Core values: Free life coaching tool is to help you work out what you want and need in life. To do this you must first identify your values, thats where the tool works. Values are powerful motivators. We all live by some sort of values eg: security, challenge, honesty, integrity, respect, freedom. Our values represent how we have to learn to think things ought to be and people be brave and should behave.

Values are important to identify in any self development work because in order to achieve success and satisfaction our values must fit the direction of our lives and congruently in our behavoir.

Knowing your values= freedom because when you can stop wasting time on things that don’t mean much to you, you can spend time on things you really care about.

Please follow the instructions of the values checklist and complete the worksheet to identify your core values.

In the table bellow is a list of values using the table answer the questions, you can add values I’ve not included in the far left column.

STEP 1. What do I value most? Tick the five things you value most of all. These are a guide of how you live your life, you can also add to the list if there is something not covered here.

STEP 2. Now that you have five values try to narrow it down to three. Go back through the list and see which ones you can eliminate and which ones are really important to you. Write your values here.
