  • When I got to my top ten choices, it started to become a difficult process. Some choices were easy to make, and some were not. I was able to eliminate some choices by comparing them. A good amount of the choices had similar meanings to each other. In the top ten some of the choices that were difficult, was stability, leisure, humor, dependability, and industry. Stability was difficult for me to eliminate because in the future I want to be able to have a stable life and live comfortably. Leisure was also a hard choice to make because I like to take the time to relax and enjoy life. Humor was another because, I like to have fun and joke around with other people. The fourth choice that was hard for me to make was dependability. I like to be reliable and trustworthy towards myself, instead of depending on someone else for something. The final choice that was difficult was industry, I like to work hard and put my effort into any task in life.
  • The five final choices I end up with was wealth, God’s will, adventure, family, and realism. The reason why I ended up with wealth because, I like to have plenty of money and enjoy spending it. Without money, you won’t be able to get the things you need or want. I choose “God’s Will” to be in my top five because, I like to seek and obey the will of God. Adventure was a third choice of mine because, I like to have new experiences and travel a lot. Family was a fourth choice of mine because I like being happy and loving with my intermediate family and close people around me. Realism was a final choice for me, because I try to be realistic with everyone around me. I can use awareness of what value to help me achieve short-term and long-term goals by using my top five choices as a motivational factor. This could drive me, to achieve my goals and other things in life.
