Writing Your Life Mission Statement

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:

Personal Heroes

  • 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:

    • Student

    • Spouse

    • Parent

    • Grandparent

    • Friend

    • Employee

    • Boss

What if…

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

Time for a List

List Number 1

  • Strengths

  • Talents

  • Thing you enjoy

  • Activities you are good at

  • Favorite hobbies

* *If your mission statement can leverage these skills and talents, you’ll be able to accomplish more!

List Number 2

  • What do you want to accomplish in life?

  • Below are some prompts to get brainstorming started:

Alleviate poverty in your city

Fearlessly try new foods, activities or visit new places

Change careers to leverage your favorite hobby

Support aging parents

Be a committed life long learner

Concrete Goal Setting

  • Seek a professional to resolve issue from childhood

  • Read a self help or parenting book and apply what you learned

  • Get involved in your child's daycare or school by volunteering

  • Read each night to your kiddos

  • Tell my spouse and/or child “I love you” at least twice a day

In order to guide you to write your mission statement, I have created a workbook to set clear goals and determine your purpose. Developing your mission statement will help you set clear boundaries and a pathways to achieving your hearts desire.

Inhale. Exhale.
