How Much Are You Worth?

I was speaking to a friend the other day and she told me a story about a time when she was given $100,000. She told me that in just over a year she had whittled it down to $10,000. This is where it stayed for the next year, hovering a little over and a little under, but always around $10,000. She explained this by saying;

β€œI was just never comfortable with the $100,000 or anything over $10,000. I never felt I was worth anything more than $10,000 so I didn’t feel comfortable with it. It never really felt like my money until it was down to $10,000. I don’t even know what I spent it all on, as I was still working during this period, but little by little the money went.”

As she relayed this story to me I winced when she said how much she is comfortable with and how much she thinks she is worth. I understood what she was talking about but the part that made me cringe the most was that I knew straight away that I am only comfortable with a few hundred dollars.

And for some time now, no matter how much I am earning there are always equal the amount of debts to pay off, leaving my account teetering around a few hundred dollars. And now I know why.

I only feel as though I am worth a few hundred dollars….

  1. I am a bit speechless, but a really interesting article – thanks for sharing this story! It really makes me wonder how many people have this line of thinking. I think it is important to separate your net worth from your spiritual worth – even though its tough to have a fulfilling life if either is too low.

    Great job!
