Do you value yourself? How do YOU measure worth? We live in a society that often defines worth by "net worth" (the amount of property associated to this person). What has worth to you? If you were to interview people you get a diverse amount of answers. If you then ask the question "what brings you peace?" You get distinctly different answers.
The honest truth is, if you use the squares above at exactly equal amounts to try and balance your worth, you're wrong. Why? Because no one else is going to be in your head all the time but you.
Years ago, at the age of 13, Magnus Carlsen played a game of chess against the World Champion Gary Kasparov. The game ended in a draw, which was astounding for Magnus. It is even talked about until today. There is a lot of footage on Youtube of this game-where a 13 year-old won a draw against the World Champion. What is not shown on Youtube are the next few games where Kasparov absolutely destroys Carlsen.
This creates an "availability bias" and we all get to talk about how magnificent Carlsen was. Its inspiring. It feels good. Does it paint an accurate picture? We all have talents, we all have opportunities to grow.
WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE
This is how to develop a growth mindset. Professionals and those who are successful often look at talents and turn weaknesses into strengths. In the video game culture there is a common question "Is this a feature or a bug"? Is it a fault or something that I can use to enhance myself? Why not both?
