Values as a path to happiness & fulfillment

  1. 1. Great Days Workshop: Part 3 - Values Suzanne Hazelton working with individuals and teams to THRIVE! © 2013 - Suzanne Hazelton © 2013 Suzanne Hazelton

  4. 4. "If you don't know where you're going, any road'll take you there“ ~ Alice in Wonderland
  5. 5. “If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” ~ Michael Jordan
  6. 6. For most people, figuring out our vision, is less like a flash of lightning. It often takes a bit more thought. I’ve found it to be an iterative process. A process of hewing and refinement.
  7. 7. It’s been said that most people spend more time planning their summer holidays than they do their life. Picture: Where’s Wally: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/news/wheres-the-brains-behind-wally-6261459.html

  10. 10. Our Greatest Fear It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.

  14. 14. • Find the 7 or 8 values which are the most important to you. Are values are the criteria by which we make (some) decisions. It can be useful to know what the underlying criteria behind your decisions are. • It’s also useful to know that sometimes values may clash – this can be a source of conflict. More information can be found in Chapter 4 of Great Days At Work
