Inner Growth Word of the Day: Self-worth
Dictionary.com definition: (n.) 1. the sense of one’s own value or worth as a person; self-esteem; self-respect.
Self-worth in a sentence: The self-worth you have for yourself can vary and be influenced by the value you’ve been given by your loved ones growing up.
Self-worth in action: The value you give yourself is equal to your self-worth. This value can change over time depending on you.
Self-worth and inner growth: If you measure your self-worth and pose questions as to why it is high or low, good or bad, and so on; you work on inner growth because in your exploration you look to yourself and face your questions and/or challenges based on you.
Self-worth and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I measure self-worth? What do I think my self-worth says about the value I hold for myself? Who has influenced my self-worth the most? How much do I affect my self-worth? When did I start thinking about my self-worth? In what ways have I worked on my self-worth? Are there areas of my self-worth that require more attention than others? If so, what areas?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with self-worth at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it and to yourself. Next to each word listed make a note of the feeling associated to it and then what actions you want to take to transform that feeling and reach the level of self-worth in that area that you want to reach.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about your self-worth and notice if there are any specific thoughts or situations that come to mind. Then dive into each separately and let the feelings for each flow; and here too, if other thoughts or situations come to mind write them down and come back to them.
