I love to discover; I love to help others discover. Discovery of core Self, life Purpose, Vision, and Mission marshals intellect, insight, and creativity. This sort of discovery answers those big life questions: Who am I? Why am I here? We gain a sense of significance, unity, and love. And much more. Through my writing, speaking, and workshops, I help others discover along with me.
This is my mission statement, which I tweak occasionally. Why do I share this here? The last two nights I wrote about the three crucial experiences of discovery of core Self, life Purpose, and Vision. Now, it is time to consider the Mission.
My mission reveals the character of core Self and the expression of core Self as Discovery. My vision is to express Self through communication, especially as a writer. My mission rolls all of this together — an overall statement of who I am, why I am here, and what I’m going to do to make Self known through writing.
As I have said before, no rights or wrongs are implied, nor is any particular order. These steps provide a framework to help us in our thinking about how we want our Heart-energized, Heart-centered, Heart-operated life to take form.
Our mission clearly characterizes our vision. How do we want Self to be known? What will you do? How will you relate to others as your vision is realized? What might be hopes for expected results of carrying out the mission? How could someone describe us from our mission statement? Any number of related questions could help us formulate our mission statement.
Mission statements can help us clarify exactly what it is we want. They don’t need to be published; they can just be for us. However, if our passion, which I will deal with tomorrow, carries us forward, often we would want a more formal statement because it could be the basis of a career or entrepreneurial business.
However or wherever we record it, the clarity of the mission statement engages the magic of the law of attraction. Mission becomes our focus, and clear, concentrated focus attracts the vibrational matches of the energies of life. Spirit responds to that little part of itself in us, that core Self, and miracles multiply.
Work, however, needs to be done. And it’s really ineffective to just wing it. We will take a look at that tomorrow.
Blessings in crystallizing that marvelous essence of You! Make yourSelf a Mission!
