State Your Mission
In the book of Ephesians Paul wrote "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10). God has a purpose for your life, do you know what it is? You can choose to ignore that purpose or pursue it. I promise that when you pursue it, you will find a sense of fulfillment like you've never felt before. You will wake up and think "I was born to do this!" Now that's a sign you've found your passion! Now sit down and write out your mission statement while you're excited! Click here for some examples for inspiration.
Sync Your Work with Your Mission
If you aren't personally connected with the work you do and getting joy from it, your business will likely never see the success you hope and dream of. If it's already successful, does it give you true joy? Your business must be connected to something greater than you, to your life's mission! When it isn't we think, "did it make a difference to the world?" Remember that your mission isn't just for you, it's for God! He designed you to contribute to the world in a way that no one else ever has or ever will, find out what that is and chase it like a crazy person!
