Monday Morning Boost: What Are Your Core Values?

Monday Morning Boost: What Are Your Core Values?

In the realm of leadership, being intentional serves as a guiding force that propels individuals to create meaningful impact and lasting change.

Intentional leaders understand that success isn’t merely a product of chance but rather a result of deliberate actions rooted in core values. In today’s conversation, we will delve into the essence of intentional leadership, illuminating the pivotal role of foundational values.

From fostering trust through unwavering integrity to cultivating inclusive environments driven by empathy and crafting visionary pathways for growth, intentional leadership transcends traditional notions of authority.

Join us on a journey to unravel the transformative potential of intentional leadership, where every decision is purposeful, every interaction is meaningful, and every outcome is driven by a steadfast commitment to excellence.


My core purpose is not just a mere declaration; it is a solemn commitment to deliberate empowerment. It begins with me, as I consciously embark on the journey to craft a narrative steeped in love and greatness. Yet, this purpose extends far beyond the confines of self, resonating with a deeper resonance: to ignite the same flame within others, empowering them to wield the pen of authorship over their own stories of love and greatness.

This is my core purpose: My core purpose is to intentionally empower myself to create a story of love and greatness and then empower others to intentionally create their own story of love and greatness.


The core principles of the Power of Three can help you identify the core foundational values for living your best life. Clarifying 1) What Matters Most, 2) what’s within your Control and Influence, and 3) what you most Love and Enjoy will help you create a solid and lasting value-based foundation that will serve like a North Star guiding your every effort.

For reference, I am including my personal core purpose and values.


  • Love & Compassion – I intentionally choose to feel love and compassion for myself and for other people. I see the greatness in people, honor and respect their humanity, and hold sacred space for their feelings, emotions, and opinions.
  • Intentional Confidence – I intentionally surround myself with the greatness of others to instill a more confident level of greatness in myself. In turn, I seek to be a light of confidence, hope, and love, shining bright in the darkest of moments, rising in hope from the ashes of defeat that together we can soar on confident wings of greatness.
  • Solution Focused – I intentionally and consistently focus on creating solutions to challenges and problems, focusing on results, finding ways to say yes to the best, which can include saying no to the good.
  • Honesty & Confidentiality – I intentionally hold as sacred any and all information received within any relationships, personally or professionally.
  • Faith & Prayer – I deeply rely upon my personal connection with my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ. I rely on faith and prayer to navigate the challenging journey of life.


To lead is to embark on a sacred journey, guided by the beacon of purpose and values. It is a call to transcend the ordinary, to sculpt narratives that resonate with the harmony of love and greatness. As stewards of empowerment, we wield the power to ignite flames of transformation, illuminating the path for others to tread with confidence and grace.

In the journey of leadership, every thread is imbued with significance, weaving together the collective aspirations of a community bound by purpose. Let us, therefore, embrace our roles as architects of empowerment, sculpting narratives that transcend the confines of time, echoing through the annals of history as testaments to the indomitable spirit of humanity.

As we embark on this noble endeavor, let us remember that the true essence of leadership lies not in the pursuit of power, but in the cultivation of love, compassion, and unwavering integrity. Together, let us script stories that inspire, uplift, and empower, weaving a tapestry of greatness that transcends the boundaries of imagination.

For in the end, it is not the accolades or achievements that define our legacy, but the lives we touch and the hearts we transform along the way.

That’s the reason Intentional Leadership matters.

Have a great Monday! Thanks for letting me share.

I Love You!
