Maintaining Values Through Being Successful

“Is there a way to maintain my values while being succesful?”

Be clear whether you’re seeking only monetized success or growth potential along with a pay check.

If your only objective is to obtain material wealth, you don’t need anyone’s help with that. However, you my friend have asked a genuine question as you have expressed both honor and pragmatism.

Your Core Values Shape Who You Are

If you lose sight or trade your core values, you’re playing with fire my friend. Your beliefs and core values make up all of the intrinsic virtues of a good hearted person who can:

  • Succeed in life from a financial standpoint
  • Stay true to him/herself
  • Always remember where they came from

By being courageous enough to believe in who you are and what you are capable of doing, you will overcome any thought or external opinion other “successful” people will share with you. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best,

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else, is the greatest accomplishment

Be you, don’t allow other’s opinions of you shape your reality. That requires courage, it requires that you believe in what you’re doing is the right thing and that your values of being the right person and doing the right thing will triumph in the end.

That is my invitation to you friend, you can be both successful and who you are as long as you don’t succumb to the drudgery of others.

Keep growing stronger,
