To the degree that you have confidence in what you are capable of doing you will be able to create income and prosperity.
If you don’t know what you’re doing or how to handle a situation, you will not be confident in that action. In my book, The Closer’s Survival Guide, I talk about how ability determines stability. Success in any endeavor builds confidence and your ability to produce determines your worth. Not just to your company, but to your family and yourself. Those who know how to handle a situation, wrap up a deal, who can sell their ideas, products and services will be worth more than those that choose to sit on the sidelines waiting for something to happen.
Hugging a tree or walking on fire will not make your self worth. Self worth must be earned by doing the right thing and taking the appropriate level of actions. Those that are confident and know how to produce regardless of the economy will never be without work or opportunity.
If you believe your self worth and value is low, there is something you do not know. This is why it is vital that you not only educate yourself but that you are able to apply your knowledge in the world to generate income. If you can’t predict what you can earn, know what you are worth, and then it is one of two things. Either you really don’t know what you want or you do know, but you don’t know how to get it.
Get clear on those two things and then get busy adding knowledge to desire like wood to a fire and sooner rather than later your dreams will take shape by becoming reality.
