There are plenty of entities in the world that have mission statements. Nearly everyone in the world has mission statements, which is a statement of purpose or vision and values of a company, organization or person. So with that being said there are all kinds of statements. People, businesses, and even religious entities make personal mission statements.MineI haven’t thought of my complete mission statement in life, but if I had to make one it would include a few things. “Continually improve myself while making a positive impact on my friends, family, and the community.”ExamplesBack in my hometown I used to work at The Youth Center which was an after school program for kids. While working there I tried to make a positive impact on the kids and work with them on certain things to improve them. I taught one particular kid basics of basketball and a few moves, whom I became pretty close with. I also became close with some other kids who went there and tried to make an impact in their lives in various ways as well. I haven’t worked there for some time now but go back and visit every now and then. I recently went back and visited and noticed a kid that I haven’t seen before. He seemed to be down and out / upset. I went up to him and made friends with him; played basketball with him and talked to him. After that I could see a change in his mood. There was also a boy shooting basketball there who wasn’t doing so well. I gave him some advice with the form of his shot. He started shooting better after some time and was excited. The next time I visited he was shooting and asked me if I remembered that I taught him how to shoot. I hope to impact someone in a good way with any chance that I get.Vision for the FutureEveryone has dreams and aspirations for the future. One part of my mission statement was to continually improve myself. I plan to do so by staying in good physical condition and also to continually learn things. In May of 2013 I plan on completing my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. After that I will have a job lined up for myself. Another part o my mission statement was to make a positive impact on the community. I would like to volunteer some of my time to going to the Youth Center and being involved with kids from the community there. I have also always been passionate about basketball. I would like to be involved in a basketball program at either the junior high or high school.If you were to create a mission statement for yourself, what would it be? What are you passionate about in your life? What is your vision for yourself in the future? What do you value in life?
