Most of us aren’t entirely sure how to define our self worth. It’s a tricky concept but it’s one worth investigating because self worth has a lot to do with our confidence, our self concept, and the way we view ourselves.
Self love is a fantastic way to promote better self esteem, but sadly, it just isn’t as prevalent today as all the hashtags would have us believe.
We’re going to dive right into what self worth really means and how you can grow your self worth for confidence that doesn’t quit.
What Does Self Worth Mean To You?
Today, a huge chunk of our self image is tied up in social media. We measure our self worth by way of likes, shares, and the number of comments we get on our posts.
But what does self worth really mean to you?
We have to learn to define ourselves by our own standards—not the standards of others. We seek approval outside ourselves when we should be looking inward.
We rely on the instant feedback from our friends on social media to affirm our self worth. But self worth can’t really be measured this way.
Instead of putting our self esteem in the hands of others, we need to find a way to determine our self worth in a way that empowers us.
How Your Self Worth Determines Your Success
How we feel about ourselves plays a huge role in our long term success. When you believe you can succeed, those around you take notice.
As Marisa Peer, Author of Mindvalley’s Uncompromised Life Program says, “When you believe in you, everyone else believes in you, too.”
Ultimately, you’re the only person that can determine your self worth. And a lot of that has to do with how you feel about who you are in the present moment.
When we reach for self love instead of self criticism, we affirm our worth. And that helps builds confidence like nothing else.
