I do! If you don’t , you need one. Why? For the same reason a business has one. A personal mission statement is your reminder of your ethics (standards or code), morals (personal character) and the reason behind your purpose. Creating your personal mission statement will give you clarity for your goals and define your mission.
As a business owner or leader, a personal mission statement will hold you accountable and keep you focused. It will give you insights to the challenges you face and open your mind to new possibilities. How? If you are honest with yourself, you can start to see yourself change and move your life in the direction of your focus and your goals. You will see your accomplishments differently, note your success and see a pattern start to form. Your confidence will boost and your demeanor will change.
If you don’t believe me, try it and see what happens.
