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).

Self esteem vs Social media 

Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, YouTube, Blogs, etc.

Everyone has an account or uses all social media platforms. It’s fun, connecting with the world, connecting friends and family. Some have made it there business and others just use it for their own private life. AND it can be addicting to get as many likes as possible, sharing each and every moment because it will gain followers. But why are we doing that? Why do some people feel like they need to get certain likes because otherwise they delete their post. Not enough? People see that your selfie didn’t make it to the popular pages? SO WHAT?! 

Too many people attach their self esteem with their social media accounts. It’s very important for some to get more followers more likes and more compliments. That selfie is going to be IT!! And then… it doesn’t go as you wanted… as expected… then what?! You feel down? You feel sad? You feel angry? Why? 

Self esteem goes down, and people look for what others do and how they look and what they wear and try to copy that because that will give them some fame. Unfortunately it doesn’t always work like this and you have to understand. This doesn’t mean that you are uglier than the rest, less fun, less intelligent or anything in between. 

Don’t attach who you are with the likes you have. Try to see the fun in sharing nice moments, but don’t let the amount of followers or likes take away the joy of the moment. 

Nobody is going to share their problems with the wold (some do and that’s their choice). Nobody is going to share a picture where they just got out of bed, or where they are feeling angry or sad. Why? Because that’s not for sharing, that’s private in my opinion. 

So whatever you see on social media is not always how people live their life ever single moment of every single day. Don’t be ashamed and don’t feel less than anyone. Your true value is with the people that are really around you. Your kindness in your daily life!!! 

Social media, it’s fun and all, but it will never determine how I see myself when I look in the mirror. And I wish for everyone to understand. You are beautiful, with 1 or 6000 likes on that selfie that you took 100x before posting one (yes that’s me too and I’m not ashamed!).
