Identify Your Purpose, Define Your Life

This Challenge is essential to identifying your purpose and developing your personal mission statement. Identifying your purpose will help you navigate your path throughout your life. A significant part of the challenge is to share your mission statement with others. This is particularly important as feedback will help you to grow.

Identify your purpose

Your first task is to consider your purpose. The lessons provided here (How to get to your why and Tips to Find Your Purpose) will help you to dig deep and come up with your purpose.

Create your personal mission statement

Now you are ready to define your personal mission statement, aligned with your purpose. You'll complete lessons that give you the tools to create a thoughtful statement and confidently write it down.

Analyze company mission statements

Next, you'll find and analyze the mission statements of 3 to 5 companies. Get inspired by the companies whose values you align with and gain clarity.

Challenge discussion

After comparing the 3-5 company mission statements with your own, you'll participate in lively conversations with your peers and mentors to evaluate them. Get ready to reflect and make changes to your mission statement.

Share your personal mission statement

Finally, you'll refine and extend your personal mission statement based on the  comments from your peers, what you have learned from the company mission statements, and the input from the challenge discussion.
