I remember the first time I heard the phrase "know your worth". It was decades ago while I was watching the movie Joy Luck Club with my Mom. In the film a mother is referring to her daughter's choices and what she has allowed in her life - especially her marriage.
Fast forward to a family and business of my own and I get this... What does it mean to know your self-worth? I see three keys to determining your self-worth: legacy, freedom, and boundaries.
Legacy is the impact you have after you're gone. It's not inheritance, it's spiritual. What will you be known for after you're gone? Why do you do what you do? What is your mission? Are you constantly the cranky mommy or do you intentionally build time for a break?
You'll find freedom in living your legacy now. When you live life on purpose, you gain clarity on what doesn't serve you or your legacy. You also gain clarity on how you can serve others. It means you can start saying "no" and be okay with it. It means you can start building boundaries around what you will allow and not allow in your life.
When you start creating boundaries around how you will show up in your personal life and business life, and who you're willing to accommodate, all of the sudden you find more time. Time is your most precious resource because once it's gone, that's it. Don't waste it.
Knowing your self-worth means getting clear on your legacy. Knowing your legacy helps you create freedom and build boundaries so you can live a life of purpose on purpose.
