This is part 3 of my Design a Life You Love series! Check back to my last couple of blogs to read parts 1 and 2!

Put the chart aside and take a look at the ten categories listed on the Personal Inventory. These are essentially values: Health, Personal Growth, Fun, Money, Framily (friends & family), Career, Spirituality, Romance, Physical Environment and Self-Fulfillment.

There are more values than this, but for the sake of this exercise, we will focus on these ten. Pick the top five values that seem to fall into place when they are present in your life. Now rank them in order of what is most important to you to feel happy.

Designing a life you love should be based on your values. Once you have decided which values are most important to you, write them out. There is no right or wrong answer. All values have equal importance. When you live by your values, you feel calm and peaceful. If you are unhappy, you are not living according to your values. This becomes obvious when you take assessments.

Now you will need to cross reference your top five values with your Personal Inventory. How do your higher values rank on your Inventory? Are they in alignment?

This exercise is to raise your awareness. It tells you where to put your focus. Designing a life you love takes time to manifest. Use this process to guide you as you mindfully co-create a life that makes you smile.
