Do you know your personal value?

10 07 2009

Personal values aren’t the same as ‘values’- values have more to do with how you relate to your environment, according to this Ann Naylor of The Huffington Post.

Instead, if you asked yourself: What does positive attitude or positive state of mind mean to me?, you would have your personal philosophy. Being honest or wanting to give back to the community falls under personal values.

And personal value is the term Naylor uses for inner strength: “your innate essence or the human spirit that sustains you throughout your life. [It] has more to do with who you are than how you act or behave.”

Developing your inner strength has many benefits. It helps you accomplish your goals and objectives and assists you in being motivated and creative.

The following can help you build your inner strength:

  1. Take time to look within.
  2. Affirm your qualities.
  3. Make agreements you know you can keep.
  4. Learn to say ‘no’.
  5. Accept, appreciate and love yourself through difficulties.
  6. Be forgiving.
  7. Prize yourself.
  8. Do what gives you happiness.
  9. Focus on the positive.
  10. Relax and be patient.
  11. Be open for the best.
  12. Say thank you to life.

And remember, What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. (Plutarch)
