Does any of your self-worth come from your net worth? That’s the topic we’re discussing today: measuring your worth. We have both let money affect our self-worth, in the past, but agree that’s a flaw we are constantly working on.
Trust us when we say that it’s a lot easier said than done! One thing we’ve heard in the past: how you measure your self-worth will directly affect how you act in life.
We share some examples of what this looks like, at the end of the episode. And we close by giving a few ideas for how to measure your worth instead, including knowing how you treat people and who you are at your core.
