Can I live a fulfilled life? I believe so when you look into our core values. What are they and why is this important? Let’s take a look.
So What Are Personal Core Values?
Core Values are the fundamental beliefs of a person. I believe these are like our guiding compass and can lead us on the right path to happiness. A quick google search will give you list and from there you can choose the ones that resonate with you the best. You will probably end up with a rather large list. Here are some that are important to me in no particular order:
- happiness and
- health are just a few
When I looked at my very long list and asked the question “What must I have in my life to experience fulfillment?” it was starting to make sense that what I valued the most and what I was making a priority were not in alignment.
What Do I Do Now!
From that large list, I narrowed it down to the five most important to me. I did this by grouping all values into common groups and then I picked the one from each group that resonated the best. Once I knew my top core values, I then looked at ways to incorporate these more into my day. Let’s take joy for example. This is an area that needed some more work for me. So then my question was, “How can I bring more joy into my life?”
I attended a course by Derek Rydall and he has a process called the L.I.F.T practice that stands for Living In The Feeling Tone.
The idea is to work on one of your core values, in my case it was joy, and work out what people, places, objects and actions activate these feeling qualities.
To cover all these areas, I went with the sun, the beach, being in nature, walking, playing with the kids, singing, friends, flowers, holidays, working on my business, doing meditations and using essential oils. These are all things that I enjoy doing and bring joy into my life.
Now what you do is to incorporate as many of these into your day each day to start living by your core values and living a life with meaning and purpose. The goal is to get into the feeling of (in this case) joy.
You go with this one value until it becomes a habit and then you work on another one. It is a great way to spend your day, in the feeling tone of one or more of your core values.
So Why Is It Important To Live By Our Core Values?
When we live life by our values, it helps us to make decisions that direct our life to where we want it to go. It makes us feel good and helps us stay focused on our goals.
Are you living by your core values. Doesn’t it make sense to start living by them if you are not already and working towards that life of your dreams?
