“Values Discovery”

013 thumb “Values Discovery”

Hello Folks I am getting more & more excited with each passing day!! as I am about to unveil to the world my first book! It seems there are always details in these processes that one may forget & since I am new at this as well I have found even more ‘bridges to cross’  before I can reach my ‘Promised Land’

A friend & I were discussing my book & he asked me to share some high lights of my book , “The Veneration of My Values” which (fingers crossed) should be out by early March.

So I have decided to share my outline on my Blog as well, let me know your thoughts! Please!

“THE VENERATION OF MY VALUES” ( A book of self-discovery of my personal Values & how I might use them to impact my world in the best way possible)

CHAPTER 1: “The Search For Value”

“Daily I am becoming of Worth & Value to all I meet.”

“My Thoughts & Actions today, CREATE the reality of my Tomorrows.”

CHAPTER 2: “Be Strong & Be Well.”

“I am becoming stronger & Healthier in my Values Daily.”

CHAPTER 3: “Venerating My Values”

“My Values are the Foundation & Anchor for how I will live each day.”

“When I connect my values to my gifts & talents I will be an UNSTOPPABLE force for good in the world.”

“Daily I am on a journey of initiation & consecration to a Higher way of thought & Living.”

“I claim my power to choose my lifestyle because I have a Love & Zeal for Life.”

“I am honoring & reverencing my journey & process to find & place strength, abundance, & success values into my life.”

CHAPTER 4: “The core four values”

The Foundation of My Life Is Built on Faith, Gratitude, Authenticity, & Abundance

“Daily I choose to be Grateful to the Creator for all the Gifts he has given me.”

“Daily, I choose to Pour out my Gifts upon others.”

CHAPTER 5: “The Channeling Values”

“Daily I choose to live a life of passion, communicating & creating a model of service to & for all.”

CHAPTER 6: “The Fruitful Values”

“My Life is as a fruitful tree producing meaningful relationships, freedom & joy.”

CHAPTER 7: “Living A Life of Valor”

I am living a life of Valor, because I am pursuing & Living my values.”

    Hey Matt The GREAT,

    What a great ‘sneak peak’ into your upcoming book.
    I look forward to getting my hands on it…
    In particular I love chapter 5 “The Channeling Values” – “Daily I choose to live a life of passion, communicating & creating a model of service to & for all.”
    I strive to live each moment of each day in this state of BEING!

    Thanks for sharing my friend.

    Make it a great day!
    God Bless,
    The GREAT Edward!

    You are a man of high moral character and this must have been quite a journey for you.
    I think it is great that you are putting yourself out there and announcing to the world your value and belief system and living it every day. Good for you…

    Thanks for sharing the outline and I look forward to the release…

    Hi Matt,
    Congrats on the book! I am sure it will be the first of many. My favorite chapter will likely be #4 on the core values. Once you have those figured out it certainly makes things simpler, right? You can always refer back to your core values to figure out whether or not you want to do something, spend time with someone or invest in a particular area. Can’t wait for your release. Have a POWERFUL week! Allegra

    Hi Matthew. How exciting that you are on the cusp of your first book. I love to write, also, and I combine music for children with my writing. I’m in the process of finishing up 3 books, and I don’t know if I’ll ever get done. Think my book, “How the West Was Sung: The Story of the American Cowboy and His Songs” should be done by the end of the week. Best of luck with your book, and I’ll be waiting to hear more about you.

    Wishing you a song in your heart,

    Hi Matt ~ CONGRATULATIONS on your new book ~ How exciting!!! Personal growth is such an important component in my life, and your “sneak peek” of chapters from your book seems very much inline with the core values/virtues that I also very much believe in. You’ll have to keep us all posted when your book is released in March :-) Christine

    First I want to say that you are truly living your values, living into the values you talk about in your book. What a powerful topic and what a gift to the world. Congratulations on your book and for winning both the most comments and the highest number of syndications. My book, Love Me, Touch Me, Heal Me, continues to bring me pleasure. I had my first few email coaching clients and after they presented their background, stories and needs, I realized that what they needed was, guess what, one of MY books – and they bought it and used it. What an incredible feeling.
    I am so excited for you. You will feel as if the world has opened up when you put that book out there.

    Congratulations on the new book! Wow, what an accomplishment. And your subject matter must have been so uplifting every day you worked on this project. I have a writer in my family and a good friend that is working on a branding book, so I have an appreciation for what a great accomplishment it is to get your passions and stories on paper for all to see. Best of luck to you!

    Thank you for giving us already a sneak peak into what is to come. I can only imagine how you must feel after writing down your incredible experience to your inner self. I am very impressed by the way you seem to find energy in gratitude. Not too many people seem to master that skill, but it sounds like you do. Congrats!

    I think I like ch.6 best. So many times through the years, God has given me Isaiah 61:3 as my special verse. I love the first part, where he promises “beauty for ashes” etc. But I also love the last part where He tells us WHY He strengthens us… so that we will be trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that HE may be glorified. And that is what I want to do through my business… be a strong, well established tree that bears fruit for not only my own benefit, but for many others as well.

    Is your book out yet Matt? I love your outline of chapter 3, Venerating My Values. I agree completely with the sentiments expressed. I think it was Covey (not positive, could be mistaken) who said that the way we live shows what we really value. So your affirmations truly show the intent with which you live your life. Great post!
