Random Acts of Facilitating Inspirational Fitness Moments To Help Others Move Through Life And Sport? The Mission Statement Homework Assignment.
Wednesday, May 31, 2023
The Mission Statement. Not the Mission nor Mission Impossible but the Mission Statement. In my workout post's I've been talking about how I try to find Random Acts of Fitness in my daily life in relation to my Mission Statement. Yesterday after posting my workout and my Random Acts of Fitness after my drive in I cam across a news story in my Google Alerts on Fitness:
Inspiring Others! That's it. I had been thinking over my own Mission Statement and how my work is related and how I can use that to motivate me on the tough days at work. To focus on how my work relates to my own Mission Statement I could stay on track and continue to love my job. The problem was that my Mission Statement for years hasn't changed that much although I have and my career path has. My most recent Mission Statement was "To Help Others Move Through Life and Sport." But was I really "helping"? I over see two recreation facilities that yes have a few Walk Away The Pound Classes, Yoga Classes, Pickleball, Tennis and a few other things but was I "helping" or was I "facilitating"? Somehow "Facilitating Others Move Through Life and Sport" doesn't sound right. I spent maybe 10 minutes on my phone looking up synonyms for Facilitating and just didn't like the sound of any of them. But that headline "Inspiring Others"? I liked it and changed my twitter bio to "INSPIRING OTHERS TO MOVE THROUGH LIFE AND SPORT".
For now that works. I still think I need something that is more about facilitating cuz' by working at a center that provides movement opportunities but not actually teaching or outwardly promoting am I really INSPIRING? I don't need an answer today cuz' as I remind myself everyday it's "PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION".
This morning in my Facebook Memories and Timehop I came across and old post of mine. Okay not mine but Ideafit Social Post that I use to pay for but don't anymore. Here is the Mission Statement Assignment that I followed and follow today:
What is it that sets your soul on fire? What do you find yourself daydreaming about? Do you feel deep down that you know what your purpose is? Have you ever tried writing a "personal mission statement"? If you've never tried this as an exercise, I highly recommend it. Once you get clear on your purpose, you can take a closer look at your daily actions. Do your choices align with your goals? Is there anything in your life that isn't serving your higher purpose? Assess. Adjust. And take another step closer to your greatest life.
I really do believe this little assignment has changed my outlook to the better over the last year. I may not be at my greatest life but I'm one step closer as it's PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION.
Oh yeah and the workout...
