10 Sample Enneagram Type Five Personal Mission Statements

Most people don’t have a personal mission statement which is why I am including some here
based on each Enneagram type’s innate gifts, talents, interests and values. A personal mission
statement is nothing more than a brief written statement of your overall purpose in life, your
personal vision for who you want to be in and for the world. Helen Keller once said, “The most
pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but has no vision.” I would use the word
pitiable (as in evoking compassion) instead of pathetic but otherwise I agree with her. Without a
“why” to live for that makes a contribution life quickly becomes empty and meaningless.
