Life Values Assessment

Ordered List of Values:

  1. Personal Development, 2. Family, 3. Integrity, 4. Enjoyment, 5. Health, 6. Personal accomplishment, 7. Friendship, 8. Loyalty, 9. Service, 10. Security, 11. Community, 12. Wisdom, 13. Independence, 14. Leadership, 15. Prestige, 16. Wealth, 17. Power, 18. Creativity, 19. Location, 20. Expertness

Although choosing only 5 values of importance to me that I incorporate into my life on a daily basis was difficult, I believe I chose accurately. My basic activities today included going to the gym, going to class, talking to my parents on the phone, and going to work. Health was my fifth priority on the list but it is very important in my life. Personally, I know that it would be impossible for me to live a happy of fulfilling life if I didn’t feel like I was taking care of my body and my mind. Your mind and body are what is getting you through this life, so you need to take special care of it. I make a point of going to the gym very often because it keeps me in shape and it helps me to handle the stresses of everyday life.

Enjoyment was fourth on my list. Life can’t always be fun and games, but there is no point in living if you aren’t enjoying yourself in the process. Although I do many different activities for my own enjoyment, surprisingly my work is one of them. I work at a daycare center and have a blast doing it. Working with kids is one of my favorite things in the world and brings me happiness. Integrity is third on my list and doesn’t necessarily go along with any one of my activities, but I strive for integrity in everything I do. I am honest in school in that I do not cheat, I stand up for my beliefs when I see something I don’t agree with happening at work or with my friends, and I always try to be moral about the things I am doing.

Family is second on my list because they are so important to me. I am extremely close to my mom and dad and make sure that I call both of them every day, even if it is just to say a quick hello. Being away from them and my home is hard, but calling makes me feel close to them. Personal development is number one on my list because I think that life is all about learning, growing, and bettering ones’ self. Going to class fits into this category. Although it is not the most fun thing sometimes, I do enjoy learning new things and using what I learn to help me grow as a person. I want to challenge myself because I want to be the best possible me that I can be.

I believe that although these beliefs are my own, I have been strongly influenced by my parents, because they want me to reach my full potential and live a happy and fulfilling life. There are many goals that I still wish to achieve, and creating new goals often is part of my personal development. There are always things that stand in my way, but as long as I work my hardest and integrate my value system into my everyday life, I believe that I can accomplish every single one of them.
