Sometimes we are afraid to ask for what we truly want; what we feel we deserve...what we are worth. Why?

The list goes on...
• We don't want to be rejected.
• We don't want to miss out on an opportunity.
• We don't want to be greedy or viewed as being greedy.
• We are afraid we won't get what we ask for.
• We believe we should take what we can get.
• We believe we only get one chance.
• We enjoy & love our talents; which doesn't seem to warrant a monetary return.
• We don't think ourselves worthy.

At the root of most of these notions, I think, lies worthiness.

Do you feel worthy of receiving something good? Do you feel worthy of receiving something better?? Do you feel worthy of receiving an abundance of the very best???

This is not the easiest concept to tackle, especially if you care what other people think of you. 

For the longest time, I would limit myself because I feared others would think that I thought I was better than. 
Sounds silly; and a bit confusing, no?
People thinking, that you think, you are better than them; or that you look down your nose, because you aspire more for your life...or maybe, you just aspire something different for your life.
If you put a lot of weight into what other people think of you, stop it.
Firstly, you never know exactly what their thinking.
Secondly, their thoughts about you, don't make you who you are; so, stop shrinking away from who you want to be & outwardly downplaying yourself, when you know on the inside that you want something good, something better; something more.
After all, it is Your Life; isn't it? 

It took me awhile to realize that people who say, "Oh, you think you're better than me!", truly believe that. THEY believe that you really are better than them, and then want to project that notion on you, to make themselves feel better.

You are worthy of the life you want to live! 
It doesn't make you a bad person. It doesn't make you greedy. It doesn't make you a "snob". It's just what you want.

Everybody wants something, right?

Whatever your situation: looking for a new job, looking for a person to share life with, looking to start your own business, looking to move into a nice neighborhood, have to know that You Are Worthy of Having the Very Best.
You don't have to settle & accept less than. 

Ask for what you're worth, because you are worthy of it.
If you get rejected...don't get what you want...miss the opportunity, maybe it wasn't your opportunity to get, this time around. Maybe there is something better, something great, an abundance carrying what you asked for & more; just waiting for you around the bend.
You'll never discover it, until you ask.

Thank you so much for this post. I am almost always worried about what people think of me. It's a pretty debilitating way to live life, but I've been trying to get past it. I just have to keep the mindset that I am worthy of everything that I accomplish and gain in life! :-)
