Your Personal Mission Statement

“Writing or reviewing a mission statement changes you because it forces you to think through your priorities deeply, carefully, and to align your behaviour with your beliefs”
~Stephen Covey

A personal mission consists of 3 parts:
  • What do I want to do?
  • Who do I want to help?
  • What is the result? What value will I create?

Steps to Creating Your Personal Mission Statement:

1. Do the exercise with the 15 questions above as quickly as you can.

2. List out actions words you connect with.
a. Example: educate, accomplish, empower, encourage, improve, help, give, guide, inspire, integrate, master, motivate, nurture, organize, produce, promote, travel, spread, share, satisfy, understand, teach, write, etc.

3. Based on your answers to the 15 questions. List everything and everyone that you believe you can help.
a. Example: People, creatures, organizations, causes, groups, environment, etc.

4. Identify your end goal. How will the ‘who’ from your above answer benefit from what you ‘do’?

5. Combine steps 2-4 into a sentence, or 2-3 sentences.

What is your purpose? What is your mission? We’d love to hear about your goals and aspirations. Please share with a comment!

I could only hope to inspire, and encourage younger people like myself to pursue their dreams in spite of their fears, doubts, circumstances, or negativity surrounding them. Going through this exercise provided me with a more concrete reason for pursuing my dreams and why I want to reach certain goals. Thanks !

By educating, helping, motivating, encouraging, and inspiring people to know themselves, and accepting, (truly and wholly) who they are, to then live their purpose and then become whole and complete.
By educating people about mental illness, to try my best to help get rid of the negative connotations and prejudices that people often have.
To help people who deal with mental illness, to let them know that they are not alone. To encourage them to learn all they can about their diagnosis', to accept it, and to help them see that it can actually be a gift. And to encourage them to always seek and have help.

i will inspire, create, love, trust, help, travel, overcome, believe, breathe, and conquer! I want to help people, the environment, my friends and family to always believe in themselves and to always keep pushing through whether it be happy or sad. I will love myself first and others, be friendly and kind to everyone you met because you have no clue how they might influence you or what they are going through. I want to help people create a more happy, free, healthy mindset. and to remind that life is simple, do what you love, be true to yourself and others, and it'll all come together!
