Notable Quotable – Worthiness

Act as if you are worthy to have what you want,

and the universe will demonstrate that your faith is justified.

                            ~ Alan Cohen

I really like this Alan Cohen quote. So often we feel unworthy of our dreams and even our goals…but when we do this, we are sending the wrong message to the Universe.

Even if we don’t exactly believe we are worthy of our wishes, we have to act as if we are. Because then the vibes we send out will serve to capture and direct the desired results to us, where they belong!

We must have faith…because we are worthy! Say this to yourself every day: I am worthy. I am worthy. I am worthy.

And so you are…


Do you feel worthy? If not, can you pretend that you are? Do you believe that acting as if will deliver desired results?

  1. I’m a firm believer in faking it – I don’t very often feel that I’m worthy and have a quote in my diary that tells me I am enough. Maybe if I read it often enough I’ll believe it. Thanks for the quote.

    • I know how you feel Pamela. Why is it so hard for us humans to not believe we are worthy?? So many of us suffer from that. I think it’s all the pressure society puts on us to be perfect…


  2. Hi, Michele!

    This is excellent. “Act as if” is one of the principles I learned and taught in my motivational seminar program. If you aren’t as successful now as you would like to be, you can start by acting as if. Dress the part. When you look your best you can’t help feeling better about yourself. Sit, stand, walk, talk, breathe and think the way a successful person would do those things. Notice the difference it makes in your attitude and how people regard you. “Ask with integrity” is a related principle. Asking (the universe) with integrity means that you work hard and thoroughly prepare, rendering yourself worthy of receiving that for which you ask.

    Thank you very much for the inspiration, dear friend Michele!

    • I like that one Shady: “Ask with integrity”. Amen to that!
      I always try to walk with my head up. It does make you feel better when you’re walking tall and proud. Act as if…I should have won an academy award already! 🙂


  3. Oh this is a heavy topic. When I was young, due to bullying, I never thought I was worthy of much of anything actually. Today, I know I am but there are days when that old devil creeps up so that is when I do what Shady has written…I dress up nice and stand tall and pretend. You know…it works! We all need to know that we are of value and deserve the good things that have happened because it happened for a reason. The bad stuff happens also but we forget about the good things and should come to terms with the fact that we did earn the good as well.

    • Ah, the terrible after-effects of bullying. I know them well! That devil creeps in on me too Birgit. And sometimes it can be bigger than ourselves, but we just have to keep repeating a mantra of “I am worthy” until we believe it — again. It’s hard, I know.


  4. There are so many things that can wreak havoc on self-esteem. Bullying did that to me when I was a child as well, but in the end, it made me stronger and more determined. Everyone is worthy of and good at something in this world. 🙂

    • Bullying can really ruin self-esteem. I think I suffer PTSD from bullying. Isn’t that awful? I’m so glad that schools have cracked down on bullying. Back in my day, the school officials just ignored it. At least nowadays they’re cognizant of the after effects and work to stop it and have No Bullying policies.
      Thanks for dropping by Debbie.

      • I’m so sorry, Michele! 😦 Yes, when we were going to school, there was no focus on dealing with bullying. That has definitely changed for the better but I think the intensity has worsened with social media.
