How Do I Know My Value And Worth?
How do I understand what my services are worth is something that I get asked about over and over again.
It’s something I see so often and comes in several disguises, and surfaces as doing prolonged free work, undercharging, uncertainty in what to offer and how to price it, all these result in paralysing any further profits in your business.
One factor for this I believe often stems from being employed for a large majority of time, when you’re employed by someone you have a job title and income all in place, so when it’s your own business and having to actually appreciate what you do and putting a price on that can become a massive stumbling block for many people.
Having a low self belief in your value and worth, and ultimately feeling uncomfortable with selling your services, and putting a price on what what you offer can hold you back for years…read on to discover how you can get over this hurdle.
5 Ways To Understanding Your Value And Worth
1. Believe in yourself –
First and foremost you can’t put a value on yourself unless you believe in yourself first. So grab a pen and paper and write out –
– Why you are doing your business
– The results you have achieved so far
– What you do to help your ideal clients
It’s time for you to believe you are the best option for your clients
2. Value Your Time –
The main thing to consider is your value in the context of time you spend working on something because getting time back is the most valuable thing you can do. If you are undervaluing what you offer, it is stealing time away from other opportunities, your own business growth, your free time, and creating new clients for your business.
3. Realise Your Potential –
It’s time to stop the negative talk, and really appreciating what you’re great at and realise all of your capabilities
Working on your mindset daily, and focusing on whats great will then result in you achieving amazing things and most likely exceeding your potential.
Decide that you are focusing on where you are heading and nothing will come between you and it.
When you ignore your potential you will reduce your value, this will result in you feeling undervalued. This shows up as undercharging, over giving, having no boundaries, all of these will build up to resentment in the long run.
4. Work From Your Passion –
By recognising the value in what you offer you are able to spend your time doing what you love and in turn this ignites your passion for what you love to do.
When you are achieving your goals this will directly align with your purpose which fuels everything you do and drives up your value even higher. When you are working from your passion you will never feel like you work a day in your life.
5. Money Mindset –
Explore you money mindset, these are often negative sentences we’ve told ourselves for so long we don’t actually realise we are saying them.
For example, money is hard to come by, my audience won’t pay my prices, I don’t do it for the money, I don’t deserve to earn that amount of money.
Having money mindset issues will obviously effect making any profits in your business and are a factor to so many businesses failing.
