While estimating the amount of material you require to renovate your room , would you use just a random stick to measure ? Probably not.
You'd use a proper measuring tape that would accurately help you calculate the dimensions. Yet,
We all have some sort of measuring stick that we use to determine our value as a human being.
Our measuring stick has so much influence over how we feel about ourselves, but
Here are five common – yet potentially hazardous – ways people measure their self-worth:
1. Who You're Surrounded By
2. What You Do
3. How Much Money You Have
4. What You Achieve
5. How You Look
People depend on others to give them value .
Individuals feel worthy by surrounding themselves with important people.
It's like chasing a moving target. You can’t control other people and you can’t please everyone all the time. If you base your self-worth entirely upon how others perceive you, you’ll never be able to receive enough praise or positive reinforcement to feel good about yourself.
A career helps many people feel valued.
Why it's a big risk?
In the absence of a high profile career, you won’t be able to feel good about yourself if you’ve always measured your self-worth by what you do.
People measure their self-worth by the size of their bank accounts.
While money can definitely make your life a little comfortable but It doesn’t make sense to use money to determine your value as a human being.
The amount of money you earn or expensive possessions you own will never be enough to satisfy your need to feel worthy.
Sometimes people want to be known solely for their accomplishments.
Accomplishments can make you feel good, but basing your entire self-worth on your achievements is like building your house on an unsteady foundation.
You’ll need to experience repeated success in order to feel good about yourself – and that’s hard to maintain over the long-haul.
Role of media: Marketing strategies frequently target our insecurities about everything from ageing to weight gain.
Handsome face or a beautiful body won't last forever.
Wrinkles, a middle-age spread, gray hair, or a receding hairline can become catastrophic for anyone whose self-worth depends on their physical appearance.
Measure your self-worth by what your values are and who you are at your core. Doing so will help you focus on behaving according to your values, instead of chasing the things that will temporarily boost your self-esteem.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
