Does it matter what you deserve?

While it’s true that we pursue only that which we believe we deserve, or what we believe we’re capable of achieving, the irony of life is found when we pause to consider what we deserve in the first place.

It’s a distraction that leads us further from purpose and closer to self-serving behaviour.

It’s a delicate balance between recognising when we may be undermining our self-worth versus connecting with the value that we wish to create.

When we lack awareness of the value of who we are, we slip into a victim-like mindset where we feel threatened with insignificance or irrelevance when others do not validate or appreciate us.

That’s when we find reason to focus on what we deserve, or we deride ourselves for what we believe we’re incapable of achieving.

The moment we believe we have to claim what we deserve, we lose sight of the struggle of the human who is treating us poorly. It also means that we’re devalued because of how they are treating us.

Whether either is true is irrelevant, because the way to ensure that we don’t lose ourselves to their behaviour is to ensure that we are connected, with conviction, about who we are in that moment.

The more mindful we are about the value that we wish to create in every moment, the less we’ll be distracted by bad behaviour from others, and the more we’ll be focused on creating beautiful moments, rather than lamenting bad ones.

It all starts with honest, sincere, self-awareness that is focused on the gratitude of who we are, rather than our sense of entitlement to the validation or inclusion that we need from others.

It always starts with you.
