How well do you know what you care about? Discover your values…
A number of years ago, my guest stumbled on a concept when he was helping a man suffering with a life-limiting condition. This made it impossible for him to do many enjoyable things with his son like fishing. It brought up a deep sadness, because he really wanted to teach his son. This is what he valued as a Dad.
At the time, they didn’t know they were talking about values. They called it the essential ingredients of what they wanted from life. Only later did they discover that connecting with values or life purpose was a hugely beneficial process that reduced human suffering.
In this episode, we get deep. We get deep into the process of identifying and trying out values. Values are the very essence of who you want to be and how you want to be in life. They are the quality of actions in your choices.
If you’ve ever wondered how to figure out just what you care about most of all, then listen to this episode.
My guest today is Dr Ray Owen. He has written two books, the most recent being Living With The Enemy. This book teaches you how to cope “…with the stress of chronic illness using CBT, mindfulness and acceptance.
Ray has also kindly sent you a worksheet, which you can use to help you identify your own values.
