It’s Time To Make Yourself As Important As Others!
One of the best gifts you can give to yourself, and others is the gift of making yourself as important as others. Not more important or less important but as important. You are worthy and you deserve to treat yourself as such!
Whether you are at work, with loved ones, or in a social setting, just know that by making yourself as important as others you are not only increasing your self-worth, self-esteem, and confidence, you are also inviting others to do the same.
Stop and ask yourself, am I making myself as important as others? Am I respecting my own needs, wants and desires? Or am I putting my work, partner, clients, family, etc. before myself?
I’m sure you can think of times when you are really good at owning your power and making yourself as important and times that you aren’t so good at it. Overall would you say that you tend to sway more to the former or the latter?
If you’re honest and discover that you struggle with making yourself as important just know that you are not alone.
This is definitely something that I notice often when working with my one-on-one clients and in my workshops. Often these very ambitious and successful people are great at carving out time to serve others, help family and friends or clients, but when it comes down to putting in that same energy into themselves they have a lot of resistance.
Just know that it is not selfish to make yourself as important as others. In fact, it is the most loving thing you can do. It’s like the ol’ airplane oxygen rule. Be sure to put your own mask on first!
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself…
- In what area of my life (or in what situations) am I really good at making me as important as others?
- In what area(s) in my life am I not so good at making myself as important as others?
- What is getting in the way of me doing this?
- What is one small action I can take to start making myself as important? How can I make this a reoccurring action?
