Are you tired yet of outsourcing your worth

Are you tired yet of outsourcing your worth?

One of the biggest hurdle that we all have to face on our way to the next level of leadership, impact and impact is owning our worthiness.

Women are raised with messages that one day if they are good enough, they are going to be chosen.

That if they are pretty enough, well behaved enough, well accomplished in the art of managing a household; they will get chosen and wear the ultimate dress crown and ring that says you are worthy.

They are also taught that if they work hard, get the education, that great job and take care of everyone, financially, spiritually and emotionally. They will be a source of pride for their family, the best friend to have, a pillar in their community or church and crowned as worthy.

We are taught to outsource our sense of worth to others. We are warned that we should never say that we are worthy, we should wait for others to tell us that we are worthy.No one likes a woman who owns her worth. She is arrogant, she is too much and will alienate others

We are trained to fear rejection because if we are rejected then we would have failed the great assignment. The assignment to seek our worth from external sources.

What they didn’t tell us is that those who own the power to pronounce our worth also owns the power to take it away, to withhold it from us and worst of all to exploit us in exchange for it.

Usually with age and experience most women realise it was all a farce. That’s why some older women say it like it is and don’t care where it lands.

My hope for you is that you don’t wait until you are old, you don’t waste your healthy most productive years outsourcing your worth to people regardless of whether they are in your corner or out to exploit you .

I hope that you get to wake up each day and chose to own it and experience the freedom that comes from that.
