Core Values: The Compass To What You Need

When it comes to personal growth and self-development, there are a lot of concepts that people can learn about. One of these is core values.

A lot of people don't even know what their core values are, but they do have some idea of what they are looking for in life. They know that certain things are important to them and that other things aren't important at all.

However, core values are not just a list of things you like or dislike. They're much more than that. They're a set of principles that guide your life, helping you make decisions every day and acting as a filter. They affect how we spend our time, how we spend our money, how we spend our energy, how much effort we put into work and relationships alike. Often, when we feel stuck, it turns out that we have not been honouring our core values.

Knowing your core values can:

  • help with decision making – knowing your core values helps you recognize when something is not right for you, even if it looks like it would be good at first glance;

  • guide your actions – knowing what matters most helps focus your efforts towards those things rather than wasting energy on things that don’t really matter;

  • improve relationships – knowing what matters most helps you see where others’ priorities differ from yours and work out ways to align with each other when needed.

Coaching for core values is therefore a powerful way to help you clarify your values and align them with your actions. It can help you to understand how you make decisions and see that the choices you make are based on what matters most to you.

What are your core values?
