It’s important to have a support system with how much of a roller coaster life can be. A set of people that will always be in your corner cheering you on.
People who will pick you up when you fail, and cheer your name loud enough for everyone to hear when you succeed.
This set of people may be your family, friends, or if your religious, God.
These are the people that will always be by your side no matter the situation.
A strong support system like this can do wonders for you when you’re taking on the challenges of life.
I can personally say I have some amazing people in my corner.
Having friends and family giving a hand when you need it is always great, but there’s another support system that can change your life.
The people in your corner can help you on what to do in a situation, but it ultimately comes to what you decide to do. This is where a set of core values comes in.
The Importance of Core Values
To start, core values are the fundamental beliefs of a person or organization. These set of principles will guide behavior and can help someone choose the difference between right and wrong.
It’s a set of values that you can look back on when needed.
They will be there to direct you into staying on the course of your life.
When everything seems to be falling apart, this set of values will keep you moving forward.
For some examples and a description with them, here are my core values.
Accountability: 100% accountability for every action I take in my life.
Gratitude: Thankful for my family, friends, significant other, my life, and the opportunity to achieve my dreams.
Growth: Growing in every aspect of my life on a daily basis (Mental, physical, career, & relationship).
Vision: Always having a set goal in mind and a why for everything I do.
Greatness: Striving to be the best at what I do every single day.
Process-Oriented: Who I become and what I learn from each experience.
Adaptability: Being able to change with the trends and still be on top no matter what is going on.
Optimism: Always thinking on the bright side of every situation because it could be worse.
Understanding: Being in the other person’s shoes in every situation to better understand them and their perspective.
Trustworthy: I say something, I do it.
Having a set of friends or family is great, but we also need something that’s deep and personal.
If you have core values that are deep enough, there will be no situation that is bigger than your values.
Values will always overcome the situation.
Having a tight group of people in your corner and a set of deep core values will get you through this crazy ride of life.
It’s a one-two punch that won’t be beat.
Thanks and Be Great,
