How To Live Values And Actualize Goals

Values are a direction in life but they aren't enough to make you happy. Those values need to be transformed into actions in the form of goals.

Video Description

Clarifying your values is necessary but tricky. It’s necessary because clarity is what helps you set your sights on what you exactly want and why. It’s tricky because happiness is what helps you know which values are meaningful. Sounds simple but it isn’t. Happiness is not the same thing as feeling satiated. We all often get those two confused and this is one trap that keeps us from real happiness. Often we go after satiation, feel good, but only temporarily. That type of happiness doesn’t get into our bones. Further, having clear values isn’t going to get you all the way to real happiness. It can’t remain an ideal. It has to be transformed into an action. By bringing your values to life as actionable goals you can transform yourself into a happier person.
