A Person’s Value DOES NOT Come From His/Her ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Women are actually experts at detecting this, especially in men. They can understand how a man feels about himself, regardless of how much he has or has not accomplished…
But think about it… who really wants a “success” person, who feels horrible about himself / herself? Such people are miserable and are miserable to be around.
Really, we need to stop thinking that we need to “earn” value. Value comes when a person has a deep sense of being “right” with himself / herself, with the universe (or God, if you will).
Value based on “success” is fickle. As long as a person feels “successful” he or she feels valuable. But my experience has taught me, that feeling “successful” all too quickly wears off. And soon, I’ve found myself having the need to again “prove” my ability to be “successful.”
Intrinsic value is Powerful. Circumstances cannot destroy it.
And Granted – People who feel intrinsically valuable often are successful… but even when they are no longer feeling the effects of a recent success, their feelings of value are unaltered.
In fact, even in the worst conditions, they STILL feel valuable.
Because their Strength come from WITHIN and not from Without.
