The whole idea of value or valuation is predefined in the Concepts of worth. By my definition, value is more to me like “Your Flavour”
The value of something is a measure of how much that something is worth in cash or in any other element that can be translated as worth. Value depends on how much benefit and pleasure that something is going to give a person. Value is unique to every individual and is based on personal preferences and circumstances; different people can have a different value for the same item.
The value of an individual is basically how much that person is worth. The value of a person depends on how much output the individual is expected to generate in the future. Organizations spend a lot of value (time and money) in the search of values so that in the long term, greater value is generated through the dissipation of value by his/her employees in the place of service. This is also pretty imperative especially in the context of marriage, when individuals set out to choose a life partner, their eyes is not only set on the immediate, but on the possibility of a better future with whoever they choose to pitch their tent with. The future is a key element in juxtaposing value but more importantly, the NOW is important in identifying value and this “NOW value” is measured by actions and reactions to the immediate element of measure of value as defined by the worth you put on yourself.
To be aware of oneself is to have a concept of oneself.
The self concept is how we think about and evaluate ourselves, your self-worth is the way you see yourself, the way you evaluate and perceive yourself, your social and psychological humanism, a measure of your inundating identity. The scripture so defined self-worth… “As a man thinks in his heart, so his he”, this clearly defines every individual as a product of thought and so far more, what you think on the inside defines your actions, reactions, interactions and appearance on the outside which ultimately defines you. The big question is then palpable; what fills your thought? What governs your thought pattern? What is on the inside of you that defines you? To what extent do you value yourself?
Your self-worth predefines your self esteem and self esteem is measured by the extent to which we like accept or approve of ourselves or how much we value ourselves. Self esteem always involves a degree of evaluation and we may have either a positive or a negative view of ourselves. What runs through you when you wake up in the morning, who are you when you go to bed at night, here at your place of service, how do you see yourself, what is your NOW value and how relevant and valuable will you be in the future as measured by you and the people who invested value in you with the potentials of you reproducing greater value. Are you a value-driven investment with the potential of producing better value as ROI
What is your surface and inner value? Who are you when you are being watched or supervised and what do you represent when you are trusted and left to deliver with little or no supervision. Believe me, your true value is real, when there is no one there to measure or evaluate you, your value is defined by the thoughts of your heart, your thought pattern is orchestrated and engineered by what you feed your mind with (that is why it’s called “food for thought”). Take a sit back, stop for a minute and think. You are what you think and that’s what the world will see.
