Who Determines Your Worth?
When a crisis hits, as it has now – the first thing that gets affected is ‘value’ – What is your value – at work – what is your value, in relationships – to people you spend time with. But this sort of value is about what utility you are bringing to the other person’s life – are you a support to their aspirations and wellbeing? Are your fuelling their dreams or even escape?
Self-worth at work
At workplace – it is about what you are contributing or what is being extracted from you – what is your cost-effectiveness, so, it basically just boils down to some bare bone facts.
People face all of this from time to time in their lives – but it is perhaps now a glaring global truth – the big question of what is your value. You can coach yourself to calibrate your true value.
So what Is my value? Is it about how useful I am to you to cater to your needs? About how much I fuel your aspiration or your expectations?
Do I make you laugh, feel good or aid your success?
Yes if this is a professional setting with defined expectations for which you are paid.
Self-worth and relationships
But in personal space, what is your value? In the personal space, your value is determined by familiarity, shared values – compassion, love, safety and goodwill.
What is your personal growth journey. What do you score in the selflove department?
So, your selflove score determines your self-worth score
. It Is Time To Measure Your True Worth
. No one can make your feel redundant without your permission
. Others value you depending on their needs and wants – that has nothing to do with who you are
. Your value to a person and organisation can change when it is based on transaction and the needs have either been met or not
. As long as we remain committed to ourselves, we remain invested in ourselves
. Remember, no externality – a circumstance, a person can make me valueless or redundant
. Learn to value yourself for your true qualities – resilience, cheerfulness, joy, commitment, purpose, honesty, transparency, courage.
. What are your qualities which you are proud of?
. The only one who determines your worth is YOU.
