You will do great things

Self-worth cannot come from anywhere else but within. This post that can be read from first sentence to last, or from last sentence to first. The answer’s still the same.

It ends here.

You will do great things.

If you feel that you do not have self-worth to start with, it is the hardest thing in the world to build.

Self-worth cannot come from anywhere else but within.

It can be built up, but that worth is already there.

Self-worth might appear to come from without.

A word of affirmation from another.

A vote of confidence.

It can make all the difference.

You have the power to make this difference to someone else.

Other people may or may not have the power to make this difference to you.

But words of affirmation and votes of confidence do not create worth.

The words of others shine a light on something that already exists.

Something beautiful.

Something within.

The worth was already there within yourself.

Your self-worth is with you always, whether you recognise it or not.

You will do great things.

It starts here.

FOOTNOTES

The title of this post comes from a postcard received by a dumbfounded Gene Simmons, back when he was a young boy. Why dumbfounded? Because this postcard was written and sent to him by Marvel Comics supremo Stan Lee. Mr Lee was responding to a piece of fanmail that he received from the future Kiss supremo. Gene Simmons feels forever indebted to Stan Lee, for the latter taking the time to share such beautiful words when he really didn’t have to. You can hear the full lovely tale recounted in the video below. Excelsior!
