To get, you must first give. People will not relinquish value unless you give them something of equal value.
To be valuable you must give something that is beneficial.
You don’t know how much value you can give, until you actually try to do it.
Confident people are value givers. What can be a more confident act, then giving away something you have?
Confidence may be internally sourced, but until it’s acted upon, it’s not confidence.
It doesn’t matter how good you are at something. Until you do it, until it affects others, you’re useless. You’re of no value. There is potential energy and kinetic energy. Value does not have this dichotomy. There is no potential value. Only (kinetic) value. You’re of no value until you prove otherwise.
It’s stupid to spend a lot of time alone. If you need to recharge then do it. But don’t be a hermit. Hermits are useless. Always be in contact with someone. You need that, more than you know.
If you want to build your self-worth, self-esteem, self-whatever, do things you know to be beneficial to you. Make it a habit.
