11 Soul-Centered Values

"Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value." --
Albert Einstein


There are eleven primary values (or measures of success) that inspire us to keep going when the going gets rough and that motivate us to improve as individuals. 

Take a look at these values and pick 5 that are the most important to YOU (don't worry about what other people want for (or from) you). 

There are no right or wrong choices. This is simply a clarifying exercise (it's easier to attract what you want when you're real about what it is you REALLY want). 

Achievement 
  • Seeing the results of my efforts and intentions
  • Regularly setting and accomplish goals

Balance
  • Having more time for leisure/recreation/fun
  • Having great health and wellness

Challenge
  • Doing something others said couldn't be done
  • Solving challenging problems

Community
  • Helping those who can't help themselves
  • Making the world a better place to live

Creativity
  • Using and developing my creative talent
  • Contributing/Inventing new techniques and approaches

Independence
  • Being free from the constraints and limitations of others
  • Setting my own goals and schedule

Integrity
  • Being true to my personal values and morals
  • Living by clear principles and boundaries

Money
  • Having financial abundance and security
  • Having unlimited income potential

Power
  • Ability to influence others/Be an "agent of change"
  • Being a "mover & shaker" in my community and/or work

Recognition
  • Being respected by the people around me
  • Working with well-known organization/people

Relationships
  • Spending quality time with family and friends
  • Meeting and collaborating with new and interesting people

Now look at your top three values and decide if your current thoughts, feelings and actions are aligned with them. Maya Angelou has a great quote, "Success is loving life and daring to live it.


P.S. These values are also great starting points for selecting a niche for your business. If they're important to you-- it's likely that your ideal clients value them too!

Success is a journey....enjoy the ride!
