Self-worth vs self-esteem

Let’s say you try on some shirts at the mall, and you don’t like the way your arms look, or maybe you’re not pleased with your midsection. You might even realize you have low self-esteem in these areas – i.e., they don’t make you feel confident.

But SELF-WORTH lets you know that you are SO MUCH MORE than the state of your arms or midsection. AND … it can even help you recognize that you want something different for yourself.

It can be the spark you need to make certain changes – because you know you are WORTHY of feeling amazing.

It’s the same as when you set boundaries for how you allow people to treat you, or decide to go after a promotion, or any other goal you want because you are worth it!

Here’s one of our FAVORITE exercises for self-worth AND putting it to action:

This is actually really fun to do, and it works best if you follow every step and let your imagination fly.

  1. Imagine we are having a chat exactly 12 months from today. If you had your best 12 months EVER and stayed on track with your goals, what would you envision your health and fitness look like? What are the exact goals you want to reach? Take a minute to think about them and write them down.
  2. Now, imagine how living that way will FEEL to you … what your days will look like … what your energy levels look like? What kind of new confidence will you have? How will you feel when you go out with your friends? Or in your relationships? Write it all down!
  3. Next, once you have crystal clear clarity on what your 12-month goals are and how it feels, think about the DECISIONS you’re making 12 months from now. What choices are you making? How are you spending your time? How often are you working out? What are you doing for your nutrition? Write it down 🙂
  4. And lastly, WHY WAIT 12 months to start making those decisions! If you want to create a new reality, you have to make different decisions TODAY.

EMBODY the person you will become in 12 months, and live as that person TODAY! It’s time to LIVE YOUR LIFE AS IF you have already reached those goals!

That’s the fastest and surest way to achieve your goals … spending your days as the person who already has achieved what you want.
