Your actions are driven by your beliefs and values. People can influence you, but they should not be your primary drivers. Therefore, it is important for you to become clear about your values and make decisions that are consistent with your values.
Use the questions below to help you identify or clarify your values (e.g. God, love, family, faith, integrity, respect, good health, purpose, etc) and priorities. Then use the information below the questions to reinforce or affirm your daily decisions.
1. What are my priorities?
2. What are my values?
3. How can I resist the temptation to compromise my values?
There is a set of standards by which I abide with faithful loyalty. I am steadfast about my values because they are part of who I am.
• The values that I have chosen for myself reflect my beliefs about appropriate behavior. I have chosen these values for myself because they help me be the person I desire to be.
• I passionately abide by my convictions in order to remain true to myself. Being loyal to my values and myself keeps me from losing my way chasing after false dreams. I am resolute about finding and carrying out my purpose in life.
• Peer pressure is powerless against me. I am unshakable about my beliefs regardless of what others say. When I decide to complete a task, my steadfast attitude gets me through it.
• The way I carry myself is a direct reflection of my values. I continue to hold on to my values even through troubling circumstances where it would be much easier to compromise.
• I am loyal to my spouse, even when it may seem justifiable to stray, because I love my spouse and I am a faithful person.
• I speak truth at all times, even when a lie would benefit me, because I am honest and trustworthy.
• I give to others, even when keeping what I have for myself would help me build wealth, because I enjoy sharing my blessings with those who are not as fortunate.
• Today, I choose to stand on my values with a steadfast attitude even if those I love chose to compromise their own standards.
