Personal Mission Statements

After reflecting on mission and vision statements on various successful and non-successful organizations, I began to ruminate on what kind of leader I am and where I find myself in the future. These thoughts led me to think about about the importance of having my own personal mission statement.

Having a personal mission statement could help guide us in so many ways, not only as leaders in the world of education. Our personal mission statements could pave the way for how we hold friendships, raise our families, plan our futures, reflect on our past, the possibilities are limitless.

We are all unique and have different beliefs. By developing our own mission statement,  we will then have a foundation and purpose to guide our decisions for our futures.

Consider writing one of our own, you may discover your true self.

Here are a few resources that I found to be helpful:
