Living your values

The following is a free guide for hosting a single Mastermind session. For more information on Masterminds, please start here. If you’d like to join an upcoming Mastermind, please sign up here.

Date: August 20, 2020

Theme: Living your values

Prompt: What are your explicit and implicit values and how can you live them on a daily basis?


Pre-work: Please take some time to reflect on the following:

  1. Success: Think of a value that you explicitly identified as important to you and then successfully integrated into your life
  2. Failure: Think about a value that you explicitly identified as important to you but have been unable to integrate into your life in a meaningful way
  3. Implied: Reflect on the values that you implicitly hold and the way they inform your behavior

For your successes, why and how were you able to embody them? Why not for your failures? And for the values that are implied, how do you feel about them now that you’ve brought them into your consciousness?

Facilitation questions

  • What are some of things that you value?
  • What are some implicit values that you realized? How does that make you feel?
  • In terms of living your values:
    • What are examples of successes?
      • What was a time that you realized something you value, made an effort to live that value, and were ultimately able to do?
      • Why were you able to succeed?
    • What are examples of failures? Why did you fail?
  • What did you think about the approaches to habit formation and commitment devices?
  • What might you commit to doing in the future and how would you ensure that it happens?
