What Do Values Have to Do with Success?

Everything! Success comes to us easily if we know what makes us happy, what we VALUE, and what we stand for in life.

A person who has integrity knows what they value.  If we live life based on our values, we have integrity. We don't make mistakes as often as those who don’t know what they truly value.  Long term happiness comes from knowing what you value- what you STAND for in your business and your life.

"Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values." Dalai Lama

I'm helping an advisor reposition his practice in the market place. In essence you could say that he is reinventing himself.  After many years of experience, a great many lessons learned, and a dose of luck his practice has grown to provide a decent living but not the kind of fulfillment you might expect.  The advisor wasn't attracting the type clients that are a joy to for him to work with.  After working on his Mission Statement and Practice Values, he was able to draw to him just the kind of clients that are joyful and profitable.

Values are like a COMPASS – drawing to you what you want

Business success comes from running your business based on your values. Your passion comes out in the way you manage your business.  If you'd like to attract more ideal clients, read this "How to Article" about how you can create a Mission Statement based on your values.  The article has a long list of sample values and my own Mission Statement.

Grow Your Business and Prosper!
