The greatest lesson you will ever learn in life!


So many people go through life not knowing this until it's almost time to bow out. This is diminished in us by the environment we live in, by the media (of course lol), and by others who don't want to us to succeed as a people because they make too much money off our ignorance. So what is it? So what's the greatest lesson you'll ever learn in life?


The greatest lesson you will ever learn in life is to
KNOW YOUR OWN VALUE!


What does that mean?


We often do things that are counterproductive to our mental, physical or emotional state because it makes us look good to others or because it takes too much effort and we would rather sit on our hump instead of doing it.


We only show ourselves how much we VALUE ourselves when we
DO WAHT WE BELIEVE IS RIGHT!
So if you know that sugar will eventually give you diabetes and you continue to drink excessively and make sure you stop through the krispy creame drive thru a few times a week then you are not acting in accordance with your beliefs and as a result you feel bad and guilty for not resisting this temptation.

You are valuable in at least a million different ways!!!!!!!!
Your legs are worth a million dollars to a person who doesn't have any. Your sight is worth a million to a person who doesn't have it. If you already have children you are worth the world to them. If you don't have them now you will, and you'll be worth so much not noly to them but to tens and hundreds of generations who you will spawn the creation of in the future! You are valuable to your job, your country, your mate, someone depends on you for something and you are extreemly valuable to them!
Just think about how you were created. That little sperm cell had to beat out MILLIONS of other sperm cells in order to create you! That means that GOD must have led you past all the others for a reason. You are here for a purpose. And it's not just to be a sexual animal, sexing everything in sight, or get that oh so desired Louis Vuitton luggage set! Oh and by the way when you sleep with just anybody for a cheap thrill or a few dollars you are diminishing your value not increasing it.

FREEDOM said...

Knowing your worth/value is THE KEY that unlocks so many facets of our lives!

If you really think about it. We are always encouraging others, and yet sometimes fail to encourage the most precious creation God created...SELF!

The one that we wake up to EVERYDAY lol. The one that will never ever leave us!!

The inner and outer reflection of OUR SELF!!!

Excellent post. I have been discovering my TRUE POWER of mastering self lately and knowing my own worth that will NEVER diminish!

Good post! So simple, yet so true.

FREEDOM said...

Sometimes saying NO not feeling guilty or regretful is the ONLY way to perserve one's SELF, which says that-that person really and truly knows his or her own worth/value.

Had to learn this lesson TODAY lol

Amen on that! It took me a long time to learn to love myself for who i am and stop comparing myself to the joneses or the Hollywood definition of others. For a long time, I just wanted to please everyone and became unhappy in that process...anyways, i am digressing. I love this entry!

this something that we need to read though because our freedom is not guaranteed

there have been many times in this country where whites gave us siome lead way but took it back as soon as they wanted too, reconstruction, jim crow, civli rights, the criminal criminal justice system

thanx for you input my brother

i still have that problem unfortunately (trying to please others and comparing myself to others)

i don't know if it will ever stop

but in order to minimze it you have to know your worth
