How do you look at our self worth?
It seems we all come into the world with the belief that we are not good enough; that something is wrong with us. And we base how we feel about ourselves on what accomplishments we are making out there in the world. If we don’t have a job that is successful, a nice house, a perfect relationship, and a good body, we feel less than.
What makes us enough? Are we looking outside of ourselves for our worth? What I find is that people that look outside of themselves to see if they’re okay usually aren’t, but if we look inside at who we are as a person, we can usually feel good enough. I say usually because if I’m behaving in a way that isn’t kind or loving, I still may not feel good enough. But if I’m in alignment with who I am and I’m acting in a loving way and looking truly at my essence, I will always feel good enough.
When mentoring or doing retreats I would say that the limiting belief of I’m not good enough, is on everybody’s list. And usually along with that belief comes the belief of something is wrong with me. Both of these beliefs are important to shift if we want to go out into the world and share our gifts. Because feeling good enough allows us to show up in a more confident way in the world.
When we go into the world feeling good enough, we go out into the world and influence and touch the lives of people in a more positive way. When we are out there making a difference in people’s lives we start to expand our bigness in the world.
When we start from the inside and then go outward, we are coming from a much more authentic and loving place to make a difference in the world. Instead of trying to be big in the world to feed that part of us that doesn’t feel good enough.
Learning to love ourselves will create a feeling of being good enough and being good enough will allow us to help others feel good enough.
