True self-worth is a sense of internal composure that gives you complete freedom. When you have it your life choices will spring from genuine desires and talents, rather than a need to achieve or impress.
…to take responsibility for your own happiness and to take steps to create the life you want is to show maturity and generosity. To upgrade your levels of self-worth and happiness is neither self-centred nor indulgent, and it will actually have a positive effect on all those around you.
