What Do You Value Most?
Excerpt from book:
Values are the things that matter most to us, while Security, Status and Patriotism may be highly important to you Freedom, Adventure and Money may be more important to another. This is why you often have friends say to you, “I found a better job,” Better than what? Better in pay or in status and security? or, “I am moving to France for a better life,” What’s a better life? Better in what sense? or, “Why are you with her, you can find someone much better,” Better looking? From a better family? More educated? Part of what determines that which is “better” for us or not is our values and of course, our personal desires and our past experiences.
We already have our values, they are intrinsically built into us like an internal compass, so the shortest way to discovering what they are, is by looking at our major decisions in the past. Another way of doing this is to look at a list of prescribed or common values. I have listed a few of the more common ones below for you to have a look at.
If the ones you are looking for are not there, please just add them. Also the more extensive your vocabulary is, the more specific you can get with your value list, but the aim is not to be verbose but rather to pick the top ones that truly matter to you.
Look at the list of values below and pick ten that are most important to you and circle them. Once you have done this, reduce that to five, and then to three. Three top values are all you need to help you navigate through your life together with your desires, your personal declaration and your intuition.
I found that I was able to group many of my values under one main value, and in that way I was able to feel complete with my top three. To me, Family, Friendship, Spirituality and Compassion all fell comfortably under Love. And Success, Abundance, Luxury fell under Freedom. And Adventure, Pleasure, Variety fell under Fun.
Once you have your list of 10, 5 and 3, keep them safely. You will be able to see how your life has always already been guided by these values. Choosing three does not mean that the others are not important, however, having three top values will make it so much easier for you to navigate.
