Know your worth

I cannot emphasize this enough. The key to success, more often than not, lies on knowing your worth and standing by it, come what may. 

As they say, “If you don’t stand for anything, you will fall for anything.” In the same way, if you don’t esteem yourself highly, no one else will do it for you and in the end, you will settle for less. 

This lesson is most important in the corporate environment and in relationships. If you have developed your skill set, then you should know the kind of offers you should turn down. It is not a matter of pride. Despite the fact that we should all start from somewhere, the point of developing yourself is so that you don’t have to start from a certain level.

In the same vein, if you don’t know your worth, you will roll with all kinds of people who will only sap your life and value out of you. 

Knowing your worth begins with discovering yourself. You need to know the value you carry within you, where you are lacking and what you need to develop. In that way, you will never sell yourself short.

I am writing this passionately because I know what it is like to be taken for granted. Recently, I was offered a job. Everything seemed perfect until I was asked to resume. Lo and behold the package and workload I had been initially offered was no longer the same thing I was presented with. I knew I was would be underpaid so I walked away. 

I may not have been able to do that before but because I know my worth, I knew those guys were trying to take advantage of me. A friend of mine to whom I related the story said their offer was a form of disrespect. 

You may call this mindset pride. I call it self-awareness.
