Five Steps to Self-Worth

We all make mistakes. And we beat ourselves up a lot.

We are our own worst critics.

Being critical stops us from moving forward.

“When people believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.” ~Norman Vincent Peale

Take these five steps today to be-friend yourself and gain self-worth:

  1. Take out a blank page
  2. Write: “I am good at:” across the top of the page
  3. Create a squiggle border (optional, but fun)
  4. Write your list as quickly as you can. Fill the whole page and use more paper if you have to. Don’t edit as you are doing this step.
  5. Read the list to yourself. If you find negative statements along the lines of “I am good at messing things up… or I am good at being a no-good, such-and-such” cross those off the list. We are looking for positive, self-worth statements only; things that you would tell a best friend.


Is this a hard thing to do or is it easy for you?

Did anything surprise you as you were writing your list?

Does this feel like a dumb exercise?

Are you resisting doing this? Why?
