Are you on track (values)
What you will get: A review of your personal values alignment.
Are you on the right path?
Or have you strayed off?
And what’s more?
Do you even know it?
One of the definitions of your Personal Values is “those things that matter most you in life.”
Many people never get to find out what their values are.
And they wake up one day knowing they are unhappy and not even knowing why.
One of the 17 scales of my Limbic Performance System is called “Personal Values Alignment” and it explores the degree to which you feel your life is currently in line with those things that matter most to you – your personal values
Here’s 5 questions that will help you to reflect on that right now. You should answer them all “Agree” or “Disagree”. (These questions are adapted from my online Limbic Performance Indicator measurement tool):
I often compromise my true self and what is important to me
I seem to change the way I behave to fit the circumstances, at the expense of being true to myself
I am not consciously aware of what is really important to me and rarely stop and think about this.
I am not really aware of what my personal values are.
I don’t really regard myself as a principled person, with behaviour driven by my own ethics and morals
So if you agree with any of the above, maybe it’s time to review your path right now?
And from my experience…
People don’t usually leap off their values path all at once. Instead, they slowly stray off it, one tiny step at a time.
Until one day…
They wake up and realise they are lost and can’t even see the path they are meant to be on anymore.
Or as Stephen Covey describes it, many people climb up their ladder of goals but don’t find out until it’s too late that it’s leaning against the wrong wall.
“If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.”
So as we move into this New Year, and you set yourself goals, stop and think about the path you are on and make sure you don’t drift too far away from those things that matter most to you – your personal values.
I’m off to have a gentle walk along my values path and cherish every single step of the journey.
How about you?
