When A Core Value Becomes Toxic… by WJ Vincent II
What Do We Do When A Core Value Becomes Toxic?
Anyone that has been listening to the podcast, or attending Dr. Jay’s trainings knows how important our Core Values are to a successful business and life. But what happens when one of the things we have established as a core value to how we want to live, becomes toxic?
How Can A Core Value Become Toxic In The First Place
So this is where things get a bit tricky. The best way to explain this, would be to use an example from my own personal life. When I was in my early 20’s I started a business that allowed me to travel all over the United States of America, and to temporarily retire. Having witnessed the “grind” that so many of my older relatives were stuck in, I decided early on that one of my “Core Values” was freedom to do what I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it, how I wanted to do it, and with whoever I wanted to do it with. I quickly realized retirement wasn’t yet for me, and got back to work building my business, but I concentrated on that freedom. Mixed in with this “Core Value” were some powerful visuals that I was taught by one of my first mentors. One of those visuals involved the alarm clock, and how he built a life where he woke up whatever time he wanted to, and went to bed whatever time he wanted to. I remember thinking that sounded so great.
The only problem with that, is that over time, you can end up staying up later and later, and not being able to get up early anymore. The lack of sleep, and weird hours lead to eating all kinds of bad foods, at the worst possible times. The schedule that is “free” also leads to a lack of any kind of system for exercise, in fact, you can get it so twisted that you eat the bad foods, don’t exercise, stay up late, and sleep in…all because of your “Core Value” of freedom. Hopefully this is making sense. The power of the value itself ends up working for you in reverse, instead of being an inspiration, it becomes your undoing.
How To Break The Toxic Connection
Dr. Jay is one of the best there is in the world today at helping people to work through this kind of stuff. He has lived it personally, and shared his tools, techniques, and strategies successfully with countless others as well. The first thing though is to recognize there is a toxic connection in the first place. This is not always an easy thing to do, and the toxicity can slowly seep in over years, gradually undermining the positive and resulting in negative.
Once we recognize the problem we need to immediately begin “reprogramming” the connection in a more specific and positive light. It might even be necessary to set aside that Core Value for a while in order to break the connection. The best thing we can do is to prevent the toxic part from the beginning. One of the most amazing ways to do this, is attending the annual GPS To Success Training. Dr. Jay teaches and discusses so many things that will help you to keep on track, to refine your values, and make sure that everything is properly aligned with where you actually want to go in business, and in life. The more of these kinds of events you can attend throughout the year, the better you will stay on top of what is going on. I stepped away from being in front of successful people for a long time after my wife died. That is what allowed my “Core Value” to become twisted into a negative. Making sure you are constantly “Tuned Up” is invaluable in keeping everything on track. Check out this year’s event, its gonna be a great one!
