I am a big believer in the importance of knowing your values and aligning your life in order to honor those values.
What are values? Quite simply, the principles by which you live your life: authenticity, courage, fun, relationships, personal growth, service or spirituality. Each person has a unique set of these principles that define you and tell you what is truly important to you. In effect, values are the essence of who you really are: i.e., the core to your authenticity.
