Over the past couple of years, the single most important thing I’ve learned is this:
No matter how hard you work or how many goals you set, you only ever get what you feel you are worthy of. Not a penny more.
Sadly, many people simply don’t feel worthy of the things they desire. Not in the deepest, darkest inner workings of their soul, they don’t.
After decades of studying personal development and neuroscience, of practicing visualization, goal setting and affirmations, I came to a single conclusion about the things I was still working hard for. There was only one thing standing in the way: what I felt worthy of having, achieving, being and doing.
I realized that like most people, when things came too easily, I simply didn’t feel like I deserved them. Surely I’d have to work a little harder for them first?

The above is an excerpt from a post I wrote for SheKnows.
