Values - RAMMFIT

Values are important because they help guide you. They help you make decisions when it comes to how you should live and do your work, whether you're an employee or an employer, a sole trader or an entrepreneur.

.

It's vitally important as man that you identify what your values are and what drives you because it gives you a sense of identity. You know who you are and what you're willing to tolerate. When you discover what your values are, you begin to understand what is truly important to you. The best part about values is, they are your own. They're not what other people think your values should be, they are your own and make you unique. You don't have to go around bragging about the or letting everyone know what they are, they're more like a code of living.

When you say things like "this is my car" or "this is where I live", then my question to you is..... who are you when you say that? The truth is most people don't know who they are because they haven't got a set of values they are guided by, they don't have their own code of living. They let other people do the programming for them and when people do that, they begin to lose their sense of self. When you start to lose yourself because you let society define your values, that's when you become unhappy with you life and that's why people start blaming other people for their mistakes and failures. They've lost their way. They don't know who they are, they're easy to manipulate and fool. Sure, it's not a nice thing to be doing to another human being, but that's life. There are sharks and snakes on every corner and you better have a sense of self and you had better have your own code of living sorted, otherwise, it's over for you.

People in society have a hard time handling people who have their own code of living. When you know who you are and you draw a line in the sand, people call you difficult. That's not your problem, it's theirs. Your job is to hold the line and stand strong. It's hard at first, but the more you do it, the easier it becomes. The more you do it, the more you see your self worth and your self esteem starts building. You know why? You've just done something worthy of esteem. You've made a stand.

.

 Values are things like discipline, perseverance, compassion, commitment, ambition, decisiveness, boldness, justice, freedom, honesty, equality, excellence, courtesy, loyalty, respect.

My tip is to write down a list of ten, in no particular order. To do that you need to be comfortable being in solitude because you need to look deep inside. You need to really discover what values are important to you without distraction and without any outside influence. Once you have your top ten sorted, go through and really look at each one, comparing it to the others in your list. Sooner or later, without even trying, you will have your list put into order from what you value most to what you value least.

.

Look at the top three and you will see what is most important to you when it comes to your own values. Practice each day living those three values because I guarantee, there will be times in your day that you will have to. When you do that consistently, you have something a lot of people lack, especially in these interesting times.
