How much I’m worth has changed over the years. Not because I’ve made or lost money, or anything else similar, but because my perspective on my value has changed. You see we often fall pray to the benchmarks that society sets for us. Sure, we need to reach certain benchmarks in life to survive, i.e. paying our bills, but we shouldn’t let those benchmarks define our value.

I want you to take a good hard look at yourself and decide if your personal value is based on social benchmarking or those things that are actually valuable to you.
