Several months ago,  we attended an “Ethics” training class, upon leaving the meeting, I had several gold nuggets that I applied to some areas of my life. Contrary to the nuggets I grabbed, one, in particular, stood out “If you wrote a mission statement for your life, what would it say?”.

It was interesting that all my life, I had known about companies and their mission statements however I had never thought about writing one for “My Life”. As a matter of fact, I created one for my nonprofit, Women Of Virtue Transitional Foundation.

Reflecting back on my life, I was not always clear on the “WHAT”, “WHY” and “HOW” as it pertained to my purpose in life. And while it is clear now, I had never taken the time to sit and write down the specifics of what I wanted to do with my life. Today, while watching daughter play, I began to think “What is my mission”?

My mission is to empower, motivate, encourage, and make a difference in someone’s life,
I value what God has designed for my life, and how much he has blessed me with. I have also been blessed with the ability to connect with individuals on a deeper level and while I am not sure how I do this, I know it can only be from God. With these things in mind, I will ponder of my mission statement for “My Life” and I encourage you to do the same…

Our life has a purpose and it should have a mission statement too… What is your MISSION STATEMENT for your life? God created the purpose, now you create the vision and mission statements and carry them out.

Be blessed!
