Why Do We Need to Anchor Our Values

Anchor Stock Photos - Image: 2061923As early as teenager, one must learn to anchor our own values.

As people age, we tend to be faced with different circumstances that can allow us to re-think about our beliefs.

However, if you have anchored your own values from the earliest time, you won’t be swayed easily. You’d be less vulnerable and gullible.

Your beliefs will be respected and you can also mark your name in your field or you would also be an inspiration to others.

If you have a firm stand in what you believe is right and wrong, it would be easier for you to decide on some matters about your life and as well as your relationship with other people.

However, there are certain things that can be “wrong” for you but aren’t to others. You have to respect what other people believe as well.

At the same time, you don’t have to like them too. Having your own stand is enough.

Anchoring your values doesn’t only mean about knowing what is right and wrong. It can also depict on how you act towards other people.

Do you respond with respect to others regardless of their social and economic status?

Anchoring your values is also about anchoring your own personality.

It’s like taking a picture. No matter how old you can be, the person in the photograph won’t age or change.

If you have decided what kind of person you want to be in the future, whether you become successful, powerful, rich, famous or just an ordinary person, your values will determine who you really are.

No matter how many trials will come into your life, you can easily get up and move on, because along the way, you are definitely sure that all you did was to do what is just and good according to your own values.


Try to imagine you are now a very rich and famous person. How do you want to become, with regards to your relationship with other people? What are the values you want to anchor that no matter how pressured you would become, you won’t be swayed by anyone else? At the same time,think of  how do you want to define yourself.
