What is your manifesto? What is your mission statement? Why do you do what you do? These are important thoughts to ponder. When people make a conscious choice to genuinely connect with you.. they will want to know the answer to this question. Why does your business exist? What’s at the heart of you? If you already have this for your business then what about for your family? What is your families mission statement? What is the glue that binds you and the northern star you search for in the times of darkness?
I created a family mission statement around 7 years ago? I thought, “my business has a manifesto and so should what I value the most”. So I thought, pondered and considered what I wanted my family to stand for. This statement is now a guiding light in our home. I have spoken it to my daughter since birth and now she recites some of it, although quite amusing and mixed at times.
So here is my very personal statement of the value my family brings to each other and the world we are so blessed to be a part of!
Kirby Family Mission Statement
“We have a great time, we see and do wondrous things & the world is a better place because we are here. We are magnets for infinite abundance, divine intelligence and unlimited love. We serve and add value to all life that is placed in our path!”
My challenge to you… 2012 is coming up fast. Commit to the creation of a standard you and your family choose to live by. If your business is still struggling with an identity, then put your think tank to work. Make 2012 your greatest year ever.
If you want, post your manifesto below.. let’s all share and ad value to each other this season!
