My Mission Statement
“A mission statement is a short statement of an organization’s purpose, what its overall goal is.”
Most people accept the mission statement of the company they work for or of the school they attend. Going all in in working tirelessly to make sure that the goal and its mission statement are followed to the T. So why then do families or more importantly individuals not have a mission statement defining their reason for being and a goal for how they live their life?
The answer to that question is simple, there is no valid answer. If a family does not have a mission statement, then I will show you a family that has more challenges then those who do. Show me an individual without a purpose, someone who does not have goals and I will show you a person whose life is not quite where they would like it to be.
“Without a mission statement, you may get to the top of the ladder and then realize it was leaning against the wrong building!” ~ Dave Ramsey
