VALUES


Values are those things that really matter to each of us ... the ideas and beliefs we hold as special, not something you want or would like to have.
Caring for others, for example, is a value; so is the freedom to express our opinions.

A value is a principle desirable to you. Values are personal. They are your convictions, your beliefs, and your ethics rolled into one.

Living in agreement with one's values is fulfilling. Living in conflict with one's values is stressful and dissatisfying. That's why it is so important to clearly understand your own personal code of values; your happiness depends upon not only knowing your values, but living in accordance with them.

Be Stress Free

Stress does not result from hard work, long hours, or multiple roles in life. Stress results from values conflicts. When put in a situation where you are unable to honor a value, you will feel stressed out. No amount of relaxation, meditation, or exercise will eliminate the stress until the values conflict is resolved.

Living Your Purpose
Why is it important to understand your own personal values? Values are linked to purpose in life. You might say that your purpose is to live your values. When you do, life is good.

There are many things that we aspire to do, but, for some reason they remain quite difficult. It is better to have the right intention and be aware of how difficult they are.

*Be Non Judgemental
*Practise what we Preach (it is easy to say what we should do, but, it is another thing to do it!)
*Listen (Everyone wants to talk, but, how many have time to listen?)
*Be Cheerful under all Circumstances (Life gives us ups and downs, whether we like it or not. There is nothing we can do about our circumstances. Sometimes fate gives us challenging circumstances. Becoming miserable does not help, it only makes the situation more difficult)
*Do One Thing at a Time (Simplicity and focus is a great virtue)


Live passionately... what else have you got to do!
