How much do you value yourself?

Do you know someone who has a low opinion of themselves?

Perhaps someone who consistently thinks they are an under-performer and not worthy of praise or compliments?

Simply put, your level of self-esteem is how you think about yourself, how you see yourself.

Some people have an inflated image of their reality. Then there are those who have a good grip on who they are, and their range of abilities and self worth.

Unfortunately, there are also those people who suffer from a debilitating condition involving their self-beliefs that can actually lead to a shortened lifespan and physical health problems that arise from stress.

This short story may help you change your perspective about your own self worth…

A popular speaker started off a seminar by holding up $20.

A crowd of 200 had gathered to hear him speak.

He asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

200 hands went up.

He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.”

He then asked, “Who still wants it?”

All 200 hands were still raised.

“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?”

Then he dropped the bill on the ground and stomped on it with his shoes.

He picked it up, and showed it to the crowd.

The bill was all crumpled and dirty.

“Now who still wants it?”

All the hands still went up.

My friends, I have just shown you a very important lesson.

No matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value! Share on X

No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.

It was still worth $20.

How Much Do You Value Yourself - Forward Steps image 1500pxMany times in our lives, life crumples us and grinds us into the dirt.

We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances.

We feel worthless.

Yet, no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

You are special…

Don’t ever forget it!

While you are here, I recommend also taking a peek at this e-course from my friend Juanita Pienaar.

Her course contains a guide, powerful self-healing sessions and videos that guide you through the journey of remembering your self-worth in order to participate in the world as a confident, empowered individual with the full knowing that you are enough!

We have all been there: loved a little bit too hard, wanted to be loved a little bit too much. To the point of losing ourselves, neglecting our needs and forgetting our self-worth.

I’ve taken a good look through Juanita’s course and it is well put together for making a real difference to your life.
