KNOW YOUR WORTH

20/3/21
Cristina Proca

You’ve likely heard the saying: “Know your worth, then add tax.”. A thoughtful self-love note reminding you of the meaning of confidence, faith, and dignity. A ray of sunshine indicating that you are brilliant and you deserve more, even if you’re scared to admit it. Hold yourself, and your precious time, and your inestimable energy to high standards. Know that you are meant to be loved and admired for who you are. 


Nothing sounds more powerful than knowing that what you bring to the table is rare. Nothing sounds more impressive than valuing it correctly. There’s a light of virtue existing inside you. And you should liberate it and let it sparkle. 


Here’s what you will realize, once the process of knowing your true worth will come to an end:


  1. When you know your worth, you feel comfortable saying no and setting healthy boundaries.

  2. When you know your worth, you recognize you make a difference. You are skilled and capable. And you are irreplaceable. There’s no substitute for your talent. 

  3. When you know your worth, you invest in yourself.

  4. When you know your worth, you’re selective and scrupulous because settling for less is not a tangible option for you.

  5. When you know your worth, you don't seek constant and consistent reassurance. 

  6. When you know your worth, you trust the decisions you take. You own your choices. You trust your own voice. Your trust your best judgment and let the cards fall where they may.

  7. When you know your worth, you don’t let your weaknesses define you more than your strengths do.

  8. When you know your worth, you don’t over-scrutinize whether or not the world out there likes you. You like yourself. And that’s enough. 

  9. When you know your worth, you have a positive outlook on life. 

  10. When you know your worth, you have realistic expectations and you are more resilient. You don't feel devastated by failures and disappointments. 

  11. When you know your worth, you are in charge of your destiny and you don’t need to rely on someone else to help pave the path for you. 


The power of the mind is the most significant and the most formidable blessing one can have. The fuel for action, success, and well-being. Walk away from those that under-value you. From those who don’t appreciate you. Walk away from anything less than Great. 


Always know what you are looking for. Be honest and treat yourself better. Always know that “Self-worth comes from one thing - thinking that you are worthy.”
