Aligning with Your Core Values to Live Your Best Life

Happy Sunday to you.

In a recent episode of the Know Like Trust Podcast, Betti Russo and I had a conversation with Author and Empowerment Coach Debra Trappen about core values. Debra explained, “Core values are the guiding principles that dictate behavior.”

She said when we align with our core values,

  1. We make more confident decisions.

  2. We attract like-minded people into our world.

  3. We live life with greater integrity.

  4. We experience more joy and happiness.

Core values are the guiding principles that dictate behavior. Debra Trappen

The last year’s events have made me realize how important it is to live each day with purpose and intention, and at the risk of sounding cliché, there’s no promise of tomorrow. All we have is this moment. Why not focus on the things that align with what’s truly important and let the rest go?

Are you interested in defining your core values? Debra has a great core values exercise. You can find it here.

Plus, here are 7 things that inspired me this week:

  1. I love these weekly affirmations.

  2. I’ve been meditating with this lady. She’s incredibly soothing and calming.

  3. Need a photographer? This man is so talented.

  4. I’m inspired to never return to this.

  5. Are you sharing your ideas or keeping them to yourself?

  6. Leave it to Jane Fonda. Love her.

  7. Look who’s in my hometown ballpark!
