Cultivate your sense of worth
Worthiness is a given---we are all born with this character trait in tack. We do not earn it, nor do we need to learn about it, we simply need to accept it, honor it and believe that it is part of our being. You see, we all are born in the image and likeness of our Creator and therefore, we all have the same ability to enjoy this gift; yet research has shown that there are numerous people in the world men, women and children, alike who do not feel worthy. As a result their lives are lived in a very limited way.
What is worthiness? Worthiness is a state or frame of mind that dictate attitude, behavior and environment. When we feel worthy, we are saying that we value ourselves and deserve to be respected and acknowledged. Those individuals who feel unworthy are usually feeling ashamed and in capable of performing or achieving in general or specifically.
How you feel about yourself and life is a strong indicator as to how you perceive it. If you really want to know if you believe you are worthy, just ask your feelings. Your feelings never lie. When you are in tune with your authentic self and you know and understand yourself well you are better equipped to handle life and enjoy its bounty.
How to cultivate a strong sense of worthy? For starters, I encourage you to look at yourself with kindness, compassion and a beautiful sense of self-love.
ﾌﾇ Do not criticize or be harsh with yourself that is self-defeating.
ﾌﾇ Do not place yourself in negative situations but rather surround you with positive like-minded people who believe in their capabilities.
ﾌﾇ Do not try to be perfect and make everything perfect in your life. We are all born as perfect in the image and likeness of our Creator--instead place your attention on your intention and continually remind you that you have something special to offer to others.
Find your niche or what suits your talents and build upon it. When you change what you believe you change what you do. That is how you cultivate and create the right area or endeavor that is marked specifically for you. Each one of us has been born with a specific talent or gift and it is up to us to discover it, cultivate it, nurture it and watch it grow.
People hurt people we are very good at making our children, family and colleagues feel unworthy when we criticize, put down and say that you are not good enough. Conditional acceptance is caused by negative comments. We soon learn that if and when we follow the rules, we are accepted and when we don't, we are unworthy. The message that we receive on a regular basis that remind us of our conditional acceptance reinforce our reduced sense of worth because rejection brings that point home until we finally begin to believe that we are unworthy to succeed.
If you are an individual who is struggling with your personal value, then I encourage you to pay attention to this message. No one has the power to make you feel unworthy or less than---only you can make those feelings stick.
ﾌﾇ To believe in your value and worth requires you to believe in yourself
ﾌﾇ To believe in your value and worth requires you to allow other peoples comments to role off of your back that means, do not take the beliefs of others on they do not belong to you
ﾌﾇ To believe in your value and worth, remind your daily how special you are look at yourself with kindness, compassion and a strong sense of self-love.
You have what it takes to cultivate your worth all you need to do is believe in yourself!
