The definition of a mission statement is to give purpose or direction for a business. It is the company’s meaning of existence. A personal mission statement is just that, but for you, the individual.
Defining your personal mission statements will probably take several drafts. And then after you have written a few drafts, write more. Until it’s perfect. It’s going to be frustrating.
If you are trying to remind yourself what you are all about then a mantra will point you in the right direction. Especially in the online world of blogging, Youtube, Pinterest, Google Plus and so much more. It is easy to get a split personality without even noticing.
First things first on developing your personal mission statement – determine your values. What do you believe in? What are you most passionate about? Think about keywords and phrases that stand out to you. It’s time to brainstorm.
Here are a few that stand out to me:
Passion // Creative // Family // Making money count // Gaining knowledge // Fabulous
In the end there is no right or wrong way to write a personal mission statement. Remember that it is an expression of who you are and how you want to present yourself to the world.
Be proud of what you have created. Hang it on the wall and make it beautiful!
