A highly developed values system is like a compass. It serves as a guide to point you in the right direction when you are lost.
Like beliefs, in most cases, we don’t create our values… others do.
As we go through life, we essentially grow a personality. Our personality branches out in many directions to assist us organize our thoughts, feelings, values, ideas, and coping mechanisms. Our exhibited behavior – the way we organize and deal with life – becomes an external representation of our central self.
I believe in the ability to choose. I believe this life is made up of our choices and their consequences- the good and the bad. I do not believe in letting anything up to fate. We are the makers of our own destinies, our own futures, our own paths. To blindly follow is an insult to the miracle of being human. To be human is to make choices; the moment you allow others to make decisions for you is the moment you do an injustice to not only mankind but to yourself.
