What is the Value of Values?

value of values 300x199 What is the Value of Values?Values differ from one person to another, vary from culture to culture and are appreciated on different levels depending on the walks of life. For the most part, the values held by nomadic African tribes are not the same as an average American family. Those predominantly Christian countries hold some values very dear which other cultures relegate to lesser importance.
Sometimes our own beliefs held from childhood  are overridden by new set of learned or acquired morals or lifestyles. Thus, the values taught by parents and elders, or strictly adhered to by members of a community or group, are replaced. Here is a Sample Values List.
These new values, however, cannot be qualified as wrong even if they vary from the previously endeared standards. They still serve as ideals that measure the achievement of our purpose. It’s these values that become our driving force at living, and the constant reminders as to why we have pursuits.
So what, in your opinion, is Value of all Values? And why do you hold this particular value so dear?

  1. Nice post on values. When you ask most people what their core values are there is often a long pause because most people have not given them a lot of thought or identified what is truly most important to them. There is a free electronic exercise (like a card game) that can help people identify their top values and offers guidance on how to use them. It can be found at http://www.findfulfillflourish.com/findfulfillflourish/FindYourPurpose/GuidingValuesExercise/index.cfm

    1. Hi Steve,
      Thank you. I appreciate you leaving a comment especially about what people believe their values are and whether they even know what they are. Steve, I have to say that the people I interact with and coach… There is along pause when asked “What are your values?” Most people never even think about values or what means more to them and what makes us get up in the morning. I believe the card game on your blog is fantastic and I would love to recommend this to my clients and everyone who spends time on my blog. (Visit: Guiding Values Exercise) I spent 20 minutes reviewing and testing my response and answers. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I am glad someone has thought of this as some of us are visual learners (like me) and enjoy the clicking motion to see the answers. It makes you more aware of your values and allows creativity bloom online. 😉 I know you will endeavor and you have my support.

      Once again, thank you for the share as this will help others understand values and what they are and mean to each one of us.

      All the Best & Love Steve,
      xx Ezzy 🙂
