mission statement

I have found that great people do have in common an immense belief

in themselves and in their mission.

They also have great determination as well as an ability to work hard.

At the crucial moment of decision, they draw on their accumulated wisdom.

Above all, they have integrity.

Why you do I need one?

Your personal development and motivation is one of the keys to a successful and happy life. You have a better chance of arriving at your intended goal or destination if you have in mind how you will get there and who you will be when you arrive. And, if you want to feel fulfilled from day to day, then you need to know what makes you tick. To get to where you want to be, you will need to be able to meet your goals and even exceed a few of them, and with a personal mission statement you will be that much closer to being in the proper position to do that.

Most businesses have mission statements. Unfortunately, for most businesses it becomes a mantra which garners no more attention than reciting the pledge of allegiance from memory does for most people. But for you, they can be a great way to make it known to yourself and to others just where you want to be and what your true goals really are. When you know your goal you can be continually working toward them. If you simply bumble and tumble through life, you will not remain on course with the same amount of steadiness. Everyone can benefit from a mission statement and if you want to get where you are going, today you are going to start by writing your own.

What it is?

Your personal mission statement is not just about getting what you want out of work or out of the people around you. It also needs to speak to giving something back to the world and to your loved ones. A mission statement will help you to find out just where you stand in the world and help you to find out just what you should be doing for the sake of those around you. Take your time with this project and see how you can change the world for the better. If you know that there is more that you could be doing for the entire world, or even for a few people in your corner of the world, then this will help you realize those dreams as well.

Your personal mission statement will help you to evolve into the person that you have always dreamed of becoming. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, and of being the kind of person who simply lets things happen to them, then a mission statement is for you. Using this tool you will become a person to reckon with, a powerhouse of determination and skill. This statement is going to change your entire life for the better and it will begin to do so immediately. As soon as you take the step to start writing it you are going to begin to grow and evolve in ways that you ever thought possible.

Where do I start?

If you come here often, then you know the drill. Start with just a simple pen and paper. Sit down and write about the person you are today. Do you like yourself? Do you like where you are, what you are doing? Do you think that there are areas in your life that could use a little improvement? Write about it and be specific about how you are going to make those changes.

Don’t forget to also focus on your strengths and your abilities. Write how you want to change and in what areas of your life as well as about the goals that you want to see yourself meet over time. Which goals are short term ones and which are long terms goals? Write down all of the personal tings that you want to see happen and change in your life and you will change from that day forward.

The way forward is best traveled with the use of a road-map. You will only know where you are going, if you are making progress, and when you have arrived by taking the time to get to know yourself better and discovering your mission in life.
