We never give ourselves enough credit. I mean, when was the last time you were actually proud of yourself? Not by your mama’s morals or society’s standards… but by yours?
I personally only have this issue in a few aspects of my life. Take this perfect example, if I go on a job interview and inquiry about the pay grade of the position. I automatically calculate if it’s worth my value. It’s innate, I can measure this and decide whether to stay or walk out. (That only happened once)
Conversely, when pricing out things I create to sell… I lowball myself into the gutter.
So where’s the disconnect? Both scenarios contain a barter system type of exchange. Services/goods in return for funds. And yet… there’s a difference. Moreover, my peers and I realize this is a form of insanity. (It’s an epidemic!)
So here‘s my message to you and to myself when I really need to remember.
Not only are you exactly where you need to be. You are also feeling everything you are supposed to and doing all the things needed to get to where you want to be. Those people you look up to and learn from… your idols… all had their struggles. And they owned them. They used who they were and all they had left to become… your idol.
And most importantly stop focusing on your money. Sometimes their is more to gain from an situation. The money will roll in… at some point you will realize that your personal worth is much more valuable than someone’s view of it. If not, I’m sure someone will remind you of so.
