Why Values Matter?  

By definition a value is a person's principles or standards of behavior; one's judgment of what is important in life. You must know your values because they dictate the way you plan to live your life. 

If you will fall for or live by any values it means that you have no standards set for how you plan to conduct yourself. Overtime, it's also easy to drift away from values that you have deemed as being really important.
