The image we have of the world is directly linked to our values. Knowing better what you value makes it easier to understand what you are concerned with and would like to be concerned with in the world. It also helps you to get a better sense of your own value system and see if it really fits your deepest desires and your worldview.
- Ask participants what they want. Don’t they have a clue? Then have them choose from the attached bucket list. Make a list of these on the flip chart.
Most people want more than just money, in fact everyone does. (The answers to this question miraculously turn out to be the same for all ages.)
- On another flipchart, group the wishes into economic wealth (things with a price tag such as education, houses, jobs and surfboards, for example), social wealth (trust and relationships: things like best friends, moms and dads, peace, surfing and health), environmental wealth (oceans, mountains and trees) and spiritual wealth (compassion, love and service)
- The various forms of wealth weave together into a personal overall well-being. This gives a new awareness.
Discovering what we actually value most and adjusting the way you are in the world accordingly.
Participants become more aware of whether their actions fit their value system and worldview and begin to shift and transform these forces that shape their actions.
