Career- How A Personal Mission Statement Helps

By: CD Mohatta

Which career should I choose? How to know if my present career suits me? Whether I will be satisfied with my present career? Will my career give me enough money in future? There are many questions that hammer our mind when we join a career. Even after we join that, the questions do not leave us alone. We are always raising queries about our career. This is true about many other areas of life. But how to know if our career is fitting our needs? Let us see how a personal mission statement can help.

Personal mission statement- what is a personal mission statement? How does one write the statement? What are the factors one considers while making a mission statement? You must have seen mission statements by some companies. Some of them may say- total quality control is our ultimate mission or customer satisfaction is the goal of this company or we want to raise the returns to the shareholders every year. These are some examples of mission statement of companies. Personal mission statement is similar to that except that it involves only you. What is your ultimate goal in life?

Some of the personal mission statement may be-

1. I want to be known as a kind soul
2. I wish to earn more money everyday.
3. I want to excel in my profession
4. I want to be known as a great friend
5. My family will always be more important than my career.

And so on. Write down all that you desire in life. Then put them in the order of importance. The most important of the statements becomes your personal mission statement. Do not hold your imagination while writing. Give freedom to your mind to think. That will help bring out your latent desires. Once you know your personal mission statement, find out which career will be best in achieving that.
