OUR LIFE IS DRIVEN by priorities and the secret to understanding our priorities lies in values. Values determine our boundaries – that means how far we will go on questionable issues. Such values are absolutely necessary. Knowing what matters – what we value – is key to living a life of meaning , purpose and happiness. Finding our own values that are important for us is worth the effort.
Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
–M. Scott Peck
Values, herewith, help us determine our daily decisions. They influence not only small decisions, but also big choices.
Dreary, that some people don’t take their values not too seriously. They handle important decisions without any strategy or background. They adapt their thinking and their imagination how they want, cannot explain the reasons for decisions and too often try to seek excuses.
And when problems come up, they seek like a mouse a hole.
If we can’t determine right from wrong, then we lack the right feeling for moral, not religion.
Pursuing a life of value can be costly. It comes with a price. It certainly is not easy following rigidly the own values. But when we have decided us really for a life with values, we can sit down and can relax. The days of lying, cheating or stealing are over. We from now on lead an honest life.
We all face the temptation to disregard our values from time to time, especially under pressure. We are human beings, that is only normal.
But, compromising your values will one day catch up with you.
Values make sense. They give you confidence. They are the map on the journey of self-discovery. Values help keep us on the right road.
