What Are Your Values?

It’s a question that many people ask themselves and often times, they don’t know the answer. This blog post will teach you how to identify what your personal values are so that you can live them out in life. Start by jotting down 20 words or phrases on a piece of paper and then circle five of them that resonate with you most. The five words or phrases circled should be ones that describe what is important to you as an individual.

Some examples of personal values include: family, freedom, security, health, and happiness. Once you have determined your five core values, aim to live a life that is in line with them. This means making decisions that reflect what matters most to you and avoiding things that go against your beliefs. It won’t be easy, but it’s worth it!

If you find that your values have changed over time, don’t worry. It’s normal for them to evolve as you grow and experience new things. The important thing is that you take the time to reflect on what’s important to you and make decisions based off of that. So, how did you do? Were you able to identify your five personal values? If not, no worries, keep reading for more tips.

One way to determine your values is to think about the things that make you happy. What are the activities or hobbies that bring you joy? When you’re doing something that makes you happy, it’s usually because it aligns with one of your values.

Identifying my values has been invaluable in my career and it can really influence your career development and help you to avoid many career traps. It can also help you pick the companies and industries that align with you as a person. One of the great things about Salesforce is that you can work from anywhere right from your own home if that is one of your values? What am I talking about I have a toddler and a baby at home I want to be out of the house as much as possible!! … not really 🙂

So here is my list of core values that may resonate with you. Find out more about values, strengths and the Salesforce ecosystem by signing up for my Free 5-Week Career Challenge.
