The Key Importance of Identifying Your Personal Values


Abstract art

Knowing your personal values is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.


Values are the things that drive us, and everyone has their own combination of core values. They tie directly to our intrinsic motivations, our aspirations and our actions. 


I love to talk about values because they connect to our sense of self. Getting clarity on values is one of the most critical things for anyone to get themselves un-stuck from somewhere they don’t want to be.


Upholding values that aren’t yours can be a lot like wearing the wrong size of shoe: those around you might have no idea, but every step of the way, you know something is wrong.


Take the time to reflect on what your core values are: not those of your friends or family, and not those you think you should have as top values. You don't need to lie to yourself. If you can articulate your core values and live them each day, you’ll notice that the feeling of fulfillment usually arrives as well.
