~ It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are ~
This is the real reason we find out what our core values are, they make decision making effortless and we know we are going in the right direction.
Values are a major motivating force for people because they categorise how people attach meaning, worth and importance to things. When a person’s values are matched, they feel complete and satisfied. If values are not met, there is a sense of dissatisfaction, unease or incongruity. This is something to bear in mind during persuasion and negotiation.
A person’s values will determine how they perceive any particular situation. Someone who values ‘safety’ will approach a situation checking for safety versus danger. A person who values ‘excitement’ will have a different perspective on the same situation and will be expecting to have different kinds of experiences.
So you understand how personal values and decision making drive each other. The values determine the outcomes we set and our decisions are made to achieve them. The decision making is organised to ensure the personal values are matched.
So get into your happy place, visualise your goal, really feel how it feels to have arrived there and see if that sits comfortably with you, are there people around you, what qualities can you pick up etc. Write down everything that surrounds your goal. For example they could include, honesty, health, marriage, freedom or respect etc. These are then your core values that will drive you towards your goal. We will make a sentence using these values that you can use on a daily basis keeping you on track for your goal. If you are struggling with these don’t despair I have something for you tomorrow……………………..
