Personal Market Value

What are you worth?


What’s your value to other people?

Why do people choose YOU you hang out with, do business with, Friend you, love you . . . Why you instead of everyone else?

It’s a free market out there for relationships. Everyone has lots of options . . . The “inventory” of relationships available to each of us is limited only by our personal “Reach” . . . The development of our personal Sphere of Influence.

The “Mega Personal Value” humans might “know” 10,000 people while most of the rest of us really know @ 250 people . . . and probably have “casual relationships” with another 800 or so.

Given all of the above, is it fair to say that fulfillment of your Life Purpose/Mission relies heavily on your ability to develop your personal “marketability” such that you attract the “right people” into your life?

I don’t have all of the answers to this large societal topic . . . but I do have some provocative questions/statements that might help you come to your own conclusions.

Uniqueness – How aware are you of your special and unique talents and characteristics? Do you Honor these and capitalize on them as STRENGTHS . . . or are you suppressing them in an effort to “fit in”?

Whose life are you living? Yours or someone else’s?

What do you STAND for? What’s your niche? Your specialized knowledge?

Who do you know?

Do you understand that a large percentage of you personal power comes from the relationships you have with other people?

“Connectors” tend to have more value because they operate at a very high level as they serve everyone they know.

So . . . it’s not ALL about what YOU can do for others . . . it’s largely about Who you know who can fulfill the needs of others.

In a sense – Perhaps the most successful people are those who are the best delegators. These folks know who they are and where their talent and personal boundaries and excel in those areas . . . and they delegate everything else to other people through referrals – connecting people.

Be a RESOURCE for other people, and your value increases exponentially.

Discover your personal NICHE and stick with it!
