My Personal Mission

6 Sep

It is week two of the Housley Principled Leadership Program and the students are drafting their personal mission statements. Many of us struggle to articulate our purpose and are subject to being bounced around by things that happen to us in life. A strong mission grounded in values provides us a guidepost in difficult times. Here is my current personal mission statement:

“My purpose in life is to help extraordinary young leaders reach their potential.

I wish to lead by example by adhering to a strong set of core values while pursuing ventures and adventures that create opportunities for others. I value hard work, the pursuit of knowledge, civic responsibility, financial prudence, entrepreneurship, adventure, exploration, laughter, friendship, and fun.

I want to be an influential and selfless person of consequence that leaves a positive legacy of enhancing the lives of all those that come into my orbit. Unless I am snow skiing or hiking, I prefer to do all these things somewhere hot.”
