Updated: Feb 15, 2021
Do you want to live a more driven and purposeful life?
Have you ever thought about how you can use your strengths, interests and core values to guide your journey through life? Creating a life mission statement can enable you to simplify your daily life while making you feel a sense of fulfillment.
In order to develop your mission statement and make your goals more obvious to yourself; I suggest you print out the workbook and begin asking yourself some of the following questions:
Who are your heroes in life?
Why do you admire them?
What have they done or said that has inspired you to be a better person?
Do you or your personal heroes have anything in common?
Have they had similar experiences that resonate with you?
Do your heroes have personality traits that you aspire to?
Your True Self
What have you accomplished in life so far?
What contribution have you made to the lives of the people around you?
Reflect on the roles below that you currently have or may have in the future. Write down what your goals are or would be in relation to these roles:
Imagine you are 100 years old and you’re asked to reflect back on your life.
What experiences do you want to be able to share with others?
Completing a graduate degree?
Starting your own business?
Travelling the world?
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro?
Having happy or successful children?
Starting a charity for a worthy cause?
Making a million dollars?
Start with the end in mind and work backwards to create a path to bring your dreams to life
