Identifying your Self-Worth

Posted on: August 17, 2013


One of my pet peeves is when I give someone a compliment and they immediately reject it by criticizing themselves.

I don’t see it as being humble or modest or any other word attributed to disliking praise. I just wish the person I complimented would take the compliment, feel better about themselves and walk away.

My second pet peeve is low self-esteem. Because I find this hard to relate to, I want to help those with low self-esteem find their worth.

Realize that even if you grew up around debbie downers and feel as if you don’t have any thing unique and talented to contribute to those who come into contact with you, you’re wrong.

We become more like the people and information we surround ourselves with. Although there is nothing that can be done about your childhood or who and what you were surrounded with, the beauty of growing up is that you are able to change all that. All it takes is determination and a strong will to begin that journey of forgiveness and understanding your worth. We all have something to give, we all have traits and personalities which set us apart, it’s not about the comparison game its about living each day to the best of your abilities because NO ONE can give to the world what you can.

Today’ prompt struck a chord inside me:

What is your USP Unique Special Proposition that sets you apart from the crowd?

Who am I?

I’m hardcore because I believe if you put your mind to it and work hard enough, you can do anything.

I’m am against traditional norms and social status because I believe we were created unique for a reason and there is no need to try to clone yourself to society. There are too many naysayers in the world and the best way to prove them wrong is to take the road less traveled and show them with your success.

I am emphatic, everyone starts at a different level in reaching their goals and no two journeys are the same. This is why I love to hear stories from others.

I don’t believe in impossibilities. We’ve seen abstract ideas become possibilities and vague concepts turned into reality. All it takes is the right mindset.

Today’s challenge is to fill in the blanks of the sentence below:

I am unique and different because I provide _______ which no one else in my field provides. No one else can or will provide this because ______.

What helps you stop the cycle of self-doubt and take steps to achieving your goals?

I write books that inspire and encourage children. I’m extremely happy to be able to do that, but I can’t truthfully say I do it better than anyone else. All I can say is that every book is my best effort, because that’s what my readers deserve.

As an author I bring a unique vision to the fantasy genre. Though there’s much in my past that was difficult, I recognize it’s in my past, has made me stronger, and now I’m not afraid to draw from it. Too, the bad has only given me a deeper appreciation for the good and the good is everywhere. EVERYWHERE. It’s only our perspective that hides it. We all have a gift, but too often we ignore it because we allow pain to blind us, pain that manifests as bitterness, envy, self-depreciation, or countless other faults. I’ve a gift, a gift I too long diminished until I learned, accepted, and embraced.
