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 actor. Kindness is one of his core values.
Core values guide our behaviors, decisions, and action. In 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.
Core values are something that define our character. Many of the story tellers. Use the core values as one of the indicators to define a character in the story. But the core values are not limited to fictional character.
Core values help us define our own character. Are you a adventurous person? Creative person? or just a lazy person. Yes, lazy is one of the core values but something that we should not strive for.
But how do you find your core values? The core values are visible through human behavior and habits. If you are always up for any event and always enthusiastic about things then enthusiasm is one of your core values.
But we can develop core values as well. I have jotted down some around 100 core values list that you can quickly go through and use in your day-to-day life.

- Common sense
After the pandemic, I started to reevaluate my life, what really matters to me. Then I started with a new habit of reading books. After reading a good amount of great content, I came to know about these core values.
I asked the same question to myself. What are my core values? I was unable to identify myself 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 to many articles this is the list of 100 core values that I came up with for myself. 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 and use it for finding your own core values.
Habits are an important part of developing a core value. Recently I read the book Atomic habits and it has completely changed my view about looking into a problem. And I have adapted the habit of reading books to increase my knowledge.
I hope you were able to find what you were looking for.
