We’ve all heard about self-worth, but what exactly is self-value? Well, self-value is more behavioral than emotional, more about how you act toward what you value, including yourself than how you feel about yourself compared to others.
To value something goes beyond considering it as important; you also appreciate its qualities while investing time, energy, effort, and sacrifice in its nurturing or maintenance. If you value an old vase, you focus on the beauty of its design rather than the chips and cracks in the porcelain.
People often mix up self-value and self-esteem. The difference between the two is that those with high self-value will necessarily treat others with a sense of respect and worth. That’s why it’s essential to boost your self-value as soon as possible, and this is how!

Max Yasgur was hardly your typical Upstate New York dairy farmer. But he was the man who ultimately decided to “let” his land for the event. And he didn’t do it for free.
In fact, he raked in some pretty respectable fees.
