If you are not feeling good enough, you might want to start considering who or what you are giving your power away to.
This is the second blog post in this series so you may want to go back and read the first post here (opens in a new window) or jump to it after you have read this one as the link will also be at the end of this post.
Each blog post in this series is also a more detailed expansion of a related podcast episode and if you want to listen to each episode as you read through the posts, then please do! I will link to the related podcast in each one and also link up all the posts so that you can get to them easily if you are eager to delve more into this subject.
So this second post is an expansion of this podcast here:
So how do we feel more worthy... because it can sometimes feel like developing a high sense of self worth is a little bit elusive.
Almost like it's always slightly out of our reach - and every time we feel like we've got there, something happens that sends us back down that spiral of feeling like we are not enough...
...but in actual fact, this sense of self worth is so close that we can't touch it, and the reason for that is - because it's inside of us!
Yet how many of us continue to look outside of ourselves to feel worthy and deserving?
So you may want to jot this down on paper as it will help with the exercise coming up in the next post.... but start thinking about this:
WHO or WHERE does your sense of self worth come from?
Really be honest with yourself here, because if you don't currently feel like you are enough, then it is likely that you are relying on external sources to feel this sense of worthiness. So what external source are you giving your power away to?
Here are some external sources that you might 'perceive' contribute to you feeling good about yourself currently:
Your partner / spouse
Your work colleagues
Your moods on any give day
Any of these things (and more) can feel like they are a source of our worthiness and sense of deserving, but in fact they are not.
If we rely totally on any of these things to feel worthy and deserving, we are never gonna feel that sense of fulfilment and if you said yes to one or more of these things, then you are looking for self worth in all the wrong places!
So if you are not feeling good enough, you are out of touch with the fact that this is an internal job! Feeling worthy and deserving is all about you...
... it's all about that sense of self love that you've got. It's all about that inner knowing that you are enough.
You are already perfect, whole and complete just as you are.
It's all about knowing that YOU are source energy and therefore you are already perfect.... and if we strip away all that external stuff and all you have left is this internal sense of feeling worthy and deserving...
That is enough! YOU are enough!
The quicker you get this, the quicker you can align with all all the things that you ARE worthy and deserving of in your life - as I said in the last post (see link at the end of this post...).
This is huge! This sense of feeling worthy and deserving underpins so many things in our lives - love, abundance, career, the way we interact with people, our friendship groups, our spouse - everything!
And once we finally get this...
We are no longer competing with anyone else to feel worthy.
We no longer have to achieve anything specific to feel worthy.
We no longer have to look a certain way to feel worthy.
We no longer have to seek anyone else's approval to feel worthy.
Because we then know that we are enough just as we are.
Because true self worth is internal.
We were born worthy.
And this means, that anything we choose to do outside of that, any external stuff, is just because we wanna do it!
Just because it feeds our soul.
Just because it feels good to do, with no strings attached.
So let everything outside of you just be the cherry on the cake - don't let it be the core of who you are, because you can only get that from inside you.
Now doesn't that feel good?
