Personal Mission Statement

Personal Mission Statement! Does it sound familiar? Or it’s your first time? Not to worry, if it sounds familiar, you will learn more from this piece and if it’s your first time, you’ll definitely love it. Ok, so every organization has both Vision and Mission…’s same now but the difference is…..this is about YOU! Your personal Mission Statement- the reason you exist, what you stand for, what you want to achieve….where you’re heading to. This is very important in one’s life because it gives meaning to the life of an individual, it describes what you want to accomplish in life. Most importantly, it captures your daily life, behavior, streamlines your activities, serves as a guide throughout your lifetime, gives your life direction and gives you that sense of purpose


Begin by

  • identifying your core values and principles
  • identifying your strengths and talents
  • assessing your ability
  • accepting and embracing your dreams, your passion

A lovely guide: You’re driving to the funeral of a loved one. As you get there, you notice flowers, the soft drums or music, you see faces of friends and family you pass along the way, you feel the shared sorrow of losing, the joy of having known, that radiates from the hearts of people there As you walk down to the front of the room and look into the casket, you suddenly come face to face with yourself. This is your funeral, three years from today. All these people have come to honor you, to express feelings of love and appreciate your life. As you take your seat and wait for the service to begin, you look at the program in your hand. There are four speakers:

  • the first is someone from your family, immediate and also extended; children, brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins who have come from all over the country to attend
  • the second speaker is one of your friends; someone who can give a sense of who you were as a person
  • the third speaker is from your school, work or profession
  • the fourth is from your religious society or some community organization you were involved in service

Now think and put this in a journal:

  • What would you like each of these speakers to say about you and your life?
  • What attributes would they have seen in you?
  • What contributions would you want them to remember?
  • What differences would you like to have made in their lives?
  • What achievements or success stories would you want them to talk about?
  • What kind of husband, wife, father, mother, aunt, uncle, nephew, niece, cousin, student, boss, colleague, grand dad, grand mum, friend would you like their words to reflect?
