If your definition of success is horrific, then working harder, setting and achieving goals, and disciplining your mind all becomes a bad thing. You cannot talk about self-improvement without also defining your values that accompany it.

Values are the fundamental component of our psychological make-up and our identity.
We are defined by what we choose to find important in our lives. We are defined by our prioritizations. If money matters more than anything, then that will come to define who we are.
Your values are extensions of yourselves. They are what define you.
Many state the values they wish they had as a way to cover up the values they actually have. Instead of facing who they really are, they lose themselves in who they wish to become.
Good values are:
Bad values are:
Dwelling in regret and despair over the past mistakes and failures isn’t productive.
Use the same energy to realize and move forward with your dreams. Use your limited brain cycles wisely. Forgive yourself.
Personal values are the things that are important to us, the characteristics and behaviours that motivate us and guide our decisions. For example honesty or kindness.
Values matter because you’re likely to feel better if you’re living according to your values and to feel worse if you don’t. This applies both to day-to-day decisions and to larger life choices.
Values are a part of us. They highlight what we stand for. Values guide our behavior, providing us with a personal code of conduct.
When we honor our personal core values consistently, we experience fulfillment.
