How To Understand Your True Value And Never Sell Yourself Short Again.

Here’s how to understand your true value:

Believe in yourself above all else.

You can’t put a value on yourself unless you believe in yourself first. This means you have to believe the following:

“Your value is directly linked to your belief”

Your potential holds your value.

If you treat yourself like garbage you’ll never appreciate your potential. It’s in your potential that your true value lies. You can’t figure out what you’re worth unless you know what you’re capable of doing.

Not seeing your value is like spitting in your own face.

Most of what you feel comes down to how you treat yourself. If you treat yourself badly then people will copy your behaviour and do the same.

Ask people you’ve worked with what they see your value as.

Once you see your own value, you then want to speak with your peers, mentors and friends to get a sense for what they see your value as.

Value time above all else.

When people hear the word ‘value’ they immediately think of money. The worst thing you can do is focus your value around money. I’ve said it a thousand times before: money won’t make you happy in the long-term.

Anything that ignites your passion fuels your value.

By buying back time, I am able to spend it in the area of my passion (you can do this too).

Final step:

Knowing your value means nothing if you don’t know how to communicate it. You have to communicate your value with respect and remove your ego from the equation.

“Replace ego with a belief in yourself and that you are enough”

Value comes down a lot to how you communicate it and the way you communicate it.
