Developing A Personal Mission Statement:
In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey, the author presented to the readers the idea of writing a personal mission statement. A personal mission statement “is like the blueprint to your life” writes Covey, “It is your secret document. So make it sing!”
A personal mission statement has the ability to help people actually see what they want to accomplish in life, allowing their goals to become more real to them. Having goals drawn or written down can assist them in thinking about how to reach those goals and then acting on the thoughts produced; making their goals a reality. A mission statement will continually inspire the people who create them to reach their ambitions and make the mark they would like to make on the world.
