Plugging into your values

This week as we head into the holiday season I have decided to change tack slightly. Over the next few weeks I am going to share my thoughts with you about values and how these impact on our personal power.

In common with many of you I’m sure I have been reading about and hearing on TV stories about Nelson Mandella. His integrity and forgiveness have been an inspiration for the world and certainly for me.

So as I start reflecting on the values that are important to me I’m wondering what is important to you. How do you find your true North? Are you aligned with your values and what happens when we are not aligned?

I will be discussing this and more over the coming weeks. I’d really love to hear your thoughts too so do leave comments or email.

Next week I am going to start by talking about forgiveness, a value I have found particularly challenging in my life.

  1. Hi Melody. I have a habit of repeating myself too! ha ha Anyway I just want to comment on values. I am presently doing a coaching course for myself and I have been looking at values. It was not until I thought about them and wrote them down that I came to know what my true purpose is in life. I realise now that I love writing, reading and speaking. I am a qualified life coach and love coaching people, but am finding that the writing is what I enjoy most of all. I did it by writing out a whole list of my values, then sorted out the ones that had been thrust on me from life and as an infant, and came down to a list of the ones that I had worked out for myself. Most enlightening.I found that the values that had been thrust on me were the ones that I needed to forget. Thus I am now free to persue the values in life that I really do want. I could go on but………

    Some great insights Patricia, I’ve also had an email from someone else who found your comments helpful. Your thoughts remind me that it will be useful for me to give some definitions and context next week.

    Love hearing about your journey, keep sharing :0)

    Cheers
