Thoughts on values

We all have values, but how many of us are deliberate about them? A value as a mantra can change our velocity seemingly overnight, especially when the value isn’t yet a personal strength. (Excellence, integrity, etc)

But how do we get there? How do we choose what’s important to us? The good thing is we don’t’ have to look far. We already know. It’s written on our hearts. The trick is bringing what’s important to the heart to the forefront of our mind on a daily basis. The best way to do this is keeping a journal. “Easy to say, hard to do” does not apply here. Journaling takes no more than a few minutes, and the payoff is compounding.

All wealth is created by compound interest: values, relationships, investing. (I lump journaling, writing, and speaking all in relationships. With this logic it is not far too do the same with personal training and investing)

Why values? Because living deliberately is living fully. It benefits us, our families, and our communities the most. That’s what I want, and that’s what you all want.

What are some of your values that might be underdeveloped? Do you have any unpopular values?
