Self Worth

Posted by:

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. A secret about one of the most important things that we ALL need right now. The secret to improving your self-worth.

You see, self worth has two parts:

Self Worth=Self Esteem+Self Image. 

Self esteem is how you feel about yourself.  
Self Image is how you perceive others feel about you.

Here’s the deal. It is an undeniable truth that when you do something kind, supportive, or good for another person (expecting nothing in return) that it makes you feel better about yourself. Thus Self-Esteem improves.

At the same time, given the proper level of sincerity and timing, that same kindness improves your knowledge of the other person’s perception of you. Thus Self Image improves.

Sharing kindness, without expectation, is the secret to improved self worth!

But that’s not all. The real secret ingredient to all this – self-forgiveness. You’re going to mess up. You’re going to make mistakes. You’re going to upset people. As people forgive you those things…forgive yourself those things. Understand who you are. Understand your intentions, and forgive yourself. It’s simple….and difficult. But it’s essential.

Self Esteem+Self Image=Self Worth. 

Self worth+Self Forgiveness=Successful Living.
