Where ever you go you’ll find that big businesses and leaders alike have mission statements to give them two things.
The first is clarity. It makes the reason behind all their actions clear and it keeps them focused. Secondly mission statements give people direction. It makes sure that people are heading towards a common goal or purpose.
Do you have a mission statement for your life? If so, what is it? If not why not create one right now that allows you to keep on track.
If you don’t know where to begin here’s some I made earlier; in fact here’s 21 mission statements that you can use and edit to keep you on the straight and narrow.
1. To be an amazing friend who is always there.
Real friends are few and far between. Perhaps it could be one of your missions in life to be an outstanding friend to those who need you.
2.To be a thrilling writer that is a companion to many.
Could you be the next Dan Brown or J. K. Rowling? I think you can.
3. To be a master of the internet and allow the world to come together.
4. To be a great healer of mankind.
Perhaps you already have the gift of healing and are looking to put it to good use. This mission statement may be the very thing to get you there.
5. To be an explorer and find something wonderful to share with the world where ever I go.
Haven’t you every been recommended a wonderful place to go when your travel? Maybe you could collate the most amazing places and share them with everyone.
