Last week we talked about BEING YOU (if you missed it, check it out on the Inside Out Blog). This carries along the same theme…
One of my patients and I had an interesting conversation about values.
He told me that people at work were pressuring him to stay longer at his shift to help him pump up his “stats” and “numbers”. Of course I’m sure there was tremendous pressure to stay. Many people would naturally succumb to the pressure. But John had to pick up his son at school at a specific time and that was the end of that. He did not stay.
Some may question his decision. Why not find someone to pick his son up? Some may think he is risking his job status and reputation at work. But to me what John did was a reflection of his values. His priority was his family. I admire that. I think too often we have society dictate what our values are. Or often we allow fear to make decisions in our life.
How often do we make decisions to make other people happy? How often do we make decisions that go against our beliefs and value system? I know for myself, in the past, I let fear of what other people wanted to guide my decisions. As a result, I never felt good or right about those decisions. The reason was that it was going against my core values.
Ask yourself, “What are my core values?” What is important to you? Is it your family? Is it God? Is it your career? Is it your health? In what order do you place these things? Ask yourself these questions. There are no right answers.
Each person may have different values. The most important thing about this is to be congruent with your values. I read in a book once that your schedule reflects your values.
If you SAY your family is important and you don’t spend any time with them, that’s not being congruent with your values. If you say your health is important, but you’re not exercising, eating right and missing your adjustments, one can question what your true core values are.
The decisions you make in your life should be guided by your values. Don’t let fear or other people get in the way of it. I believe that a life guided by your values leads to true happiness and freedom.
Have an amazing week!

I first heard about Inside Out as a sponsor of the Bolton fall fair. I explained to Dr. Ryan that I was in pain for years and only went for treatment for the pain symptoms and not to prevent them, he invited me to come visit him and since then I have no more pain! I’m learning to improve my quality of life in other areas such as listening to my body and helping it function like god intended it too. Since coming to Inside Out I have learned proper exercising and the advanced seminars taught me how to eat healthier and what my body does with what I give it. If you are a new or old client I suggest you keep going, it will improve your quality of life. Thank you Dr. Ryan for everything you have done for me you are making it possible for me to be walking the beach with my spouse in my 70’s.
