Values guide our every decision and, therefore, our destiny. Those who know their values and live by them become the leaders of our society. They are exemplified by outstanding individuals through out our nation, from the board room to the classroom. For example, did you see the movie stand and deliver? it told the story of the maverick Math teacher Jaime Escalante.
Were you as inspired as I was by the heroic strides he made in the transmitting to his students his passion of learning? He got them to associate in their nervous systems, at the deepest level, a sense of pride in their capacity to master those things others were certain they could never learn. His example of commitment translated to these young people the power of values. They learnt from him discipline, confidence, the importance of the team, flexibility, and the power of absolute determination. Happyho also provide best Meditation classes in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
He did not talk to these kids in the barrio about what they should do with their lives, he was a living demonstration, a new definition of what was possible. He not only got them to pass a calculus placement test in numbers that every one thought were impossible, but he also got them to change their beliefs about who they were and what they were capable off if they constantly committed to holding themselves to a higher standard.
If you want the deepest level of life fulfilment, we can achieve it in only one way, and that is by doing what these two men have done: by deciding upon what we value most in life, what our highest values are, and then committing to live by them every single day. Unfortunately, this action is far too rare in today’s society. Too often, people have no clear idea of what is important to them. They waffle on any issue, the world is a mass of gray to them, they never take a stand for anything or anyone.
If you and I are not clear about whats most important in our lives – what we truly stand for – then how can we ever expect to lay the foundation for a sense of self esteem, much less have the capacity to make effective decision? if you have ever found yourself in a situation where you had a tough time making a decision about something, the reason is that you weren’t clear about what you value most within that situation. We must remember that all decisions making comes down to values clarification.
When you know what is most important to you, making a decision is quiet simple. Most people, though, are unclear about what is most important in their lives, and thus decision making becomes a form of internal torture. This is not true for those who have clearly defined the highest principles of their lives. They act as personal compass to guide them through a situation fraught with peril.
