  1. Allegra, you always have words of wisdom, but this post is awesome. It takes people into their personal journey. You always have to keep a check on yourself…always! As we grow, we learn and change. That’s a good thing, because stagnation stinks! The questions you raise makes people take a deeper look at themselves. This is so important in the journey of life. It applies to success, spirituality, interpersonal relationships, every aspect.
    If one doesn’t do this, they can become frustrated or unclear and waste time going down the wrong paths in life.
    BRAVO Allegra! I love this post!
    Blessings,
    Donna

    Allegra, I’ve always found my personal mission statement to be a critical part of living a life of energy and significance. There are a few great books out there on the subject. This next year, after reviewing and refining my own personal mission statement, I want to go through each of my business blogs and define their “personal mission statements” so that I can be even more focused in the value I deliver to my readers.

      Hey Steve,
      Living a life of significance? Love that. Gonna steal it. I’m just letting you know in advance. Have a powerful week! Allegra

    Every company that I have worked for has had their own mission statement which are the standards that you must up hold. It is a great Idea for a person to have their own mission statement. This has nothing to do with your list of goals that you want to reach, but your standards on how you want to live your life. You are setting your own standards for yourself. TTYL

    1. Allegra Sinclair says:

      Hey Marcus,
      Yes, your mission statement can be seen as the ‘how’ and not the ‘what’ of living your life. I like it that I can set my standards instead of having someone else decide that for me. I was always a little rebellious as a child and I guess I’m still working on that. Take care, Allegra

    Have to chuckle- Your suggestion – Don’t forget to consider how well you take of yourself. Even though one of my personal slogans is “balance is the key” and my father’s was “all things in moderation” — it is so easy to get caught up in projects, in the immediate, or in other people’s emergencies. As in no exercise at all for days on end as just one example. I guess that’s your point. Not just have a mission statement, but use it to keep on track, in balance, and under-whelmed.

      Richard,
      I’m glad I made you laugh. I think laughter heals so many ills! My mission statement is a great reminder of what I said was important. I can always change my mind, but the mission statement makes it obvious that I am not living out my stated goals. Take care, Allegra

    Thanks for posting this!!! I have copied the questions and will sit down and make a mission statement. I have heard of doing this before, was never sure quite how to. I know basically what it is, just never wrote it down. I know the power of writing things down.
    Thanks again!!!

    Have a Great Day!
    Chester

  6. Lovely message Allegra. I’ve read about creating a personal mission statement but the one’s I’ve seen have all been pretty vague and flowery so haven’t been motivated to take action I guess. I do have a couple of mantras that I hold dear to me and that basically encompass my philosophy on life. 1) Challenge assumptions, practice empathy and seek to understand. And 2) Live boldly, take risks, make somebody say, where the hell did THAT come from?! Thanks for the inspiration.

    I like your mission statement Allegra. It’s a great list to go by. Knowing why you’ve been blessed and the people you love is the foundation of life. Those are my favorites. It makes everything else have a purpose and a meaning to bring what you can to others. I also like your suggestion to read a book everyday. Being on the go all the time I personally like to use podcasts on my cell phone. I never knew how much you can learn nowadays to expand your mind and give to others. Great advice on how to maximize a personal mission statement. Thanks Allegra.

  8. Allegra, that was a perfect post! I think personal mission statements are so important. I’ve always had one, but have sometimes gone months without referencing it and I notice it makes a big difference. I personally need it in my face as a daily reminder to stay on track with my goals even when times are tough. I like your reminder how taking care of yourself physically is very important. As an entrepreneur I often forget everything but my work, but you are so right that everything is interconnected and one area going askew throws all the entire balance in all aspects of you life!

      Hi Jenna,
      Thanks! Have you made a change to where you keep your mission statement so that you see it more often? I’d love to hear your tip.
      Have a powerful week! Allegra
