Day 5: Envision Your Values in Action
It's never too late to change course.
If this is not the life you want, love yourself enough to try another path.
I am excited that yesterdays Day 4 exercise was the first step in creating a personal mission statement. Today we are taking it a step further and working on Part 2 of my mission statement. This is actually the next step is my Book- "5:Where will I be 5 years from today?" Killing two birds with one stone, I love it! Confirmation that I am moving in the right direction 🙂
It is time for some Action! What good is saying a thing and knowing a thing but doing the complete opposite? Its time to put an end to all this talking of goals, values and visions and put forth action to make it come to pass. How bad do you really want it? Prove it! So bad that you are willingly to press the issue?!
Today’s exercise involves two parts to help me dig deeper in thinking about how I
can incorporate my values into my daily life.
Part 1: What Do My Values Look Like in Action?
What kinds of things would you be doing if you were living in full accordance with your values? For each value that you identified in your “Reset 10,″ list out at least three actions that you would be taking if you were to honor and fulfill that value in your life.
UniquelyUncut Calls you to put your Values into Action. Faith without works is dead…so let us see your works!

Part 2: Am I Currently Living Out My Values?
Now that you’re clear on what you really care about, you want to compare your values
to how you’re currently living your life. For each value that you identified in your
“Reset 10″ rate yourself from 1-10 on how you feel you’re acting out that particular
value in your life.
