How to Get What You Really Want - Week 4

Mike Popenhagen



Get a Vision for Your Life?

  • Live
  • Love
  • Learn  
  • Leave a Legacy

Proverbs 4:26
Give careful thought to the path for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways.

Hab 2:2
Write down the vision and make it plan on tablets

What is Leadership?

Leadership is defined as “The capacity to lead”, “The act or an instance of leading” 
True Leadership is not: a position, a birthright, able to be bought.


What is Personal Leadership?

“The capacity to lead ones self”,  “The act or a sustaining time of leading ones self”.

What happens when there is a lack of personal leadership?

  • Lack of personal fulfillment 
  • Lack of feeling of accomplishment
  • Lack of self-esteem
  • Lack of find and executing God’s plan for your life
  • Breakdown in family
  • Breakdown in marriage
  • Poor example passed along to the next generation


Proverbs 29:18
Where there is no revelation (vision) the people cast off restraint


Creating a Personal Mission Statement is key to personal leadership development!


Your Purpose - Your Mission Statement

A personal mission statement is a brief description of what you are about.  It should describe elements of your character, values, roles, and passions.

It should tell others of what you intend to accomplish in your lifetime.  It is a declaration of your intentions to leave your mark on the world.


Creating Your Mission Statement

One of the most effective ways to go about creating a personal mission statement is to plan time when you can be totally alone – away from phones, friends, family, or any other distractions.  

Nature can provide one of the best environments for this activity.  It creates the conditions where you can clear your mind and try to really open up to you innermost feelings.  The most important thing is to really get into your deep life and think about what matters most.
