Becky and Diana discuss how identifying your values is the cornerstone to work and life success.

  • Values inhabit many areas of our lives, but stem from our Core Values.
  • The root of our Core Values remains constant, but through our experiences and new ways to talk about our values, the way we express them changes.
  • Life satisfaction directly correlates to whether we embrace or compromise our values.
  • Look to the “Why” behind the value to find the deeper core value.
  • When your values align with your goals you achieve greater success.
  • To assure your values match a potential employer, school, non-profit, investment or anywhere else you may invest time and/or money, make sure you research each opportunity.
  • Trust your gut. When something feels off, it probably is off. Not every opportunity is “your” opportunity.
  • Relationship values should complement each other, or conflict is created.
  • Knowing your values helps you identify others with similar values.
  • The people you surround yourself with either support you or sink you.

 The quote from Eleanor Roosevelt:

“To be mature you have to realize what you value most. It is extraordinary to discover that comparatively few people reach this level of maturity. They seem never to have paused to consider what has value for them. They spend great effort and sometimes make great sacrifices for values that, fundamentally, meet no real needs of their own.... Not to arrive at a clear understanding of one’s own values is a tragic waste. You have missed the whole point of what life is for.”
