1st of the Month Motivational: Know your WORTH
How much are you worth, a penny, a dime, a dollar coin, $1,000, a gazillion dollars, or an uncapped amount?
"Don't be a nickle out here searching for a dime..", popular lyrics right now. In reality, how many of us dimes, consider ourselves worthy of another dime? How many of us are accepting change that doesn't equal up to a dime and hope that somewhere along the way we'll be able to magically make a dollar out of 15 cents ("a dime & a nickle", lol I couldn't help it)?
I'm not a relationship guru, so I wont narrow this to only relationships. What we consider our worth to be, can determine our entire lives.
"We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?"
Why don't we consider ourselves worthy of positive affirmations? Why don't we consider ourselves worthy of being treated like the queen or king that we are? Who determines if we are KING, QUEEN, or PEASANT? Is it our parents, our peers, our friends, our co-workers, our educational institutes, our backgrounds, or OURSELVES?
"What a man thinketh, so is he."
As the poem goes..."Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world."
You determine your worth. How you project yourself is all that the rest of the world has to go on. They can either love you or hate you, but they can't label you as they see fit, because you have already done that. If you have not determined your worth, then its pretty much up for interpretation. And the world is left to treat an object of unknown value, the best way that it knows how.
So I ask you, do you want to be treated as a person with a known value or a person of unknown value? Do you want to set the grounds for how you are treated, or do you want to go through life "UP FOR INTERPRETATION" to anyone you meet? Make a choice today!! It will save you and the rest of the world a lot of time!
