...you were a YES!
You weren't quite born yet, but you were already significant.
Your value came from your very being.
And by the way, it still does.
You can't earn it, you can't become it, you are it, and it can only be received.
Once you recognize YESness as your essence, the only thing left to do is abundantly express it.
"Your preciousness lies in your essence; it cannot be lost by anything." Zhuangzi
