The true measure of self-worth is in what we’ve given ourselves permission to choose. — Pg 156 “Being The Solution”

Self confidence comes from being able to do anything well, but it’s your self worth that gets you well paid for doing it.
What would your life be like and who would you BE BEING if you raised the bar on your self worth a notch or two?
The ego is not who we are, it is merely an idea about who we are, an idea come to life, to give us the experience of life from that point of view. — Pg 28, “So, Why Aren’t You Rich?”
The people and circumstances in our lives, are merely a reflection of who we are BEING. When we dismiss fear and change our minds about who we will BE, our whole world and everyone in it must change to correspond.
To have what you want from life, you must
- Know what you want
- Believe that you can have it
- And then choose to be the one who will have it
But giving yourself permission to have it is often easier said than done. The actual choosing is a self-worth decision.
Your ability to choose an out of the box goal is not a measure of what the Universe can deliver; it’s a measure of what your self-worth will allow you to accept. For the Universe, there is no limit to the supply. The limit in place is the one you have on what you can allow yourself to accept.
The real truth of life is that any and all good that comes to you in any of its forms is through the channel of your own consciousness. The size of that channel (your self-worth) will decide what you may or may not have in your life. To open that channel wider and receive more, we must grow in consciousness, becoming the source of that which we seek.
You Don’t know Who You Are
If you don’t know what you want in life, you don’t know who you are, and you’ve missed the point of the Game of Life. And even if you know what you want and can’t choose it, you still don’t know who you are. You can only know who you are when you give yourself the power and the right to choose that new and better life for yourself.
The rule of life that we each live by, the rule that governs our lives is this: we become what we think about. With every thought, you are choosing an attitude, an opinion or a point of view. Those points of view are who you are.
Whether you realize it or not, every time you react in any way, to the circumstances in your life, you are choosing who you will be under those and similar circumstances. By deciding how you will feel and think about something, you are choosing who you will be relative to that subject.
Your reality is not in what’s happening in your life; it is in how you deal with what’s happening.
Life keeps confronting you with circumstances designed to move you to the point of choosing, so that in choosing, you will come to know who you are. You see, that’s the only way you will discover who you are, by rediscovering your power of choice, by choosing.
CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? - The question I hear over and over again is, “How do I choose?” The problem with that question is, there’s no “HOW” to it, you just choose.
To see why I say that, imagine yourself at the ice cream counter with 31 flavors from which to choose. Now, ask yourself, “How do I choose?” Silly question, isn’t it?
In fact, life is set up so that you can’t hide from choosing. Given whatever circumstance, you are faced with a choice, and you MUST make it. When you cop out, when you try to hide from choosing, you are still choosing; you’re choosing not to choose.
The Game of Life is about CHOICE, nothing more, nothing less. You choose who to BE. I MEAN REALLY CHOOSE, and once you do, everything that belongs to you will come to you automatically.
Notice that you’ve already chosen and you already have everything that belongs to you as a result of that choice. So, it works. Doesn’t it?
