Hi there, I’m Mitch, and I’m here to work with you on all aspects of your career and balancing it with your life. I’m sure that at one point or another, you’ve either worked for or researched a company with a mission statement, and I appreciate that in a company. I want to work for a company whose values align with my own. If they don’t, I’d probably be miserable there, and life is too short for that!
I think it’s important to have a personal mission statement as well. When someone asks you why you chose your job or your career, there are a lot of answers that work. You can say, “I like making money,” or “someone has to pay the bills,” or, “I like helping people,” or “I love the rush of closing a deal,” or any number of other things, which is fine in most social situations. Deep in your soul, though, I hope you have a job that you’re passionate about; a career that makes you happy to jump out of bed in the morning (OK, most mornings, we’re all human!) and get to work.
Maybe you know that what you’re doing for work right now isn’t what you want to be doing, and that’s OK, but I hope that creating a personal mission statement will help you start moving in the right direction.
To that end, I’m going to share my mission statement here.
- My mission is to help other women in business love themselves enough to realize that they deserve success in their personal and professional lives, and constantly remind myself that I deserve the same. I’ll do this by purposely reaching out to women both in person, through my career path as a real estate recruiter, and through workmitch.com. I”ll help women dig deep to find their best selves and achieve their dreams. I’ll also help people of all genders reach their goals through the real estate team I’m so passionate about working for.
- I will continuously update my goals as I continue to grow and evolve as a person. I will focus on continuing to bring balance to my days and help other women on that path. I blog under the name of Selfish Mitch because so many women feel that they need to say yes to everything their bosses, their coaches, their coaches, their romantic partners, their friends, and their children ask them to do. We all need to step back and be a little selfish; learn to say “no” to things that we’re not passionate about and can be delegated, or not done at all. This gives us the time and energy to say “yes” to things that light up our souls, thereby becoming a happier, more fulfilled version of ourselves.
- I will blog once a week, at least, continuously and proactively increase my professional skills so I can better serve my team, and create something, even if it’s a little silly, every day. I will focus on self-love, happiness, success and balance every damn day in pursuit of my goals and as a way to help as many people as I can.
I want you to create your mission statement too. Questions? Comments? I’d love to hear from you!
