Recognizing Self-Worth

A quick online search for “how to measure self-worth” will ultimately result in a wide variety of measuring suggestions. Here are some of the most popular we found:

  1. How influential/powerful your contacts are.
  2. What you do for a living.
  3. How much you own.
  4. What your physical and emotional appearances look like.

Truth is, none of these even come close to being able to accurately measure just how how valuable you really are because self-worth cannot be measured by worldly standards.

So how can we measure our self-worth?

President Thomas S. Monson  once taught, “The worth of a human soul is its capacity to become as God.”  

In other words, our worth comes from who we have the ability to become. And, as sons and daughters of a living God, we each have the potential to someday become eternal gods and goddesses, making us worth far more than any worldly attribute could ever measure.
