Write Your Own Personal Mission Statement

by Laura Kronen on September 28, 2011

If you want to start living into your desired future, take the time to write a Personal Mission Statement. Then put it where you can read it on a regular basis to stay inspired.

A Personal Mission Statement connects you with your own unique purpose, integrating various aspects of your life and how you perceive them.  It defines who you are and establishes what is important, making it easier to define goals and strategies that will help you achieve those goals.  It also enables us to start a new path when we are at a crossroads in life.  Think of it as your desired legacy.

Personal Mission Statements are a great way to focus your energy, actions, behaviors and decisions towards the things that are most important to you.  It is not something you write overnight.  It is something that takes deep thought and careful analysis.  You need to go deep within yourself. If you have an empowered core and a clear vision it will change the way you relate to the world.

Tips for writing a mission statement:
1.  Keep it short – 3 to 5 sentences at maximum.
2.  Make it positive.  Focus on what you want to become rather than what you don’t want to do.
3.  Focus on who you want to become as a person.  Think of character traits
4.  Organize your thoughts in to what brings you happiness, what inspires you, what you do best and what you enjoy doing.  Also include things you have always wanted to do.
5.  Create a statement that can guide you in your day to day life, not just a major goal you have in mind.
6.  Make it emotional and infuse it with passion.

Don’t forget to review it often because life changes at a fevered pace!  Here are some examples to inspire you:

***I will look for strengths in others, and the good in every situation. I will ensure that I do what I can to create a learning environment everywhere I go. I will live with and attitude of gratitude. I will repay every kindness shown to me. I will live, work, and play with renewed spirit.***

***I am trustworthy and empathetic towards others. I strive to build trust based on performance.I am committed to growth in my personal and work relationships. I will find my inner strength and overcome obstacles that hide my goals***

***Love others as I love myself.  Pursue Growth – personal and spiritual.  Strive for Excellence in everything I choose to do. Maintain my Integrity through each decision and action.***

****To find happiness, fulfillment, and value in living, I will seek out and experience all of the pleasures and joys that life has to offer. My core values are not limitations restraining me on this hedonistic quest for fun. Rather, they provide a framework for identifying, pursuing, and achieving those pleasures that last the longest and are the most satisfying. The greatest joy of all is being worthy of the respect and admiration of family, friends, and business associates***

Inspire us with YOUR personal mission statement…

I agree with the post and my comment is: Manifesting abundance working with positive affirmations is one of the tools you will opt to choose. You see, I firmly believe that there are lots of helpful approaches that function for each one of us at a specified level in our lives. And individuals who have been using affirmations and are successfully achieving a constructive mindset will gladly tell you how powerful these affirmations are. To manifest abundance, you need openness to embrace your faults, failures or even the imperfection of things and see that existence is full of endless possibilities.
