You’re either teaching, reaching, or breaching when it comes to your mission and assignment. As a valued, amazing lady in business you’ve gotta shine in the marketplace. In order to do that you’re going to have to get real comfortable with understanding the power of your mission.
Your mission is about souls, impact & purpose and it takes time, experience, and nurturing to transform it from simply an idea that sounds good on paper to a powerful force that wakes you up every morning.
Nurturing your mission isn’t just about what you do for your benefit, but who it’s for and how you live it out.deanafarrell.com
Just like you can’t plant a seed and expect it to grow without the proper attention and care, you need to give your mission consistent effort and willingness to adapt to the seasons.
These seasons could be what’s happening with you personally, those you serve, or a mix of both. Seasons are incredibly important to growth. It’s literally Key #1 to Prioritized Focus!
Neglecting to understand the importance of your mission is going to hugely affect the actions you choose to teach the souls you’re meant to reach. I’m here to help make sure that you don’t breach that responsibility!deanafarrell.com
Teaching Your Mission
Before you can teach your mission, you first have to know what it is! And before you can know and understand your mission, you first have to know who you are. Who are you?
Defining who you are beyond titles, labels, roles, or accomplishments is the place to start if you haven’t dug into that work yet.
Once you get the messaging right TO you ABOUT you, getting the message out to who you’re meant for is much easier. (and dare I say effective?)
Here are 3 quick tips to help you nurture your messaging in order to get to a mission statement:
- Who do you want to help?
- What do you want to help them do?
- Why do you want to help them do that?
Answer these questions honestly and you’re on your way to not only a mission that inspires you to take action but will also resonate with those you’ve been assigned to reach.
Not sure what that looks like for you exactly? Let’s set up a time to chat about it together.
For added measure, here’s the latest version of my mission and what I’ve used to propel it further:
I’m passionate about arming valued, amazing ladies in business and ministry to step into their God-sized callings with faith-fueled Prioritized Focus. Guiding them with grit, grace, and gusto, because I believe that when women embrace their true purpose and faith, they can transform not only their lives but also the world around them.
…and the short version: Arming valued, amazing ladies in business & ministry to step into their God-sized callings with Prioritized Focus!
In the meantime, of course, I have some specific things to keep in mind for you when it comes to teaching and reaching with your mission. 👈
Productivity and Consistency
When it comes to furthering the mission you’ve been entrusted with, you’ve got to stay focused! This includes determining what it takes for you to stay productive and consistent.
Productivity is one of my favorite playgrounds! I’m always looking for better ways to define, discover, and better ways to do things more efficiently. Just take a look at the Focus Shop for a peek at some of those things I’ve created to help us!
At the end of the day, only you can determine what will and does work best for you when it comes to forwarding your mission.
Here are 3 quick tips to help you determine if you’re being productive and consistent:
- Alignment Assessment: Are your daily tasks and actions aligning with your core mission and values? You can take this QUIZ and find out now!
- Performance Evaluation: Have you created specific key performance indicators (KPIs) related to your mission?
- Feedback and Reflection: Are you asking for feedback from trusted mentors, peers, or paying attention to what your assigned peeps are saying? Regularly reflecting on feedback and using it to refine your strategies for productivity and consistency can be a game changer.
Determining to nurture what it takes to keep you productive and consistent is only going to build your confidence, increase your visibility and reach for those you’ve been assigned.
Reaching Your Assignment Through Your Mission
Teaching your mission is the fun part of the fundamental pieces to your business. But getting to that point is often long, unglamorous, and boring. You know, the behind-the-scenes stuff.
Writing this blog post is the work behind the fun of sharing it with you. It doesn’t just show up here all “pretty and organized.” No, there’s a messy, before-you-see-it process that has to happen first.
Listen VAL (valued, amazing lady), without the discovery process, you risk wandering aimlessly, missing the mark, and never fully realizing the impact you were meant to make.
Wondering if you’re mission is resonating?
Here are 3 quick tips to assess if you’re reaching your assignment through your mission:
- Are you attracting the people who need your message and solutions?
- Do you have metrics that you’re using to measure the impact of your mission?
- Have you remained true to your core values and mission while open to adapting to the needs of your assignment to better serve them?
While it’s good to learn, know, and utilize what works, it’s also important to be mindful of what doesn’t…
Breaching Mistakes to Avoid
We’ve covered a lot in the post. (I mean, don’t you kind of expect that from me? 🙃🎯) But I want to be sure that you don’t miss the importance of what it means to be and STAY on your mission.
Teaching your mission can only come after you’ve learned to define the message. First to you, then to those you’ve been assigned.
Reaching those you’ve been assigned through your mission is going to take some discovery. Be patient, yet persistent with that process and I promise, you’ll get there.
Breaching your mission is probably something we’re most familiar with, whether consciously or not. And I’m not even going to define these areas for you, because odds are you’ve discovered them on your own along the way.
So let’s just call this a quick checklist of what NOT to do, shall we?
Common breaches you should commit to being determined to avoid:
- Overcommitment & Burnout
- Misalignment with your Core Values
- Overmanaging Your Time Instead of Prioritizing Your Focus
- Doubt & Imposter Syndrome
Don’t let these breaches get in the way of what you’ve been designed for and assigned to in this place in history! By the way, if you poke around this site, we cover those topics and more, or for a one-stop resouce, you’ll want to get the book.

You’ve been specially equipped, specifically empowered, and significantly invested in by God to teach and reach those you’ve been assigned.
