Mission Statement Vs. Vision Statement

Do you have a personal mission statement and vision statement? Do you have a picture of what you want your life — and the world around you — to look like in the future? And does that drive the details of your life activities? Or is your life just random occurrences and haphazard events that keep you trekking along blindly — a life driven by the immediate demands and needs, with no larger plan and e; long-term goals directing you to a greater destination?

The vital importance for a vision and mission in life cannot be overstated. Take any entity or organization. The first step in any successful and efficient business is establishing a mission and vision statement. No enterprise can succeed or function without one. And yet when it comes to our personal lives many of us never gave the idea much thought. Not due to our own fault; we simply were never taught the necessity of having a vision and mission in life, let alone — implementing it. We often just allow life to happen to us, instead of allowing ourselves to direct our life’s trajectory. We are reactive instead of proactive.

Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson for this essential and life changing discussion on developing the focal point that connects all the spokes of your life. Discover the necessity — and even more so the power — of a personal mission and vision statement. Learn how to craft a mission and vision, and how to actualize it in your life — realizing your greatest dreams and aspirations.

I loved this message! A personal mission statement, the ultimate organizing principle of our lives, defining the purpose of our existence on Earth. Simple and seemingly obvious given the endless availability of personal growth knowledge. But this is the first time I’ve heard it identified and defined. I’m in an intense stage of spiritual growth and the cohesive blueprint you propose – that responds to a deeper commandment that we uncover the Why of our existence – speaks volumes to me.
Thank you and many blessings for your own mission! Madelyn Farr
