Sheréa VéJauan's Tips on Creating Your Life's Mission Statement

A mission statement challenges you to examine your values, interests, and priorities. This also includes thinking about your death and your legacy. To achieve the best results in your life, a mission statement is essential.

There is no unique formula or format for creating your personal mission statement, but the following guidelines may be helpful:

  1. Make a decision as to what kind of person you want to be.
  2. Read habit 2 in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
  3. Find examples online to inspire you.
  4. Put it into words. Make sure it's concise, simple and clear.
  5. Post it where it's easily visible.

Keep in mind that your mission statement is not set in stone. Your life plan will continue to change as you gain insight into yourself and what you want from each aspect of it.
