3 Sure Fire Ways To Know Your Worth
I’ve had my battles with self worth issues. Even as confident as I am.
I used to believe that an increase in income or a windfall will make everything better and loved the status that came from the things that money helped me buy. I used whatever credit and money I had to buy things that would impress others.
I believed money would solve all of my problems.
And with that belief came the presence of ongoing anxiety about my money status that occurred because my self-worth was linked to my net worth. I took crazy financial risks because I wanted to have the stories of big gains to impress people.
Little by little I had to make changes internally on both my conscious and subconscious mind around money and externally in the terms of shifting my business model as well as shifting the way I treat and pay attention to money.
One of the results is that I’ve become truly comfortable setting prices, and talking about money with clients and my family. As a result, I am much more successful as a business owner.
The truth is HOW you feel about money can have a significant impact on your overall mental and emotional well-being as well as your ability to generate consistent income.
So Here are my 3 tips:
- Get clear about your worth. State it, repeat it, own it. “Don’t mess around,” and be confident of the value that you provide. Build your self worth bank.
- Accept discomfort. Building a sense of self-worth can be challenging—even painful. Remember this…Everything you truly want is right outside of your comfort zone.
- Earn more now. Women earn 20% less than men. The fastest way to change your net worth now by earning more. Set lofty goals. Raise your fees. Ask for a raise.
- Never believe your “limitations. Stick with your vision, hire people to help and support you — You’re a wealthy entrepreneur. Wealthy Entrepreneurs Don’t Do It Alone!
