How is your self-confidence and happiness affected by your mistakes?
In this blog I am sharing a whole new and practical way of measuring our value and what to do to feel valuable.
it could be that:
- They make us feel good (about ourselves),
- They accept us as we are, even if they disapprove of our actions.
- They create some beautiful or useful
- They are a great friend,
- They do amazing work,
We value people who directly or indirectly bring love, peace and joy into the world.
My next question is, if you have these two identical cars, which one will you enjoy more? The one you drive in, or the one that is parked? We will enjoy the car more that we drive in, because every time we use it, we are reminded of its value. If we don't use the car and it is just collecting dust, then don't really appreciate it, and the chances are that we even forget that it has the ability to take us places. We stop realizing its value, even though its value hasn't changed.
The same is with our ability to bring love, joy and peace into the world. Every time we create something or we do something for others, we feel good., because we have reminded ourselves of our value. Many of us have confused this feeling good, with the belief that we have to do something to increase our value. This is a lie that leads to unhappiness, because it makes us forget that our value comes from our capacity to love. We don't have to do anything to earn and increase our value. We only need to remember that we are love, joy and peace.
How can we remember that we are love joy and peace?
- By being quiet and feeling the love, joy and peace inside of us.
- By being of service to others and ourselves (giving)
- By allowing and appreciating others being of service to us (receiving)
- By looking for and finding love, joy and peace in every situation in our lives
- By being kind to others, making them feel the love, joy and peace inside of them
Feeling amazing while being of service
Recognizing and remembering that our value comes from our capacity to express love, joy and peace, also helps to keep our ego in its place. Let me explain. Today I was working with my client. I was feeling great. I felt such love pouring from my heart and we were getting great results. I heard myself say to myself "I am doing a great job here" and I could feel my ego getting inflated. As I felt myself inflate, I noticed my heart started to close and I could feel less love pour from my heart. Then I said to myself "I feel so good, because with this work I am reminding myself that I am love, joy and peace and I have the capacity to bring love, joy and peace into this world" My ego immediately moved quietly into the back ground and my heart glowed even more! In that moment when I realized my true value.
We don't have to do anything to be of value, because our value comes from our true essence of being love, joy and peace and our capacity to bring it into the world. Actions make us feel good when our actions remind us of our true essence and our capacity to bring love, joy and peace into the world. What can you do on a daily basis to remind yourself of who and what you really are?
