Exploring Your Values

Exploring Your Values

Have you ever avoided a project at home or at work because your “heart wasn’t in it”? Have you quit an exercise or weight loss program because you “couldn’t get energized”? Have you ever told yourself, “I know I need to make some career changes, but I can’t seem to find the time”? Why is it so easy to start with the best intentions but fail to see them through? A major reason may be that there is a disconnection between what you think you need to do and what you truly value.

When setting a goal, it’s crucial that you motivate both your mind (what you think you should do) and your heart (what you value). If you align both you’re more likely to set goals that are meaningful to you and that you are more likely to achieve. Too often people set goals based on their thinking alone. Their logical minds insist that the home repair project must be finished by the end of the month or that it takes working weekends to get that promotion. If you rely just on your logic as a guide to your goals, you limit yourself because your thinking can be influenced by the expectations, needs, and desires of others.
