Let Your Core Values Guide You
So many people give up on their goals and desires way too early in the process of achieving them. Is this something you might be able to relate to? Today we our topic is Let Core Values Guide You For Your Best Happy And Healthy Life?
You know maybe you decided you wanted to reduce your weight and yet on day two of the process you are already willing to quit. Maybe if you’re dissatisfied with how your life is turning out, start by finding out why you’re feeling this way.
Once you put your finger on the why, it’s time to focus on changing your mindset from the toxic, negative self talks to the optimistic and productive mindset that will help you stay the course while you begin to create your clear WHY and develop the practice of discipline to keep moving toward your desired outcome.
We are diving into the idea of living your core values to help you stay on track with your goals.
The gift to quitting too soon is you get to realize right away what must change for you.
This will help you assess what needs to change, where you can clarify your values and start making plans.
Once you find the path that leads to your true self, keep at it.
Change doesn’t happen overnight, but if you remain resilient, disciplined and work hard to be clear on your WHY towards your goals, you can achieve much more than you ever thought possible.
Create a Life that Reflects Your Values
Way back in the year 2000 I took my first life coaching course. To tell you it was lifechanging would be an understatement.
In this first course we learned about values. I had never heard of living your values and no one in my life to that point had ever even discussed how important core values are in life or what they were.
It was an exciting course and since that day I have made it a point to practice living my values.
One reason we’re unhappy is that we’ve strayed from our core values and the goals we set up for ourselves.
Even if you never said your goals out loud or wrote them down in a diary, they’re stored deep in your mind.
Then, when the life we’re living isn’t getting us anywhere near these goals, we feel anxious and on edge. But, many times, we don’t connect the two things. So, we keep muddling through, making us more anxious and driving us even farther away from our goals and values.
Family, friends, and society are another factor that drives a wedge between us and our authentic selves. They all have their own opinion of how we should live our lives, and they’re not afraid to tell us. Repeatedly.
Many times, we seem to tell ourselves that it’s just easier to follow along, it's not by the way. After all, they know us better than ourselves, so who are we to doubt them? But the reality is when you carry out another person’s idea of how you should live, it ultimately backfires because you’re not following your true path.
When was the last time you took a moment to think about your core values?
Have you ever taken the time to seriously consider what your values are?
We aren’t talking about something’s monetary worth here–your personal core values, or your basic and fundamental knowing or attitudes that guide your actions, are a huge part of how you live your life.
You see, living in a way to honour your values is very powerful. Today I will share with you the way I was able to Clarify my values.
If you set aside some time, an hour would be an excellent start so you can do this.
Why would you want to take the time to clarify your values to live a healthy and vibrant life?
Living your values makes your heart sing!
Living your values allows you to honour yourself at a core level.
When I learned what my core values are it changed everything when it came to my health and for that, I am very grateful.
Understanding and defining your personal values is a major step toward living the life you want to live.
When you focus on your fundamental values, you ensure you’re living your life in a way that suits you and all your goals, dreams, and interests.
What are some examples of personal core values?
There are quite a few personal values out there.
Values differ in importance from person to person. In fact, differences in values often lead to lots of conflict and controversy between people!
While the importance of different values varies so greatly from person to person, here are a few examples of what some core values might be:
• ….and many, many more!
Personal values can often be described in one word, capturing the essence of larger opinions and feelings about something.
For example, if one of your personal values is relationships, it may be very important for you to honour all your relationships in life–romantic, familial, friendships, and otherwise.
How do you determine what your true personal values are?
Your personal values exist deep within yourself. These values, when measured against how you’re making choices and living your life, help you determine whether you’re living life the way you truly want to live it.
Often, your values can be a big indicator of whether you’re following the right pathway in life.
These values work in sync with your intuition.
For example, when you get that sudden urge that “something doesn’t feel quite right,” consider how the present situation aligns with your personal values. If it clashes with your fundamental values and knowledge, you’re likely getting signals that you’re heading down a path that won’t make your heart sing.
Determining your values can feel tricky, but there are ways to narrow down your feelings and best understand where your fundamental beliefs lie.
A good way to begin determining your personal values is to look through an extensive list of them; you can find them online and in various psychology and self-help books. Browse this list and determine which values resonate most with you.
Don’t spend a ton of time considering each one extensively. Instead, allow your intuition to guide you and quickly highlight each one that feels right to you.
Once you have a highlighted list, focus on the ones you marked with more consideration–think about why each of these values stood out to you and jot down a few notes for each one.
At this point, you can even take your remaining values and arrange them in a list beginning with the one you find most important.
How can you use your core values to live life the way you want?
People face tough challenges and decisions every day. However, when you have a good grasp of what your core values are, you’re more likely to make choices in a way that makes you feel confident in your decision-making. For example, after making your list of personal values, keep it handy. The next time you face a tough challenge, pull out your list.
Consider each of your options against your personal values–which choice best aligns with your values? Are there any options that seem to push against your personal values?
Use these driving questions with your list of values to make an informed decision you can feel good about afterward.
By doing this work you now can live your best life!
By going through the process to clarify your values will allow you to do things you never have for yourself!
