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.

Much of what is said in this book is the legacy of what the founder of Rotary International said or was literally picked up during his readings in the various conferences that Paul Harris performed throughout his life. It is an extraction from the book Honoring our Past: the words and wisdom of Paul Harris. Having said this, we draw our own reflections and expanded the concepts in good faith trying to follow the path and Rotary philosophy of our Founder. Those who are part of this project called Rotary play a leading role in this epic endeavour that we undertake to overcome inequalities in a world of need. As a result, all Rotarians feel proud when these goals are achieved in the face of understandable difficulties. Rotary and its activities have undoubtedly changed and continue to change its image to the world. The engine of sacrifice and friendship that we have always encouraged at Rotary is a powerful force that is very difficult to stop. In current times, we cannot overlook the fact that in society, public authorities and governments in general do not satisfy or alleviate those needs, and consequently, Rotary plays a key role as a tool to contribute to the welfare of the less fortunate. We must all make an effort to change some of our behaviour. With today’s modern technology, such as social networks, we are increasingly becoming interconnected and well informed. They provide an excellent means by which to proclaim from the rooftops the true and ethical path that society must take and follow. In particular, we must put aside any signs of arrogance that prevents us from conversing with humility to people about their everyday lives, which are often harsh and dramatic.

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.
