There are things in life that you know that you just must have. Like being respected or treated in an honest way. Like living in a beautiful environment that inspires you. Like having clients that you have synergy with and you enjoy working with them. What you already know must be serving you in many ways, yet there are things that are important to you but you have not (yet) devoted some time to bring them to the surface and claim them as your right. Maybe freedom and peace are one of them (or both).
The greatest benefit that I found in putting together a prioritized list of my values is that I experience more joy and fulfillment in my life and the magic that always almost happens is that I am attracting to myself more experiences and circumstances that are congruent with those values.
You can decide first if there is an area in your life where you'd like to get clarity of what your true values are, or you can do a general one.
Here are a few areas:
1. Your Personal Value List – In general what is important to you as a human being at this time.
2. Your Business/Career Values – To create this list thinks of relationships with people, processes, environment, time, money etc.
3. Relationship Values – What is important to you in intimate/family/friendship relationships? (You can even split this list depends on the area you'd like to become more clear about. What are the things you wish to bring or to receive? How do you want to be treated?
4. Health Values – Here you think of things like your vitality and energy, your state of mind and your relationship with your physical and emotional being. If you want to better your health or to upgrade it from where you are, this will be an excellent way to get more clarity. If your health is not where you want it to be then your values might not be in place.
Get your values in place first and start noticing
the shift and the choices that you make
based on putting this list together
And remember to enjoy doing it 🙂
When you have clarity about your values, whenever they are not met, you will most likely become so aware of it that it will enable you to communicate, confront address your needs and that will feel good. You will feel that you are honest with yourself, that you live your truth and therefore the result will be that you'll find more fulfillments in the endeavors you are engaged with.
One of the things that are on my values list is calmness and relaxation (that's away from being overwhelmed. I refuse to live in overwhelm). I believe that when we practice calmness and relaxation we contribute to our overall health. And being and staying healthy is something that is very important to me. I am not going to say "yes" to something that I believe will damage my health. Like getting a ride with someone that is smoking. Or eating a desert with sugar and carbs when I just had one recently.
Be your own coach, you can really do it yourself.
Here are the steps that will make it super-easy for you:
1. Schedule a time with yourself to do it.
I believe that everything that you want to do needs to be scheduled
or else it will have less chance to be done.
2. Decide how long you want to devote, 20, 30 minutes, and hour,
and you ask yourself what is important to you.
3. Make a list of values that are important to you. Choose between
20-25 or less. Don't go beyond that because then it would not be
clear. If everything is important than what is really important.
4. Prioritized the list. This is the part that will give you the clarity that
will start shifting things. You need to know what's on the top of your
list and what's on the bottom. That way when a situation presents
itself you'll know how to operate and what decision to make.
5. Complete the list, don't start and let it sit. You can do it in 20-30
minutes. No need for a long term project.
So are you ready to open your day-planner, palm pilot (or any other means for scheduling) and mark it down?
How soon do you want to become clear and avoid those pitfalls you are finding yourself falling into?
I'd love to hear your thoughts and even take a look at your list of values.
In a future post I will write about how you can choose values of someone that you like. Like Gandhi, or Martin Luther Kind or anyone else that you want to get results like they do and install their values in your mind so you can create similar or greater results that they have accomplished. So please feel free to RSS to my feed, so you can be notified when that post is up.
