In Lewis Carroll's timeless Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice seeks advice from the Cheshire Cat on where she should go next:
“The Cheshire Cat: Where are you going?
Alice: Which way should I go?
The Cheshire Cat: That depends on where you are going.
Alice: I don’t know.
The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
Why do I need to know my Core Values?
Values give us our sense of purpose. When we align with our values on a daily basis, we have more energy and feel more fulfilled because we are leading from what’s important to us. When we don’t align with our values, we feel less authentic and become demotivated about our daily lives.
Think of it as a tree: values are our roots that keep us grounded in what’s important to us. The strength of the values determines the strength of the trunk, branches, leaves and fruit from year to year.
Many people think that values are ethics or morals; they’re not. Values are what is important to us, what we ‘value’, and what gives us purpose. Most people have approximately 5-7 core values that identify who they are at their core. Each person’s values are unique to that person; even if two people happen to pick the same value word, such as integrity, each person will demonstrate it differently in their daily actions and language.
If you don’t take control of your life, someone else will.
Personal values offer a form of focus because it becomes clear to you what’s important to YOU and no-one else. Because let’s face it – if we don’t know what’s important to us, how can we live a meaningful life?
The process of discovering your personal values involves not just discovering what you’re passionate about but also finding out what’s really important to you.
I have read a quote;
“Never let the things that matter to you the most, be at the mercy of those that do not.”
But the truth is, most people coast through life without any kind of consideration for what is truly important to them. This means that unfortunately for many, life is something that ‘just happens’ to them.
“It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.” ~ Roy Disney
