Core Values helps you discover your own personal code of honor. This code guides you in your quest for a fulfilling and enjoyable life. Individuals who have not identified their core values run the risk of pursuing and attaining their dreams, only to find themselves disappointed. Adhering to our core values is essential if we are to set useful goals and make wise decisions.
CORE: the central or most essential part.
VALUES: the abstract concept of what is right and wrong.
SHOULDS: these are easily confused as values, and without investigation, could be misidentified as a value. There could be a strong stimulus to live this way, but it is not internal.
CONDITIONAL VALUES: these are values, but values that may be OK NOT to follow in some cases (Truth)
CORE VALUES: the central and most essential rules with which one must live; an essential determinant of one’s self-worth.
We also have a persona (the way you want the public to see you – your public face.) This is not necessarily tied to who you are. Your persona also has core values that can be in conflict with your “authentic” core values.
Core Values provided me with clarity on my core values. The course gave me the experience and knowledge that when I have my life in alignment with my values, it’s absolutely wonderful and exhilarating. I now also know what correction will bring me balance, peace of mind and joy! I strongly recommend this course to anyone really interested in an extraordinary life!

Thirty years ago U2 released I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For from their mega album The Joshua Tree. The song is a mix of existentialism and disappointment—one looks and looks and looks—but the search is fruitless. Does this sound familiar? Are you still looking for the right relationship, the right job title, that...Read More
Scientist, inventor, author, diplomat, wit-extraordinaire and Founding Father, Ben Franklin, had an underlying philosophy about life certainties. Among them are death, taxes, and moments when the proverbial crap hits the fan. Franklin wrote: “Men are subject to various inconveniences merely through lack of a small share of courage, which is a quality very necessary...Read More
Of all the relationships in our lives, friendships bear a unique role. Friends don’t carry the complications of lovers, the politics of family, or the formalities of colleagues and acquaintances. When dark times appear you ugly cry, snot, and spit, to friends that listen compassionately. Think of the times friends stood by you when...Read More
