With love floating along in the air it’s a great idea to grab hold onto it. Take a moment to pause and reflect on yourself before heading out to have an amazing date with your loved one. After all, you can not accept or give love if you are not truly loving yourself first.Today write yourself a mission statement to celebrate yourself, center yourself and honor yourself.
A personal mission statement is very similar to one of a company’s, it clearly illustrates the questions of; Why do you exist? What purpose do you serve? What do you believe in? What are your core values? How do you contribute to the world? What defines success for you?
Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire
If mission statement sounds too big then just call it a statement of intent! It also doesn’t need to completed today, it’s meant to grow and evolve with you. So it might take a day, a week, the rest of the month to grow to its full size. Don’t worry!
How to Start: Brew yourself your morning cup of alertness, grab some gel pens and paper and get comfortable. Below I’ve listed some questions but they’re just ideas to get the juices flowing, take what you will and leave what you don’t want. There are no rules here.
💖 What are my values? 💖 When am I happiest? 💖 What is your role in life? Are you happy with it? 💖 What do you want out of life? 💖 What do I love in my personal life? 💖 I would be happy if… 💖 If I knew I would not fail I would be doing… 💖 How do you plan to grow? 💖 What do you love most about yourself? 💖 What rules do you live by? 💖 What rules do you want to live by? 💖What do you believe in? 💖 What defines success for you? 💖 What goals do you want to achieve? 💖 What are things you would get rid of? 💖 What would you change? 💖 What do I love to do at work? 💖 What do I like to do in my personal life? 💖 What are my natural gifts/talents? 💖 My life’s journey is…💖
Just let your mind wander and scribble your ideas and thoughts down. Jot your favorite inspirational quotes along the side. Add glitter. When you’ve got your ideas across the pages, take a step back. Is there one idea that’s screaming out? Pick out key phases you like and cross out what you don’t. Keep going until you feel you’ve reached the end! Then pop some champagne and make a clean version of it you can see daily!
Need some help? Head over to Franklin Covey and fill out their prompted version. Live by the result or edit it down to fit you. Here’s what mine came up with:
I will try to prevent times when I have a bad day, when things don’t go as planned and I lay in bed sad 💖 I will enjoy my work by finding employment where I can laugh, feel productive, and make money 💖 I will find enjoyment in my personal life through yoga, kissing, cuddling, hiking, feeling the sunshine, eating doughnuts, laughing, going on adventures, feeling giddy, being productive 💖 I can do anything I set my mind to. I will spend all day in a relaxed state of mind; yoga, meditate, eat well, live by the ocean, sketch, sew and design all day 💖 My life’s journey is live creatively, to be happy, to feel loved, to feel at peace with life. My life’s journey is for me, to succeed and to live happily ever after 💖 I will be a person who has lived a full and exciting life, who didn’t do things by the book and blink and realize fifty years had gone by. That succeed in my dreams and loved with all my heart 💖
