The Reflection in the Mirror

Do you know your values? During my morning mountain hike with Piper, I listened to Andy Stanley's podcast episode: "The American in the Mirror." It was about the importance of self leadership. Lots of nuggets of wisdom like: "There are worst things than feeling bad about yourself." For example: Lying to yourself. You can't lead yourself if you lie to yourself. If you were an employer, you'd fire someone who lied to you. I especially identified with the realization that our friends should be based not just on common interests, but also on common values. I have so many interests in writing, motorcycles, aviation, martial arts, travel, etc., that I routinely try to befriend people based on these common interests. But sometimes that friendship doesn't mix well, and I can always tie it back to the fact that we share different values. Do you know your values? Choose the 5 that are most important to you:
