We’ve spoken about personal mission statements here. How do we identify a personal statement? How can we discover our unique mission?

Recently, I learned some tips that help prepare us to discover our mission:

  • Pray for our respective higher power’s guidance.
  • Write responses to these questions: When we are our happiest, what are we doing? How do we feel?
  • Consider this point: When we are our happiest, what character trait (or traits) and values come out? For example, kindness? Truth? Strength?
  • Research where we can use these traits and values in our life. Which careers use these traits? Which volunteer activities would match these values?

Then we will be on the path to identifying our unique mission.
