Unfortunately, very few people these days talk about real values in life. What we stand for in life, and are we living up to these values are worth pondering. Are our aspirations in tune with the real purpose of life? It is the values that remind us often what to aspire in life. Most people value life and its achievements from the perspective of wealth and richness, but do not recognize trust, honesty, and contentment as forward looking attributes that help in overall satisfaction. Giving importance to external growth leaving behind inner development often leads to unbalance in life devoid of overall satisfaction. Much of the troubles in this world are that true values of life have narrowed down, skewed, ignored and misunderstood. This book deliberates different aspects of life in terms of personal, moral, spiritual, family and social values and how these can enrich life and fill its purpose. A wide range of topics include How to live an easier life; Thoughts on simplifying life; Virtues of Integrity; Mistakes we generally make; Control on impulsive mind; Being Successful in life; Benefits from silence; Communication with inner self; Creating love for others; How to think positive; How moral values get reinforced; Belief in natural justice; What is spirituality; Understanding self; How to find God; What does death mean to us; Good family values; Being part of whole universe; Universal brotherhood; Towards developing good values. Attempt has been made to describe large issues that are outcome of misdirected value system, and how best a person can move ahead in life by focusing on core values. The idea of writing this book is to facilitate readers to pause and think about what they aspire, and are these aspirations in tandem with broad purpose in life.

from women’s place being in the home, to &nbs p  her place being CEO of corporations; from a struggle &nbs p  to succeed in life, to the responsibilities it entails, “The &nbs p  ABC’s of Values” deals with ideas and ideals that are &nbs p  essential in living life. &nbs p  The transformation of society is inevitable, leading to &nbs p  an older generation’s questioning the new. But some ways of interacting with others, keeping reasonable and responsible standards, is vital to living a good and fulfilled life in every generation. The words chosen in “The ABC’s of Values” and their short, insightful evaluation, can encourage contemplation on how to be a better person and live a better life. The book does not pass judgment on the present or glorify the past, but tries to evaluate actions and attitudes that can improve an individual and society. Words abound in today’s society, on radio, television, telephone, on iPods and are not necessarily significant. This book takes important or ordinary words and explores their meaning and ways in which they can explain a difficulty, en- courage action, or explore a positive component. Words have meaning, and what they mean can help us lead a better life and be a better person. Each word in the book is accompanied by a famous quotation. Each word is aimed at encouraging the reader to enjoy a happy, successful, life of good humor, good friends, good times, doing good things for yourself and those who share it with you. The ABC’s of Values makes it clear that goodness is not always present, but a good attempt at recognizing difficulties and dealing with them makes it possible to live and enjoy a good life.
