As a leadership coach, one of my key areas of focus is helping my clients tap into their inner wisdom and live in alignment with what’s most important to them. I’ve found that when we’re clearly aware of our top values, we have the motivation, drive, and feeling of fulfillment to achieve all that we desire. And that’s why I work with my clients to help them define and prioritise their top values.
Values are an essential part of our lives. They shape the way we think, feel, and behave. When we know our top values, it’s easy to make decisions, change habits, and find the time and energy to do those things that are most important.
However, it’s essential to note that values can be fairly abstract to define. For instance, if trust is a value for someone, it may mean something different to someone else who holds trust as an essential value. For one person trust may mean that someone close to you ‘has your back’. For someone else it means that people are honest and true to their word. For others, it means they can feel safe to open up and share what’s going on for them.
Living aligned with our top values is crucial, as not doing so can make things seem hard and exhausting. It’s as if everything’s an effort and we feel a sense of inner dissonance. Our energy is low, we tend to procrastinate. But the good news is that we can always get back on track by identifying and prioritising our values.
One of my top life values is freedom. Now I’m sure many of you share this value… but what does freedom mean to you? For me, freedom means the freedom to choose, to have a feeling of freedom, to speak my mind, to be curious and learn what I want to know, to travel, and do the things that make me feel happy and at peace. It’s a sense of wonder and amazement and it’s as if I’m flying like a bird, or floating in water, or comfortable and warm and feeling the air on my skin. When I feel free, I feel excited and energised to take action. To be in the best possible state I can be to live my life and make a meaningful difference in the world.
In conclusion, I encourage you to take some time to identify your top values and prioritize them. Living aligned with your values will bring you joy, fulfilment, and a sense of purpose. And if you would like any help or guidance, reach out to me!
