You Can not Give what You Do not Have

You can’t love another human being unless you love and accept yourself. You cannot give what you don’t have. Your self-worth is very important. I am not referring to glorious vanity or your thinking more highly of yourself that you ought. I am referring to the mentality of accepting yourself wholly and without prejudice. It is a treasure and a delight when I meet someone who knows their own worth. When you are aware of who you really are (not who others think you are), you refuse to accept anything less than what you are worth. When I talk about ‘worth’ here, I am referring to your value. Surely, you are priceless.

There is no amount of money that can equal to your existence. There is no amount of money that can be paid to cover your presence. But value, in this case, has to do with how you feel about yourself, treat yourself and what thoughts you think towards yourself.

When you value yourself, others will follow suit in like manner. Many people stay in relationships that are unhealthy because they believe that their own worth is tied to another person. Believe me when I say that your worth is not engulfed within another person. If you are in this type of relationship, Get Out Now! And decide that you are worth it. You deserve to be in a healthy, loving relationship. Other people can help, teach, encourage and empower us but no one can place a measure of value upon you except you-alone. You must know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are worthy! Say it with me: “I am Worthy of Love”

Though the world can be an unloving place, we all, in spite of what we show forth to others, we all have the capacity to love. Love is universal. Any person can recognize love with their heart. It may take longer for some people to recognize love because hurt has blocked them but given the chance, they will. Some people need more love and therefore, more patience to deal with. When you meet someone who seems the most unloving – they are the ones who really need it. They need something to penetrate the wall of hurt. The only power that can penetrate is a power called love, often nothing else. So, I urge you to be an action figure, a shero or hero, called Love!

Get out of the Self-Made Box

Many of us have been in a self-made box for so long that we do not realize that we function and make decisions inside a box. A self-evaluation with a focus on where you may be limiting yourself through your beliefs, tradition or simply mimicking someone of great influence can bring you insight. You’ve got to get out of that box of comfort – so you can realize the sheer abundance that is already yours.

Thank you Dr. Stephen Covey!

One of my favorite quotes by Dr. Stephen Covey (1932-2012) is “I am personally convinced that one person can be a change catalyst, a “transformer” in any situation, any organization. Such an individual is yeast that can leaven an entire loaf. It requires vision, initiative, patience, respect, persistence, courage, and faith to be a transforming leader.” Since reading “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People“;  I developed a love for leadership and personal development and now leadership is one of the main topics which I train men and women who desire to be more effective, impactful leaders.  Dr. Covey has indeed left this world a “better place” as well as a lasting legacy of greatness. For years and years to come, many leaders and personal development champions will be reading his books and incorporating the wisdom-filled lessons into their work and their lives. He set out to leave this world a better place and I believe he has fulfilled his purpose. Thank you, Dr. Covey, for sharing your gifts with the world.

Own It. Decide it Do It. – Take Positive Action:

  1. Has Dr. Stephen Covey impacted your life in any way? What kind of legacy would you like to leave?
  2. Do you have goals and dreams that you desire to accomplish? What’s holding you back?
