“Your self-worth is more important than your net worth”

"Your self-worth is more important than your net worth” is a popular saying that has been credited to several people. “Self worth is better than net worth” was cited in print in 1987 and credited to Robert N. Altman. “Net worth is not self-worth” was cited in 1991. “We cannot measure our self-worth by our net worth,” financial author Suze Orman wrote in 1997.

American evangelical Christian pastor and author Rick Warren wrote in 1997:

“The Bible says ‘A good name is more desirable than great riches.’ In other words, your self-worth is more important than your net-worth.”

American singer and author Patti LaBelle wrote in Patti’s Pearls (2001), “Your self-worth is more important than your net worth.”


27 July 1987, The Times (Trenton, NJ), Frank Tyger column, pg. A2, col. 1:
“Self worth,” says Robert N. Altman, “is better than net worth.”

1991
Pg. 118:
For some reason, many of us (especially men) attach a great deal of our self-worth to our finances. If we’re poor, we feel worthless. (Ironically, we talk about our personal “net worth.” Believe me, your net worth is far more than your bank account.)

13 March 1991, St. Albans (VT) Messenger Shopping News, “Communication, flexibility keys to coping with hard times” by Dr.Val Farmer, pg. 3, col. 3:
Don’t judge yourself by material possessions or status in the eyes of others. Don’t worry about what the neighbors think. Your abilities, competence and character didn’t change with your change in fortune. Net worth is not self-worth.

How To Earn The Respect Of Others
By Rick Warren

Having a good reputation is an indispensable factor in succeeding at work. A recent study revealed the difference between top salesmen and average ones was not talent, but reputation. People trusted the top salesmen more. No one likes to do business with someone they don’t respect.

The Bible says “A good name is more desirable than great riches.” In other words, your self-worth is more important than your net-worth.
