Steps To Creating A Personal Mission Statement
We have a few examples to show you concerning how to make a mission statement, but first there are a few helpful steps to follow...
Our Video
After all of that talking...
Sit back.
Enjoy a video that we made for you.
Bryant Mission Statement
Bryant is a student-centered university focused on academic excellence that prepares its students to achieve their personal best in life and their chosen professions through:

* Challenging academic programs offered by faculty members prominent in their fields,
* A culturally enriching campus life that encourages personal growth,
* Corporate and business experiences and affiliations,
* The integration of advanced technology into the curriculum, and
* The cultivation of a global perspective through course work and student-life activities.

Bryant’s Mission Statement is a product of the institution’s community-wide strategic planning effort, which is an ongoing process; thus the mission will be subject to periodic review and revision as needed
Begin With The End In Mind
Beginning with the end in mind means "to start with a clear understanding of your destination".
If you know where you are going, you will better understand where you are now, and then take the right steps to reach your destination.
If we manage ourselves daily based on a picture of our goal, we will more likely make the better choices in life that will lead us to that goal.
"We may be very busy, we may be very efficient, but we will also be truly effective only when we begin with the end in mind" -Stephen R. Covey
This meaning, As efficient as we may be or as on top of our work as we may be, we are only effective or successful from our efforts when we have that goal in mind.

Explain why the two scenes differed
Why was Meghan either missed or not missed? What did she do that lead to both reactions to her death?
All Things Are Created Twice
There is a mental and physical Creation to all things...
1st Creation is Mental
2nd Creation is Physical
"Measure Twice, Cut Once"
When building a home, you create it in detail before you hammer the first nail into place.
You get a very clear sense of what kind of house you want; if you want sliding door, a porch, a family room, etc.
You then create the blueprint based on these ideas before you start to build. If you start to build before making the blueprint, then the second creation (physically beginning to build) you will be stuck making expensive changes.
By Design or Default
"If we don't develop our own self awareness, and become responsible for first creations we empower other people outside our circle of influence to shape much of our lives by default" -Stephen R. Covey
There is a 1st creation in every part of our lives.
If we are no the 2nd creation of our own proactive design, we are the 2nd creation of circumstances, peoples past habits ,or peoples agendas.
Leadership and Management
Management is the 2nd creation
It is the bottom line focus: How can I best accomplish certain things?
Leadership is the 1st creation
It is the top line focus: What are the things I want to accomplish?

" Management is doing things right; Leadership is doing the right things." -Peter Drucker & Warren Bennis
Re-scripting: Becoming Your Own First Creator
We are already living with multiple scripts, so the process of of writing our own scripts is considered re-scripting aka paradigm shifting
Changing the paradigms that we already have
........Re-scripting is considered putting to use self awareness, imagination, and conscience to exercise personal leadership
........There are scripts that aren't representative of what we value in life, but we have the power to change those scripts.

"Because I am self aware, because I have imagination and conscience, I can examine my deepest values. I can realize that the script I'm living is not in harmony with those values, that my life is not the product of my own proactive design, but the design of the first creation I have deferred to circumstances and other people." - Stephen R. Covey
What you want to be
What you want to do
Contributions & Achievements
Personal Mission Statements will reflect an individuals
uniqueness in both content and form.
These Statements are focused on.......
" The most effective way I know to begin with the end in mind is to develop a personal mission statement or philosophy or creed." -Stephen R. Covey

Personal Mission Statement
Our Centers Are The Sources Of...
Acting based on your own values rather then being acted upon by other people or circumstances
Between extreme insecurity and having a deep sense of self worth and personal security
Dependence on the social mirror to strong inner direction
Distorted map of life to a clear and accurate map of life wherein all parts and principles fit together

Alternative Centers..
What defines our life; what we let our lives revolve around
Spouse and Family Centeredness
Spouse Centeredness:
"Marriage can be the most intimate, the most satisfying, the most enduring growth- producing of human relationships" it is such a powerful and emotional relationship that it is easily a common center; we grow dependent on that relationship
Family Centeredness:
"...seems to be natural and proper. an area of focus and deep investment, it provides great opportunities for deep relationships, for loving, for sharing, for much that makes life worthwhile." parents with this center can cause them to override their children s long term growth and investment
Money and Work Centeredness
Money Centeredness.
Some peoples lives are making money; physical survival and financial security come first
Put aside family or other priorities, expecting others to understand that economic stability comes first
Work Centeredness
Driving themselves to produce at the sacifice of health, relationships, and other important factors in our lives

Possession and Pleasure Centeredness
Possession Centeredness
Possessions include not only tangible objects (clothes, boats, homes, jewelry, etc) but also intangible objects (fame, glory, social prominence)
"Most of us are aware through our own experience, how singularly flawed such a center is, simply because it can vanish rapidly and is influenced by so many forces
Pleasure Centeredness
Media influences our lives too heavily; they increase peoples expectations
It portrays that people should live a life of ease and "fun" when pleasure really doesn't always bring positive effects if it isn't used in moderation
"We live in a world where instant gratification is available and encouraged"
Friend and Enemy Centeredness
Friend Centeredness
The feeling of belonging to a friend or social group
Most common in, but not exclusive to, younger generations
Focuses on one person- making it very similar to a marriage center
Enemy Centeredness
When someone is so commonly arguing or in constant conflict with someone, it is easy to make that enemy the center of their lives; not many people would ever admit to it but it is a very common center
constantly reacting to the enemies opinions values and beliefs instead of worrying about their own
Church and Self Centeredness
Church Centeredness
" There are some people that get so busy in church worship and projects that they become insensitive to the pressing human needs that surround them.." -Stephen R. Covey
Self Centeredness
The most common center today
The thought that the self is more important than any other relationship or person; selfishness

Winner may a PRIZE...
