What are your values?

Here, we are using the word ‘values’ to mean the qualities that define you, that are at the core of who you are. Your values are the things that matter most to you. Without these things, you would not be you.

Our values help us make choices about what we commit to in our lives. If you commit time and energy to something that violates or neglects one of your core values, you will most likely feel resentful and frustrated. If you do not honour your values in your activities and relationships, you will begin to get a nagging feeling that something is missing or wrong in your life.

While it is enormously helpful to know our core values, it’s not always easy to identify them.
Ask yourself these questions and then write down your answers, they don’t have to be a single word – they could be strings of words or sentences. Find the words that work for you.

  • What do you care about?
  • What do you want in your life?
  • When do you feel happiest?
  • What values are being honoured?
  • What drives you crazy makes you feel angry or frustrated?
  • What value is being violated?
  • What values are so much a part of you that you haven’t even considered putting it on the list? (Often these things are so much a part of who we are, that they become invisible to us.)
  • What are your top three values?
