What matters most.
To be effective in life requires focus. To achieve focus a target is needed. Values are the target upon which we can focus our energies and outcomes.
Values are the thoughtful expression of desires and outcomes; what matters most. Aligning our values and beliefs gives us a pathway for action when working toward our purpose. When expressed, values become the building blocks of character:
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness (Integrity), Trustfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control.
