What do you believe in? What do you stand for? People often might have asked you this question. Many people reply to this by saying, I don’t know. Core values are something that will shape your identity. Keanu Reeves the Matrix fame actor, when someone asks you about him, what do you say? He is one of the kindest and most down to earth actors. Kindness is one of his core values.
Core values guide our behaviors, decisions, and action. The same way, just think about the fictitious character Sherlock Holmes. What do you think his core values are? If you answered it as “Smart” then you are right.
How do you find your core values?
I don’t think core values can be found. They are something that has to be discovered.
Every person must identify some of his personal values. This will help him in taking better decisions and actions.
If you want some time to think. You can simply download the core values list pdf and evaluate for yourself what values you identify yourself with.
Below I have listed the 100 Core values that i came across and can be used as a master list to discover your core values.
A list of 100 Core Values/ Personal Values
- Common sense
After the pandemic, I started to revaluate my life, what really matters to me. Then I started with a new habit of reading books. After reading some good amount of great content, I came to know about these core values.
I asked the same question to my self. What are my core values? I was unable to identify my self with one. This is when I started researching and came up with all the values listed above. None of the above values in the list is something that I came up with.
I googled for core values and read all the articles. After referring many articles this is the list of 100 core values that I came up for my self. So I used this list to try to discover my own core values.
Just use 3-5 core values. If you identify with many, none of them are of importance to you. You can also download the core values list from the top notification bar.
I hope you were able to find what you were looking for.
