It’s important to take time to identify the core values and beliefs that help to drive your behavior and thoughts. Often dissatisfaction with life or a difficulty in decision-making comes from either not being clear about your values or not living by them. Sometimes this is because people are unsure about their beliefs or haven’t delved deeply enough into who they are. Others may be living with inherited values-from guardians or peers-that either never did or no longer belong to them.

What would you see, hear, and feel? What’s so good about it? What would it give you?
What do you have/want to have that’s important to you?
What do you want to do?
Who do you want to be?
To help get you started, here are a few examples or core values:
