Identify and live by your foundational values
Live by your core values
If honesty is one of your core values, then be yourself everywhere you go instead of saying things just to please people. If you value long-term thinking, then align your decisions accordingly.
Find people who share your core values
For example, if you value honesty, stay away from people who are deceitful as they may encourage you to compromise your honesty. In all your relationships, find people who line up with your values. This will make it easier to build a valuable and lasting network that can reap big financial rewards in future.
