When thinking of what to give someone this year, try to give to their core values. It’s easy to give socks, sweaters, and DVDs but a value based gift could bring them much more joy. Core values are what motivates us to behave the way we do. With my clients I motivate them to keep pushing for their ultimate life by reminding them of their values when doubts creep in over the long haul. When we are offended by someone, it is generally because they have countered one of our values and that is why we feel offended. By living by our values it brings us happiness and happiness is the end goal when buying for someone special.
When going over your gift list, think about each person’s core values. Values like Freedom, Creativity, Leadership, Family, Fun, and Adventure are all core values that you can buy gifts to satisfy. You’ll be giving a gift that creates true happiness by giving to core values.
Have the best holiday season you can,
