It’s so important to stay true to your values because are values are a reflection of what we have going on inside our minds and our hearts.

If someone lies to you most likely they lie to themselves.

I heard a quote the other day that I have been repeating to myself daily.

I might of wrote on this already but it’s that important so I’ll write about it again.

The quote went like this:

“How you do anything is how you do everything”- Unkown

Or something like that.

The way I interpreted that was, the way I show up for myself is the same way I show up for others.

I immediately started to self evaluate.

How was I showing up for myself?

It’s easy to criticize when you aren’t where you want to be.

It’s hard to reflect with empathy.

I chose to do the latter.

Based on my values, I am able to make difficult decisions and even more difficult conversations.

I’m grateful for the ability to reflect like this because it wasn’t always the case.

Choosing to live within your values is how you create confidence, discipline, and consistency. It helps turn you into the person you need to be to accomplish your goals.

Today, while at the library, I was asked to move while I was having a conversation on the phone with a client. Since I value making people feel heard and welcomed I moved to another place in the library. When I got back the woman was so grateful for me honoring her request that she took the time to tell me that. She followed by saying that my mom did a very good job in raising me. This brought a huge smile to my face and filled my heart with joy. She also made it a point to mention that she was surprised that I honored her request because so many young men nowadays would of brushed her off and continued to disrupt her.

In summery, stay true to your values and let go of ego, pride, and fear so that you can show up fully and be present in the moment, confidently knowing that you are being who you think you are.

Thank you for reading 👊
