At a young age we learn about money. Maybe around when we were preteens, some even earlier. We were taught about coins and bills, and the difference between each one. We knew how much pennies, nickels, and dimes were worth compared to 1, 5, 20, and even 100 dollar bills. It didn’t take long to learn that those bills are worth more than those little coins.
As we grew older, we learned even more about the value of money (at least…maybe most did). Sure, money might have become more complicated when you factor in loans, homes, cars, and bills (you know, the ones that need to be paid to keep things running), but the value of bills (money bills) always remained at a greater value than that of coins.
If we know that bills have a greater value than coins, then why do we settle for just pennies, nickels, and dimes? Why do we settle for less? I want you to just take a second and evaluate where you are in life right now. Examine your relationships, friendships, job, income, and health. Are you getting the best out of life in all of those areas?
If you stopped and gave deep thought to one of those areas, or even another, and felt you were settling in one of those departments, then it prompts a follow-up question:
How much are you worth?
Are you worth just pennies, nickels, and dimes, or are you worth the big bills?
Don’t settle for less in any area of your life. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you are worthless. That you aren’t much of anything or that you won’t amount to anything. Make sure in all areas of your life, that you know your worth, that you know your value, and that you are treated as such.
Whoever, or whatever, doesn’t see the value in you and what you have to offer, you don’t need in your life.
Sure you may have to start somewhere, such as a job. You may have to start at the bottom. However make sure that you don’t get complacent in staying where you are if you aren’t valued. That goes for a relationship or friendship as well. Know your worth!
Know who you are, and don’t let anybody tell you differently. Don’t settle for the coins, go get the big bucks.
