We all know people who downplay their achievements. They don’t want to appear selfish or egotistical. The left-overs are okay with them – let the other people have the good stuff. This is a nice attitude to have occasionally, but if you are always putting yourself down and counting yourself out, there may be a problem. If anyone of you lives with a martyr, you know how difficult that can be.
Of course we also know people who are full of themselves. They think that whatever they do or say deserves other people’s attention. They’re not easy to live with either.
So how do we strike that nice healthy balance between thinking too much or too little of ourselves? How do we balance self esteem vs ego? It may help to start with who we really are.
We are divine beings have a human experience. So is everyone else we share this planet with, but we’re all in different stages of learning, sort of like being in different grades in school. A 10th grader is not superior to a 3rd grader – just older with more experience. It’s really important to know that we are wonderful and marvelous, as long as we remember that everybody else is too. Our actions do not always reflect ‘who we are’, but ‘who we are’ remains the same. It’s essential to realize that we are all amazing souls here for individual lessons, and when the lessons are over we will go back to being our true selves – amazing souls.
If we don’t believe that we are wonderful and doing a good job here, we won’t feel deserving of all the blessings that the Universe has in store for us. If we don’t feel deserving, we can’t receive. That’s just the Law of Attraction working absolutely the way it should.
In the eyes of God we are all equal, because God sees our souls. In the eyes of God we are all marvelous because that is how He made us. Remember, no one is more important that you are. No one is more deserving of happiness, joy, health, abundance, peace and prosperity. Please keep that in mind as you go through your day.
