Do you know what it is that is truly important to you? Have you decided on the areas in which you will not compromise? Do you know what you stand for? Can you articulate your personal core values?
An organization I greatly respect is the US Army. Many of their core values I have adopted (especially as I was a part of the Army for many years!). Read the following values and see what they spark within you.
Loyalty -Bearing true faith and allegiance is a matter of believing in and devoting yourself to something or someone.
Duty – Fulfill your obligations.
Respect – Treat people as they should be treated.
Selfless Service -Put the welfare of the nation, the Army and your subordinates before your own.
Honor – Live up to Army values.
Integrity – Do what is right, legally and morally.
Personal Courage – Face fear, danger or adversity.
A good list to contemplate. Click here to read the full definition or explanation of the Army’s core values as I only listed a summary sentence for each above.
So, what are the things that you hold to be core to your life? What are the things on which you will stand and not waver?
Hope you have a great week.
