Hello beautiful people! In this blog post I will be talking about A Beautiful Me’s very important seven core values. I believe that all of these core values play very important roles in my everyday life, so I will be discussing how I apply these core values in my life and what they mean to me and how we use them at The Closet by A Beautiful Me.
Core Value #1
BE GRATEFUL & HUMBLE: Say thank-you and show appreciation, be optimistic, celebrate small and big wins with humility as well as the wins of others. I strongly believe that being grateful and humble is a very important trait to have. I always try to show gratitude when someone does something for me, and I am grateful for everything and everyone that I have in my life.Being grateful every day helps you stay positive throughout the day and others like to be around optimistic people. I try to be as humble as I can be because I always want to celebrate others, never put them down.
Core Value #2
BE RESPECTFUL: Everyone is valuable and worthy of respect, be on time with your schedule, treat others the way you would want to be treated. I think that everyone in the world is equal no matter what. We are all the same, just some people choose to do different things, but everyone deserves to be treated the same way. Everyone deserves to be respected, and everyone is valued. I try to be respectful to everyone I may meet, and make sure that everyone knows that they are valued and worthy. One way I show people that I respect them is by doing things when they ask me to so that they know I care and want to help them.
Core Value #3
ENCOURAGE OTHERS: Use kind words and actions to support and encourage each person God created. I really try to remember to encourage others every second of my life. I believe that encouraging someone can help them gain more confidence and realize what they can actually accomplish in life. You never know what someone may be going through, so it is better to be kind to everyone at all times because words can hurt more than you may realize.
Core Value #4
IMPROVE: Continuously strive to improve yourself. View ways for A Beautiful Me to collaboratively improve or to be innovative in our mission. Everyday is a new day and a fresh beginning to improve yourself and I believe that everyone should take that opportunity. Self improvement helps enhance strength, improve mental health, and can even heal relationships and things in the past. Some simple ways to improve yourself and your mindset on a daily basis are, reading a book, trying something new, or even just meditating. Even some of the most simple things can help you improve yourself to be a better person.
Core Value #5
LAUGH!: Life is fun, with each adventure or challenge, find laughter, be youthful, your positive smile to another person is a gift. This one is definitely something that I live by every day and I think it is such an important thing to live by. I try my best to always think that I only have one life to live, so I should live it to the fullest. I always try to have a positive mindset in every situation, no matter what it is. You never know how your own mindset could affect someone else. Laughing and having a positive mindset can cause you to have less pain and sadness in your life too.
Core Value #6
LIVE WITH INTEGRITY: Speak the truth, make agreements that you intend to keep, communicate potential broken agreements with the understanding to forgive yourself and others. I love, love, love this core value!! I always try my best to make sure I tell the truth about everything and to not make promises that I can’t keep. I feel that everyone should live with integrity, not only because people will be able to trust you more easily, but also because it is easier to communicate with people which is a big thing for me in life.
Core Value #7
PRAY: Prayer changes everything, we pray for our family, friends, volunteers, staff, and those we serve. I, myself, pray as often as I can. I believe that even if you are not religious, it is still very important to give everyone in your life grace. You never know what someone could be going through because you only see what they choose to show you, and our words can help others when they need it the most. Our words can hurt more than we may realize. Even if you are not religious, choose to give everyone grace so they can have the best possible life that they can live.
During my time working at The Closet by A Beautiful Me, I have been able to dig deeper into these core values and their meanings, and apply them to my life more often. At The Closet by A Beautiful Me, we strive to apply all of these core values not only to everyone that is a part of our team, but encourage our customers to do the same. One way that we incorporate these values into our work ethics is by always putting our customers first and also having positive words and being greeted with a smile.
