A clear list of personal values so that you can identify YOUR values
Have you identified your personal values? That is, the values you want to live out in your everyday life.
Personal values help guide us in our everyday decision making. They’re critical to wellbeing and having direction in life. And the truth is, these aren’t exclusively for your work life or exclusively for your personal life. Having personal values that you can live out 24/7 is key to ensuring that you stay true to who you are at work and at home.
Identifying my personal values has been transformational in my own life, but I recognize that it can be hard knowing where to start if you’ve never thought about this before. So, I’ve put together a short list of some personal values that might resonate with you and help put you on the path of living a life that you love.
1 – Authenticity
Authenticity means being true to who you are. Perhaps it’s important to you that you live authentically to who you are, not worrying about judgments from other people or even from yourself. Having this as a personal value will remind you to do just that.
2 – Determination
Are you someone who strives to never give up? Do you find a lot of satisfaction in sticking to your goals and completing what you’ve decided to do? Well, determination might just be a personal value you can identify with.
3 – Acceptance
Acceptance is a great one because you can define it in a way that best resonates with you. Perhaps acceptance means that you accept those around you for who they are, without judgment. Maybe it means accepting yourself. Or, it could have to do with accepting the situations you find yourself in.
More values you might resonate with
This was quite a short list, but perhaps you still managed to find one or two values that resonate with you. Or, maybe you didn’t, and you need to do more exploring.
There are hundreds of values out there. I’ve created a video where I’ve narrowed it down to 8 values to get you started. That way, it won’t be too overwhelming, but chances are, one or two of them might resonate with you a bit.
So, don’t stop here. Head on over to YouTube with me so that we can get you started down the path of uncovering your own personal values.
