Mission | SL60-07


Today, we take inspiration from the “super family,” The Incredibles, to illustrate the concept of mission. Each member of the family has a unique way of fulfilling their shared mission of helping others. Similarly, we all make a unique impact on humanity through our actions and work. The first step in uncovering our own mission is through self-knowledge, understanding our temperaments and talents. These traits, unique to each of us, guide us in executing our missions across various life roles, such as personal, professional, and community roles.
