Here are our favorite know your worth quotes and how to embrace yours
Our first three come from an American spiritual teacher, an American political figure and an American essayist
“Your problem is you are too busy holding onto your unworthiness.” -Ram Dass
“Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
The odds of you being created were tiny; in fact, it was something like one in 400 trillion. So your mere existence is against all odds.
You may never feel good enough, smart enough, or prepared for life’s challenges. One secret of the most successful people is that they’ve felt that same way.
The sooner you can reject those feelings of unworthiness, the sooner you’ll begin getting what you want.
Our next three come from a Chinese philosopher, and two American writers
“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.” – Lao Tzu

“If you want to improve your self-worth, stop giving other people the calculator.” -Tim Fargo

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. -Buddha
