This week, we wrote about why you need to know your core values. Here are some insights from others about this topic.

Surprising Superpowers of Knowing Your Core Values “Core values—such as “social justice,” “financial security,” “self-respect,” and “compassion”—are the foundation of a moral life, guiding you toward decisions that harmonize with worthwhile personal and social goals. Some describe these values-driven actions with the evocative phrase, “living your truth.” It is not surprising that defining your core values helps strengthen your conscience so that you are more likely to act in accordance with an ethical code of conduct.”

The Importance of Core Values (And How They Bring Meaning to Your Life) “You might be working a high-paying job but feel like you’re not spending your time meaningfully. Or leading a great team, but in a company you’re not proud to work for. Maybe you’re stuck in a relationship with someone who just isn’t quite right. On the surface, it might look like you’re living a life of fulfillment, but something is off. This isn’t unusual, and you’re not alone. Many of my clients come to me with these exact feelings. Although they should feel satisfied in their life, they somehow don’t.”

5 Reasons Why Personal Core Values are Important “As the saying goes, “If we don’t stand for something, we’ll fall for anything.” We all have a set of core values that are personal to us. They serve as guardrails that surround the framework of our lives and keep us from going too far away from those personal beliefs with the decisions we make. Moreover, having personal core values is essential to help us make intelligent choices that work in our favor. They are supported by our wants, needs, and strengths. “
