The Power of The Mission by Shawn Randleman

Good Day #Smartpreneurs! You know too often I see startups with great ideas and the resources to back them, yet they still fail. Without a long-term mission, you can not expect long term successful results. You must understand that it's more than your idea, it's the way your idea impacts others which makes you successful. Let’s explore how important is the mission behind work & life…

WORK

I've seen over the past 14 years, businesses with the craziest ideas and the most limited resources become the Pinterest, Tesla, Airbnb, and Uber of their industries. Why? Their focus was on the mission and how it would benefit others, not just themselves.

Too many times we go to work or start a business for just financial gain! Only a few have set the mission of growing and building a lifestyle that benefits others more than ourselves. Many of the companies such as Pinterest or Airbnb, bigger companies such as Microsoft and even Apple have underestimated the power of ‘Someone On A Mission”. That underestimation has cost them big time!

We’re now on the dawn of a “New Social Economy” which you must care about the clients you engage with, more than your own opinions behind your product or service. Your mission is to solve the problem and fulfill the need. Your business must have a team with a mission to solve a problem to survive in this new competitive marketplace. In return, you will get the lifestyle you desire!


LIFE

More important then your career or business mission is your personal mission in life! Everything is not about MONEY. Before you set any of your career or business goals create a personal mission statement & plan. Your personal mission should reflect what type of lifestyle you want to live that would make you “Happy & Balance”. You also reflect on if “Money Was No Object” what would you do?

Start first by asking yourself if your planning to single or in a relationship. If you're in the relationship understand there is two mission happen at the same time. You will need to support each other on the journey. Finding common goals you share and creating new goals based on each other's mission. Do you have or want kids in the near future? Kids are big life long investment! Do you want to love in another country? Different rules & cultures

BALANCE

I learned a long time ago "You never underestimate the power of someone on a mission!"...
