Net Worth and Self Worth

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? ...Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” 

Marianne Williamson

Our net worth is going to be linked up with our feelings of self worth, not with our inherant worth. When we try and make a change in our behavior from a perspective of beating ourselves up and hating ourself, the change doesnt stick. But when we change our behavior out of love and compassion then it will stick. If you value yourself you ramp up the value that you can offer to the world. If you connect your financial awareness with self care and if you take care of your finances as an honor and privelage and look at it as a place of gratitude you will choose whether or not to buy something out of self love. Choosing to have a lack of financial awareness is only a way to keep yourself small out of fear. So if you want to heal your relationship with money, learn your own value.
