What is your vision of yourself?

When they read your eulogy, what would you like them to say about you? To be the person you want to be, you must have a vision that guides you daily. The following exercise will help you set your vision.

There are natural principles that make up our physical environment. There are also principles that govern our personal development. Those principles impact our ability to produce results and our ability to achieve.

 Some of these principles include; Empowerment, Encouragement, Excellence, Fairness, Growth, Honesty, Dignity, Humility, Integrity, Patience, Potential, Quality, Service, Trustworthiness, … etc.

Pick four words that represent the principles you value or most closely align with your life. List them by importance, so #1 is your first choice, #2 is your second choice, etc.

Understanding Your Values

Values are different from principles. Values are the items most important to us. Principles are guidelines for conduct that have enduring permanent value. If our values don’t guide our principles, we may not be able to produce the results we seek in our lives.
