Michelle Bourque 0:39 Hello, hello. Hello. Welcome back to the podcast. Friends, I want to talk to you today about one of the most important things you need to know in order to make more money in sales. Sounds fun, right. And I will say the idea came from a recent girls weekend with my nieces. So you can thank the nine and 13 year olds for the info today. And here’s the truth. We all need to learn these lessons at every single age. And I still work on this daily as well. So it never goes away. And today I’m talking about knowing your worth. And the reason this is important, like I mentioned for all of us at every age, is because it really does allow us to step into our power and bring more abundance into our lives. So here’s the backstory. I was sitting with a nine year old one morning, and she was the one who would actually get up with me to watch the sunrise, the 13 year old, well, let’s just say she likes her beauty sleep, right? So we’re chatting, and I want you to be sure that you listen to what we are chatting about here. Okay, because this pertains to all of us, ladies. I’m telling her how so often we look to external sources to determine our worth, and how sometimes we think it’s things like grades, or friends, or whatever it might be for you, that allows you to determine your worth. And so often, we are just always chasing that thing. That thing that we think will make us worthy, but really, we are all ready, worthy. And we just need to know that internally. And then we can work and go after our dreams from that point. And we are way more powerful because we believe in ourselves. We are able to set priorities to set boundaries to start saying no. And then she says to me, oh, kinda like Thor, to which I took a wild guess because I hear them talk about this all the time. So I asked her if that was one of the marvels. Yes, she confirmed he is worthy, and he can pick up the hammer. So of course, I’m like, That’s so good. Get it? He already knows his worth. So he has the power. I think that’s what they’re trying to tell you. Right. And she agreed. I’m not exactly sure if that is totally correct. Because really, the only thing if I’m being completely transparent that I know about the Marvel’s is that Chris effing sky is a pretty good look into right. And I don’t think He’s Thor. So that could be maybe an entirely different podcast altogether. But I see so Michelle Bourque 3:44 many young women people pleasing, saying, yes, when you really mean to say no, not setting boundaries. All of that really builds the stress and the overwhelm. And you’re thinking that your self worth is tied up into all of that, especially you guys in sales, thinking your self worth is dependent on the sales number, or your percent to plan. Or I’ve also seen it with my weight loss clients thinking the scale, the number on the scale determines your self worth. No, the numbers are all arbitrary things made up. The numbers do not determine your self worth. And when you know that when you intrinsically know that you are worthy because you simply woke up. You are here. That’s when you start making big changes in your life. That’s when you’re able to start taking on new bigger goals and seeing even bigger results in your life and it’s kind of funny, once you let go of the attachment that you have to the external things determine your self worth. Just like the little one said you have the power. It might not be the hammer that you’re picking up. But it might be your sales game, your goal setting, or standards in your relationships. If you have a high level of self worth, you will view yourself with a higher standard. And you will have the utmost faith that you can set and achieve your goals. That is basically the same thing as self confidence. Sometimes people will come to me and want more confidence, more self confidence. And really, that is the idea that you know, you will figure it out. Now, sometimes people think, if I’m too confident, I might be cocky, that is not it at all, you can be confident, know that you will figure it out. And also know that others can figure out their lives, we can all believe in ourselves. And the three of us, on our girls weekend, we’re also talking about people pleasing, and I was telling them that people pleasing is basically lying. Think about it. It’s like a vicious cycle that we get ourselves into, because we think our worth is tied to what others think of us, or the numbers or whatever that external validation is in your mind. And so we think we need to do all the things to make that other person like us. And if they like us, and think we’re doing well, then we can start to believe that we’re worthy. Let’s do this, let’s cut out the middle person and just get to the chase, do you really want to know what determines your self worth, the thoughts you have about yourself, the arbitrary numbers and whatever else might be in your way, get rid of it, you can just start thinking loving thoughts about yourself, you get to tell yourself, you are worthy, no matter what, it’s so much more fun to chase your dreams from that level. Think about this, think about a seed underground. And you have to make your way above the ground. That’s like when we are trying to quote unquote, become worthy. But what I want you to imagine is that you are already the flower. And from there, you can blossom more and propagate, spread the beauty. This is how you change your life. This is how you make more money. This is how you advance your career. And you know what else when you can drop all the shenanigans in between. And just know that your self worth is determined by your thoughts, and it is an inside job. You also feel way less stressed. So I want you to take some time today and think about what your current thoughts are of yourself. Write them down, get them on paper, so that you can actually look at them. Are they thoughts that make you feel worthy, because here’s the thing, you don’t have to keep them. Once you see them on paper, you have a greater awareness of what is going on in your mind. And you will know that those are simply thoughts you are thinking they are not who you are. And sometimes I will tell you sometimes just seeing them makes you think, wow, that’s what I was thinking of myself. And you Michelle Bourque 8:28 can just start to drop that narrative. Start building a new one, one that makes you feel more worthy. And remember, do it in steps. Don’t go from something like I suck to I am the most amazing person in the world. You can start with something like I am doing my best today. Or I am committed to figuring this out. That alone can make a world of difference. So what have you taken from today’s podcast?
