Are You Spending Time On Things That Matter To You?

Values are the things that are most important to you.

I know people whose lives revolve around their friends. Their #1 priority is their friends.

I know people whose lives revolve around exercise. They spend an enormous amount of time every week exercising.

I know people whose lives revolve around the pursuit of their dreams and their goals. In fact, I know 177 of them – my Rich Habits self-made millionaires.

You values determine how you spend your time. And how you spend your time, shapes the circumstances of your life.

If you are happy with your life, then your values are good. If you are unhappy, then you’re spending time on the wrong things. Or, put another way, you’re spending time on things that, deep down, are unimportant to you.

Happiness is value-driven. When you are doing things that are truly important to you, happiness follows. When you are doing things that are not important to you, unhappiness follows.

If you are unhappy with your life, you must focus your actions and behaviors on the things that are most important to you. Those things that are most important to you, are your values.

In order to determine your values, however, you must have a come to Jesus meeting with yourself. You must be honest with yourself in order to unearth what’s important to you. To define your values, ask yourself this one question – what matters most to me?.

Once you define what’s most important to you, you will then know where you should be spending your time.

When you act in accordance with your values, happiness follows. So, your values are your own personally constructed guidance system, leading you to a life of health, wealth and happiness.
