Understand Your Self-Worth.
Use these strategies to maintain positive self-worth, regardless of your circumstances:
- Find the cause. What is the cause of the circumstance in your life? Sometimes, limiting beliefs can serve as warning signs that help you avoid danger. What can you learn from this so you avoid triggering a similar situation in the future?
- If the cause of your situation is unclear, ask friends and family for their input. Others see your life from a different perspective, and their input can be valuable in determining the root of your difficulty.
- Get past the blame game. You can often be your own worst critic. Fortunately, negative self-talk often has very little basis in reality. Choose to replace the doubts of your inner critic with more productive thinking.
Once a negative thought has taught you its intended lesson, it has served its purpose.
- If you choose to hold onto those negative thoughts, they will begin to form a negative self-image in your mind. This unbalanced view of your talents and strengths holds you back.
- Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts about your circumstances, learn the lesson and resolve to move on. Find out what you can do differently to avoid a repeat of your present situation. Then, when negative thoughts enter your mind, choose to replace your self-talk with productive thoughts instead.
- Give yourself some grace. Recognize that you‘re human. Everyone makes mistakes, but your attitude determines your altitude in life. You are valuable regardless of your present predicament. You are worthwhile even when you slip up or falter. Your circumstances and experiences provide feedback and an opportunity to learn and grow. Click To Tweet
- Make the most of it. When you recognize that you‘re valuable despite your circumstances, you‘ll begin to make the most of every opportunity. Stumbling blocks you face can become stepping stones to the success you deserve.
- Ask for help. Loved ones and friends often see strengths in you that go without notice. Ask them what they believe your strengths are. Everyone has something of value to contribute.
Once you recognize your unique talents, gifts, and abilities, you‘ll see life in a whole new way.
You‘ll seek opportunities to use your talents to bless others. You‘ll gain confidence that comes from conquering challenges that once made you cringe.
Make the decision to find your strengths.
Learn from everything and experience the joy you were created to experience.
Instead of tying your self-worth to your circumstances, choose to see things as they really are. You were created with unique talents and gifts.
When you find those gifts within yourself and put them to use, you‘ll know how valuable you truly are.
