LIFE VALUES; The What and The Why.


Life values are those guiding rules you set for yourself to live by. They are the things you believe are important in the way you live and work.  It's like the formula you use in leading the life you want to live.

Life values determine your priorities in life and they can be a good way to determine if your life is turning out the way you want it to. When the things you do and say match your life values, you can say that you are on your way to living a fulfilled life.

As we progress and grow in life, our values may change or we may develop added values, for example when you get a new job, success will get a higher priority that other values in your life, when you get married, family and developing a balance between work and life will have higher priorities.

We know the world will be a much better place if everyone lived according to their values, but unfortunately, that is not the case. There are people who don't even have any values that they hold to heart, there are those who may have values but don't live by them, so to an extent, we can say that our values are defined by how we act or live. This doesn't mean we cannot desire certain values and adjust our behaviors and attitude to be in line with what we hope to achieve. It is very important for us to identify our life values, and here's why...

Why you need to identify your values:
·        They help you understand yourself better
·        They help you recognize the things that are most important to you
·        Becoming aware of your values gives your life a sharper focus and better clarity
·        Values can help you easily make certain life changing decisions

As we grow, our definition of fulfillment and success changes and so will our personal values, which is why we should always compare our lives with our life values to make sure we are on the path we want to be on. This is one of the keys to feeling balanced in life.
