Life is a paradigm shift from one plane of existence to another, our growth is a gradual progression of a life without knowledge of what surrounds us as a child with humble innocence to full grown adult with greater knowledge, sometimes we are fine and at times we suffer from one form of information overload to another, but one thing remains constant. our core values in life. The world would be in a state of random chaos if there are no basic core values of existence been upheld, so much so can our human life drift apart without a set of core value standing as a pillar of truth to guide us in our daily decisions. The difference between the Wiseman and the fool is as a result of their individual concept of life.
“In an ever changing world there are principles that should govern your life. they explain why you do the things you do, and what you stand for.they are not just cultural norms, religious doctrines or impositions, business strategies or response to market changes: they are non-negotiable that dictate how you live your life” —-culled from UCB word for today.
It takes a lot of courage and determination to live and work by a set of core values, as one who has been involved from one leadership position to another i can tell you having a set of core values makes life easier and less cumbersome, we all admire and love quality works, a set of accomplished goal, good standards of life and discipline and all these rely on core values to accomplish astonishing results. I was watching the parliament meeting in the house of commons on BBC 1 on Wednesday 4th of may and one of the rules been passed on is the issue of more sex education for females between the ages of 13 – 16 years of age as a result of high pregnancy rates and less support prior to pregnancy from the people they love , and the law been passed on that day was a strong emphasis on Abstinence as a core value to which sex education is to be championed.This not only prooves the importance of core values but the importance and how it can help you and i live a much better and fulfilled lifestyle.
Be doers of the word and not just hearers
What you truly believes in determines how you act and manifest yor action steps on a daily basis. According to John Macy, Author the enemy called Average, “It means making yourself valuable to someone today…tackling a problem bigger than yourself’”…’getting to know God by studying his word, helping someone who can’t repay you, not been afraid to ask for help, doing today what you want to put off tomorrow.. remembering that the time and place to be happy is here and now… taking small steps to conquer bad habit… and evaluating your actions not by the harvest they produce, but by the seeds you are sowing.’
As a man of principles nothing gives me greater joy than knowing i leave people a little better than the way I found them.Are you doing enough? if not how about taking a u-turn and making an impart in the world. remember the greatest legacy you could ever leave is not stone monuments nor names carved on streets, the greatest of all legacies is leaving monumental imprints in the heart of people stamped by time —– Louis Redemption
