Give Yourself More Credit

Posted By: Randy GageNovember 13, 2018

Here's one more post on self-esteem, since it’s so vital to allowing yourself to live a prosperous life.  And the last thing I want to say about this is…

Give yourself more credit! 

You have accomplished a lot, against some very strong odds.  You have done things many humans have never been able to achieve.  Some of those things are amazing.

Many of you survived Boot Camp for the armed forces.  Some of you were in Special Forces.  Some of you have parachuted into a war zone, landed a jet on an aircraft carrier, or have been shot at.  Some of you have been seriously wounded and rebounded.

Many of you have or are taking care of an elderly parent, a sick sibling, or a special needs child.  Do you realize how special you are for that?

Many of you have birthed a child.  Or a few.  I can’t even begin to tell you how in awe of you I am by that.

Many of you have faced down a scary medical diagnosis.  Faced down a disease and won.  Conquered a disability.

Some of you were honors students.  Achieved the pinnacle of success in a sport, or scholastic achievement, or artistic endeavor.

I have fear of heights and don’t know how to swim.  So most of you amaze me by your ability to lean over a balcony or jump in a lake.

If you really did an inventory, you’d find that you have actually done some pretty remarkable things.   And lots of them.

So how about you change the perspective from what you haven’t done, to what you’ve already proven.

And take some pride in that.  Believe in yourself a little more.  And recognize that you’re a very talented creature!

  1. Brother Randy. Very Powerful and Inspiring Article. When I was 17 Years Old Growing Up In Brooklyn New York Marcy Housing projects. I wrote Doen 175 Goal/Dream List on what I wanted to Do Be and Have. I have accomplished 100 of those Goals so Far. Brother Randy I would like to say thank you for your Programs that I invested in Midas mentality, Prosperity How to apply the Spiritual Laws to create Health, Wealth and Abundance and lastly Power Prosperity Program. Brother Randy your Program Midas mentality was Epic In My humble Opinion. I still do the Midas Mentaly program 2 times per you and do the Exercises. I have Purchased the Midas mentality program and have given the program to Family and Friends. Thank you brother Randy For creating these programs. Peace , Blessing and Love.

    1. Wow, I so love to hear stories like this, when people studiously apply my work and create such results. I'm humbled and honored. And salute you for your efforts. bravo! -RG

  2. See ... Here’s my confusion. You suggest, convincingly - at least initially, that we all need to “take credit” for what we’e accomplished. And, yes, I agree we’ve all accomplished some great things, even the most despicable of us!

    But this post includes things others have accomplished that YOU would find worthy. I’m sure when you’re with others and these ‘rhings’ come up in the conversation, your body language if not your words convey your beliefs.

    I get that we should have self-worth as well - even if others don’t notice, or convey it if they do. But what if it’s our egos overvaluing what we’ve accomplished and that’s why no one else had noticed - nothing worth noticing ... It sure would be motivation for believing in our worthiness if others noticed.

    I just read today’s blog post from Seth Godin about his new book out today on marketing. Does it come down to our having to market our ‘things’ that WE believe worthy to see if they are indeed worthy???

    Still Considering all of this ... BUT here’s one notion that I believe strongly: that we can AND SHOULD acknowledge the actions of others when we notice and appreciate them! It will help with their self esteem and encourage their continuation, their improving as they do so. It plants the seeds of what we might accomplish in similar and even totally different situations. AND hopefully our acknowledgement will be noticed by others who will engage more / have higher self esteem as well.

    BOTTOM LINE: We’re all in a more positive place and everyone’s lives are improved!!!

    1. Totally agree with your thoughts, "we can AND SHOULD acknowledge the actions of others when we notice and appreciate them!" A;l I'm suggesting is you give yourself the same benefit. -RG

  3. What about having the courage to 'KNOW THYSELF' which is a message inscribed in the forecourt of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, but is a path most people do not want to follow.

    1. Just curious, you live in high rises, do you avoid the balcony, my fav spot in a lot of apartments.. cheers David

  4. I have an ongoing "Curriculum Vitae" (resume) file on my computer, even though year 2001 was the last time I was an employee. I expanded the CV concept to listing accomplishments from all areas of my life: 5K walking races I completed, webinars I hosted, seminars & courses I attended, adventures I experienced (such as counterweighted high wire bicycles/unicycles and glass floors). And each year I keep a separate digital file of compliments I received during that year. Sometimes other people's observations (compliments) remind me of the things I do that I take for granted. Both files help me remember the awesome things I have accomplished and experienced.
