Personal Mission Statement (Part I of Plan, Goals, & Purpose Theme)

Personal Mission Statement (Part I of Plan, Goals, & Purpose Theme

“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan.” -Jim Rohn #plangoalsandpurpose

This blog entry will be published in two parts. We’ll begin by stating that your primary purpose in the eyes of God is to love God, love others, and to be a disciple and share the gospel with others so that they will learn about Christ and receive eternal salvation. Outside of that primary purpose, we all can (and should) have other purposes that we identify for our life journey. For example, you might define one of your secondary purposes in life to be a caregiver to the natural environment or conservationist. Whatever your secondary purpose(s) might be, the great news is that the primary purpose can be achieved within the secondary. Whatever your circumstances are, wherever God has placed you right now, you likely have a mission field all around you and can witness to others.

Creating a personal mission statement is the exercise of defining your purpose in life. It is difficult to live a truly fulfilling life if you have not identified what “fulfilling” looks like. In other words, begin with the end in mind. Your personal mission statement is a statement made today to clarify your personal intention and purpose in life and serves as a daily written reminder to keep you on track. What would you want people to say about you when your life is at it’s end? What contributions would you like to have made? What achievements would you like to be remembered by? What impact would you like to have made in people’s lives? Your personal mission statement sets your life direction now by exploring and interacting with your personal passions, dreams, and unique gifts. It is the basis for decisions, plans, goals, and daily actions in the future. Personal mission statements can be as short as a few words or as long as several paragraphs. It requires considerable thought and may take significant time to write. Personal mission statements can also be revised and updated throughout the course of your life as circumstances and your maturity in life unfold.

Below is a brief example of a personal mission statement that you can use as a guide in forming your own. Also consider reading other personal mission statements for inspiration and direction on how they are written. Define it, write it down, live it out! Start your journey today!
