Choosing Your Hard: A Journey of Self-Worth

Speak Plainly

Dec 12 2023 • 42 mins

Are you feeling adrift on life's tumultuous sea, constantly tossed about by the opinions of others? We've all been there. But what if we told you that you could reclaim your self-worth and emerge stronger from life's challenges? On this episode of Speak Plainly, we're getting real about self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect.

We'll unpack the five C's - competence, confidence, character, connection, and caring - that shape our self-worth, and delve into how these can be influenced, for better or worse, by others.

Then, brace yourselves as we bring you face-to-face with the idea of choosing your hard. We'll share how embracing tasks that align with our beliefs, even when they're tough and offer no guarantees, can elevate our self-worth. We'll also share personal experiences of learning to say no, standing up for ourselves even when it felt like the world was against us, and how that's made all the difference. Lastly, we reflect on personal events and relationships that have shaped our self-worth and the lessons learned. So, join us on this enlightening journey as we navigate our path to cultivating self-worth. No matter where you're at, you're not alone, and it's never too late to start. So, are you ready?
