Personal development is the single most important thing you can do to improve your business. A personal mission statement also is extremely helpful in establishing and maintaining this focus in your personal life.
Many entrepreneurs have taken the time to create organizational mission statements. But few have gone through this process on a personal level. If you have not created a personal mission statement, now is the time to do so.
Set aside some undisturbed time to think through and write your statement. Take some extended time away from the distractions of home and office to reflect on where you are and how you desire to invest your life in the context of work, family, friends and your community.
It is important to address all these areas of your life and to balance each. True success comes only when you have a balanced lifestyle of success, family, friends, true happiness and personal health. To become a highly successful leader, you must achieve this overall balance in your life.
