My personal mission is to determine purpose in all of my endeavors, pursue passions that have been revealed to me, and demonstrate integrity in my life. The mission also consists of living a fulfilled life by taking advantage of new opportunities and continuously pursuing my quest for knowledge - by meeting new people, traveling to new places, and being receptive to new ideas. My ultimate goal is to place a hand in impacting and enhancing the lives of others. In all, I recognize that my personal mission cannot and will not be fulfilled without the grace of God; the source of my strength, my happiness, and my life.
I wanted to start my first post by sharing my mission statement. I am a firm believer in making things tangible (or real) in our own eyes. Many times do our thoughts just wash away in our minds because there is nothing tangible associated with them. Therefore, like the mere shake of an Etch-a-Sketch, the precious thoughts and ideas in our minds can be lost. The same can be said in how we position ourselves to lead our lives. If we have nothing tangible to grasp, we too can lose focus on the goals we have in our lives. I believe a written mission statement only aides in holding ourselves accountable and strengthening our determination in obtaining our goals. With this being said, I ask, "Do you have a mission statement?" If so, I would love for you to share. If not, I definitely encourage that you take the time to develop one. (I would like to note that it doesn't have to be done overnight, but I strongly recommend that you take the time and really think about what your mission is. If you do have one, it can always change and be strengthened).
