Episode 48: Feeling Unworthy

podcast Jan 29, 2020

“How can I feel worthy of this job?” and “Am I worthy of this amazing fiance?”

These are just some of the questions I was asked recently this past week. For each person it will be about something specific in their life, whether it is about their career, a certain status, level of income, romantic partnership, children, weight… the list is endless and it’s unique to each individual.

A huge reason why there is so much confusion and angst about worthiness is that we’ve co-mingled two definitions and purposes of what it means to be “worthy” into one word, and now apply it to every situation.

Listen to this podcast episode where I breakdown exactly why we’re all confused and what it truly takes to own your worthiness as a human and as a leader.
