When on the journey to unleash your full potential, you are often faced with choice. Do I take this job or that one? Do I start my own business? Do I stay in this relationship? Do I move to this new location?
Do you ever struggle to make decisions? To know what is right for you?
There is a way to make decision that are in alignment with who you truly are – easily. And it’s been there, right in front of you…or maybe actually within you.
Make decision in alignment with your values.
When you are clear on your values, they are like an anchor for you. Like roots of a tree, they keep you grounded and steady and alive and nourished. Without roots, a tree would fall over. Without your values, you will fall over.
How do you know if you are living in alignment with your values?
If you are feeling angry, resentful, or stepped on, chances are your values are not being upheld or you are letting them be stepped upon. In this case, it’s time to begin honoring your values and taking a stand for what is most meaningful to you in life.
You may feel out of sorts, lost, stuck, or without purpose. In this case, it may be that you are not clear on your values and are floating by, not having an anchor to make decisions from. Your decisions tend to be wishy washy sometimes hitting the mark, sometimes not.
When you are clear on your values, and you make decisions and take action in alignment with your values, you will feel nourished, invigorated, steady, and with a clear sense of purpose in your movement throughout life.
I’m guessing this is how you want to feel, right?
Before honoring and protecting your values, and making decision from them, you must first know what they are and then fully accept them as important to you.
So, what do you value? Write out all the options, then narrow it down to your top 3-5. Write them down and place them where you can see them daily, as you begin ton strengthen your connection to them by making choices in alignment with your guiding principles.
Make decision from your values and your life will change.
Because when you make decision from your values you are making choices from the deepest place within your spirit. And when you live from that place, you begin to unleash your potential.
Until next time…
