Core Values


As promised in Bentley Murdock’s chapter Daily Compass, of Jack Canfield’s
book series The Soul of Success, Vol. 1, here is our extensive list of potential virtues, morals, strengths, characteristics, standards, and core values. As you review this list, give yourself only short amounts of time to determine your own top 50, then 20, then 10, and ultimately narrowing all the way down to your top 3 to 5. Those top 3 to 5 core values will become the roots and trunk from which all of your future successes and accomplishments will grow and flourish. If you don’t see a particular virtue or value that you think should be present in this list, please let us know by filling out the contact form on our Connect With Us┬ápage… And by all means, put that particular value or virtue of yours on your own list as well! All the best to you on your journey of determining your own personal core values!
