Happy 2018 Everyone!!!!!
We made it into this new season, Glory Be To God! ???
As always, I’ll like to begin the new year with some prayers and blessings;
May this year be the year of Good things for us and our families;
May God bless us with wisdom and discernment to make better choices this year and beyond;
May God grant us faith to BELIEVE for everything we pray for so that we may RECEIVE it immediately;
May our salary last year be our tithe this year;
God will remove every form of dead weight from lives;
We will not bury any loved ones this year, In Jesus name, Amen!!! ??♀️??♀️??♀️??♀️
Okay so, now that’s out of the way, my people I have a question – What is up with people and resolutions/goal-setting this year????
90% of the people I’ve talked to have rolled their eyes at the thought. “They’re overrated” “no one sticks to them”, “I don’t want to”, “you shouldn’t wait for the new year to become better.” Even my gym has been empty all week!! ?
Have we given up? I mean, I get that people are over the idea and who can blame em? You’ve probably tried them out in the past and didn’t make it through the first week. #nojudgementhere
BUT! BUT! BUT! You can’t NOT TRY! That’s not how life works! It’s almost as if you declared yourself a failure from the get-go and have planned to do absolutely nothing to change that. GOD! FOR! BID! (No seriously, He did forbade it – Proverbs 29:18 reads “where there is no vision, the people perish”).
Because I care, and I genuinely want people to continue to become better versions of themselves, I have a simple strategy that can help.
Ask yourself this – In an ideal world, what does my best self, look like in December 2018?
It could be anything: I gain weight every year, this year, I want to maintain my size. I’ve always wanted to start my business, this year I will draft a business plan, I’ve always wanted to travel, this year I will get my passport. I can’t cook to save my life, this year, I want to change that. I can’t drive, this year I will learn how to.
ANYTHING!! The possibilities are endless.
Once you figure this out, you begin with end in mind and put in the work to make it happen!?????
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING and HAVE AN AMAZING 2018!
