Values are beliefs or attitudes about what is important, meaningful, and desirable in life. They are often shaped by cultural, religion, and family background, and are what guide our behavior and decision-making. Values are important because they shape our character, morals, and principles. They are our beliefs that influence our behavior and our behavior is a reflection of our character. 

Our morals help us determine what is right and wrong and guide our personal and social behavior.


Principles are fundamental beliefs or rules of conduct that a person holds to be true and guides their actions. They are a reflection of a person's values and morals, and serve as the foundation of personal character and behavior.

Character refers to the qualities that make a person unique, such as honesty, integrity, responsibility, and courage. It is how a person acts and behaves in various situations, and is influenced by their values, morals, and principles.

Good values are subjective and vary from person to person, but generally refer to positive qualities that lead to positive outcomes. Some common examples of good values include:

  • Honesty

  • Integrity

  • Respect

  • Responsibility

  • Compassion

  • Courage

  • Fairness

  • Gratitude

  • Perseverance

  • Unconditional Love

Good values guide our decisions by serving as a moral compass that helps us determine what is right and wrong, and what actions align with our personal beliefs. They provide a framework for decision-making, and help us prioritize what is most important in life.

For example, if honesty is a key value, it may influence a person to be truthful in all their dealings, even if it may not be the easiest or most convenient path. If respect is a value, a person may choose to treat others with dignity and kindness, even in challenging circumstances.

In this way, values serve as a guide for behavior and decision-making, helping individuals to act in line with their personal beliefs and values, and contribute to personal and social well-being.

Having positive values lead us to happy, healthy, positive lives.
