Taking care of yourself-Part IV

I have heard people often say and I have said as well that this person or that person has not yet found himself. Think about that statement what does it really mean to you?

If you think you haven't "found yourself" yet, may I make a few suggestions?
1. Begin with the "end in mind"-Stephen Covey. How do you want to be remembered? What do you want others to think of when they think of you?
2. Make a vision statement for your life. A statement about you in the future. Where do you plan to be in the future?
3. Develop a mission statement. It is the steps that you will need to take to get to your personal vision. Take some time and contemplate your purpose and values to develop your mission statement.

If you feel like you've found yourself, are you feeling fulfilled as you take the steps necessary to reach your personal vision? If not, do the three steps above again. Maybe it's time to refresh your vision and mission statements.

To thine own self, be true.
