Mission Statement

by David Hartsough (2014-04-03)

Preface

In 2014 I tried to write my first mission statement. Here lie my attempts to break down all my thoughts on what I want to do with my life, what I want to contribute to, and what the world needs. As you may notice, brevity is not my strength when it comes to creating a concise statement.

Recent

To be engaged in personal interests,

to connect, communicate, understand and relate with others,

to evaluate what is most meaningful and important,

to achieve personal goals,

to be confident and calm, to share laughter and love,

and to help, encourage, motivate and inspire others to do likewise.

share laughter, love and connection,

achieve, reflect, evaluate

and help others to do so.

Help, encourage, motivate, and inspire individuals

to be engaged and involved in individual interests, and fascinations,

to join together in understanding, relation, connection, and communication,

to understand and evaluate what is most valuable, meaningful, important, and significant,

to understand, evaluate and achieve individual goals, aims, objectives, and purposes,

to be confident and calm,

Perception shapes reality -- Reality is a result of intention and attention.

Expectations

relationships - perception, meaning, expectations

Outside circumstances do not matter

ONLY requires the right perspective, mindset, frame of mind, internal state, internal disposition

and is therefore a CHOICE

you have to be with yourself 24/7 -- gotta find a way to love yourself / accept yourself -- comparisons -- quote -- personal -- exercise, diet, rest

to be engaged in personal interests,

to connect, communicate, understand and relate with others,

to evaluate what is most meaningful and important,

to achieve personal goals,

to be confident and calm, to share laughter and love,

and to help, encourage, motivate and inspire others to do likewise

Deep reflection is vital in helping us break away from our selfishness and individualism and move toward love, compassion, connection, oneness and happiness.

realization that we are connected
