1193 Words5 Pages
Philosophy and Goals My philosophy and goals are not something that I have sat and pondered, not until something happens in my life that makes me take a step back and examine who I am and what I want out of life. In order to find that out, I will need to reflect upon what my purpose or mission in life is and how it relates to the way I conduct myself and the choices I make. I have set goals throughout my life, but I need to make sure they are laid out in such a way that working towards them promotes my mission. There may prove to be difficulties along the way that I will have to overcome, however if I hold true to my belief in my purpose, I can accomplish my goals and fulfill my mission. Mission Statement My mission in life has changed over the years. It started out very simple, it was to just have a job in order to pay for the fun activities that I wanted to take part in. Once I was a little older, it grew into wanting to a better job so I could afford a car, a house and nice things to furnish the house with. Now that I’m even older and hopefully a little wiser, my family has become my focus. My mission is to be a good example for my children and grandchildren. Letting them see how education can better your life by qualifying you for that higher paying job. That hard work will reward you with the capabilities to provide the necessities as well as the luxuries in life. And that giving back will ground you spiritually and will make you emotionally happier and healthier.
