Values Challenge for Individuals
Values are the things that are important to us, the foundation of our lives. They are deeply held principles that guide our choices and behaviours and influence our emotions. Values are the core of who we are. They are our motivators, our drivers, the passion in our hearts and the reason why we do the things we do.
World Values Day is an opportunity for us to think about our most deeply held values and to act on them. If we are aware of our values and put them into action each and every day, we can change our lives and change the world we live in.
Choose a value that’s most important for you, the one that motivates you through life, guides you through big issues and difficult choices, describes who you really are. See the Values Guide for Individuals for top tips on how to do this.
Act on the value: Values are powerful when acted on! Do something NOW that brings your value passionately to life – something challenging, creative, fun. Decide that acting on your values is now part of your life. Do your bit to change the world. Use the Values Guide for ideas to get you started.
Share what you’ve done across the world with #worldvaluesday or send it to us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or by email. Take a selfie holding the template you can download below, showing what you value. Send a photo or a video clip, write a haiku, record a song – whatever works best for you.
Pass it on: Nominate at least one other person – family, friend or colleague – to do the same! Challenge them to choose their own important value, act on it, share it, and then pass the challenge on again to their friends. Let’s change the world together!
