Life Instructions~~~Values~~~Susie Austin

“Open your arms to change,

but don’t let go of your values.”

 Dalai Lama

Life Instructions~~ Values 

Values are personal beliefs we hold dear to us, such as caring for and relationships with others. Personal values are not universal they are just what it says, personal. 

 What do you think your top values are, and why? They could be achievement, work ethic, spiritual beliefs’, public service, self respect, wealth, family, friendships, the list can go on but I suggest thinking about what your top values would be.

  To make our values conscious, we can try to answer some basic questions. What are the most important things in life? What are we ready to sacrifice for? What price are we willing to pay? What would we give our life for? Would you sacrifice values for change?

This is a problem I believe we all have been with faced with this at one time or another.  I believe change is essential to growth and is necessary in life, but there needs to be a healthy balance and we must never let go of values.

Awareness is the key element here as we must never lose site of our values and sacrifice our core beliefs for change.
