28 Please open your leadership notebook to the “personal mission statement” tab During this class period, you will be creating your own personal mission statement.
29 What is a Personal Mission Statement? Reflects your Key:ValuesPrinciplesSense of purpose and meaning for your life.Your Personal Mission Statement in a sense becomes your “personal constitution” that gives you meaning and direction to life.
30 Steps for Writing Personal Mission Statement 1. Reflect on the key values and principles you want to use as a guide for your life. Values may vary among us, but correct principles are shared by all people of good will.
31 Steps for Writing Personal Mission Statement 2. Ponder questions like: What do you want your life to be about in order to give it purpose and meaning? Think about how much better this world would be if each person were dedicated to lifting the lives of everyone we touch.
32 Steps for Writing Personal Mission Statement 3. “Brainstorm” with yourself, parents, relatives, teachers,, counselors and friends about your strengths, talents, deep-felt values and principles which are most important to you.Read biographies of people you admire.Take personality/aptitude/vocational tests.
33 Steps for Writing Personal Mission Statement 4. View your personal Mission Statement as your “Personal Constitution” Like the Constitution of a country, your Personal Mission Statement can be amended over time if so inspired. It will always reflect your fundamental values, purposes and principles which will guide you through the thousands of decisions you will make in your lifetime.
34 Steps for Writing Personal Mission Statement 5. Find a quiet place, inside or outside where you can spend some quality uninterrupted time pondering and reflecting in order to write your Personal Mission Statement. It need not be too long - no more than a page or a few paragraphs. It should inspire you and cause you to stretch but not break.
35 Steps for Writing Personal Mission Statement 6. Ask, “Does this statement inspire me?” While it does not totally reflect where you are today, it helps you to stretch to become better and is a guide as you make it difficult decision. Write in the “present tense” as if you are doing it. You will enjoy the “power of purpose” as a result of getting a vision of what you want your life to be.
37 STEPHEN COVEY said…“We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals.”

39 Maintaining the Interactive Student Leadership Notebook No ripped out pages or torn cornersNo doodling that doesn’t relate to notesDate, title and number each pageWork must be neat and readable. Do your best at all times.
40 How long should it take to work on my notebook? Normally class time is given to work on the right side assignments and sometimes this includes time to work on a left side. The expectation is that you will revisit your right side or the next day review the material by completing a left side leadership activity. Once you have a good understanding of the kinds of left side activities that can be done, it should take you about 15 minutes to complete a left side.
41 IncentivesEach time the notebook is reviewed you will have the opportunity to win a “STORM” BuckNotebook checks are unannounced and can occur at any random time during the school year. If you are absent, please make plans to attend tutorials. You may use teachers notebook to complete your missed leadership assignment. Ask for help when needed.
