So many people have goals to “finally be financially free,” “become wealthy,” “win the lottery so that I can never work again.” No one really wants to struggle financially; it isn’t fun at all. So, how come we get caught up in wishing wealth without being able to manifest it? How come year after year financial abundance seems out of reach?
It’s easy to blame circumstance for financial lack. But, often times, we overlook a critical component of financial success – self worth.
Self worth is how you see yourself in the world and how you feel like you should be treated based on the value that you create. Self worth is how you treat and talk to yourself everyday. Self worth causes you to make decisions about what you are willing to accept. Self worth causes you to raise or lower your standards.
Having high self worth doesn’t mean being entitled. Entitlement is believing that you deserve something because of “who you are,” even though you haven’t worked for it or added any value. Self worth is understanding that you values lead you to make decisions that will keep you stuck or propel you forward.
Think about your self worth when it comes to money. Do you view yourself as a “broke person?” In your internal guiding system telling you that you are only worth taking a low-end job, living paycheck to paycheck, and keeping your financial house in disarray?
Or, is your internal guiding system informing you that you are someone who respects and values money? You are the type of person that increases their skills to earn a high-paying job. You spend the time and effort investing in financial education because you are worth it. You are worth the abundance that financial mastery creates.
To achieve financial success, update your internal operating system to align your self worth to be deserving of wealth. You’ll make the decisions and do the work to attract wealth, instead of only wishing for it.
