There are many definitions but most of them have to do with doing or having. What about just being? What if we are worthy simply because we exist?
If one believes that we are intrinsically not worthy, what would each of us have to do to become worthy? Could we truly come up with something that we would accept as the ultimate arbiter of determining our worthiness? And since we working with the unworthy mindset, would the unworthy mindset be capable of seeing what we did, said, accomplished or acquired as being the item that transcends us into worthiness? Or would we judge what occurred as still not worthy enough of being worthy? And if we do somehow become worthy in this act, what does that say for the rest of humanity? It’s a no win situation.
So what prompts so many people to believe that worthiness is only given to a select few? There is nothing wrong with feeling worth. The problem lies in not realizing that you ARE worthy. You need to consider yourself worthy in EVERY fashion possible and never accept anything less than what you deserve. We are worthy from the mere fact that we were born, from our first breathe, we are worthy.
Until we accept our own worthiness, we will not be able to attract into our lives all that we deserve. This applies to happiness, joy, love, finances, health, well-being. Every aspect of our lives are affected. You can read all the self-help books on self esteem you want but until you get that you are worthy, it may not stick.
To accept the concept that we are worthy, one big thing we can do is let go of judgments. We look at each other and we decide whether we think someone is worthy of what they have or don’t have. And when we do that, we don’t see that we are judging ourselves as well. Because we can’t recognize in another what we ourselves don’t own in some way. That makes it hard to accept, but if we want growth, and if we want our life to change, we have to look within and recognize what we do or think or feel that doesn’t serve us.
Begin telling yourself you are worthy. There is nothing you need to prove, do or say. You are worthy. I am worthy. Give yourself that validation. When you do, you own it then and it’s yours forever.
I found a wonderful Oscar Wilde quote: “Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” One of those is your intrinsic worthiness.
Ponder this. What is the worth of a child? If a child is worthy when he/she is born, when does the child lose worth and who determines that?
So what belief stops you from believing you are not worthy?
