When you begin to value yourself and what you offer, people will see a change in you, so be ready for a reaction from them.
Those who seek to control you will feel threatened, and might attack your newfound self-esteem. People will also become attracted to your new energy, and will change the way they interact with you. New people will be drawn to you and exciting opportunities will appear.
To find direction based on your self worth, start by making two separate lists, one of your strengths and one of your interests, things that excite you. Make two lists of at least five simple words or phrases. Now mix your strengths and interests into different combinations, and choose the top 5 phrases or sentences that excite you the most.
