Scarcity of self value cannot be remedied by money, recognition, affection, attention or influence. – Gary Zukav
Human beings bring into every space they occupy their inside life to bear which we experience on the outside as their behaviour.
So as individuals, we have to be conscious of the “quality of our inside life”. We need to heal where we have been hurt. We need to give ourselves what we wished we had gotten from our parents – dead or alive. We need to value ourselves before expecting others to give us what we don’t even give ourselves.
A leader needs to be their own best leader before deserving the privilege of leading others. Positional leadership does not make you a leader in the eyes of others. It just gives you the authority to be seen in a particular way that you may or may not deserve and to illicit behaviour you would not without it.
Value yourself first. The rest of us will follow if you are worthy. No amount of external trappings will fulfill you, shield you from your internal deficiencies nor make you feel valuable. There is no short cut to doing the internal and necessary work on yourself.
Positive energy to you to have the courage to do what you need to do to live your desired life.
