When you read the title of this post did you have the answer right away?
How much are you worth? Who do you think you are right now? What will people pay in exchange for your products and services? If you are a company and a perfect stranger wants to invest in you, and they look into your life and work, do you think they will take the chance or skip it and go find another person to invest in?
What determines your self-worth?
We have to all think about that, are you developing yourself, do you have confidence in yourself, do you trust what you do and do you trust that it can change people’s life for the best? The career you have the job you have, do you think you are worth it or more? Do you believe that you are giving all you can or are you performing under average?
So many questions we have to ask ourselves if we are not happy and satisfied with the life that we are living at the moment. People complain about why they do no
t have enough money or why they don’t have enough friends, they complain that everyone is to blame but not them. If you find yourself complaining, ask yourself what can you do better now to improve your future value? Like I said in my previous post, you create yourself, and by creating yourself, you determine your own value.
See yourself as company and you are the president. What else do you need to make this company grow, to make profit, to stay in business to keep the president of the company happy. If we are not moving even for a little bit every day, if we are not doing something everyday that can add a little value to the company, than soon enough you will be out of business. Look around you, look at the industry that you are competing in, that you are part of, what are the other companies doing that you are not doing. How are they educating themselves, what are the actions they take. Learn from others and improve yourself. If you have no one to look up to, EDUCATE yourself.
Don’t go out of business, remember, as long as you are moving fast or slow, as long as you are adding value, big or little, you are going in the right direction. Think of yourself as a company and you are the president, do you want to get bankrupt and lose your company, lose yourself? Don’t underestimate a little action, for the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step (Lao Tzu).
