The Ultimate List of Core Values & How to Find Yours


Values Vs. Beliefs

People tend to intertwine the meaning of belief’s and values.  However, for me, they are two separate things.



Beliefs are the ’emotional connection’ to the stories we tell ourselves. (What we think.)

We tend to live our lives based on our belief’s.  Whether these beliefs are good or bad, most belief systems are developed through our life experiences and what we have been told as children. 

Most of the time, we are not even aware that these beliefs are being formed. We simply accept them as part of our identity and they tend to guide how we navigate life.

Until we take time to challenge belief’s that do us harm or keep us dis-empowered, most of our life will be ruled by the emotional connection we have to the thoughts we think. 



Values are the ‘emotional states’ that are important to us. (How we want to feel.)

Core values focus on the positive emotional states we want to feel.  Despite how we think, we can develop personal core values that can override a disempowering belief system.

It wasn’t until I identified the core values for my own life, that I started to make real progress towards the things I wanted to achieve.  My old belief system was unable override the intent of how I wanted to feel, (my core value/s) and I started experiencing life on a whole other level. 

Why Are Personal core values important?

Finding Life Purpose and Direction

People talk about ‘having a life purpose’ and for the most part – most people struggle to work out what that is!

Through my own journey, I’ve realised that ‘your life purpose’, usually finds you once you have established a set of core values that are important to you.

When you know your core values, 3 things start to happen in your life:

  • You’re clear about what is important and deserves your time and attention.
  • You have a defined direction for what and how you do things.
  • You make quick decisions which are aligned with your intentions. 

Core values make you focus on the ‘way you want to feel’.  They are the emotional states you want to identify with on a day to day basis and consciously make space in your life to experience them. 

I’m in no doubt that taking the time to understand and re-set my value system was one of the key elements to How I Changed My Life at 41 and finally took action towards my goals!
