'implications range' far beyond

Hello everyone

I came across this sentence and could not figure out what emboldened part means.

Being properly valued is so important. You can hear in this story that the implications range far beyond just finances into the realm of self-respect and self-confidence.

Thanks in advance

    I would gloss "implications" there as impact or ramifications. I would probably NOT use implication in the original sentence. I mainly use implications when the connections are "suggested". In this case the links are more direct and either of the words I suggested would work better (in my opinion - I am not saying the OP is "wrong".)

    So: being valued is important. It has an impact on a range of things in addition to the financial benefit.

    Is that clear?
