A Moral Home Base

The importance of morals and values as they relate to your life and Life Coaching.
Every aspect of the game revolved around winning. As a child, I always loved to play the game of “tag” or “freeze tag.” I can remember many times when my friends and I would chase each other and run around our back yard attempting to see who was the fastest runner. With each game, we would designate some tree or rock or some other object that would be designated as “home base.” It was important to know where the home base was located because if you reached home base, you couldn’t be tagged or “frozen.” Every game started at home base. Every person attempting to avoid being tagged searched for home base. Every person that eventually reached home base felt a sense of reliefound home base.
Over the years, I have learned that it is important to develop and understand my own values and beliefs. In essence, my values and beliefs become my moral “home base.” What I believe and value control every action I take. Decisions that I make that affect me and others in my life all eventually prove to be an offshoot of my core beliefs and values. Without a moral value home base, I find myself wondering around life as if I were playing freeze tag all those years ago, only there was no home base in the game————I simply ran and ran with no direction hoping someone doesn’t tag me.
As you evaluate your life and your particular situation, it helps to look at your core values and beliefs. What are those values and beliefs? Do you even know? If not, it may explain why you might be drifting in life. If you are confident in your values and beliefs, most likely you are consistent in your actions and decisions.
