Introduction

My Values A value is "the moral principles and beliefs or accepted standards of a person or social group." We face tough decisions everyday. As a person, student and employee I encounter several circumstances each day which test my patience, my character and my values. For me, my values are important because they guide me and shape my priorities and reactions. They serve as my markers to tell me if my life is heading in the right direction and if it is out turning out the way I want it to. With firm values, you can accomplish more in life, and in your career. When our actions and words are aligned with our values, life is generally good and we feel content, confident and satisfied. We can make decisions that would otherwise be difficult, and we can handle situations easier. ...read more.

These values are just important today as they were 100 years ago, even 1000 years ago! Even though values are important, most people in my generation haven't developed proper values yet.

I believe that some of my values include: honesty, integrity, patience, love, vision, gratitude, appreciation, caring, commitment, and what I think is the most important value of all, respect. Because if you have respect for yourself, your elders, and your peers, you will be honest, you will have integrity, and you will be patient. That value is what I think my generation is missing. In past generations most people had respect for their elders and themselves because if they didn't, they would get in big trouble. ...read more.

Conclusion

This is a good way for employers to differentiate between applicants who have similar capabilities and to single out those who are likely to enjoy working for them. Having firm values can prove beneficent to your career. With firm values, you can accomplish more in life, and in your career. If you know your values you can make decisions regarding anything and by adhering to your values you can handle situations and become successful. We get our values from our parents, religion, and society. I think that because most people from my generation get their values from our society and the media which is disrespectful and unruly. In past generations the media's influence was light compared to it's strong influence now. As you hold firm values that coincide with your company's you can succeed and rise to the top, no matter what career you choose. Understanding your values will improve nearly everything about who you are, what you do, and how you do it. ...read more.
