Construct Your Personal Mission Statement

Do you feel like you’re adrift in life with no clear aim or purpose? Writing a Mission Statement can help you clarify your values and define your vision for what you want your life to look like.

Do you feel confident that your life is on track and you’re where you need to be, doing what you need to be doing? A Mission Statement can strengthen your resolve and serve as a daily  reminder to stay on course.

I’m not talking about a generic one-sentence Mission Statement that can apply to two-thirds of the people on earth. I recommend a three-pronged Mission Statement that details who you are, why you’re here, and what you can do every day to ensure that you live your very best life.

Once you draft your three-part Mission Statement, treat it as a living document. Keep it fresh by revising it as needed, deleting items that no longer resonate and adding items that strike a chord. Keep your Mission Statement posted where you can see it, perhaps in the front of your planner, on the wall near your desk, or on your bathroom mirror. The more often you see it and repeat it, the deeper it sinks into your consciousness.

Here’s a sample Mission Statement to get you started. Have at it!


• I am unconditionally loving and kind.
• I am a wonderful friend to all who cross my path.
• I am eternally youthful.
• I am the world’s best husband.
• I am the world’s best dad.
• I am a lifetime learner.
• I am a disciplined high achiever.

• To encourage and inspire others to live a more positive, loving life.
• To help people heal in deep and meaningful ways.
• To create a legacy of love that will inspire future generations.

• To live in constant attunement with God.
• To maintain a heightened appreciation of all the many blessings in my life.
• To be a source of love, hope and healing energy to every soul I encounter.
• To maintain paradise health through enlightened self-care.
• To love and care for my beloved wife.
• To create and nurture mutually beneficial, emotionally intimate relationships.
