Know Your Worth

If you don’t know your worth, you will never get what you truly deserve in life.  We have one life to live and one body to live it in, why not live life to the fullest?

The best asset and the only thing we really own is ourselves.  Use it or lose it applies to the mind too.  Doesn’t it make sense to then know how much you are worth?

Know Your Worth

Poor treatment is not acceptable. What are you a doormat? Let me tell you a little secret, you’re not a damn doormat you’re an extraordinary human being.  Know your worth and excel in things that only you can do in your own unique way.

The more you allow people to take advantage of you, the more they do. It’s really sad but true. Give them an inch and they will take a mile. Now I’m not saying to not do things for people, that is a different story.

If you do something for someone and they appreciate you and don’t take advantage of you then do it, you can work with that.  Know your worth and then add tax to it!

If you are someplace where you are not celebrated get out of there. I don’t care if it’s a relationship or a job, get as far away as you can. Know your worth and don’t waste your time with a loser. We only have so many days here on earth so lets enjoy them!

Life Is A Long Term Plan

We have been making plans for years. In school, they tell us to plan for our future. In school, they are talking about planning an education. They teach you to do what you are told and be an employee.

What they don’t teach us in school is that we need to plan out every aspect of our lives with great detail if we want to be fabulously happy.  Stuff doesn’t just happen good for you by accident.  Know your worth by taking the time to plan that gorgeous life of yours.

It can be great to be an employee if your employer treats you fairly, you enjoy your job and you make enough money. But what if you hate your job and don’t make as much money as you’d like? Know your worth and find a better place.

If your job is not a positive experience for you, it may just be the Universe telling you to change gears and go someplace else.

The Trinity Of A Happy Life

  1. Great Family & Friends – Friends are family you choose
  2. A Career You Love – One that stimulates and energizes you
  3. Finances – Money can buy happiness no matter what anyone tries to tell you.

Plan on having the best of all those things or they will not magically happen.  Life’s too short to leave things up to chance!

But, and this is a big Kardashian sized butt, you have to believe in yourself and know your worth to even set your expectations on those things.

If I think I am are only worthy of having a man or employer who refuses to respect and appreciate me, or having enough money to be able to properly care for myself and my family, then I simply do not know my worth.  Know your worth!

Make a List

Lists are grand.  Know your worth and find a worthy partner.  A great way to find a worthy partner is to make a list of all of the qualities you are looking for in that partner.

Dream big and make this your dream partner because this list will come true.  Know your worth, because if you put something on there that you don’t want in a mate you will be stuck with it because the list works!

This guy should be Superman. I mean, SUPERMAN. Know your worth and charge tax when you make this list because you don’t want to look back later and wish you had a better list.

I did the list, and a little while later there was my husband who fit my list to a T. I’m happy to say I was dreaming big when I made my list.  🙂

I made my list and put it into a book, forgot about the list, and found it again years later. I was in awe by how exactly my list matched my husband!

The Magic Is In The Details

I had at least 30 bullet points on there and he matched them ALL. You know what I did after I made that list? I got to work on myself. I forgot about finding a man and just got to know me and I got on the path to be a better person.

I’m so glad that I worked on myself because my husband is spectacular and deserved the best mate for him.  He deserved the person I had become, not the person I when I first made the list.

Before I met my husband, I was attracting losers. My father even said to me that if there was a loser within 300 miles I would find him. Kind of a bitch move, but those words hit hard and lesson learned.

The real reason I only chose losers was that I was treated as though I was not worthy of any better.  I was treated poorly by my parents and I really didn’t have any idea my worth.

I woke up one day and realized my parents were all wrong about me. I was not worthless, I was worthy and I was going to prove it to the world and most especially to myself.

Know your worth is not determined by what your parents think or thought of you.  Your worth is not determined by what you did in the past.  Your worth is determined by who you are today, and who you will be tomorrow.

Know Your Worth And Then Add Tax

I was an employee of my business and I had no time for myself or anyone else. I knew I wanted more. I tried a few different jobs but I was never truly appreciated and even though I may have been good at what I did and made decent money, it was not my dream job.

Over 14 years ago I had a shot at my dream job. It happened after I made a vision board and wrote down what I wanted for my life. I’ve been living the dream ever since.

All it takes is a simple act of writing down what you want and you will get it. But you have to dream big, do you know why? Because you are worth it.

See The Positive

See the potential in people. What you reap you will also sow.  Be a cheerleader for friends and family members.  Help others see their worth and in turn you will grow your own appreciation.

Look at yourself with those same positive eyes.  See your own potential.  Don’t ever give up because it’s never too late.  It doesn’t matter what your age is, you are the age you are supposed to be at this exact moment in time because you gain wisdom with each passing year.

Never Give Up

You know what single thing all successful people have in common?  They never give up. The secret to not giving up is to know your worth.

If you believe you are better than your present situation, push past that place and get to where you deserve.  If you don’t yet realize you are better than your present situation then sit around and think about it for a while because you are. We all are.

I’m better than where I am today and I love where I am.  You’re better than where you are today, and tomorrow and the next day.

Know your worth and charge tax because life is expensive.  It’s too costly not to enjoy it.

Find Inspiration

Inspiration is really a must-have. Find what inspires you and get more of it. Do certain audio-books inspire you?  Listen to them.  Does YouTube get you inspired?  Watch more of the videos that inspire you.  Does this blog inspire you?  Bookmark it!

Whatever it takes to know your worth and be inspired do it!

Invest In Yourself

Take a course or invest in your wardrobe, hair, makeup, and nails. Do not go getting yourself into debt or become a shopaholic because saving money is a really important investment in yourself too. Budget some money for you, give yourself permission so you can know your worth.

Budgeting Because You’re Worth It

Dave Ramsey is an excellent resource for you to learn how to save money and invest in your future because you’re worth it.

What you surround yourself with you will become. Surround yourself with people that will build you up and help you know your worth.  This is an important step in knowing your worth.

I’m not telling you to overspend, I want you to know your worth and be generous with yourself. Some people do spend too much money, but most women hardly will spend any on themselves and that’s no way to know your worth.

Find Ways To Make More Money

Start a blog, start a business, get your talent out in the world to help people, and find a way to monetize it!  Ask for a promotion at work, or find a different job. You are worth it.

Even with all of your efforts, you will have down days, that is for sure, so build a support system of inspiration so you can pick yourself back up and move on to that glorious future of yours.

Having a fabulous life doesn’t happen by accident. You spend an entire lifetime building it. What you did or did not accomplish yesterday doesn’t matter, it’s what you do TODAY that will keep you going.

If you are having trouble starting you may be out of work-life balance. I wrote a post about it, Why work-life balance is so important, how to spot it if you are unbalanced, and how to fix it.

So tell me, do you know your worth? Let me know in the comments some ways you know your worth, I’d love to hear from you.
