What are your values?Aug 29, 2023
In the busyness of life it's too easy to lose sight of what truly matters. As the demands of work, family, and daily responsibilities consume our time and energy, we often find ourselves feeling disconnected and unfulfilled.
One way to navigate this chaos and rediscover a sense of purpose is by rediscovering your personal values. These values are the guiding principles that define who you are, what you stand for, and how you want to live your life.
Your values are the beliefs, principles, and standards that are most important to you. They reflect what you consider to be morally right, fulfilling, and meaningful. These values shape your decisions, actions, and priorities, influencing every facet of your life – from your relationships and career choices to your habits and daily routines.
Understanding your personal values provides a clear framework for making decisions. When faced with choices, you can align them with your values, ensuring that your actions are in harmony with what truly matters to you. This leads to more authentic and satisfying outcomes.
Your values act as a compass, helping you prioritise your time and energy on activities that resonate with your core beliefs. This stops you from getting swept up in distractions that don't contribute to your personal growth and overall well being.
Self-discovery is a journey, and identifying your values is an important part of this process. As you delve into your values, you gain deeper insights into your strengths and how they serve you. This self-awareness fosters personal development and empowers you to embrace your authentic self.
Personal values also influence the people you attract into your life. By knowing and living in alignment with your values, you can build meaningful connections with others who share similar principles. This can lead to healthier and more fulfilling relationships. If you’ve been with me for a while, you know I talk about finding your PLU’s (People Like Us), this is especially important when you’re moving countries!
In addition, living a life aligned with your values minimises inner conflict and reduces the stress that comes from trying to conform to external expectations.
How can you rediscover your values?
Firstly, set aside time for reflection. Consider the moments in your life when you felt the most fulfilled, proud, and alive. What values were being expressed during those times?
From your reflections, identify a list of values that resonate with you. These could be honesty, creativity, family, freedom, compassion, adventure, and more. My personal values are family, freedom, growth and impact. Depending on how well you know me, you may be able to see how these are reflected in my life and business?
Finally, evaluate your daily routines, habits, and goals. Are they aligned with your values?
I encourage you to spend a little time discovering your personal values, it can lead you to a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
