We live in a world where it’s easy to lose our path. Society often offers its own roads to happiness. Sailing through life without values is like taking to the ocean without a map, without a compass, and with a broken ships wheel. We are left to the mercy of the elements, the waves, the wind, so we will go wherever they take us. We can easily get lost in the vastness of the ocean without something to guide us because we have nothing to help us steer our ship and plot our course. We don’t have a destination, so we just float around. Even if we do have a destination, we can’t reach it – we can’t place it on the map we don’t have, we can’t head the right way without a compass, and we can’t steer the ship closer without a ships wheel. In short, going out to sea without a map, compass, or ships wheel is an aimless idea.
Going through life without values is not that great either. To get somewhere in life, you need to:
• know what you want and what matters to you; and
• know how you can align yourself to your values and be your authentic amazing best.
