Good morning Honeys,
How is your morning going so far?
Yesterday we covered choosing your goals. Today we will be focusing on your Core Values. With our lives turned upside down and so many uncertainties, it can be hard to stick to your budget, much less find your core values. Values are your compass in the life that guides your core values does you where you want to me. When neglected, you will find yourself feeling lost and unambitious. You'll pick a career or relationships that don't align with your passions.
Eventually, you will come to realize that your life isn't going where you want it too. So how do you align your Core Values with your current life?
What do you truly want
There should be no compromise regarding your values, even if you have to turn down opportunities. Your Core Values are like the paint quality you choose to use to paint your future life. Any paint would do the job, but the best quality will give you the best results.
It's one thing to want to find a great job that pays you a lot of money. But what would your hours be? Would you have time for family? How much vacation time would you like to have? Are you happy waking up in the morning to go into work?
Before I found my current job, I used to drive into the parking lot at work playing Whitney Houston 'I’m Every Woman'. It was my motivation song to be able to enter the building since I hated my job. I would take a deep breath, plaster a smile on my face, and got to work. Every moment at that job was unpleasant since it didn’t align with my core values.
What does your dream life look like dreams? Do you have a marvelous relationship? Are you making truckloads of money? Your core value should be the foundation of all your success. It will be your compass when you lose your way in life.
I don’t want to give you too many examples since these are very personal decisions. If you’re currently in a relationship, create your core values with your partner and see if they are in alignment.
Let me share some of my core values, which are financial security and being there for my son. As I've said before, I hated my job because I was always working late and missing time with my son. Also, the fact that I wasn’t living in a safe neighborhood at the time, didn't help. Hence, I sacrificed my values of being there for my son in the short term, to ultimately create a bitter life that aligned better with my core values. I went back to school so that I would qualify for a better paying more flexible career.
So what are your core values? Take the time to find out before the world starts up again. Eliminate anything in your current life that is not in alignment with your values. Stop battling with yourself. If something doesn't feel right to you, it should not be in your life. We only have a limited amount of time on this earth, we might as well be happy within ourselves.
Tomorrow we will cover timelines.
TTYL and by the way…Have a great day
