What are your personal core values?

When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier.

-Roy E. Disney

How do we define our personal chore values? What even are values?

You might be asking why personal core values are so important?

Our personal core values are there to guide our behavior.

Without good concrete values, life can be a confusing rollercoaster.

Values are a part of us. They highlight what we stand for. They can represent our unique, individual essence and act as the primary driving force behind our actions and behaviours that provides us with a set of 'rules' to live by, alongside a personal code of conduct.

When we have them clear and get them right and we'll be quick and focused in our decision-making, with clear direction. Get them wrong or leave them ambiguous, and we'll constantly wonder how we got oursleves into such a disasterous mess.

Feeling frustrated or unfulfilled can often be a sign that our values might be being squashed, perhaps by parts of ourselves or by external situations or other people.

Simply put, I use my personal core values as decision guidelines that keep me true to myself, and out of trouble. Here are some personla core values you can choose from.

Choose only 10.

'If I could only satisfy one of these,which one would I choose?'

So, when making my decisions about anything in life small or big, important or unimportant, I take into account my chore values.

When we take into consideration our values in decision making, we can be certain to keep a sense of integrity and what we know is right, while being able to approach decisions with confidence and clarity. We'll also know that what we're currently doing is motivated by the progress that we want to make in life. It's not always easy to make value-based choices, but it will more than likely make life much easier in the long run.

Identifying and taking the time to understand our values is an important and challenging exercise. Our personal values are central to who we are – and who we want to become.

By becoming more aware of these important factors in our life, we can use them as a guide to make the best choice in any situation. Some of life's decisions are really about determining what we value most. When many options seem reasonable, it can be comforting and helpful to rely on our core values, using them as a strong guiding force to point you in the right direction.
