Take stand for your own values
First of all, it takes us a lot of time to understand that what is our values? Simple meaning of value is that what is most important to us, more than anything else in the world. Our values can be inspired from anything, maybe family, friends, teachers, society, media, etc. Doesn’t matter, only do matter is, it must be true values.
Because we understand our values too late, so by then we would have given space to other things in life. And then it’s difficult to give time to our real values. We just keep thinking, now it’s too late and I have to follow the routine I am following already. It happens most of the time with all of us.
Change thought pattern
Now we need to change the way of thinking to achieve our real values. It’s not difficult at all. Do you remember your first job or internship? Wasn’t that also difficult for you at that time? And trust me, it is not difficult more than that.
Spent time with your values, it could be travel, sports, writing, photography, singing or anything. Invest your time in those things you value for. Not because to win but because to love. Maybe you’ll face challenges because many times family, friends, society do not accept these kind of actions. But if you want a different result, you have to follow different path or create a path.
It seems difficult because we do not want to leave our comfort zone. But we never think that what will be cost of “not taking an action”, and the cost will be “regret”.
I am not asking for “leave anything”. But take some time out for your own values.
Why to do this?
When you give energy to something, that something starts give energy to you, whether it is negative or positive, up to you. And that something could be anything, maybe family, friends, relationship, business, job, etc. and here we are talking about values. So now it’s time to receive positive energy from our values. But to receive you have to give more energy to it.
Spent quality time (1–2 hour a day) with your values. You can start related coaching if needed or maybe you can join related community or group so you can learn more about your values. Start with zero and surely you’ll reach somewhere 1–10 scale.
Many times we fight with the entire world for such things which are not even matter to us but we do not pay attention to the things which are actually matter to us.
