A personal manifesto is a declaration of what you want in life. It helps you prioritize what’s important to you and what you want to achieve. Think of it as the ultimate bucket list.
So why write one?
A personal manifesto helps keep your priorities focused. It’s written with strong, empowering language so on days you may not feel 100% or when you could use some additional encouragement, you can reminded yourself what you’re capable of, and what you’re working towards. (This can be especially important if what you’re working toward takes a lifetime to achieve!)
A personal manifesto is just that, personal. So don’t think yours needs to look like someone else’s.
Steps to get started:
Incorporate it into your daily routine.
Taking the time to capture your goals on paper helps to clarify what’s important to you. Reading it every morning is a great reminder of what you’re capable of and what you’re working toward.
It’s a lot easier to get where you’re going if you have a map – even if it doesn’t come with directions.
