If someone asks you how you define your worth, what would you say? And if asked how you determine your worth - in other words - do you chose it or do you allow it to happen randomly, what would you say?
For example, if you spend a tremendous amount of time with your career, chances are this feeds into your sense of value or importance. Perhaps, you invest greatly into your relationships - with your spouse, partner, or with friends- this is an indication that these people bring meaning and purpose into your life. As you look over your worth circle, take notice if there are people and things that you are investing into that do not enhance or augment your worth or in fact diminish it! At the same time, pay attention to those people and things that do fuel your sense of value! This is important information. You will want to keep this in mind as you move forward and make changes in your worth circle!
Right now, make a "new worth circle"! You can make deliberate choices about where, in what and in whom you are going to invest yourself and to what degree! And, you are going to work on divesting yourself or removing yourself from people and things that do not enhance or nourish your sense of worth! As you are making this new worth circle, ask yourself this question, Who is the most important female in your life?" Do you know the answer? YOU!!! Start now, fill in the circle by investing in you and in the people and things that you believe in - that are healthy - that build you up - that augment you - that allow you to respect yourself and your choices!! And, start acting upon it, today!!
Remember, we are only as good for others as we are to ourselves! You are worth your investment!
