What are your values?
Updated: Dec 14, 2020
This period of lock down has forced so many of us into our own thoughts. If you cant go outside - look inside.
The universe and mother nature sending us all to our rooms for a while to think about what we have done, as a nation as a society, to reflect, to ask questions, to reconsider our lives and our purpose. It will forever change the way that we work, in many case creating new and more efficient ways of working, but how long will it change our consciousness?
Many people have been forced to question their working life, and even the whole meaning of their lives, many will come out of this period without a job or a business even. Relationships have bloomed and broken down, livelihoods have been lost and many people are being forced to start over.
Asking ourselves what our values are can really help us to identify what we stand for, who we want to be and what type of life we want to lead. However old we are, I remember asking myself this question full of teenage angst - I mean who knows what they want to do when they are 15? and as the famous song lyrics from Bas Lurhmann's 90's hit song said:
"Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life.
The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives
Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't"
Stripping it back and asking yourself what your values are can give you incredible insight. Values are not goals - a goal is something you are working towards with an end, a value is the reason you are doing it.
Coaching can help you to consider and talk through your values in order to help you to discover what you really want to do with your life.
