Better Self-Worth In Two Quick Steps

By Danielle Faith

When you look into a mirror, what do you see? Do you see someone who is worth everything that makes you who you are? Do you feel like you are worth more than anything in this world to other people? More importantly, do you have a sense of self-worth? If you do not have one clue as to how to answer these questions honestly, continue reading and discover your self-worth.

What is Self-Worth?

The dictionary defines Self-Worth as,

“The sense of one’s own value or worth as a person; self-esteem; self-respect.”

What does this mean? It means that you have the knowledge that you are worth more than you can ever know and that you respect yourself enough to believe your value, as a person, is important.

What is Your Self-Worth?

Looking at the definition above, do you have a clear understanding and a sense of self-worth? If your answer is yes, then you know, without question or doubt that you are worth so much; even if it is only to yourself. When you look into a mirror, do you see your unique physical features that no one else has? If you answered yes, you know your true value. When you are with your family and friends, can you see how important you are? If you answered yes, then you know your self-worth. Self-Worth is not defined the same way for each person; is defined as how you see yourself through your eyes and the eyes of others.

Build it Up

For some people, knowing their self-worth is not an easy task; and if you are one of them, you need to find your sense of self-worth and build it up. By doing this, you will gain a power that you will always have.

Here are 2 ways to build your self-worth:

  • Know the Power of Your Attitude Toward Yourself and How Others See You

The way you see yourself, how you talk about yourself, and the way you represent yourself will become your reality. If you are putting yourself down, tearing your worth apart, or making light of your talents in the presence of others you will soon come across to them as a self-effacing person with very low self-esteem.

  • Remember That You Matter

Some people may not believe in giving yourself pep-talks. Surprisingly, they are great ways to affirm your self-image. By openly giving yourself a pep-talk you start changing the internal negative dialog you have developed. Set a certain time during the day to remind yourself what a great person you are and tell yourself how special, wonderful, and loved you are.

Healthy self-worth is critical to you and your life; what you believe in your mind, you will receive.
