The most successful individuals in the world share many commonalities. They’re passionate, they wake up early and they constantly strive to better themselves. And in order to do these things, they must first maintain a high level of focus on who they are and where they want to go. This is where their personal mission statement comes into play. Amidst the noise and conflicts and distractions that come along with everyday life, their personal mission statement serves as the common thread that hold them together and keep them balanced. It is what can separate the good from the great.
