Alert! Today’s blog is filled with soul-searching questions.
Today I’m writing about mission statements. I was reading a book by Lynda Field on 60 ways to feel amazing. She talked about “what is your mission statement .”
Why are we here? To make the world happier?
To provide a service that makes people’s lives more convenient? To help people to organise their lives?
When you have a mission statement Lynda says, your life can have a new direction and purpose.
She says we bring our own unique set of skills and strengths to this planet and we came here to use those abilities.
How do you feel about that? What is your purpose? Why do you do, what you do? What is your big reason for getting out of bed in the morning? How do you feel you can help others while bringing joy to your own self?
When we discover what is pushing us, or driving us from within ourselves and then match it up with our everyday activities we/I can bring a new joy to our lives and a direction. We can feel so much more energy. We feel uplifted. We feel a sense of purpose; we’re moving forward we’re helping others .
It’s easy to make a life plan a yearly plan a monthly plan a weekly plan a daily plan when we know where we’re going and why.
My vision is that our mission statement is like the roots of a tree, the roots of a plant because it gives us a foundation, a firm base. Then from there we can grow our branches and reach out to others.
The roots of the tree are is a mission our reason for being or doing.
The Trunk is ourselves our mind our physical body.
And the branches are us reaching out to help others to be part of the whole of society both the larger world and our smaller world of friends family and colleagues .
What do you think? How important is a mission statement to you? It doesn’t have to be a long drawn out document . Just a guide, a few sentences something short.
Do you have a mission statement? How did it come to you.. intuitively or did you do some kind of process to develop your mission statement?
My mission statement is constantly evolving, but it centres around helping and encouraging people to be positive and to be their best selves through my voice over work and other mediums.
