My good friend, Grace Yvonne Attard, publishes a post on Facebook called "The Daily Grace". Today's post was about self-worth and entrepreneurship and it struck a chord with me. In Grace's words, "low self worth can play a number on entrepreneurs like nothing else can. It could result in bad hires, suboptimal charge out rates, limited vision for your company, playing with the small guys and not the big guys......all of which are detrimental to our businesses."

In the realm of Emotional Intelligence, we call it self-regard. It is the ability to respect and accept yourself - essentially liking the way you are. To have healthy self-regard is to be able to appreciate your strengths along with your weaknesses. It's seeing the positive aspects and possibilities along side of your negative aspects and limitations while still feeling good about yourself...warts and all.
