03 May Knowing Your Self-Worth
So what is your self-worth? Do you know what your self-worth is? Well, let’s take a look at your life. The things you do and the things you settle for in your life will…..
Give us a clue as to what you think your self-worth is. Are you okay with being treated with disrespect and neglect? Are you okay with poor health, low energy and not looking the way you really want your body to look? Well if you are in any of those situations, studies show that you must be doing something in your life that’s attracting or contributing to this ongoing reality in your life.
Jim is struggling with jealousy in his intimate relationship. In coaching he has begun to see a pattern of how he has behaved in previous relationships and he wants to break this habit. With further exploration he discovered that he did not feel worthy of his partner, as a result he feels that she will find someone better than him. His relationship is consumed with a sense of jealousy, anger drawn from Jim’s sense of threat when his partner interacts with other males.
Clear your mind and think of one area in your life where you are denying your worth. Are you honoring yourself? Is this making you and those who truly love you happy? What is one way you can begin to honor yourself and celebrate your worth? Are you ready to declare your self-worth? Are you caring for and loving yourself as you would a loved one?
Stand before a mirror, take a good look at yourself, smile at your reflection and declare your self-worth. For example, if you believe that you are worthy of being in a healthy loving relationship then declare this. Say, I am beautiful, worthy of being loved, cherished, adored and celebrated in my life. I am worthy of having a great looking sexy body. Say this ten times a day for the next two weeks. Also write this statement out and share it with your best friend.
Tape a copy on your computer screen, your fridge and on the kitchen cupboards. If you are ready, make a commitment to do one thing today to solidify this new belief in your mind. You could do one of several things or a combination. Some ideas can include taking a nice hot bath or eating a healthy meal or having a fulfilling conversation or being with someone who celebrates your worth. Go ahead, celebrate your self-worth!
