Clarify Your Core Values

One way to view life is that it's simply a series of decisions everyday. Of course, life is more than that. However, we do make decisions constantly. And some days we make big decisions and other days our decisions seem insignificant. Either way, we are doing it all the time. 

The question is, what drives many of our decisions? 

Whether we know it or not, I believe many of our decisions are driven by what we value. And each of us value many different things. Even so, I think each of us has roughly 5 values that seem to be core and truly drives most of our decisions in life. 

Knowing our core values is crucial. It gives us greater direction in life. It helps us own who we are in a more powerful way. It helps us makes decisions with greater confidence. We become more true to who we are. 

Imagine if our teens knew their core values and begin operating more fully (and in healthy ways) out of those values. In today's podcast, I discuss values further and how to clarify your core values. Enjoy!
