3.4 - Worthiness

3.4 - Worthiness

I once heard Tony Robbins say that our deepest human fear is that we're not enough and that if we're not enough we won't be loved. Brene Brown calls it the "hustle for worthiness". That is basically the crux of this lesson. In today's video, we're going to talk about worthiness. What it is, why it's so important for living happy, fulfilling lives, what gets in the way of us experiencing it, and some trick that you can use to help you find more worthiness in your own life.

“When we can let go of what other people think and own our story, we gain access to our worthiness—the feeling that we are enough just as we are and that we are worthy of love and belonging. When we spend a lifetime trying to distance ourselves from the parts of our lives that don’t fit with who we think we’re supposed to be, we stand outside of our story and hustle for our worthiness by constantly performing, perfecting, pleasing, and proving. Our sense of worthiness—that critically important piece that gives us access to love and belonging—lives inside of our story.”

About Ellyn

I've spent the the majority of my life doubting myself. Doubting whether I was pretty enough, smart enough, capable enough, smooth enough, etc. It was all about whether I was enough. I let people's external validation define me. Or rather, my perceptions of what people thought of me. Those perceptions held me back my entire life. In my career, relationships, perception of myself. Years later, I finally started focusing on what I could do. It took stacks of books and years of diligent work, but I finally feel like I'm moving toward the confident person I want to become!
