Good Morning Brilliant and Excellent People,
I look forward to sharing with you Brilliant and Excellent tips for attaining your goals and fulfilling your Purpose.
Some weeks ago, we discussed how you can place value on your skills and the ways to achieving it. Similar to same article, this week, we will examine what values we have placed on ourselves and how these values influence the quality of our lives.
Again, Value is defined as “the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something.” Value can also be referred to as worth, merit, importance, or quality of a thing or person. Value is also measureable, which means that if you can measure it, you appreciate it more.
Let’s start with an example that is easy to relate with, some years ago, I purchased a new car, because of the price I paid for the car, I placed so much value on it and I instructed my driver not to leave the car outside the garage or just anywhere for any reason. One day, he parked the car in the compound, without parking it in the appropriate place- that is the garage. He almost got fired that day for that mistake. This same car today, I can afford to park it just anywhere, as long as it’s safe though, and not necessarily in my garage.
The value I placed on the car at purchase cannot be compared to the value I have placed on it now. Why? A number of factors comes to mind, length of use, maintenance of the car, how much more cars I can now afford to buy, how many new model has been created and a host of reasons.
But what happens if the car is one in a million, it is continually a new model, every other car cannot beat the model, it is always the latest and no manufacturer has been able to do something to beat it. In this case, the car would never lose value, Right? And the owner of such car would never have to rethink the option of parking it in a garage and treating it like a queen.
The idea behind this analogy is powerful. Humans are ‘doing’ being, we are constantly doing something, which in many situation beats certain records earlier set. For example on 29 May 1953, Edmund Hillary was the first person to climb Mount Everest. At the time, it was probably the greatest achievement no one could surmount. But we see that in 2010, May 22, a 13 years old boy, Jordan Romero climbed the same mountain. He is recorded as the youngest person to ever climb Mount Everest.
Never think of yourself as being at the height of your career, as being there and need no improvement. The greatest way to stay relevant and be valued is to be committed to yourself. Being committed to yourself involves Investing in yourself in such a way that you are a ‘do-without’ wherever you find yourself. So many people do not value their personality. The first step is to love yourself, then you can invest in yourself.
We also need to engage in different activities that will keep increasing the value we place on ourselves. The kind of network we keep depends on the value we have placed on ourselves. The kind of our diet, appearance, and decision is as a result of the value we have placed on ourselves.
It is not too late to determine your worth and place a value on same.
