Having a deep, secure and innate relationship with our self-worth can greatly affect how much ease and alignment we experience on the way to manifesting and creating our goals and visions.
Being able to claim and own our worth helps us receive guidance and (of course) take action on what we truly require to do in order to reach our goals, whether that’s:
- Launching a passive income product or offering
- Raising our rates to reflect where we are right now
- Creating and sharing our authentic content
- Being visible and seen by others
- Saying ‘yes’ to exciting opportunities
- And more…
On the other hand, not having a solid foundation when it comes to self-worth could see us:
- Spending too much time researching (but never taking outward action that puts us out there, in the game)
- Get stuck trying to make our work ‘perfect’ before we feel confident launching it
- Analysis paralysis in comparing our work with others
- Self-sabotaging our progress (one step forward, two steps back – or creating more ‘challenges’ in other areas of our life)
- Go into hiding and paralysis when we don’t get the feedback we desire – or perceive negative judgement from others
- Feel burnt out, overworked, and resentful in our work
- A lack of growth, excitement, and enthusiasm towards our work as we don’t allow ourselves to take the next step in our personal or business evolution
Here are 5 ways to start accessing a deeper level of self-worth in your business:
1 // Detach your self-worth from the performance, results, feedback (or lack thereof) of your work/actions
As a heart-centered, creative entrepreneur who’s committed to creating and living our most authentic work – it can hurt when we don’t get the feedback we expect on our latest creations/offerings/actions.
Being able to really ‘get it’ that the results and feedback you receive aren’t a reflection of how worthy you are – or how good your work is – allows you to get back out there and try again (vs. hiding in shame that ‘it didn’t work’)!
2 // Re-define your measure of success and worth.
Instead of basing it on external measures, measure your success on:
Whether you show up 100% in your business today…
Whether you were accountable to yourself (and did what you said you would do)…
Whether you dared greatly and boldly today (showing up even though it risked failing)…
Let these be the measure of your success.
3 // On that note, detach your self-worth from your pricing system
One thing that can get us stuck is pricing – I’ve definitely been there with this, and over the last 5 years of coaching entrepreneurs – I’ve seen clients struggle with this piece more times than I can count!
Your pricing is not your worth – charging X amount doesn’t mean you are less worthy than someone who charges more than you do or vice versa.
So, if you feel like you’ve attached your self-worth to how much your charge for your packages – stop.
You are worthy to begin with – no matter what your pricing dictates.
From this space of worthiness (and ease and fun and joy), is where you set your most aligned pricing.
4 // Focus on your journey, and what is right for you
Take comparison out of the equation.
If this means stopping yourself from obsessing over someone else’s packages/pricing/website/social media – do it.
If this means unsubscribing (or forwarding the email straight to ‘Archives) for the time being – do it.
No longer being in comparison mode means not feeling inadequate (or judging yourself as lazy!) when you see someone else doing something – that you aren’t. It means not feeling stressed when nobody else is doing what you’re doing, too.
Out of comparison mode, we can start discerning what is right for us, individually.
Which takes me to…
5 // Be 100% in your own energy
Quite often we scatter our energy by comparing our journey with someone else’s (see point above), or where we were in the past/where we feel we should be.
Neither of these are anchored in the present moment, which is where we are creating our goals from. Bringing your energy back to yourself means being 100% on your own path, in your own energy/power, in the Now.
Meditate, journal, invest in coaching, go out in nature – support yourself in re-aligning back to embodying 100% of your own energy in your business, and life.
