Monday Morning Motivation – Value

By: Curt Stowers

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day.

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


One of the biggest challenges that many people have is recognizing the value that they provide. This is a huge issue with massive implications.

When you undervalue yourself, you tend to go down paths that are quite unhealthy. Basically, you get into a mental loop where you don’t think you are “worth it.” This lack of appreciation of your value can be in the professional, personal, or spiritual space—all three are areas where we MUST appreciate the value we bring.

Some folks reading this might be thinking, “That’s easy for you to say, you are better at X, Y, or Z than me. That MAY be true. However, EVERY person that I have EVER met is better at A, B, and C than me! We each have incredible gifts and talents. Each of us is unique. And each of us has massive value. That is a message that we need to keep at the forefront of our mind each and every day.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • Where do you provide unique value?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning 

Have a great week!



About MMM: Each week I publish “Monday Morning Motivation” in the hopes that at least one person will find a bit of inspiration and that this inspiration will have a positive impact on their life. My motivation comes from experiences, reading, sermons, and discussions.
