It isn't what you make that determines your worth. Worth and value is sometimes used synonymously, but do they express the same meaning? The literal definition of Worth means "The value equivalent to that of someone or something under consideration; the level at which someone or something deserves to be value or rated, and the definition of Value is "the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something. So you can safely ascertain by these two definitions that worth and value are pretty much used to describe the same thing.
Now back to the original question that was posed. Do you know your worth? Are you determining your worth by how much you earn? If you are you may be underestimating your value. Consider the attorney that works for a non-profit organization that graduated top of his or her class at Harvard Law School. In that particular job they may not earn that much but if they chose to work for a multinational law firm their earnings would probably drastically increase to triple or quadruple to what they currently earn. So don't make the mistake of determining your worth based off of your salary consider all the other factors that measure worth.
