You Are Worth More Than What You Think!



Do you sometimes feel like you are a work in progress? Do you feel the drive to keep improving yourself and then find yourself in a spiral of despair because you just never feel like you measure up to your dream life? For many people, this is their reality. Research has shown that this may be one of the most common causes of weight gain and emotional eating disorders.

“Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body; 
they cannot touch your soul. 
Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 
What is the price of two sparrow - one copper coin? 
But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. 
So don't be afraid; 
you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.“ 
Matthew 10:28-31, NLT.

All of us need to find freedom from the cycle that we are imperfect. While we all have room to grow and develop; the most freeing of all realities about ourselves that we need to absorb and accept is that we are a unique and beautiful human being. There is no one quite like us on this earth and there never will be in all eternity. Once we accept this for ourselves, we can then look for ways to make what is good in us even better. Without this perspective, we will constantly strive to find some self-acceptance and won’t move much beyond this point in our life.

An old African proverb reminds us that: "if we don’t have any enemies inside us, then no external enemies can cause us to harm or hurt." Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who is considered the father of the nation of India, and is known throughout the world as Mahatma Gandhi, was a true believer of self-worth and human dignity. He was once quoted as saying, "Nobody can hurt me, without my permission."

David Goggins, the author of the self-help memoir book called, Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds, where he offers practical advice on how to overcome your obstacles. He said this in one of his quotes: "We live in an external world. Everything you have to see it, touch it. If you can for the rest of your life, live inside yourself - to find greatness you have to go inside."

David Goggins himself was able to transform himself by overcoming obesity, cracked childhood foundation, and other obstacles, and on January 19, 2013, he broke the world record for most pull-ups done within 24 hours by completing 4,030 pull-ups in 17 hours.

Let me ask you a familiar question: have you noticed that when things are going well on the inside and you are feeling secure and happy with life, things that go wrong in your life don’t seem to be so bad? But when you are feeling bad about yourself, things are so different and your self-esteem becomes lower. The world seems to take on a much darker feeling and it’s more difficult to cope when things are not going the right way.

Learning to love yourself and to appreciate the uniqueness you are, is often the first stage of learning how to control your weight, feel confident in studying or changing careers, or learning a new hobby, or starting your own business, or even vying for a much-coveted political post. Many of the things we procrastinate over, that are for our own benefit and enrichment are often the things we don’t do, because perhaps deep inside we don’t think we are good enough or worthy enough to do these things for ourselves.

You should know your own worth. Be confident about yourself because self-confidence is a key ingredient for your success in life and entrepreneurial endeavors. It is easy to become demoralized, frustrated, and resentful if you lack self-confidence.

Self-confidence is concerned with how you feel about your abilities. You should not be scared to explore the uncharted territories, take calculated risks, and take on to answer the difficult questions. A confident person knows, deep inside himself that he is equal or more to the challenge ahead.

Self-confidence, however, is not a personal trait that either you have it or you don't. A person can have high self-confidence in one situation and totally lack in another area. This is one of those skills that can be developed by training and learning.

Challenge those of your negative thoughts and starting tomorrow - Choose one thing you want to do for you. Because guess what, you are worth it! Most people have to battle the self-talk and rarely say anything nice about themselves. Try looking in the mirror when you wake up and tell your reflection what you would tell your best friend... You are worth it!

Here's an audiovisual of a church sermon about the importance of having a balanced, healthy sense of self-worth and what is your worth in the eyes of the one who really matters, the creator. The preacher uses the Scripture text from Matthew 10:29-31.
