1. Value Your Body
Do you treat your body like a luxury car that needs premium fuel? Do you get sufficient sleep? Do you pamper your body with healing gifts and natural herbs?
2. Question Your Choices
The next time you’re feeling indecisive, or are in danger of making a decision not in your best interests, ask yourself:
“If I loved myself, what would I do?”
Asking this question reveals the answer you know deep inside but are too conflicted to admit to yourself! Making decisions in full awareness by asking this question will help you value yourself a little more each time.
3. Direct Your Dialogue
Our minds focus on problems for our survival. But, the negative voice is just one of many “selves” representing aspects of our personality. You are a ‘team’ of conflicting ideas, opinions, wants, and desires – that team needs an assertive and positive inner voice to take charge.
By identifying and labeling the negative, critical, or less-helpful ‘team members’ (e.g. “the bossy guy” or “the dictator”) you can acknowledge when they take charge and put somebody else in the driver’s seat!
“I don’t follow leaders. The only leader I follow is my mind.” – Dr. Sebi.
4. Forgive it All
Forgiveness helps us to love ourselves, accept our imperfections, and accept responsibility for the things we’ve done, adding to our self-value.
Forgiveness does not condone another person’s negative actions towards us (their behavior) but it forgives the person (who makes mistakes), releasing us from the weight of holding a grudge. Remember, toxic thoughts are just as harmful as toxic foods.
5: Stop Comparing
“First of all, I’m your brother. No less, no more than you.” - Dr. Sebi.
Popular culture is centered on comparisons – making one life seem less valuable than somebody else’s. This is designed to keep us in a state of perpetual low self-value and we spend money on material goods to fill the perceived gap.
The only person you should be comparing yourself to is yourself! Decide how you would like to see yourself grow, then compare yourself to your own vision, and forgive any mistakes along the way.
6. Focus on Love
We often ignore the mundane blessings in life and all the beautiful things we experience. We don’t take the time to be truly grateful for all we have.
The simple act of saying ‘I love you to yourself in the mirror is like re-writing the price tag you put on yourself. Say it to believe it, even if it feels fake at first!
How will you enhance your self-value? How will you appreciate and celebrate the unique person you are? Exercising self-value will help you stand strong to overcome challenges, guiding your actions in alignment with the best possible version of yourself. Self-value enhances natural healing.
Self-value is driven by your actions, and your actions drive self-value, making the cycle easy to interrupt!
