people talk about low self-esteem, but what does it mean to the host of such a disease? there has to be a practical way to measure or determine whether or not you devalue yourself. in order to solve this mystery, you must reflect on your investments. if you are putting time and energy into a vice that is not benefitting your progress, you are settling for less than you deserve and betraying your own worth for some quick fix. are you lowering your standards for the sake of filling a hole?

today, you will learn how to respect yourself, or at least realize how exactly you have disrespected yourself in the recent past. know that you deserve real love, and even if the love is tough, recognize and embrace it for what it is. those who lack discipline will attract disciplinarians, simple as that. if you don’t like other people telling you what to do, do it yourself so nobody has to do it for you. set your own standard and stick with it. your standard doesn’t have to be “high”, but why shouldn’t it reflect the priceless quality that is inherent in your genetic makeup, and why shouldn’t you honor it consistently? today you will remember what you do it or, because if you don’t do it or something, you’ll do it for anything.

it is easy this week for us to identify exactly where we are losing life force energy by giving away our power. there are many ways we keep ourselves powerless without even realizing it. in order to bring these unconscious tendencies into the realm of awareness, we must honestly assess the interactions and activities that leave us feeling drained.

the crash of disappointment that is experienced after the false fulfillment of temporary satisfaction is an indication that we are wasting our energy on instant gratification and superficially quick results rather than exercising the full potential and focused patience of true power. is it easy to believe that we become more powerful by controlling external circumstances, specifically the people in our environments, but that is untrue. by focusing on manipulation of the “other” to get what we want instead of trusting our ability to successfully navigate any possible scenario, we actually forfeit all self-control, rendering us powerless. when things don’t go our way, many of us hold grudges that affect us adversely while the objects of our contempt are living their lives, unbothered and empowered by our resentment. obsession, addiction, attachment, the list goes on, and these are all ways we unknowingly relinquish our personal power. as the self-sabotage becomes clearer, the next logical step is to change our ways.
