When we “think” we have to explain to people why we need to explore new heights in our life, we restrict our godly gifts. We don’t need to explain or seek permission from anyone with the exception of God and yourself. Now that being said, if you are married or in a relationship it could more than likely be a joint decision; I’m not in your home…only you know this answer. You don’t want to cause strife where there isn’t any. Just saying….
You see, too often we seek the advice from people that do not have their own lives together…people that do not want you to succeed because they never had the courage to step out on their own without approval from someone else.
Think about it, when you are stagnant in your life with no goals or aspirations and all you do is “wish” you could be more courageous to take the leap of faith, you employ discouraging people in your company. You will hear depressing stories about how they never made it because someone held them back from achievement. Well guess what, they are doing the exact same thing to you. It’s time to wake up and know Whose and Who you are! Always remember, misery loves company. Once you leave misery behind, an awakening of the mind, body, soul, and spirit will seek to soar new heights!
• Change your mindset/Change your mind for the better. Stop giving reasons why you “can’t,” give reasons why you “should” and “will.”
• Change the company you keep. Ask yourself, “Are they lifting me up or dragging me down?” In other words, are they adding to your life or sucking life out of you?
• Support those who support you. We all need a support system to take the heavy load off of day to day tasks.
• Don’t burn any bridges. If you need to leave a job or break off a relationship, do so on friendly terms. You never know when you may need future services or favors.
• Start journaling:
[ ] What are your goals?
[ ] What actions are you going to take to achieve your goals?
[ ] Who/What are involved/included in your goal setting? Kids? Spouse? situations? Circumstances?
[ ] What is your time frame for completion?
[ ] What/Who is your why?
[ ] Whose permission are you seeking?
[ ] What obstacles are you facing?
[ ] How will you overcome those obstacles?
We would like to think there is a perfect time….there is no perfect time. It’s now or never.
There is one thing I know for sure, you can and will accomplish great things in life through hard work, patience, loved ones in your corner, and a positive attitude.
Happy Goal Setting!
