a new job; I’m getting by with what I’m doing now. Many of us would not like to admit that money is an issue and therefore a priority in our lives. If money is an issue in your life, what’s stopping your from making a change for the better?

Changing yourself is the first step to your own success. It takes time and considerable patience, but it WILL pay off (literally), and it will make you more satisfied with yourself and your life. Stop asking yourself why something isn’t going the way you want it to, and start asking yourself what you can do or change to get to where you want to be. Take control, make a change, and improve your life!

Don’t settle for a job or existence where you aren’t appreciated or only make enough to live paycheck to paycheck. This does not mean you should quit your job or current purpose tomorrow. But don’t ever convince yourself you’re your current state is the best it will ever be, everything is temporary. Now is the time to take a risk and define your SELF worth! If you don’t, someone else will. Being confident of your abilities and self-worth takes courage, I say, drink a cup of courage each day and step out of your comfort zone. When you live for yourself and love yourself, you will live a happier, more successful, more fulfilling life!
