Do you have any major goals you want to accomplish this year? I have two major goals: 1) finish losing my weight to get back to my healthy weight and maintain, and 2) to buy a home, within my budget that I like and will meet my needs. My timeline is January to January.
I have been working on Goal #1 for about a year and Goal #2 a bit longer. Goals don't come to fruition overnight. They take time and work and you have to say no to other things or even people at times. You have to prepare yourself emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. If you want to succeed in reaching your goals, no matter what they are, you can't quit. You have to finish what you start. And most importantly, or at least for me, you can't be in a hurry. You have to think about what you want to do and plan and then execute your plan. You can't worry about what anyone else thinks or even what they want. These are yours goals and it's your life. The only other Person you need to not only include but follow their lead is God. And His opinion always counts because He knows you best and He knows your needs best. He also loves you so He will never steer you wrong.
Keep pursing your goals and don't give up! Don't quit! God will give you the strength, wisdom and stamina you need to accomplish them, even when you don't realize it. He will guide and direct you in ways you aren't even aware of.
I am excited about accomplishing my goals this year and I'm going to follow Him above all else. There are many good things to come!
