Knowing Your Worth and Capabilities

Have you ever had that experience where something shifted for you, but you can’t quite put your finger on what it is? Where you have more pep in your step, feel more capable, have more confidence and are mentally stronger? These past few weeks, I have been in this transition and feeling all the things and it finally hit me.

I know My Worth.

For so long, I have always felt I can do better, be better, needed someone to stand with me, that I was not capable of doing it on my own. Friday, it finally hit me. After geeking out all day on some marketing analytics (I am such a nerd), I started working on my CV, a Curriculum Vitae, an extended resume where you put all your academic and professional achievements. I started listing every single thing that I have done the last few years. Every project that my hands played a part in, and before I knew it, I was up to 14 pages and I still had more to go. At that moment I realized, wow you are pretty freaking awesome. I realized that everything I had done, I figured out on my own, from videography, to podcasts, to blogs, to presentations and social media, I learned along the way. Now, this is not a blog about me tooting my own horn but about recognizing your worth and capabilities.

I challenge each and every one of you, take out a piece of paper and write down everything you have accomplished. I think this is especially important for women. We do not give ourselves the credit we deserve for the things we have done. Write it out, take a step back and truly look at what you have done. Then pat yourself on the back and realize how amazing you are. Realize the capabilities you have and the hard work it took to get where you are today.

The shift in myself has been eye opening. No longer do I feel that I “need” someone else to make my life whole. No longer am I questioning what I bring to the table. No longer does doubt fill my thoughts. Are there insecurities still about doing the next big thing? Of course, but all I have to do is look back at what I have done and know that I can accomplish the next big thing. Is it scary? Does it make me uncomfortable? Definitely. But that is what it takes to get out of the comfort zone and accomplish the next big thing.

Take a moment to stop and pat yourselves on the back for all that you have overcome and achieved. You deserve it. Take the compliments people give you and fully believe what they are saying. Words have power, make sure the words you speak to yourself are full of positivity. You got this!

As always, share some love, we could all use a little more love.
