Discovering your personal values - Deepstash

Discovering your personal values

  • A way to discover your personal values is to write a short personal essay about the values of the people you admire and how they align with your own values.
  • A second strategy is to pick six to eight values from a list such as adventure, bravery, compassion, creativity, family, freedom, gratitude, learning, love, etc.

In order to be useful, values must be lived. Many of us state values we wish we had as a way to cover up the values we really have.
