“My life is worth it”

I was with a friend of mine at a meeting and he was sharing what was on his heart, and at one point, he said, “my life is worth it”. For whatever reason, this made me think, “am I worth it?”. Of course, I can say yes, but as I share a lot, are my actions backing that thought?

How often have I started something and not seen it through? How many times was something on my heart that I wanted to do, and I put off the start date thinking I’m guaranteed anymore time on this planet than the present moment.

It makes me think, how many times in history have people said, “I’m going to start (fill in the blank) next week or next month and that day never arrived for them because they weren’t here to live it.

My ego will tell me, “nothing will happen to me“ to keep me safe and comfortable so that I don’t have to confront the reality of the situation which is, I am no different than anyone else. I breath air and I have blood pumping through my veins. At some point, I will take my last breath on this planet and I wonder if at that moment, the life that I left behind was one I’m proud of?

Was I an example for other people? Did I help anyone? Did I inspire anyone with the way I lived my life? Did I check off the things on my bucket list? If I was to attend my own funeral, could I nod my head and say, “that was a life well lived”.

Where am I going with this?

Great question!

I’m not alone in this way of thinking! I have people in my network that I converse with on a regular basis who are guilty of this. If I can, I want to pay it forward and help others to take the uncomfortable action they are resistant towards taking!

When you ask yourself, “Are you worth it?” what is your answer? This really is a great starting point to gauge how you’re living your life!

Is there something you have been wanting to do or try? People you have wanted to connect with and be in relationship with? Career opportunities you want to step into?

As cliche as it may sound, none of this will happen without action. Action can be uncomfortable, but is the discomfort you may experience worth the outcome you‘re seeking?

Whatever results you are seeking in your life, why are those important to you? For them to be on your mind, it’s no accident. You are worth the life you envision for yourself, your family, and your friends.

Whether its something you can tackle on your own or you’ll need the support of others, you can do it! Take that uncomfortable step, tell those close to you what you want, and chase your vision with all you got.

I’m sure you’ll want to look back one day and smile at what you’ve accomplished and the people you have helped.

It all starts with your next step!
