Are You On A Mission?

January 6, 2010

About 25 years ago Dad came up with a Mission Statement for himself and his company:

“To be the Difference Maker in the personal, family, and business lives of enough people to make a positive difference in America.”

Since that time he has lived every day of his life to fulfill his mission.

Along the way he slightly changed the mission statement.  About 17 years ago the word spiritual was added.

“To be the Difference Maker in the personal, family, business, and spiritual lives of enough people to make a positive difference in America.”

Soon after that “and the world” was added.

“To be the Difference Maker in the personal, family, business, and spiritual lives of enough people to make a positive difference in America and the world.

About ten years ago we changed the word business to professional.
“To be the Difference Maker in the personal, family, professional, and spiritual lives of enough people to make a positive difference in America and the world.”

Two things you can learn from this:

Dad’s achievements and legacy didn’t just happen.  He is on a Mission.
There is no downside to having a Mission Statement because you can change it for the better anytime you want.
