Life is a never-ending road full of ups and downs that present new challenges every single day.

B – Brainstorm your values

The initial step is to brainstorm all the values that are important to you. This is the primary step because it can be a challenging task to select and write down our core values, given the vast range of essential values such as kindness, empathy, integrity, generosity, gratitude, and many more. However, the process becomes much more manageable by breaking it down into smaller more manageable steps. Begin by brainstorming a list of all the things that are important to you.


A – Analyze your list

Once you have your complete list, start analyzing it, and try to identify the values that stand out to you the most. You might have a long list, but perhaps only a few values truly resonate with you. Circle or highlight these values and focus on them first.


C - Connect with your values

Upon identifying your core values, the next step is to connect with them. By connecting with your values, you will be able to develop a deeper understanding of how they apply to various aspects of your life. Ask yourself how you can apply these values to your life, such as your work, relationships, and personal growth. Ask yourself what it would look like if you were living by these values every day. The goal here is to be specific, so you know exactly what your values look like in your life.


O – Organize your values

Now that you have identified and connected with your core values, the next step is to prioritize and organize them. Which values are most important to you? Which values do you rely on when faced with tough decisions? There is no right or wrong answer. The key is to know your priorities. This can help you align with your values and make the best decisions that align with your beliefs.


N - Navigate with your values

Having identified, connected with, and prioritized your values, the final step is to navigate your life with them. Whenever you face a difficult decision, remind yourself of your values. Ask yourself which decision aligns with your values the most and let that guide your decision-making process. Whether navigating your career, personal life, or relationships, you can approach every situation with a clear perspective on how to live a values-based life.
