Step 1 List 8 people who you know and like.

Step 2 Next to each person’s name write down 2 or 3 things you like about them.

Step 3 Go through your list and group similar characteristics. For example:

Strong/Determined/Resilient

Happy/Funny/Positive

Step 4 Give yourself a pat on the back. These are the values that reflect who you are. You admire them and strive to make decisions that are consistent with them.

You’ve got to be happy with that!
