A Balanced Life With Sarah Jensen IT’S NOT ABOUT DESERVING, IT’S ABOUT DECIDING. I spent a whole lot of my life trying everything I could think of to feel, and be, ‘worthy’. With every tick on my to-do list, goal achieved, experience had, or country visited, I reinforced the belief that my worth was directly related to how much I had done. It was like my worth was something I had to earn or prove. And if good things did happen to me – either through genuine effort or sheer luck – I felt like I had to either explain away the achievement (it wasn’t me, I’m not that great, it’s no big deal) or adopt ‘shields up’ status so that compliments couldn’t penetrate my protective armour. Here’s how it looked… > Congratulations, Sarah, your podcast is going gangbusters! Oh, yeah, my guests are amazing, I’m so lucky. But I haven’t had millions of downloads like the big names in the business. > Sarah, I love your outfit. This old thing? I got it on sale at a discount store about 10 years ago, see it’s got chocolate stains on it and a hole here in the sleeve. No achievement was ever enough to feel truly good about myself, and if other people tried to offer kindness or congratulations I’d shut them down quick smart. 94

And then I heard 7 little words that changed everything… “It’s not about deserving, it’s about deciding”. Boom. Mind blown. Heart cracked wide open. And a lifetime of beliefs, stories and BS pulled apart in seconds. It’s the kind of statement that changes you in an instant, from the inside out. Think about it. What if your worth has nothing to do with your achievements? What if it has nothing to do with how much you earn, how many languages you speak, whether you can touch your nose with your tongue, or anything else you can have, do, or be? What if your worth just IS? And what if, from that place of knowing in your bones that you’re worthy and deserving of anything you could ever want, require, need or desire, you then chose what you wanted your life to look like? If the path you take in life stopped being about deserving, and became all about deciding, well I ask you, my friend… What would you decide? Sarah Jensen Sarah Jensen
