What Matters Most?

What matters most in your life? Who are the people closest to you? What would you want people to know about you?

These are good questions to learn more about who you are and what you find important in life. Answer these questions then look at what it reveals about you.

Some focus on family and friends. They are social and vocal. they want to be part of every celebration and every gathering. They love the spotlight and want more of e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!

Others focus more on money and success. They want more income, more investments and more recognition in the business world. These people may find it more difficult to maintain their feelings of self-worth if they are laid off, demoted or caught up in investment losses. Their feelings of confidence lie outside of themselves and their pride is dependent upon income not self-love.

Then there are people who take what they want from everyone else. They have no boundaries or personal expectations. Everything they own they took from others. These people have no true self-esteem since they only have success because they stole it from someone who is truly successful. These individuals have fragile egos and strike out rather than look inward for reasons to change.

Then there are those who have very little “self.” They serve others and gain their self-importance by how much everyone else needs them. They give too much away and then feel sorrow because they have nothing. This would be a true martyr. You can see them do this to themselves but they have no power to do any different.

What is important to learn from this is that you must have self-love and introspection. Looking outside of yourself for your feelings of self-worth will not be enough to keep you happy or feeling fulfilled.

A healthy sense of self and support of others will be far more effective to feel independent and worthy of love and prosperity. Too much of one thing is not good for your soul growth. Balance is suggested for all of us.

Focus first upon yourself. You are not able to help others if you are unhealthy or out of balance.

Then focus upon God and any Higher Power. Having faith will help you deal with success and loss.

Then focus upon family and friends. We need love and support from a few wonderful people.

Balance your focus between income, relationships and serving others. Look outward AND inward for your sources of self-worth. Too much in one direction or the other will cause you to be unhealthy and out of balance.

You may do so much more yourself and others if you are grounded and well.

Look to God for your worth. We are all nurtured and loved by our Savior. From a solid stance we may give so much more of our strength to the world.

This is about soul growth not self-absorption. Think about the agreement you made with God about what you will accomplish in this earth-life. Being selfish was NOT on that list!

Find comfort in God and worth in your soul,
