personal core values template

The personal core values template helps you uncover the meaning behind your decisions, actions, behavior, and preferences. Why do you do what you do? How easily can you ignore some things but cannot do the same with everything? Why is it challenging to work in a company even though the pay is good? Even after achieving your goals, why don’t you feel as happy as expected? All these questions become clear to you as you discover your true values.

Why Should You Know Your Values?

  • Your values give you a sense of purpose. You feel more connected to yourself, which in turn is highly motivating.
  • As you follow values, your integrity becomes rock solid which increases the trust of others in you.
  • Knowing the rationale behind your decisions helps you improve decision-making and clear your priorities.
  • It is your values that help you sail in the tough times without losing yourself. They give strength to get back.
