Some time back when I was working on my personal vision and mission statement, I did an exercise that was meant to give me action words that could later be applied to my personal statements.

My vision and mission statements are featured on my blog. In case you missed them, they are:

VISION: Igniting the power and passion in others…

MISSION: I relate with, promote and speak community wherever I am…

~

But today I just want to share about one part of the process that led to these statements.

In this exercise, I had to choose which element (Earth, Water, Air and Fire) I most related to.

I chose Fire.

The next step was to think about the characteristics of fire and write them out as if they described me.

Below is what I ended up with:

I, Diana, am Fire

Burning

Bright

Blazing

Renewing

Spreading

Consuming

Orange

Red

White

Blue

Powerful

Hungry

Warming

Wild

Catchy

Then I had to write down what fire does as if it was what I do.

I burn, warm, light, mesmerize, dance, crackle, hunger

I purify, save, destroy, comfort and excite.

~

I, Diana, am Fire

Igniting the power

And passion in others

I give warmth

On cold, wintry nights,

And clear the way

For new beginnings.

It was truly a self-discovering journey for me and eventually led to the writing of my vision and mission statements.

Which of the four elements best describes you?

What are its characteristics?

Can you apply them to yourself?
