What is your Mission in life?

Yes, it's a heavy question but one worth asking yourself. Have you spent time thinking about what gifts you possess and how to utilize those gifts to the best of your ability?

As I work with corporations to formulate their long term strategic plans I am struck by what a great job we do in the corporate world regarding these issues, yet how little we do as individuals. I ask people to define the "soul" of their company, what they truly stand for. The Core Values that come from this question provides the foundation for what they deem their corporate Mission to be. You can do the same.

By using these two resources you can lay the foundation for your Personal Mission Statement.
We have also included a worksheet for that as well. You have to admit, you don't have too many excuses left!
Think of what it would mean for you to know each day what you stand for and what your Mission in life is.

Take the time to explore what is important to you and use that knowledge to create the perfect path for yourself.

Here's the challenge - commit just 1 hour this week to work on your Mission. Send me an email - Mission Email - with what you have discovered. With your permission, I will share some of these in a future Lantern. Who knows, you may provide great motivation for others to follow your lead.

Personal leadership is a powerful asset. Unleash yours!
