3. Strengthening your sense of self-worth is a project of a lifetime.
“Learning and practicing the art of creating rather than waiting; throwing the net wide in order to meet a lot of people, men and women alike, who will enrich your life; operating from a mindset of abundance, not scarcity; developing and adhering to the attributes of a woman of high value; upholding your own standards; understanding that you are in control of your own choices—these skills strengthen your sense of self-worth and will improve all areas of your life. It’s the project of a lifetime.”~ Matthew Hussey
4. The best life is one in which we’re excited to wake up in the morning.
“The best life is one in which we’re excited to wake up in the morning. When we have that, we ‘win’ no matter what happens in our love lives. With or without a person to share it with, we have a passionate, fun, exciting and emotionally fulfilling existence. Whatever happens, we become extraordinary, and the truth becomes clear: we don’t enter relationships hoping to create an amazing existence, we come to them to share one with someone else.”

8. Take advantage of the possibilities and choices you are presented with NOW.
“There will come a day, perhaps not far in the future, when you will look at pictures of yourself at the age you are now, and you’ll be shocked at how young and beautiful you were. Perhaps you will be amazed that you spent any time at all focusing on your perceived flaws and failings instead of pursuing the things you wanted. You will see a person who had all of her life ahead of her, a woman with so many possibilities, so many opportunities and choices. Take advantage of them now.”
9. Nobody really wants to be alone.
“I think people don’t want be alone. Ultimately, we want to feel connected. We want to feel like there is someone who actually sees us in the world. That’s the big thing: to be seen. How many people actually feel seen?”~ Matthew Hussey

13. You are not changing who you are, you are becoming who you are.
“Often, when people advise, ‘Just be yourself,’ it’s a way of saying, ‘Don’t grow and change.’ What’s more, friends offer this advice when just being yourself has left you miserable and lonely. What they are really telling you is to stick with what you know, to stay with what is comfortable. And what I am telling you is that the new and improved you is you. You are not changing who you are, you are becoming who you are.”
14. Your life is your own.
“Independence and self-determination are important traits of the high-value woman. She has a life that she adores and is engaged in meaningful activities that make her passionate about each day.

She surrounds herself with people who reinforce her values and her confidence. She doesn’t rely on a man to be entertained. Her life is her own.”~ Matthew Hussey

16. Show people why you truly need them.
“A woman who knows who she is, strong and independent, understands how essential it is to show that she needs her guy in other ways.”~ Matthew Hussey

“If you want to meet a better quality man, you’re going to have to get used to taking more risks.”~ Matthew Hussey
18. There is no perfect MAN.

19. Don’t waste any time on someone who’s not planning a future with you.
