As a leader you have a responsibility to be self-reflective and self-aware. Unless you know who you are and where you’re going, the demands of your daily life will control you.
If you want to take more control of your life,
you must voice your values.
If you want to do more of what is really meaningful to you,
voice your values.
If you want to define what your purpose is,
voice your values.
Deep within each of us is a bedrock of values that we stand for. The voice of your values gives the echoes to your thoughts.
Your values as a leader set the boundaries for the decisions you will make every day.
Your values will serve as a guide for your actions.
Your values will provide a moral compass for the journey you are embarking on.
Your values are empowering and encouraging.
Your values are motivating and meaningful.
When you can truly identify your values, you can find fulfillment – Not just fulfillment for the moment, but a transformation and a transcendence that lasts a lifetime.
Lead From Within: We all can find the greater meaning to our existence and the fulfillment we hunger for, but it starts by giving voice to your values. It is living in the consistency of the echos of this voice that will bring you happiness.
