Self-worth. Have it? Need it? Want it?
I want to talk to you about something SO IMPORTANT that's a big part of living the life that you deserve.
And I have a fun and empowering tip for putting it into action … today. Not tomorrow. I said today.
First: this “something” is SELF-WORTH, and it fuels SO MUCH in your life. It’s all about realizing how important and valuable you are. And also how WORTHY you are of being treated well and living a healthy and fit life. It goes along with self-confidence which I am finishing a blog post about right now.
It’s a little different than self-esteem. And it is the first step for self-confidence.
Here’s a perfectly fitting example that will totally go along with what we do in this group <3 (how convenient)
Let’s say you try on a new outfit, and you don’t like the way your arms look, or maybe you’re not pleased with your midsection. You might even realize you have low self-esteem in these areas – i.e., they don’t make you feel confident. hmmmmm...
But SELF-WORTH lets you know that you are SO MUCH MORE than the state of your arms or midsection.
AND ... it can help you recognize that you want something different for yourself.
This can be the kick in the ass that can spark the change you need to make – because you know you are WORTHY of feeling amazing!
It’s the same as when you set boundaries for how you allow people to treat you, or decide to go after a promotion, or any other goal you want because you are worth it!
Here’s one of my FAVORITE exercises for self-worth AND putting it to action:
Don't worry....This is actually really fun to do. PROMISE! (and it works the best if you follow every step and let your imagination go. Suck it up and use your imagination!)
1. Imagine you and I are having a drink together exactly 12 months from today …
If you had your best 12 months EVER and stayed on track with your goals, what would you envision your life to look like? What are the exact goals you want to reach? Take a minute to think about them, and write them down.
2. Now, imagine how living that way will FEEL to you … what your days will look like … what your energy levels look like? What kind of new confidence will you have? How will you feel when you go out with your friends? Or in your relationships? Write it all down!
3. Next, once you have crystal clear picture on what your 12-month goals are and how it feels, think about the DECISIONS you’re making 12 months from now.
What choices are you making? How are you spending your time? How often are you working out? What are you doing for your nutrition? How are you showing up in meetings? Write it down.
4. And lastly, WHY WAIT 12 months to start making those decisions!?
If you want to create a new reality, you have to make different decisions TODAY.
EMBODY the person you will become in 12 months, and live as that person RIGHT NOW! It’s time to LIVE YOUR LIFE AS IF you have already reached those goals.
That’s the fastest and surest way to achieve your goals.
And let me tell you, this is one of my most FAVORITE things to help people with!
Hence why FIerceMODA came to be <3
So will you do it?
Will you look at yourself and decide what it is that you will change to gain more self- worth?
