Values in Concept versus Values in Action

Values in Concept versus Values in Action

Powered by RedCircle

So, you’ve taken the time to define what your personal values are. Amazing! Knowing your personal values is an important step in helping you align your life and your decision-making in the direction that is right for you.

But, let me ask you this: when you look at your actual behavior, the decisions you’re making, the way you’re spending your time, does it reflect those values? Are your values important to you in CONCEPT or in ACTION?

Today, we’re talking about the topic of personal values from a different lens. From the lens of ACTION. It’s one thing to say a value is important to you in a conceptual way. However, if your behavior, actions, and decision-making don’t follow, you’ll still experience the same level of cognitive dissonance and incongruence. In today’s episode, I urge you to take action on your values. To define what they truly mean to you and to begin setting boundaries, making decisions, and saying no when things don’t align. To behave in congruence.

It’s hard, but it’s so worth it!
