We are all different. What is important for you might not be important for me. We have different value systems and different priorities. We don’t prioritise our families and jobs in the same way. For this reason it’s crucial that you take time to get to know yourself and understand what your highest values are. Our values underline every aspect of our behaviour… You could say that the hierarchy of our values dictate our destiny. If you really want to know how to empower your life and do something extraordinary with it – find out what your highest values are. This will help you find your life purpose and fulfilment, it will help you find your motivation, inner strength and work towards your goals…Quite often in life we find out what we don’t want first, before we figure out what we do want. The best example of that is our relationships, our romantic relationships. Only by spending time with someone, you find out  what aspects of their behaviour irritate you and which aspects make you happy…

 

I have some female friends who are very fulfilled in their primary role of a family maker. I also know women who want to be a businesswoman first and mum second, and they are happiest at work. They would never swap the order of their priorities. So, it’s important that you try to get to know yourself and empower yourself to live your life according to yours (and not somebody else’s) values! This will help you improve your relationships, communicate more effectively or build a successful business, as you might have found that one of your highest values is wealth building… Or it could help you decide that you want to have a greater social impact and giving back to the community matters more to you than being rich.

 

Dr. John Demartini, a human behaviour expert, author and motivational speaker says ‘’It’s very important to fill your day with high priority actions so you don’t fill your day with low priority distractions” and ”the areas of your life where you’re not empowered – other people are going to overpower you…” This is almost a given. You might get distracted by their ideas of how you should live your life…

 

Only by knowing your highest values you are able to live your life freely, in an authentic way, and having the courage to focus on what you really love.

 

How do you feel about getting to know yourself better in 2022?
