Values are like a signpost when you need to make a decision in your life.
Values unite a husband and wife.
Values are a foundation to build your legacy on.
But which values?
Aren’t all values good?
You need to know your own, differentiating values, as a couple!
Ever feel like you’re missing the mark sometimes?
Do you complete the day and wonder if you’ve really communicated to your children, co-workers, fellow volunteers or employees what you truly wanted to communicate? Sometimes what we DO is more important than what we say. Does a feeling of dissatisfaction after-the-fact creep in? Have you ever completed an amazing project, or event, which to everyone else appears to be a success, yet you’re left feeling like you never really conveyed your message, and the effect you’ve had is false in some nebulous way? Here’s what might be happening… Maybe the values you’re living aren’t consistent in every case, with every group.
Values in Marriage
Now double this feeling of discomfort – in both spouses – husband and wife… What if you both – husband and wife – are leading lives with separate values at work, from those you use when you’re at home with each other? All of a sudden you have three sets of values which clash. Your behavior may be moral and ethical – but not consistent. How can you make sure those values you live – together – are consistent, cohesive, and have a lasting impact? Everywhere? And how can you be sure to leave a lasting, positive legacy as a couple? Use this eBook – guide and workbook.
What will values do for you?
If you’re wondering whether you should go right – or left – or go forward or back, then reviewing the situation with your own, differentiating values at hand can make the decision almost foolproof. Values help you prioritize – decide when and what to do in a situation, and then remain consistent in all your decisions. Knowing your own – shared – differentiating values as a couple, will set your marriage apart. Knowing your values will drive your behavior to map with what you truly value. Acting on your own, shared, differentiating values will create a positive legacy as a couple, making a difference for your own children, and for all those you influence.
