Magnificent V.A.L.U.E.: Virtuous intent, Above reproach, Lead by example, Uphold your word, Ethical principles
Value is important to everyone. Not the value that money can provide, but the value that comes from validation by others. Everyone feels they have value and most do. In this installment of the ABCs of encouragement with the #BloggiteBits Campaign, I am going to help turn your value into the Magnificent V.A.L.U.E. it can truly be: Virtuous intent, Above reproach, Lead by example, Uphold your word, & Ethical principles.
Virtuous intent: We make decisions with an intent each day. Have you ever thought about how your emotions dictate the result of the intent? To bring your value into the magnificent level, you should always have a virtuous intent behind all that you do. Be sure to treat people kindly and when you are going to do something, have a virtuous intent in your actions. People will look at you with honor and respect.
Above reproach: When you have dealings with others, be sure to always have actions that will be above reproach. Have magnificent value, you have to conduct yourself in such a way that you will always be above reproach when you are being scrutinized by others. Living a life above reproach and with respect to all, you will be thought of by others as a person with magnificent values.
Lead by example: People are very good at giving lip service to those they interact with, however, when it is time to follow up the lip service with action, most people are nowhere to be found. One way to be viewed as a person with magnificent values, lead by example. Say what you mean and mean what you say and make sure your actions support your words. Leading by example helps people know you are a person of worth.
Uphold your word: This one goes hand in hand with leading by example. If you say something and give your word to another, be sure to follow through with your promises. People in this day tend to be flippant about what they say or promise to others because they have the ‘me’ mentality that does not consider the feelings of others. Upholding your word will make people realize you are a person with magnificent values.
Ethical principles: A person’s value is usually dictated by their ethical principles. When you guide your decisions with sound ethical principles, others will take note. Using your ethical principles to guide you in life will help you achieve magnificent value in other’s eyes.
