Some people imagine themselves to be lacking because they don’t have the designer clothes, the big house with a perfect fence, or the sports car or private jet they were conditioned to want. Wanting material things is the highest-octane fuel that keeps the fire of low self-esteem burning. If you fancy that you need fancy things to give yourself value, you will probably never have enough things and never value yourself.
The antidote to this addictive poison is to focus on the God-given things that you had when you were born. Whenever I think of how all of us come into this world as children, I am overwhelmed by the perfection of it all. I was busy being busy when my son were born. A little over twenty years ago, after the rules had changed and I had become more wordly, more mature and more certain of myself.
All you really have to do with your God-given self is work it, develop it, and improve on what you have. Realize that you are important to the entire world; what happens to the world begins with you.
