Each one of our stories is unique and personable. We go through life in a constant state of choosing. Even by making no choice we are choosing. When we stand idly by and do nothing about our circumstances and dreams/goals, we have made a choice. You choose if you value you. What knowing your value can do for you, can set you and the people you connect with up for huge success.

I think before we can value someone else, we need to value ourselves. If you can’t genuinely care for yourself, how do you expect to show that to another person? Which leads me to my first point…

Knowing your value means you know who you are and have direction.

Take opportunities to get to know yourself, what you like/dislike, passionate for/about, strengths/weaknesses. Don’t hold yourself back. Take opportunities that may scare you a little, if it has the potential to teach you something good. I think so many people are scared by the little things, like making a speech in front of a large crowd or going out dancing when you know little to no steps. I believe these type of acts build character, show us who we are and give our lives direction.

Knowing your value means you treat people with honor.

Seeing how a person treats another person who can offer nothing to them is a sign of not only a persons character but of how they value and honor themselves. Honor is defined as having “high respect.” It’s easier to have a respect for a person that has their life together and is what we aspire to be like. But what about the person that doesn’t have good qualities or anything to offer us?

Actions and patterns reveal the heart so be aware. People have the capacity to demonstrate how they value themselves based off of how they treat those who can offer nothing to them.

I’m not saying to go love and care for someone who is not willing to receive and who is harmful. I wholeheartedly believe in boundaries to protect both people. What I am saying, is that we need to be purposeful with who we reach and do it from a heart of honor and care. Our time is limited so we ought to make the best use of it. Be mindful of using your time to care for yourself and those who you are meant to reach.

Those that value themselves will make good choices with thought and care.

A person that knows their value has a plan of action and has thought about all the pieces of how to get to where they want to be. They see their life as a way of building on their dreams. They research, observe what choices work for others and set out to accomplish their dreams and goals. Focused and determined, these smart people are unwilling to allow the hard work or opposition stop them.

On the flipside, if someone is continually acting with impulse, that can be a red flag that they do not value themselves or others. There is a time where acting impulsive or “spontaneous” is warranted and useful. When you see someone making a series of impulsive decisions that wrecks lives, that is a clear indication that they don’t know or don’t care to value themselves or others. They are not fully aware of the consequences or destruction that comes along with the terrible choices.

A person of value will realize that their life matters too much and will not waste their time on choices that set them back. Click To Tweet

The awesome news is that there is hope. If someone is teachable and willing to learn from their bad choices. It could take awhile for them to get to where they want to be. Bad choices lead to bad results. However, that doesn’t mean that good can’t come out of it. Sometimes that can bring clarity to what is important and worth pursuing.

Pursue positive, life giving values and you will see how much value you really do possess. Every person has the potential to know their value and to be a huge success. Is that you? Will that be you?

Be blessed & bless others

  1. This is so true! I highly agree with what you said about before we can value someone else, we need to value ourselves. Once I realized that I deserve to be valued, everything changed for me. Great write up!

  2. “Knowing your value means you know who you are and have direction”. This is absolutely so true. Knowing your value is so crucial in elevating your life and knowing what you deserve out of life.

  3. If you don’t know your value others will not value you. It took a long time for me to get to that point. Walking with my head high and shoulders back and accepting flaws was the first step ! I also believe that no one will love you until you love yourself!

  4. I LOVE this. I think people (especially women) can’t distinguish between “knowing their value” from being over-confident or egotistical. It’s almost like people are afraid of sounding full of themselves, so they overcompensate by more or less berating themselves.

  5. Honestly, I loved reading this post, it motivated and gave me a reality check. Especially the first paragraph where you stated even by doing nothing we’re making a choice. That’s so true, yet so easily dismissed. On a journey to love myself, a work in progress but this post is definitely a step in the right direction. Thank you for sharing dear.

  6. I couldn’t agree with you more. Loving yourself is the foundation of a happy, healthy lifestyle. It helps us not only treat ourselves with respect and kindness but to feel more confudent and form meaningful relationships ♡. This message is so important! Thank you for sharing it 😊

  7. My favorite quote from this post is “People have the capacity to demonstrate how they value themselves based off of how they treat those who can offer nothing to them.” It’s SO true! Thank you for sharing your wise words.

  8. I love this post so much! I recently quit my job to become a full-time blogger and I’ve been so emotional lately because it’s so daunting but I know I have made the right choice and reading this has reminded me that I should value myself and have faith in the choice I have made. Thanks for sharing 🙂 xx
