The Building Self-Worth IQ Matrix explores how to build a higher level of self-worth and start believing in yourself again. Self-worth is, however, often confused with self-esteem. They are certainly related, however, there is a difference. Where self-esteem is derived from sources that are outside of ourselves, self-worth, on the other hand, comes from within, from a sense of personal power.
Self-worth is a measure of how you value yourself in spite of your results, in spite of what’s happening around you, and in spite of what others might think or say about you. Therefore, to have self-worth is to have personal power. And with a sense of personal power, anything becomes possible. Use this mind map and accompanying 18 page eBook to help you build your self-worth.
Here is a quick break down of each branch of the Building Self-Worth IQ Matrix:
- About Self-Esteem: The first branch of this map explores the true meaning of self-esteem. Self-esteem is, of course, influenced by self-worth, however, they are not one and the same. You will discover how self-esteem comes from external sources derived from our results and from what others think about us. Having healthy levels of self-esteem is, of course, important. However, to develop lasting self-confidence it’s critical that we develop our self-worth.
- About Self-Worth: The second branch of this map explores the meaning of self-worth. Self-worth comes from within ourselves. It doesn’t rely on our results or on what people say or think about us. It instead relies upon an internal state of being that’s built upon self-understanding, self-acceptance, and self-love. Where self-esteem is a state of “doing”, self-worth is a state of “being”. When we go from “doing” to “being” that’s when we gain true personal power.
- Building Self-Worth: The final two branches of this map unlock a five-step process that will help you build your self-worth. This process will take you from self-understanding and self-analysis all the way through to self-love, trust, and taking personal responsibility for your life and circumstances. Building self-worth is no doubt a process that can take time. Any internal work we do naturally takes time before it changes us. However, by following these five steps you will progressively build your self-worth over the long-run.
Stick with these principles, memorize, and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively begin to build the self-worth you need to feel more confident irrespective of what life throws your way. Your self-esteem will, therefore, no longer be at the mercy of your results or of what others might say, think or do. The only thing that will matter is what you think about yourself. And that is where your personal power comes from.
