Episode 11 |What do you value?

We have all had those experiences where we make a choice that creates internal conflict. We stay late at work to finish a project and we miss a night ou t with our friends. Or maybe we eat that bag of potato chips and skip going to the gym. What's going on? Why is it so hard to live out what we say is important to us?

This week we explore our values. 

How do you know what your values are?

What happens when they are competing? Competing values can create cognitive dissonance and that creates stress. 

What happens when your values change and it impacts relationships?

We had a lot of aha's personally recording this episode and we both have actions we want to take individually and together to clarify values in our lives and work.  

We suggest you start by determining your values. We share ideas on how you can do that near the end of the episode.

And spend some time reflecting on this quote: 

Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.”
