The Mission is Possible
A mission statement is not something you write overnight... But fundamentally, your mission statement becomes your constitution, the solid expression of your vision and values. It becomes the criterion by which you measure everything else in your life. -Stephen Covey
I’m not exactly sure when I wrote my first personal mission statement, but in 2011, I remember being inspired by one of my Facebook friend's family mission statement. I immediately sat down with my family and we created our own poster, laminated it, and posted it up by the front door. This way, every time we walk in and out of the door, we can stay reminded of our family’s mission.
Our family mission statement has made a huge impact on how we do family. I encourage you to have a personal mission statement, a family mission statement, and if you have a business - one for your business.
If you need help, research “personal mission statement” on Google. Below, I’ve included my personal mission statement and my family’s mission statement.
Sheréa VéJauan’s Mission Statement: My life’s mission is to serve God, to honor and respect my husband. To be a role model to my family and my community. To be a good steward of my time, finances and friendships. To eventually hear… “Well done, good and faithful servant and to have my name written in the book of life.”
My Family’s Mission Statement: Our Family’s mission is to serve God, our church community, and the community in which we live. To honor, respect, and support each other. To be good stewards of our time, finances and friendships. To continue to learn, and love one another by our actions, deeds, and thoughts. To listen to each other, and to be God’s reflection of what family should look like.Sheréa VéJauan is the author of the 2017 Goals Journal, as well as several other titles, including, My Goals Journal, Realistically Speaking: Speaking What's Real, Keeping What's Holy, 7 Simple Steps to Achieving Your Business Goals, 3 Simple Steps to Creating a Powerful Vision Board, 52 Mondays Companion Journal, and many others.
