Why You Need to See Yourself as Valuable


By Elliot Caleira

Everybody desires to accomplish more, to be at the top of the world, and to get attention among the crowd. No one ever wishes negative things for himself or herself. Despite all the positive wishes everybody wants, very few attain them or are working toward them. Most people do not realize that they are their own barriers to their destiny. In most cases, you will underrate yourself and visualize that you are not worthy enough to reach a particular goal in life. The key to this problem is to start seeing yourself as valuable as anyone else.

Why is self-confidence important?
Seeing yourself worthy will go a long way in boosting your self-esteem. Gone are the days where motivational speakers used to be key players in ensuring that your esteem is always kept at par. Forget everything and start working on your availability if you want to see yourself at the top. What is the purpose of self-esteem? It acts as the fuel to your normal moves. It digs out the energy in you whenever you are working on something. Whether you are a manager or a student at the school, self-esteem will give you the ideas on how to increase the sales of the company or improve your performance at school.

Seeing yourself as valuable means that you believe in yourself. This is an essential aspect in unleashing the power you have within. The power that only you can feel the strength of. The value you have for yourself will even increase the moment you start feeling the possibility of your strength. Imagine if Mark Zuckerberg had doubted the future of Facebook? Maybe there could be no Facebook today. See yourself valuable despite your social, economic or political status.

How can you build self-confidence?
Another important reason as to why you should start seeing the value in you is to boost your confidence. Confidence comes if you see possibilities, when hope prevails in your visions. This implies that you will be ready to try new things or you will do things in an extra way, different from what most expected from you. This also means that you will acquire a lot of experience from the new things you will be trying. With time more confidence builds up, increasing your possibilities. Seeing yourself as valuable should not be something to debate on. Dive into the ocean and enjoy its calmness.

Success has for long been defined differently by different individuals. A CEO would define success as the growth of the company's profit margins. A schooling teen might consider himself fortunate when he passes a rigorous exam while a fresh graduate may say so after he hooks a well-paying job in a respected company. The sturdy yet simple thing people have failed to accept is seeing themselves as prosperous as any other.

But how can you see yourself as valuable?
Many ask this question. Maybe they know the why aspect but fail to understand the how part. Seeing yourself useful is a process that develops from training your brain so. If your psychology is into winning, then you will automatically see the value in yourself. It does not necessarily have to be that of your current position but even that of your future. One which no one else sees.

Never compare yourself with anyone. See yourself as a different entity. Let your focus be on yourself. Just like the way diatomaceous earth cleans water in a water tank, train your brain to filter all thoughts that pull you back. Set goals that are a bit unrealistic and push yourself to attain them. You might be amazed to find out that you can accomplish what you thought to be impossible.

Seeing yourself valuable is a crucial aspect in achieving many goals in your life. It's never too late and neither is it early. You deserve a better position in your job. You deserve better grades in school, and you also deserve a better life than the one you are living. Nothing is impossible for someone who knows his endless possibilities.
