Write down this vision.
Write it clearly on tablets, so that anyone who reads it may run.
For the vision points ahead to a time I have appointed; it testifies regarding the end, and it will not lie.HABAKKUK 2:2-3 The Voice
Even if there is a delay, wait for it.
It is coming and will come without delay.
During the last week of December, I took some few days to reflect on how the year went; In 2018 I didn’t achieve some of my goals. And for the first time, I do not regret anything instead I am encouraged to sling my shot better and focus on my aim. I am determined to press on towards the goal.
This year, I plan on pressing on towards achieving these goals and more, knowing that delay is never a denial. However, as I reflect back on how last year went I realised maybe I could have been clearer and time specific with some of my goals; by making daily/ weekly/monthly progress evaluation on them.
I generally set goals for every area in my life I want to improve and plan my year accordingly. Through the years, I have realized that writing new year plans can be quite daunting as it forces one to deal with some of the “not so great parts” of the year. However, it can also encourage you to do better in the coming year. And in fact, it forces you to select something specific and visualise your goals. The truth is you become better at achieving your goals.
This year I plan on living out God’s best for my life and to become all that He had intended and destined me to be. I will align myself with God’s will for my life. This is not the year to mess about.
And to do this I have to do things differently.
Albert Einstein once stated
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
So in 2019, I have decided to level up! It would require discipline, prioritisation and commitment to make these goals happen but I am ready to put in the WORK!
Proverbs 16:3 says
“Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans.”
Planning your ideal 2019 will require you to…
- Reflect and Renew constantly. It’s all about your mindset baby!
- Retain habits/things that are working for you already.
- Remove; what are things you need to let go of this year?
- Resolve; what is missing or lacking in your life? Then make your resolutions.
- Respond – Close the gap between the end result you want and where you are now with a plan. Make sure your plan is SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely)
- Review and Report – Find someone you are accountable to. Remember Proverbs 15:22!
- Be Responsible for your actions
One thing that is constant about life is that change is inevitable.
If you haven’t yet written your plans yet then what are you waiting for? The right moment? It will never come.
Instead, just DO IT! It doesn’t have to be perfect. Follow the steps above and you are good to go.
Do not procrastinate!
Educate yourself – Use resources, look for books out there that talk about your vision. Listen to podcasts, attend seminars or webinars. As for me, I want to own my business in 5 yrs so, I have purchased some books to help me become a manager, and be the best at it! Go to my READS FOR 2019.
Visualise your plans. Vision boards are great tools. Start by gathering words and images that represent your true purpose. Spend some time creating your ideas on the board. Post affirmations, quotes and inspirational words on it. Keep it neat – stay away from clutter. Simplicity is bliss! You can buy boards from Amazon and ideas from Pinterest or Google.
Prayer is the key!
By being persistent in prayer and spending some intentional time in the Word of God will help you achieve all that God has spoken over your life. In Jesus name, Amen!
