Self-Worth Creates Success

Even at a basic level there is a strong link between your self-worth and the level of wealth you're able to generate, simply because your self-worth dictates your worth 'threshold'. This is the amount of money you believe yourself to be worthy of receiving, and it creates a built-in upper limit in your business that can be tough to break.

How To Grow Your Self-Worth

The most important aspect of any attempt to grow your self-worth is to work on it consistently through self-development. It can feel frustrating, and you may be tempted to push yourself into big leaps, trying to talk yourself into feeling worthy of new levels of success and income before you’re mindset has caught up and is genuinely ready for them.

Aim to grow your self-worth by small amounts on a regular basis, little and often, rather than shooting for huge leaps in growth that prove to be unsustainable.

There are several great ways you can do this:

Get Out Of Bad Habits

Start to build your awareness of bad habits that are diminishing your self-worth. It’s easy to get stuck in negative mindsets, and often they’re so ingrained we don’t even consider them to be negative. Here are a few examples… Constantly taking care of everyone else at the expense of yourself.

Stand Up For Yourself and Set Clear Boundaries

In business we can easily fail to stand up for ourselves when we have clients who are being completely unreasonable in their demands and we’re killing ourselves trying to accommodate them, when really we should be putting firmer boundaries in place.

Establishing clear boundaries will not only improve your self-worth, it will help your clients to value you more highly, and make you more productive and efficient.

That’s a win all around!

Here are a few simple ways you can set clear boundaries in your business:

· Establish working hours and stick to them.

· Only check your email once or twice a day, at set times, and never outside your working hours.

· Take regular time off, even if you’re buried in work (you’re no good to anyone suffering from burnout!).

· Include clear terms and conditions in your contracts and/or on your website, which outline what constitutes a ‘reasonable request’, and what doesn’t. Make it clear that anything falling outside the reasonable may not be possible, and will incur additional fees.

Just as we all need to be heard, we also all have some form of self-talk going on. An internal voice that helps us think things through, plan what we’re doing, or simply observe what’s going on.

Create A Worthy Space

It’s probably not news to you that your internal life is often reflected in your external world.

When you’re stressed, rundown, or feeling ill, your house often gets markedly more untidy. Dishes go unwashed, floors rarely vacuumed, etc, things pile up because doing them requires more time or energy than you can muster.

The mess in your mind can easily transfer to a real life mess.

Likewise, when your house is untidy or unclean, or you’re in a workspace or environment that’s unpleasant, it can make you feel stressed.

The link between the internal and external is undeniable, so creating an environment for yourself that makes you feel valued and worthy is really important.

Editor's note

American novelist Louisa May Alcott said it best when she said “Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”
