"Have you considered how your values may be affecting your ability to reach your goals? Often times when you are struggling or finding roadblocks towards reaching your goals, one or more of your values are in conflict or not being honored. You may also find that a goal you have is not in alignment with your values. If this is the case, perhaps the goal needs to be changed or made more true to what is meaningful to you.
Take a moment to review your personal values. List any values you currently consider important to who you are and then list any ways these values are not being honored by others or in conflict with what you are currently trying to do. While goals and achieving them are something to look forward to … values bring richness to your life and make achieving your goals more meaningful. Bring your goals and values back into alignment and you will once again see satisfying progress." Sherre DeMao
