Who I Will to Be

A personal mission statement is a person's inspirational vision for one’s life in written form.  For me it's supposed to be larger than life, inspiring, and emotive because it is something that is worth making real, rather than the babbling of an egomaniac.

  • I will love as wastefully as I can.  
  • I will be the servant leader in the model Jesus taught.  
  • I will appreciate my strength, power, and intelligence with a strong dose of humility.  
  • I will hone my body with the martial arts, my mind with unceasing learning, and my spirit by grasping for God.
  • I will slough off all the personal chains that prevent me from realizing my potential.   
  • I will be instrumental in breaking the chains of poverty and injustice in our lifetimes.

St. Ignatius' Prayer for Generosity

Lord Jesus, teach me to be generous.

Teach me to serve you as you deserve,

To give and not to count the cost,

To fight and not to heed the wounds,

To toil and not to seek for rest,

To labor and not to seek reward,

Except that of knowing that I do your will.
