“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.”

Values are what is important to us and will provide us with toward motivation. So even when we do something that we don’t enjoy, at some level it is important to us or we wouldn’t give it a second thought.
Every complex system whether it be machinery, a computer, or a human system has to be congruent, it has to match and work together to be in harmony. Every action has to support every other action if it is to work at a peak level. If the parts of the machine try to go in two different directions at once the machine will eventually go out of sync and could eventually break down. Human beings are the same. As human beings we can learn to produce the most effective behaviours but if those behaviours don’t support our deepest needs and desires, if they infringe upon other things that are important to us then we can end up having internal conflict and lack congruency or the congruency necessary for success on a large scale.
For example: I use to be a massage therapist (with no aura reading involved), people loved my work and enjoyed the massage they received. However, inside I knew it wasn’t what I loved to do and one of my highly valued criteria is that it is important to me to live a life of career satisfaction. And so even though I was great at what I did I was only satisfied to a degree and after a bit of time would find it boring and laborious and yet what else was important to me was that I made money to support my family and so time and time again I returned to what I knew I did well and earned fairly good money with so I could support my family. Inside these two values conflicted. The result, feeling unsatisfied and unfulfilled, in physical pain due to over worked hands, only making enough to survive to support my family. Do you think my experience would ever change of massage?
Giving some thought about what you put value on gives you clarity about why you do what you do. It creates forward propulsion and increased energy toward your personal goals when values are aligned. It strengthens your vision and creates acceptance or greater understanding of different choices and behaviours.
This exercise is about getting clear about who you are and what you want.
