"You are always a valuable, worthwhile human being, not because anybody says so, not because you're successful, not because you make a lot of money, but because you decide to believe it and for no other reason."
~ Wayne Dyer
When you believe in yourself, you unleash the power to create, to achieve, to inspire. You unleash your own potential and authenticity, simply by choosing to believe that you are valuable and worthwhile. When you do that, you share a great gift with the world. Why would you choose to believe anything else?
This week: When you are assailed by doubt or by negative beliefs about yourself, challenge those. Remember they are just things you are choosing to believe. Ask yourself "Is this really true?" When you feel tempted to depend on other people (no matter how near and dear they are to you) or external measurements to define your worth, challenge that. No one except you and God really knows you and your worth. Choose for this week to believe in your value. Don't worry, it won't make you arrogant. When you believe in your worth, you have more to offer. Focus this week on what you have to offer the world, just because you are worthwhile.
