The great thing about good parents is that they usually end up being right. I remember having my reasons why I knew better than my mum and dad…Sometimes I still do. Nevertheless I have tasted humble pie and realised that there was one thing that if I had listened to when they first told me how important it is, I would have saved myself a lot of trouble. That thing is the importance of values.
Now more than ever we live in deception. How hard is it to know who people are and what they believe? Celebrity culture, obsessions with trends and staying in the loop has a lot of people clutching at straws and chasing after the wind. It seems daily I am having to fight to stay true to myself and what I believe is right. Ever felt like that?
The great thing is that there is a way to stay grounded. Values. Do you know what you stand for? Do you have core beliefs? What are your standards? If you do not know the answers to any of the above maybe it is time to do some soul searching.
Who are you?
