A little reminder on the importance of exploring, identifying and realising our values. This is a key focus in the work I do with clients and links to understanding our own 'WHY' and 'SO WHAT'. The recent 'Start with Why' workshop I attended has really brought this to the fore for me this week.
Values are fundamental beliefs that guide and drive your attitudes, actions and behaviours. Investing time to realise or remind yourself of your values is a core part of understanding why you want to achieve a goal, make a change or do something new. My core 3 values are
When I live by these I feel content, happy and authentic. When I don't or if someone challenges them it can feel very uncomfortable.
Take 15 minutes and write a list of your values (the things you live by that guide you and drive how behave). If you are not too sure where to start, get in touch and I can provide a prompt guide to help. Spending time on this will help you check-in with yourself to realise to what extent you are living by your values. It will also prompt you to consider if one or more are out of sync for you and the impact this may be having.
Do get in touch if you want to discuss this further.
