Are You Someone Who Wrestles With The Feeling That You Are Not Worthy of Achieving Your Goals?
If you don’t, you are occupying some rare air, and are quite unique in this way.
Maxwell Maltz said, low self-worth is like driving through life with your hand brake on.
Most of the rest of us have to deal with this issue on an ongoing basis. And it can have a devastating effect on the life we live.
But why do you think many of us struggle for self-worth?
…Because you have been conditioned to feel this way.
To Grow Your Self-Worth Over Time, Do These 7 Small Things Regularly:
1. Learning is a great thing.
Read a book (or take an online course) on a topic you’ve always wanted to learn more about.
Learning new things stretches yourself, keeps your mind active and most definitely boosts your self-worth.
There are two primary things you have to do…feed David and starve Goliath.
You feed your inner David by nourishing your mind on a daily basis.
It has to be consistent for two reasons. The first is that there is still a measure of negativity coming at you daily no matter what you do.
And second, you have years of this stuff living deep in your head that you have to peel back and discard.
You do this by reading, listening to, and watching positive, inspiring, uplifting, and growth-oriented material.
I know the power of this, because this has been quite a journey for me, given I come from a deep place of low self-worth that has taken decades of doing exactly what I am suggesting for you, to balance out.
The second thing is starving Goliath. The more you starve your Goliath, the smaller it will get. The way you do this is minimize your exposure to negativity as much as possible.
Stay away from the media in general. I’m not saying put your head in the sand, I’m saying don’t spend very much time on their negative sensationalism.
You also might consider the people in your life. Who is negative? If at all possible, avoid them.
If they are too close to you to avoid, try to put them in proper perspective. Their view is not your reality. It’s theirs.
This works… You just have to work at it!
2. Attend a networking event and focus on how you can be helpful to others.
Rather than being nervous about your own issues, focus on how to help others.
Instead of going along with the aim of trying to sell yourself to others, why not change your approach and simply go along to see how you can help the people you meet?
By doing this, you’ll come across as calm, confident and someone that people will want to turn to again and again.
3. Practice good personal hygiene.
It’s amazing what kind of impact a shower, grooming, and decent clothes can make on a person’s mental well-being.
Self-care often suffers when a person doesn’t feel good about themselves.
That trickles down and fuels depression, which continues to feed one’s negative feelings of self-worth.
Maintaining grooming and hygiene standards, no matter how much you may not want to, can help improve one’s perception of themselves over time.
4. Visualize yourself as you want to be.
“What the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.” — Napoleon Hill
Visualization is the technique of seeing an image of yourself that you are proud of, in your own mind.
When we struggle with low self-worth, we have a poor perception of ourselves that is often inaccurate.
Practice visualizing a fantastic version of yourself, achieving your goals.
5. Shift to an equality mentality.
“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.” — Marilyn Monroe
People with low self-worth see others as better or more deserving than themselves.
Instead of carrying this perception, see yourself as being equal to everyone.
They are no better or more deserving than you.
Make a mental shift to an equality mentality and you will automatically see an improvement in your self-worth.
6. Learn to catch yourself when you think you’re not good enough.
Learn to catch yourself every time you tell yourself that you can’t have, won’t get or aren’t good enough to get what you want.
Instead, tell yourself that you can have, will get and are good enough to get what you want.
Mindset is everything. Make sure yours is positive and dynamic.
7. Start a regular exercise program
Regular exercise is an important part of maintaining a healthy mind and body.
It can make you feel powerful physically, which helps to boost one’s confidence and mental strength.
An exercise program doesn’t need to be super complicated to provide meaningful benefits.
Even a 30 minute walk, three times a week can significantly help combat depression and improve one’s sense of self-worth.
Life is guaranteed to not always be a barrel of laughs.
Instead, it’s much more like a roller coaster. There will be ups and downs, slow periods and super-fast periods.
The art of living is to know how to handle whatever comes you way.
The best way to achieve this is by developing an iron-core that is unhindered by the topsy-turvy outside world.
