A couple of months ago, I was speaking with the Rogue King, about what drives us to do the things we do and make the choices that we do. He suggested to me that perhaps we should look deeper, to our core values.
So what are our core values? Well simple put they are the things we believe in the most that direct what and how we think about our life. There are hundreds of values that we each hold but some hold more power over us than others. For example some peoples core value is love. For others it’s family or power, money, religion etc.
It is important for us to know and choose our core values are because they color everything we do in life. It’s like our constitution. A person whose core value is Family for example will make all decisions about what they do around their need for family. The career he chooses, the car he drives, the type of person he marries. It’s all connected.
I decided to look at my own core values and I thought I’d share with you what I have chosen to be my guiding values in order to achieve my dreams and life purpose.
I live and give love to all around me including myself. I give love regardless of how I feel but as directed by Gods word.
I am 100% responsible for my life and the results I experience. Everything I am, have or experience is a result of the choices and actions I’ve made in the past. I always have the ability to choose my response in life.
I live congruently with my beliefs and principles and do not compromise them. My word is my bond.
I maintain a positive attitude at all times, always looking for the upside in every situation. I believe every problem is an opportunity disguised.
I put my complete trust in God and the gifts, skills and talents he has placed in me.
I am a constant learner, always striving to get better each day, in every way.
I stand and face my fears each and every day to accomplish great things. I seek opportunity and not security.
I extend kindness, compassion, understanding and grace to all who need it.
I am a generous giver of my money, time and resources for the highest good of all.
I maintain strong control over my will, emotions, passions and thoughts at all times keeping them focused for my greater growth
I work hard at everything I do with the utmost care, excellence and attention to detail.
I hold myself to the highest standards in all that I am and do. I do not live according to the worlds standard but to Gods
I work diligently to ensure y body is in great physical condition through healthy lifestyle choices
I believe in using all of my God given creativity to imbue my life, relationships, work and passions with fun, excellence and impact
I constantly seek to improve on every area of my being through learning and application. The better I am, the better my life will be.
i always have a clear Godly vision for my life which i pursue daily.
I seek to live in peace with everyone in as much as it depends on me. I gaurd my inner peace and I’m guided by it.
I am still discovering more of myself and adjusting accordingly. Some values we have don’t benefit us and it’s imperative to identify them and remove them while picking out ones that pull us forward. I’d like to hear some of your core values so drop me a line.
