Values and Beliefs

While discovering your purpose you uncover what you truly value and believe. For me, understanding these two things was actually the first thing I did. There is no particular order you need to start with. However, if I started with a blank page. My purpose would be at the top. Because that is your WHY. What you value and believe in is your HOW. It is how you go about each day to fulfill your purpose in this world.

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” – Viktor Frankel

No matter what you do, it is important that you write your values and beliefs down. Every day I review mine. And you will be amazed how you start to view the world differently, make better choices, and start doing instead of talking.

My Core Values:

Learn every day

Focus on the end result

Day One mindset

I believe that a beginners mind there are many possibilities, and an expert’s mind there are few

I believe failure empowers me, what stands in the way becomes the way

I believe that I control three things: how I perceive things, and my attitude, what I DO, and the effort I give
