Whether you’re starting a new business, interviewing for a new job, or making a new friend, you will have to eventually answer one question. “Am I enough?”
The more time you spend asking someone else that question, the more lost you will be. The more money you spend trying to answer that question, the more broke you will be. No one, and I mean NO ONE, can answer that question BUT YOU.
The biggest challenge I see with determining one’s own value and worth, is comparison. When we finally do get some clue as to who we think are, we hold what we think up to the mirror of society to see if what we think measures up.
“Trying to measure up will always keep you small.” – Jeff Crume
The secret is, there is no measurement. A person’s value or worth is a matter of perspective not measurement.
Just because you have the most toys or the most money doesn’t make you valuable. The one who doesn’t value money or toys doesn’t think less of, or more of, you because you either have them or don’t. Money or toys simply isn’t their measuring stick.
What is your measuring stick? What are you using to measure your worth?
Money? Career? Possessions? Success? Family? Happiness?
What if I told you none of these things can accurately measure your worth?
