Your vision is where you’re headed, but your values are what help get you there.
When you’re at a crossroads, if there’s a hard decision that you need to make, leaning into your values, knowing what is most important to you will help you decide. Whether you have an opportunity to take your business in a wonderful direction or if this opportunity is more of a distraction and taking you down a road where you don’t particularly want to wind up, your values will help guide you.
I recommend gaining clarity on three to five values, no more than five. There’s often a lot that might appeal to you, but they can usually go under three to five headers.
And once you have those, really look at how do you emulate those values in your life?
Where are they showing up?
Where were you stepping over them?
And where can you utilize them in creating the life that you want to live and the business that’s going to sustain that life?
I wrote a blog several months ago on values, and I’ll post it below. It has a whole list of values that you can choose from in different ways to gain clarity on them and to be able to implement them into your life.
So, I ask you, do you know your values?
And if you do, I’d love to know what they are if you’re willing to post below.
