12 Oct How to Use Core Values to Guide Behaviors
I took a massive pay cut to pursue my dreams of working in professional sports back in 2002.
Before making the jump I was working in sales: selling beer.
I had no passion for sales. And I had no passion for beer.
For a few days, I struggled with taking the leap.
I talked to my parents about it and this is was what they asked, “Where do you ultimately want to be?”
Really what they were asking was a value-based question. What was important to me?
From there it was an easy decision. I accepted the position.
I ultimately realized that it wasn’t a difficult decision at all. Because my values were already set.
Find & form your core values. And use those values to guide your life.
ACTION: Values should guide our behaviors. What’s important to you & how is that impacting your decisions? 👉 Comment on LinkedIn
