Don’t be like Wayne and Garth from the 1992 movie “Wayne’s World” in front of Alice Cooper saying: “we’re not worthy!” O.K., maybe you’d feel differently around someone like rocker Alice Cooper or even the Ultimate Warrior himself! Let’s be more like the L’Oréal hair color commercial that states:
“Because we’re worth it!” Yes, I know that’s for women but you men are worth it too. Worthy of happiness, worthy of greatness, worthy of living the best life you can. Did I feel worthy of Warrior’s guidance at first? Nope, but now I know better.
I remember to say I AM worthy each day during meditation. Sometimes I forget admittedly but most days I remember. This can be for anything you’d like to manifest. Maybe it’s simple, complicated, physical, spiritual, or any area of your life. Personal relationships, professional work, and anything in between matters too. For me it became inspiration to teach, mother, write, motivate, and learn. What does worthiness look like to you? Fill in this sentence: “I am worthy of … because….” Most people will reflect on their decisions and contemplate actions with worthiness.
For Warrior, everything he ever did was completely worth it to him, even the ugly battles. Perhaps in his mind, some situations could’ve been handled differently but worthiness- absolutely. It’s not selfish to attain for a feeling of worthiness but just be sure the ego doesn’t take over. We need to stay humble and be grateful for all of it. Each and every little moment. We are entitled to know our worth but not at the expense of diminishing others.
It all comes back to belief and Warrior had plenty of that. He believed he was worthy of great things and worked hard to know his worth. I hope whatever choices you make, your worthiness comes thru also. Don’t throw it away because you may feel it’s not for your life. Others can achieve thru worthiness so why not you? Not one person, not one can’t know their worth by choosing what they love. Make those decisions but then ask yourself if they were worth it. It’s kinda like regrets but with deeper meaning.
To be worthy means deserving respect and bring good enough. It’s attention in the right way. We ALL deserve those qualities, don’t we? Sometimes we are quick to tell someone else those comments but are slow delivering them to ourselves. Let’s not get beat up all the time because we think it’s ego based. It is not, truly it is not warriors.
Others may think differently or that you are elevating yourself to a new status but that’s where your control needs to come in. Never think you are better but always remember the worthiness is part of us all. The only one that can believe in your worth is YOU. People can tell you this but if you don’t believe, you’ll never get to that point of knowing your worth inside and out.
Think about how far you’ve come in life already. Make a list of times you felt worthy of something and when you didn’t. I hope your pros outnumber your cons but if they don’t, fix it! The only way others succeed is thru believing in the worthiness that they can. Plain and simple. There are many aspects that make us different but so many are the same. We all essentially want the same things deep down but how we get there is not always the aligned path or an easy one.
Know your worth warriors but if you don’t, examine that inner part of yourself and listen to it. Give yourself the gift of self-confidence and drill it in your brain everyday. Say: “I AM worth it!” as much and as many times as you need to. I will also practice this and sometimes need that boost just like you. We’re not Wayne and Garth but humbleness does matter. Just know how much you give comes back. Look to whoever or whatever you can as examples of worthiness. It is a difficult ultimate challenge but one that needs our attention.
~ Know your worth because you do truly deserve it. We all do. 💜
