Your Personal Values List

Which of these characteristics do you possess that may help (or hurt) your chances of living a fulfilling life?

It may surprise you that there is no unique set of attributes that decides if you will be a success or a failure. In fact, that’s what makes your core values so great – they only belong to you!

The Values Factor: The Secret to Creating an Inspired and Fulfilling LifeBy choosing as many of the following personal values from this list that you feel you most resonate with, you’ll have a developed meaning of what defines you and how to get what you want out of life.

If you have trouble choosing, I highly recommend reading The Values Factor by Dr. John DeMartini.

Prioritize Your Personal Values

They are all important to you to have made it into your top 10. This will be a difficult step, but order them with the most important value at the top of the list, and the least important at the bottom. Dig deep and try to recall moments where you had to make this decision in the past.

Values For The Soul

Chances are that your top 3 personal values have specific memories attached with them. Use this to your advantage to relive similar moments by choosing a life that will allow this to happen.

For instance, if a top value is to be unique, don’t fall into a 9-5 job routine wearing a suit and tie like everyone else.

Instead, position yourself as an eccentric freelancer with the ability to make your own hours and enjoy not-so-common hobbies such as skijoring, noodling and bouldering.

What Defines You

As promised, feel free to download the Personal Values Worksheet. I’ve attached a bonus section in there!

Be sure to comment below with your unique personal values!
