In financial planning we talk about a client’s net worth and we create net worth statements as snapshots of what they are worth financially.
More important, though, is our self-worth and the resulting self-worth statement we create for ourselves and then reflect back out to world around us.
In this episode Aries and I take a break from the interview format and discuss some key contributors to our well-being. At the top of our list is self-worth. We share what noted sages and authors have said about self-worth along with its role in our overall happiness and well-being. We get into the nitty gritty and the effect a positive and a negative self-worth can have on the quality of our lives.
Most notable is how many people struggle with their worthiness. It’s plagued humankind for as long as recorded history, but is not addressed directly and talked about in the mainstream.
Here we explore the subject more deeply to help bring some awareness to your understanding and sense of your own self-worth.
Join us down the rabbit hole on this one. It will be worth the ride.
To your inspired life and more!
