Discover Your Personal Values and find out What’s Important to YOU?

May 21, 2010 in Life

Discovering Your Very OWN Personal Set of Values

One way to get to know who you really are is to get in touch with your own set of values.  Your values are simply the things that are most important to you at the core. It’s the unwavering belief in what you stand for. When you know your values, you can live a happier life doing what’s most important to you.

Expanding Your Mind Through Visualizations

An effective method of identifying your values is to imagine your future. Take the time to reflect on different areas of your life. Where do you see yourself as you get older? What are the things that are most important to you? What do you hope to accomplish in life?  When are you the most happiest?  What are you doing when you are the most happiest?  What do you enjoy?

Answering these questions will help you discover your values. For instance, if you realize you are the most happiest when you are hanging out with your family, then a strong sense of family is one of your core values.

You can have many values in life; you just need to discover which ones are your highest priorities. That way, at the end of each day, you can feel confident that you’re nurturing the most important parts of your life.

Popular Values

There are certain values that most people feel are important. You might find that they’re significant to you too, as part of your core beliefs.

These values may help guide you in determining your own personal values:

1. Adventure. Are you a thrill-seeker? If things seem to get too stale, do you eventually feel bored? If so, you have adventure close to your heart and you’d be happiest with trying new experiences and new ways of doing everyday things.

2. Relationships. Valuing relationships includes finding all relationships important, in addition to your romantic ones. If you value loving relationships, it might be those with any family member or friend. This means that you hold your interactions with your loved ones to be one of the most important things in life.

* In order to foster this value, spend plenty of quality time and effort on strengthening your relationships.

3. Spirituality. If you align with a certain religion or spiritual practice, then the beliefs of that practice are likely dear to your heart. You may find greater fulfillment by spending your time studying and practicing your spiritual explorations.

4. Creativity. Creative thinking helps the world in many ways, but it’s not a core value for everyone. If you enjoy discovering and creating new things, perhaps it is one of your values. Try thinking outside the box while you’re doing things that you enjoy, such as poetry, music, or painting.

5. Making a contribution. Most people will say that, in the end, they just want others to warmly remember them. There are many ways that you can make your mark on the world, if that’s one of your core values. You can help others through volunteer work, you can create something new to help the world at large, or you can be a positive influence on others, and much more.

All you really need to do in order to discover your values is find what makes you truly happy. Then ask yourself why those things bring you joy. The answers will lead you to your core values.

If you feel like your life is just on automatic, you can figure it all out by thinking about your future. Are you helping your future self by walking down your current path? If the answer is no, perhaps it’s time to think about taking a new path based on your core values. When you do, that path will likely lead you to happiness!

Enjoy the Journey….Be Balanced, Deona
