The Heroes Exercise Identifying Your Values by Working Out Who You Admire By Rob Archer [email_address]
OK, let’s get him out of the way... Most people say they admire Nelson Mandela. I do too. (I even met him once). If you were going to say you admire him (but even if you weren’t), make a list of the qualities that you most admire about him.
Who Are Your Heroes? <ul><li>Who do you admire in life? </li></ul><ul><li>Start by thinking about people who have played a direct role in your life - members of your family, relatives, friends, teachers, coaches, people you've worked with or team mates. </li></ul><ul><li>Now think about people who’ve inspired you indirectly – perhaps authors, artists, celebrities or even fictional figures (in movies, books or comic books). </li></ul>
Who Would You Like To Be? Just think about that for a moment. Pick someone who has a job and life that you really admire. Just one person. Then, pick out the qualities that you admire about that person (note, NOT their circumstances, but their qualities).
