Life Resources :: Goal Setting 101

Goal Setting 101

Posted by admin on July 17, 2013

When you were in college, you probably were like most freshmen and took an introductory course, a 100-level course.  I took my share as well.  Likewise, you’ve been introduced to the idea of goal setting previously.  I know and you know, goal setting is important.  We need to set goals to create the kind of life we desire, the results we seek, and the achievements we set forth to accomplish.

People who write down their goals are exponentially more likely to achieve them.  The statistic continues to rise.  The last statistic I heard is that folks who write down their goals are 78% more likely to achieve them.  You’ve heard this.  I’ve recited this for years as well.

So, are your goals written down?  If so, do you know where they are written?  How often do you read and review your goals?  Nearly every personal development expert will suggest goals should be reviewed daily and often the suggestion is morning and at the end of your day.

The last few blogposts have been focused on creating your vision.  What would you like to have your life look like?  If you were to experience abundance, joy, happiness, and peace, what would your life look like?

As Stephen Covey used to say, “Begin with the end in mind.”  Know what you are creating, be clear with your vision, take responsibility for your actions and thoughts, and live the life you desire.

Be sure to post your responses below!  I love to hear from you!

Sarah, thought I'd let you know I found a new seeirs of books to take over for Harry Potter. There's an Irish writer named Michael Scott, and he's writing a seeirs about Nicholas Flamel and his wife. There are immortals, mythological characters, boggarts, giant spiders, historical figures anyway there are two out now, the Alchemist and the Magician. I finished them today and they're about the equivalent of the fourth or fifth Potter book. Thought you might want to check them out. Have a great birthday!

I always have good innteniots when making my New Year's resolutions. Usually one week later i have blown it. So I make resolutions that are very attainable. This year's resolutions: One, don't make my bed any more. Two, Eat more junk food. Three, watch more t.v. and last but not least, shop more. (just kidding.) Although those would be a lot easier, I don't think I would see a lot of growth in 2012.I really want to focus on not so much making a resolution for 2012, but making a more permanent life style change that goes beyond one year. I definitely want to do my devotionals on a daily basis. I am asking any one of you that is consistent with their devotions to call me on it if you see me skipping out. I will not be offended. I definitely need to be more prayerful. I need to slow down and recognize what is important in my life and what isn't. Actually, school is important to me since I home-school my girls. Truthfully, I am not having a good attitude about starting back up Monday. I get really tired and a little burned out with it. But I am praying for God to give me a good attitude about it and praying for some excitement towards it. I would appreciate your prayers when it comes to our home school. I never feel like I have enough time to do everything I need to do with home schooling, but I know that God has called me to do it so I need to focus on that and not be worried about every thing else. When it comes to my family I need to have more patience. It is difficult home schooling and having my mother in law living with us. She is a wonderful woman, but it gets more and more difficult as her disease progresses. I need a lot of prayer in this area.I am planning on staying committed to Sonshine Baptist Church. I love my church and all my Pastors and their wives. I believe the leadership at Sonshine has a real, sincere love for the Lord and I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful church. I love H2o and all the youth. I plan on staying 100% committed to our youth group. I pray we will grow and add more students this year that may not know the Lord. Lastly, I plan on continuing my goal of achieving black belt in TKD. This won't happen by the end of 2012 but i will keep working hard at each belt level.Happy New Year to all of you, I love all of you very much. [url=]zwyhwwlo[/url] [link=]tmfbvsmr[/link]
