What do you value?

Values make us as a person and define how we invest our time, energy and money. When our values are high, we can reach the limits of improving our personal lives. 


How we spend our time is profoundly shaped by our values. We decide each and every day what we want to do with our time. Time is essential, since it runs out quickly. For this reason, you want to invest time, spending your time wisely. 

The average person spends most of their day working. At the end of the day they return home to spend time watching television, or engaging in activities with the family. Saddly, family is becoming a thing of the past. If you want to improve your personal life, put your family first. Unfortunately, you only have five or six hours after a day of work to do this. You also want time for self. 

So what you need to do is to find time frame that works for everyone in the family. For instance, if you come home after work most of the time without spending time with your family, try practicing eating at the dinner table each night together. Do not allow room for excuses. As you eat together, take time to ask how each person's day went. This simple strategy has been proven to enhance relationships. When you enhance relationships, you are also building a new bridge to personal improvement. 



One of the biggest mistakes people make is hanging out with poor influences. If you hang out with the wrong people, you are wasting time. You need to build your values and improve your personal life by changing company. You want to hang around with positive influences. Let me draw you a picture. 

If you hang around at bars with your friends, in time you will face court costs, fines, and perhaps jail, especially if you visit the bars and drive home after drinking. You will learn new bad habits. Each bad habit you learn takes over your life, which only keeps you down. 

Finding new positive influences is a key to success. Anyone you hang around with who thinks positively will rub off on you, helping you to develop good habits. When you find friends that care about you, you will have friends that do not allow you to drink and drive. You will have friends that care about your future. 


To make new friends you have to learn communication skills. Don't be afraid to smile and say hi. There is nothing wrong with being friendly. 

When you learn to communicate, you are building the foundation that will lead you to a happier future. Failure to communicate is one of the leading reasons why businesses fail, relationships falter, and so on.

Communication comes in many forms. Sometimes when you sit and listen as well as pay attention to gestures or body languages you learn best. Observation is the ultimate key that helps you to gain successfully and learn to develop skills that lead you to improve your personal life. 

You have many options in the world. Take those options, use them to your advantage and you are on the road to improving your personal life.
