What motivates your actions? Have you ever sat down to really consider your values (whether personal or professional)? Better yet, have you given any deep thought to whether your actions actually align with the values you claim to hold?
Personally, I’ve worked out my values — both personal and professional — but I am still working on ensuring that my actions match up with those values.
Regardless, here are the five (5) values my business is built around:
1 / FREEDOM
No limits! Freedom to be yourself, and freedom to run your business in the way that works best for you. I believe that everyone should be free to do what they love and to love what they do. And I also believe that we don’t have to do things the way everyone else says we should — we’re free to choose our own path!
2 / SIMPLICITY
“Keep it simple!” This is the mantra my business bestie and I often repeat to each other, especially when one of us is overthinking or over-complicating things! If you really think about it, there are truly only a handful of things that will lead you to “success” (whatever that looks like for you). Everything else is just “extra”, or the method that worked best for someone else. Figure out the basics — and the rest will take care of itself.
3 / FAITH
Trust the process. Release the outcomes. Believe that, if you keep at it and work for what you want, you will eventually see the end result you were looking for. So often, when I’m stressing out, it’s because I’m trying to control the outcomes (things which aren’t in my control & never will be). And God has to gently remind me that my job is to take action and His job is providing the outcomes!
4 / SELF-AWARENESS
I have come to believe, through practising this in my own life, that knowing oneself really is the key to making all of life better, more enjoyable. When you know who you are and why you do what you do, you can make more aligned choices. Want to learn how to do this? Click here!
5 / CURIOSITY
Never stop exploring and learning! Because once you do, you stop growing and then you stagnate. And that is a pretty dark place to be [I’ve been there!] Instead, be constantly on the look-out for ways to learn, to expand, to increase your knowledge, & to improve your skills. You’ll walk away with a rich & fulfilling life full of adventure!
Now, tell me…
Do any of these resonate with you? Which one(s) stood out the most?
Yes, I can absolutely get behind these values. Freedom and continuous improvement are two of my key values.
I’m so glad we connect on these!
