Know Your Worth

I’m finding it more and more difficult to know my worth.

Just like any product, it is a fundamental marketing principle that anything you add to it should be increasing the products value, not decreasing or leaving it the same.

In the same way, I feel like the more skills I acquire, the more valuable my work would be. But what if I’m not actually increasing in value, but decreasing? What if some of the skills I thought were fundamental are actually not as important anymore and are leaving me less and less competitive by the minute? How do you know how much you’re worth?

It is always important to keep your mind active and try to learn new things on a day to day basis, but I feel like I have reached an impasse of not knowing what should be my next step.

Do you ever feel like that? How do you get through this and into the next step?

I’m hoping life is leading me in the right path – but I can’t help but think we should always be paving our own path, not waiting for it to happen.

  1. Hi! Thanks for liking my post (“7 Habits of Doomed Caregivers”). I think you write very well. I don’t know how old you are, but I can tell you something I’ve learned: you are as valuable as you believe you are. No amount of skill acquisition will increase your value. I’m one of the most accomplished people I know, but I’m the only one who truly values my broad, deep skill set. I take great pride in what I’ve accomplished and how I have turned my personal tragedies into lessons that help others. Every person is different. Please find joy in what you do and allow yourself the pleasure of feeling the accomplishment. Focus on living in your zone of genius, and you will live as happy a life as you allow yourself to. You deserve it. Believe it.

  2. One thing I’ve learned is that we cannot depend on accomplishments and people to give us our worth. We must value ourselves. But most importantly I know I’m valuable and worthy because God says I am. Great post, thanks!

  3. Awesome questions. Part of the problem with answering them ties into our foundational capacity to grow throughout life. Who we are today is built upon what we learned yesterday, but not fully reliant on the those aspects of the past that we may or may not be able to learn from.
    Furthermore, we are creatures of future dreams. It is from this perspective of foresight that we set the stage to understand our worth by some future aspiration. It can be a very difficult road to traverse, but sometimes we have to accept the lessons from the past at face value so that we may release their capacity to hold us back from our future dreams. Only then can we get on with our true vocation of living and growing towards the person that we want to become in the future. Self worth is an intrinsic factor and has nothing to do with how one is perceived. From the outside, because this factor we cannot control. Again, those were deeply engaging and great questions.
