One of the first things my first coach ever did with me was help me identify my values. At the time, I was wondering why this was important and how it would serve me. I quickly came to understand that knowing my core values was crucial in understanding how I react to situations, events and even individuals.
When your core values have been clearly identified, it's much easier to know why you have been triggered by specific actions or things. Why is it t...hat there are times when something doesn't bother me and yet other times where I react very strongly to the same thing? It usually means that more than one of your values has been trampled on.
Knowing what is important to your soul, what is important at your very core will help you better interpret, understand and manage your reactions.
If you had to name your five core values, what would they be? How do you know this?
