We all think we value ourselves.

And we do, to a point.

This is reflected in the material world around us.

What we have, what we receive, and what we earn each day.

While these markers are all external, they indicate something deeper.

Something that goes beyond the physical world and the trinkets we have accumulated.

For while having nice things does make us feel good, that is a backwards way of looking at them.

We may feel we've worked hard for what we have, and that is certainly true, yet many people have a lot more and worked a lot less.

So what is the difference between them and you?

Are they any smarter? Do they work any harder?

Or does it just appear that they have good luck.

Maybe you believe in Karma and you feel they must have done something in a prior life to deserve all they have.

You might be thinking that it is because they were born into a wealthy family.

Yet there are many stories of people born into great circumstances who lost it all.

The thing that separates all we want from all we have is really quite simple.

How much do you value yourself?

Do you truly feel, deep down inside, that you are worth the things you desire?

It is quite interesting how people who have a sense of entitlement often get what they want.

This is not to say that entitlement is the key.

Yet it is certainly a clue.

For what entitlement is really about is a sense of worth.

Are you worth a million dollar salary or business?

Our conscious minds will answer "of course!"

But that may not be how you really feel about yourself deep inside.

For our energy and how we show up in the world is what really shows the universe how we feel about ourselves.

Who we are speaks so loudly that the universe can't really hear the words we are saying.

Or the goals we write down. Or the vision boards we create.

To truly bring to us what we desire is not an outside job.

It is all an inside job.

And it goes deep.

Back to our childhood and any traumas we might have experienced as we grew.

Unraveling them and process the energy that we are holding on to around them is more important than anything else when it comes to bringing our dreams to us.

This path is not easy.

It is not for the faint of heart.

Yet the rewards are beyond our imagination, and well worth the price.

Being open and willing to face our fears is essential on this path.

And we grow and shift our energy around our own deserving, so many things in our lives will change.

Are you up to the challenge?

Is it worth it for you to face your demons to have your dreams?
