Defining who you are and what your purpose is in life helps focus your resources and choices.
Trying to get to sleep my mind had other priorities, I was invited to an unwanted creativity brainstorming event as my mind wanted to know what my vision and mission statements were for my business.
A vision statement is where you want to be in the future. Amazon has a vision statement as follows:
“Our [Amazon’s] vision is to be earth’s most customer centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online.”
A mission statement is a declaration of why you exist, what your purpose is. Ben and Jerrys has the following mission statement for its products:
“Product Mission: To make, distribute and sell the finest quality all natural ice cream and euphoric concoctions with a continued commitment to incorporating wholesome, natural ingredients and promoting business practices that respect the Earth and the Environment.”
Once my mind was allowed to review my vision statement, my mission statements, motto and values; plus turned my business into a large bird with the head and two wings representing three divisions of my business I was allowed to get to sleep.
Lesson here is that every individual can create a vision statement, mission statement(s), motto, values and a logo to represent your own self and life, to show to the world who you are. Many animals have evolved colour and shape to display to the world who or what they are, so every human can do the same.
Another lesson is when creativity comes let it have its way and flow through you, by doing so you benefit as I now will from the uninvited brainstorming before sleep last night.
