Everything Has The Same Value

Everyone can be your teacher, and everything can be an object of worship. When you can free yourself from the scales of judgement in your lower mind—where one thing is held in higher virtue than another—in your higher mind, everything has the same value. In this space, you see the teacher learns from their student, as the student learns from their teacher. In every exchange and in every relationship, there is value to realize. When you can accept yourself and your true nature, ...

The Heart of Self-Worth

"Thoughts become things," Mike Dooley says. You don't get what you deserve, you get what you think you deserve. Life provides your perceived worth, not your actual worth. Only when you connect with your intrinsic goodness — your courage and your kindness — do you allow, and feel you deserve, all of life's blessings. Only then, can you truly get what you deserve.

Exploring Pay-What-You-Can Pricing and What it Communicates

As a business owner, communicating that others are free to Pay-What-They-Can for your work positions you as willing to sell your work in charity. (You may want to consider at this point whether your business, or your clients, are, in fact, a charity.) In most cases neither party is a charity, so what you are truly communicating is that it's okay for a client to pay whatever they *think* they can, and that you are open and lenient to allowing others to value your work at less than it's worth, so long as the person deems they need it. Now this is only my opinion, but I feel if you are responsible enough to identify a need and seek a solution for it, than you are also responsible enough to find the means for fulfilling that need - i.e., if you want it, you need to find a way to get it.
