How to Find Your Self-Worth Despite the Challenging Circumstances of Life

Does life always seem to be a struggle for you?

Do you often feel overwhelmed and frustrated most of the time?

Do you find yourself wishing you could experience something better?

Fortunately, you can in fact enjoy the amazing life you want and deserve.

Success is available to you despite any challenging circumstances in your life. It’s important to remember, also, that your self-worth is not defined by your circumstances. Yes, you heard that right! Your circumstances in no way define who you are.

What holds you back?

Take some time today to question the beliefs you’re holding onto that limit your potential.

Ask yourself where these beliefs came from?

Are they even yours?

If you are looking at challenging circumstances as a wall that’s impossible to climb, you must get a fresh perspective.

Within you is everything you need to thrive and excel. The more you question the validity of your limiting beliefs, the more success you’ll experience in your life.

Think of a circumstance in your life that you believe is preventing you from something you want. Write it down, then get ready to challenge that limiting belief. If you do, you’ll begin to move toward the success you deserve.

Use these strategies to maintain a positive self-worth, regardless of your circumstances:

  • Find the cause. What is the cause of the circumstance in your life? Sometimes, limiting beliefs can serve as warning signs that help you avoid danger. What can you learn from this so you avoid triggering similar situations in the future?
  • If the cause of your situation is unclear, ask friends and family for their input. Others see your life from a different perspective, and their input can sometimes be valuable in determining the root of your difficulty. Be sure to ask those that are supportive of your healing.
  • Get past the blame game. You can often be your own worst critic. Fortunately, negative self-talk often has very little basis in reality. Choose to replace the doubts of your inner critic with more productive and positive thinking. This takes time to flip the script in your mind especially if you’ve been running it for a long time. Give yourself grace and mercy.

Once a negative thought has taught you its intended lesson, it has served its purpose. If you choose to hold onto those negative thoughts, they will begin to form a negative self-image in your mind. This unbalanced view of your talents and strengths holds you back.

  • Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts about your circumstances, learn the lesson and resolve to move on. Find out what you can do differently to avoid a repeat of your present situation. Then, when negative thoughts enter your mind, choose to replace your self-talk with productive positive thoughts instead.
  • Cut yourself some slack. Recognize that you’re human. Everyone makes mistakes, but your attitude determines your altitude in life. You are valuable regardless of your present predicament. You are worthwhile even when you slip up or falter. Your circumstances simply provide feedback and an opportunity to learn and grow.
  • Make the most of it. When you recognize that you’re valuable despite your circumstances, you’ll begin to make the most of every opportunity. The stumbling blocks you face can and will become stepping stones to the success you deserve, simply by changing what you focus on.

  • Instead of feeling helpless, ask yourself: “What’s great about this?” Every situation provides something of value if you look for it. You can find it!
  • Ask for help. Loved ones and friends often see strengths in you that go without notice. Ask them to share what they believe your strengths are. This is where your self-worth is found. Everyone has something of value to contribute. You are valuable!
  • Once you recognize your unique talents, gifts, and abilities, you’ll see life in a whole new way. You’ll seek opportunities to use your talents to bless others. You’ll gain the confidence that comes from conquering challenges that once made you cringe.

  • Instead of allowing your circumstances to dictate who you are, you’ll make the rules!
  • Live one day at a time. Despite your best efforts, some days simply provide one frustration after another. When this happens, you have a choice. You can let your circumstances defeat you, or you can choose a more positive perspective.

Resolve today to find your strengths, learn from your difficult circumstances, and experience the joy you were created to experience. Instead of tying your self-worth to your circumstances, choose to see things as they really are. You were created with unique talents and gifts. When you find those gifts within yourself and put them to use, you’ll know how valuable you truly are.
