Mission is an inner urge to pursue an activity or perform a service. It is a calling. It is what you intend to do or achieve. It is what we desire. It is what we want to be.
Your mission statement can be a list of values, like Benjamin Franklin’s or it can be a paragraph, a series of sentences, a story, a symbol or a few short words. It is up to your creativity.

Wisdom On Following Your Life Mission
“Don’t aim at success – the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as a by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than one’s self. In the long run, success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it.” Viktor Frankl
