What is the meaning of “core values”? The values are things that we believe are important to us, life’s navigators installed in our minds through early childhood. Usually, we feel like we are doing the right thing when we behave in coordination with our values and feel frustrated or even depressed when asked to behave opposite of what our values represent.
We all nurture many different values like love, money, success, stability, integrity… it’s different for each individual. But, most of the time, we are not even aware of what is important to us, or it is difficult for us to prioritize one value over the other. So we may always be bouncing back and forth finding it hard to choose between spending time with family or accepting job promotion.
Not knowing what our primary values are, makes it hard to choose. But when we make a list of our most important values by order and prioritize, decision making will become much easier. If spending time with family is important, my biggest value is love, and my job promotion will include overtime work, I will reject the offer.
