These same principles apply in your personal and family life. Family mission statements, or visions, are a way of transferring your highly effective business habits to your home life.
Your family and/or personal vision are the “big picture” of what you want to be. They display your beliefs and values. They are succinct and personal.
I have written a family and personal mission and the goals and objectives to accomplish them.
Writing down our values has led us to talk more about what we want out of our marriage, our family and our lives. I have them prominently displayed in our homes and have had them framed for each of our children.
Goals are lofty ideals that you continue to strive for but may never reach. I continue to reach for my goals every day – sometimes with little or no success – but the next day I pick myself up and start all over again.
Objectives are the specific things that are necessary to accomplish if you are going to reach your goals.
Having a vision has been a roadmap for success in my life. I have included it here for your perusal … I pray that in some small way it may be a positive influence in your life.
