You are better than you think you are, and here’s why:

1. You realize you are your biggest asset.

“Don’t sell yourself short; you are your best asset.”― Matshona Dhliwayo

An asset is not merely financial; it is a useful or valuable thing, quality, or person. Unfortunately, many people go through life not realizing this fact — If you don’t value yourself, no one else will.

Unfortunately, many trolls on the internet and in real life will gladly keep you from understanding that. People will revel in your misery and failure just to say they are better than you; no, you can’t change that but what you can change is how you develop yourself.

Are you someone that brings value to others?

Are you consistent with self-development and who you want to be?

Do you build up your skills and knowledge every chance you get?

Do you invest in yourself?

Are you taking care of your mental well-being?

Are you clarifying your thoughts via meditation, gratitude, journalling, and reflection?

If so, you are better than you think you are.

2. You have integrity in your actions.

The definition of integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. The honest part is being true to yourself or who you want to be at your core.

Integrity is essential because it demands truthfulness. If you are not honest in your dealings with others and yourself, you can only go so far. Think about the many CEOs, politicians, and other public figures who had a downfall due to a lack of integrity.

“Integrity is the essence of everything successful.” — Buckminster Fuller.

Signs you are a person with integrity:

You are someone people count on.

You have an excellent reputation.

You treat others with respect.
