Because whether you are (or are not) is affecting your business.
I know you are thinking: where does she come up with these questions? ;D
So let me just unpack this a little!
When I talk about embodying your worth, I am talking about self-worth. The dictionary describes self-worth as “the sense of one's own value or worth as a person; self-esteem; self-respect.”
So how do you value yourself? What is the sense of your own value or worth? How has your self-respect been lately?
When we talk about embodying something, we are talking about being it, breathing it, living it. It is the practice of making something real to our senses.
It is the difference between thinking about an apple and tasting an apple; talking about what it is like to experience pleasure and experiencing pleasure.
One is a mind interpretation and one is an experience of sensation.
I know, you are probably thinking, what does all of this have to do with my business. So let me get to that.
Business is simply a value exchange. We offer something in exchange for money. There is a value on one side and a value on the other.
Whether that exchange is fair or aligned, or worth what we are giving...whether it feeds us or depletes us, depends on how we are embodying our worth.
A few examples:
When we are NOT embodying our worth, we over-deliver, charge less than we deserve, let our boundaries slip, struggle with sales, and experience self-doubt more than clarity.
When we are embodying our worth, we know what we have to offer and the gift we are to the world. We stop trying to be all things to all people. We operate our business in a way that works best for our genius, flow, and natural rhythm. And so much more!
In order to embody our worth, we have to actually FEEL IT!
It is not enough to say it to ourselves, to pump ourselves up, or to get outside validation to prove our worth. We have to actually experience the sensation of worth.
This is a practice and a process! It is one of the reasons I created the Worthy Women Collective. To give space for women to embody their worth.
So how do we embody our worth? What exactly is the practice? It starts with letting ourselves really feel it.
You see you are worthy just by breathing. There is nothing more you need to be or do to be worthy.
Your existence is all that worthiness requires.
Sit with that. Let that sensation move in you. I know it sounds simple, but as the sensation washes over you, it changes your life AND your business.
Embodying worth is a vibration that affects every cell in your body and it ripples out into your decision-making, your actions, and your results.
Some people say like attracts like. Worthiness and the vibration of value attract being valued.
If you sat in the sensation of worthiness every day, magic would happen in your business. Your relationships would transform. You would find more ease and more satisfaction. You would attract more clients (that value you) and more money.
Just give it a try and let me know what you discover. <3
PS. There are a lot of women in business out there who need to be reminded how worthy they are. Forward this Worthy Love Note to them & they can sign up here.
