Are you struggling with low self-worth? Do you often base your value on external factors or others’ opinions? It’s time to take control of your situation and build a healthy sense of self-worth. With the insight and inspiring stories of Virginia Satir, Leonardo De Vinci, and Suzan Nguyen, you can see that success is possible regardless of our background or circumstances. So, are you ready to take life by the horns and pursue what you truly value and desire?

Building Self-Worth

Virginia Satir mentioned in her book entitled, The New People Making” your self-worth is based on meeting your needs in a position of self-honesty, strength, love, and reality.

Sometimes when your attitude is “I can only like myself when I do this well” or “I don’t like myself, so I will devalue and punish myself” is when your personal energy is diffused and fragmented.

Meaning, your self-belief, what you value, and your attitude in terms of what you want in life are scattered like the wind. This is where you will feel lost and not sure about tomorrow.

All maturity is best handled when you get control of yourself and your situation in a healthy and responsible way, instead of acting out when you are not getting your way.

We all, one way or another, come from imperfect families.

Some families are more troubled than others. The trouble in the family often leads to your body feeling physically tired, sick, or stiff. You sometimes must adapt to an inhumane or violent atmosphere, where you think it is the normal cycle of life.

Overcoming Repressed Emotions

Some doctors believe that cancer and/or other chronic health problems are due to repressed anger or emotions. These repressed emotions can damage your physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and financial well-being. These repressed emotions will lead to internal warfare where you blame yourself for everything that is going on and leaves you feeling poor.

Living the Life You Deserve REGARDLESS of Where You’ve Come From

People that come from troubled families often arrived above it all and still stand tall with those dignified feelings. People that succeed are able to label and recognized their pattern.

We all adapt to stressors by behaving in certain ways or patterns. Patterns can change once you are more aware of them.

“It is not shamed to be knocked down by other people. The important thing is to ask when you are being knocked down, why am I being knocked down? If a person can reflect in this way, then there is hope for this person.” Bruce Lee

Third-party stories such as Leonardo De Vinci help you understand that you go do anything once you make up your mind to succeed.

“Leonardo De Vinci was born to two unmarried parents and didn’t receive a great education as a kid, and yet he grew up to be one of the most influential artists, scientists, and inventors of all time.” Unknown

Suzan Nguyen is a 2x TEDx Speaker, published author of One Arm but Not Unarmed, happiness coach, and crowned Mrs. Universe Empire Queen in London. She was in a traumatic car accident and was in a near-death experience that led to the loss of her dominant arm. Her attitude about what she values in herself was focused on becoming better instead of being bitter. She decided to take her life back to re-learn and built another set of skills that reflect to what her life is now. Take life by the horns!

When Will You Be Ready?

Your self-worth should be based on meeting your needs with self-honesty, strength, love, and reality, and not on external factors or others’ opinions. It’s important to recognize the impact of a troubled family and repressed emotions on your well-being and take control of your situation in a healthy and responsible way. By identifying and changing your patterns of behavior, you can achieve a sense of inner peace and confidence to succeed in life.

As demonstrated by the stories of Leonardo De Vinci and Suzan Nguyen, success is possible regardless of your background or circumstances. It takes determination, a positive attitude, and the willingness to learn and adapt to achieve your goals.
