A personal mission statement is a written declaration of your core purpose, and what your priorities are.
It is different from a 'vision' statement and is a briefing on what you would be doing, not what you would be achieving.
A well-thought-out mission statement provides everyone with your core leadership values and priorities. It identifies the general direction of your actions to you and your team.
It also can vocalize your priorities to your team when you are not physically present.
Determine your core values, key traits, and beliefs.
Ask yourself what you believe to be necessary to succeed, and what traits you wish to see and not see in others. Clarify each aspect with yourself and be concise in creating the mission statement.
The actual execution of what your core values are, a demonstration of your personal mission statement, is crucial. If your daily actions, practices and directives do not match up with what you have envisioned, they are useless.
A mission statement provides people with information on who you are as a person, and it should align with your daily decisions.
Looking through the most important goals, find the common thread and draft a plan of action for your life, a compelling Mission Statement, taking as much time as you want. Let it sit there for a few days and do not think about it.
Review the statement after a few days, see if it carries the magic that can be a guiding torch of your life, making any changes if required.
