Mission Statements Can be Used For

Life Or Business

Whether you are starting a business or you are setting down and developing your life goals. It is a good idea to write out your mission statement and vision statement.


The reason a vision or mission statement is important in life and business is it a the ground work. Something to go back to if you find that you feel like you are straying away and lost not knowing what steps to take next. Always go back to this statement to help to know what your ultimate goal is for your life or business.

Keep It Simple

Keep your statement simple, one or two sentences is all that you need. Be clear and concise. If your mission statement is for life try to set out what would be your perfect goal in the next 1 to 3 years. If it is for your business what is it that you would like to see to provide to your customers.

If your statement includes a emotional feeling when you read it you know you are on the right track. If there is no emotional response then you may want to reword it.

Mission Statements are Fluid

Your mission statement does not have to stay the same, it can be changed and developed as your life or your business develops. mission statement

Do not feel that you need to have your mission statement completed the moment you sit down. For some it can take quite sometime to develop their personal statement.

Write it Down

Start by writing down some of your roles in life. Do you want to continue on with those roles? Do you want to improve upon those roles? Are there areas that you are not satisfied that you would like to develop?

Writing down notes and ideas and looking at other examples of statements can help with the development of your own statement.
