Have you ever found yourself wondering why certain things in your life just don’t seem to fall into place, no matter how hard you try?
It’s a frustrating feeling.
Trust me, I know!
It’s like you’re pushing a boulder uphill, constantly fighting against an invisible force.
But what if I told you that there’s a way to get that boulder rolling in the right direction?
It’s all about understanding and leveraging your true core values.
This isn’t just another fluffy concept; it’s a practical, actionable approach that can change the way you see yourself and your business.
Let’s break it down.
#1.) Discovering Your TRUE Core Values…
Everything starts with knowing what really matters to you.
And I’m not talking about what society says should be important. Not even what your friends or family think, but what genuinely resonates with you.
Your core values are not just about moral principles like honesty or integrity; they’re about what you value most in life.
It could be family, career success, creativity, or even adventure.
They influence your reactions, where you devote energy, and even how you spend your money.
Surprisingly, many of us are not fully aware of our core values.
We might think we value something because we should, but is it genuinely driving our actions? That’s what we need to find out.
#2.) What’s Not Found Amongst Your Highest Values, Will Not Show Up in Your Life…
It’s a bold statement, but it’s true.
What’s not found amongst your highest values, will not show up in your life.
This means if you’re chasing goals or aspirations that don’t align with your core values, you’re setting yourself up for a struggle.
It’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
13 Questions to Get Clarity on Your Highest Values
To start this journey, you need to ask yourself some crucial questions. And not just any questions – ones that cut right to the heart of your daily life and deepest thoughts.
Write down 3 answers for each of these:
- How do you fill your space? – Your environment says a lot about what you value.
- How do you spend your time? – Time is a precious resource. How you use it reflects your priorities.
- How do you spend your energy? – Energy investment is a clear indicator of what matters to you.
- How do you spend your money? – Your spending habits can reveal a lot about your values.
- Where are you most organized? – Organization in certain areas can highlight what you value most.
- Where are you most reliable? – Reliability in specific aspects of your life can point to your core values.
- What dominates your thoughts? – What you frequently think about can be a significant value indicator.
- What do you visualize most? – Visualization is a powerful tool that aligns closely with your values.
- What do you most often talk to yourself about? – Your self-talk can reveal your underlying values.
- What do you most often talk to others about? – Conversation topics often circle back to your core values.
- What inspires you? – Inspiration is a pathway to understanding your values.
- What are your consistent long-term goals? – Goals are direct reflections of your values.
- What do you love to learn & read about? – Your interests and passions are aligned with your values.
#4.) Compile Your Most Repeated Answers & Rank Them.
After answering these questions, you’ll start to see patterns. Compile these repeated answers and rank them. This will give you a clear picture of your top values.
For example, my top four turned out to be Business, Social Life, Growth, and Physicality.
#5.) Your Assignment: Linking What You Want to Your Highest Values.
Now, here’s a powerful exercise.
Identify one thing you want to do, be, or have that did not make your list of core values. Then, link it to each of your highest values by writing down 50 ways to achieve that one thing that will serve you for each of your highest values.
For instance, “Money” did not make my list. I would then explore how making more money could serve me in areas like Business, Social Life, Growth, and Physicality.
By the end, you should have a total of 200 ways (or more, depending on your number of core values).
This exercise is not just about self-discovery; it’s about creating a roadmap that aligns your deepest values with your goals, ensuring that what you pursue in life and business resonates with your core being.
So, are you ready to start rolling that boulder downhill?
Take the time to go through these steps.
Reflect, write, and discover.
Let’s embark on this journey together, and watch how aligning with your TRUE core values can create remarkable results in your business and life. 🚀🌟
