When I was a little girl, I used to visit my neighbour’s homes – sit on their couch, and listen to stories about their grandchildren, careers, and anything they wanted to talk about.
When I’d get home, my mom would ask where I was all day, and I’d tell her that I had a “trick” to make people happy.
In fact, I told her that I knew how to make people’s cheeks go rosy. How sweet, I know!
My trick was to ask people questions about things they loved, and this was a sure way to make them feel good.
Kind of an odd thing for a little girl to discover at such a young age, but I believe this was my purpose (or perhaps, my gift that I was born with) and that it’s my duty to be it.
What I’m speaking about, is honouring my value of connection, as it’s my most natural, authentic way of being, and I feel my best when I’m doing it.
Therefore, connection is my #1 value, and I try to align all my choices with it. Even my career, YUOLOGY!
When you have clear intention, and you align your choices with your values, you’ll feel good. It’s as simple as that. – tweet this!
I share this story to explain the huge benefit of knowing who you are, and what your values are, so you can make choices that’ll keep you on track.
And whenever you’re feeling off, you can always go back to your values, and reference how much you are/aren’t honouring them – and make a change!
Your assignment for this blog is to recall a story from your childhood:
- Think of a time when you felt alive, happy and excited (what were you doing, who were you with, why were you so happy).
- Journal about this moment in as much details as you can.
- Share your memory with a close friend or loved one, and pull out 3 personal values.
Now that you’ve explored a past memory where you felt good, I want you to think about how you’re honoring these values today? If you were to rank your values on a scale of 1-5, how are you doing? Share in the comments below, I’d love to hear.
If you feel like your values need a serious jolt back into your life – great! You can make new choices that align yourself with who you are, starting NOW >> Book your free Discovery Call with me.
