How to Identify Your Values to Set Your Goals in Life

identify your values

New Year, new goals we like to believe. But in order to achieve your goals, it’s important you identify your values. Only then can you set your goals. In doing so, the path to getting there will only get clearer.

A  new year always provides us a clean slate, an opportunity to start anew. Unfortunately, too many times do we get highly motivated, only to slowly drift away. How many times have you been amped up about your goals only to let them fade?

The truth is, you’re not the only one. In other words, many of us are right there with you. Studies show that 25% of those that try give up after just one week. Furthermore, 60% don’t even make it to 6 months. But what causes such determination to fade at such a rate? If I had to guess, maybe it’s the goals you’re setting?

Set the Proper Goals You Can Achieve

Setting proper goals is a process and starts when you can identify your values. Only then can you understand what your goals are and how you can achieve them. Anyone can have a vision, but it takes the right strategy to make it all happen.

We all have goals. Whether it be getting our dream job or buying our dream house. In other words, we want to achieve something in our lives. But in order to successfully do so, we must identify our values so that we start to get things in order. Unfortunately, it isn’t always clear, but once you know what it looks like, you’re a step closer to achieving your goals.

What are Your Values?

If you are not satisfied with the direction you’re life is in, your’re values aren’t in order. Too often do I have clients that live a life that goes against their BEING. To put it differently, they continue on living a distasteful life hoping for things to get better. No better display of insanity if you ask me.

If you’re not feeling the life you live, you’ve not started to live. If you’re reading this, there’s a great chance you’re still breathing. And if you’re still breathing, you might want to value your time enough to start living.

The best way to identify your values is by asking yourself what’s important to you. Are happy about your job? How about your relationship? As a matter of fact, are you even happy with your life as it stands?

What are the things that make a job ideal for you? What qualities in a partner do you believe will create an ideal relationship? The answers to these questions will be the driving force towards identifying these things. Those things are what identifies your values. Those are the things that determine what your priorities are and how things measure to what you want.

I constantly reassess my life to see how where I am in my life compliments my current values. Whether it be financially, emotionally, or financially.

Find my personal assessment below:

  • How am I currently feeling at this very moment?
  • What is preventing me from achieving my goals?
  • Have I identified my current values?
  • If so, how do they align with where I currently am?
  • Am I feeling the life that I am living?
  • If not, what is preventing me from doing so?
  • What must I do to get myself right back on track?

Once you know what’s important to you, you’ve been able to identify your values. And once you’ve identified your values, it’s easier to figure out your next move. The world is constantly telling you what it should be but only you truly know what it really is. Only you can determine that.

Life is work. Better yet, life is an adventure. Through it all, it’s important that we remain authentic and pure in the way that we maneuver through it. Nothing is worth getting at the expense of your values which in turn drive your goals. How else are you to achieve your goals in life if you continue to stand in your way? And once those goals are in place, the rest is history, your story.
