The Choices We Make - 938LIVE Radio Interview
by woon on 24 November, 2014 - 18:31
Today I had the privilege to be interviewed by Eugene Loh in his motivational programme A Slice of Life on 938LIVE radio station. I say privilege because Eugene himself has a high level of awareness and passionate about knowing his values and living by them.
My topic "The choices we make" centres around how our core values reflect what is important to us. We are motivated by our personal values and together with our beliefs, they are the causal factors that drive our decision-making.
Therefore, knowing your core values shed understanding to our decisions and enable us to make conscious choices to ultimately bring fulfilment in our lives. Going against your values may make you feel disconnected with yourself and cause negative emotions like regret and uncertainty.
The purpose of knowing what motivates you is really also about understanding humanity and what others hold dear. Therefore, sharing your values with your loved ones and people you work with gives them insight to who you are and enables deeper connection.

you know who you are and you know what you want.
