Worth

C281734 mThe Grasshopper had me scrambling for a pen when he woke me up in the middle of the night with this: “Question your effort, never your worth.”

Like all his musings from out of the blue, I had to let the message settle before I could attempt any interpretation.

It felt a little like “Actions speak louder than words” but it had another dimension – Worth.

What are you worth? Dollars and financial assets aside, how do you determine your worth?

Is worth what you contribute to something – a relationship, a family, a cause, a partnership, a friendship? Or is it just always present whether you contribute something or not?

I believe it’s the latter. Worth is not dependent on any contribution; it’s just always present waiting to be discovered and used.

When you discover your worth, you will find that you are worth no more or less than anyone else. Worth is distributed equally among us. The question then becomes not, “Am I worthy?” but rather, “How do I put my worth to work?”

That’s where effort comes in. How you are using your worth is something that can be questioned, never the intrinsic quality itself.

You can more easily cast off any feelings of unworthiness once you realize you have it in equal measure to anyone you deem worthy. Then the measuring stick can be more effectively used to calculate something you can measure – Effort.

What effort are you putting behind your worth? Just like you’re entitled to breathe air like everyone else, you are entitled to your worth. You are not entitled to your effort; you have to work for it.

Too often we use the excuse of not being worthy to not pursue something. That illusion begins to disappear when we mount an effort.

You are worthy of anything you desire. The only question left is: Are you willing to make the effort? Because without effort, you’ll feel worthless.

All the best,

John
