Tell me the truth! Have you already broken your New Year’s Resolutions yet?
That’s the reason that I don’t do resolutions But I do work on goals for the year. I break my goals down into 5 categories: SPIRITUAL, PHYSICAL, FAMILY, WORK & FINANCIAL
Whether you make resolutions or establish goals, here’s the first thing you need to know. It’s never too late to start or restart a “New Year’s” resolution or annual goals. The important thing is that you do it. So if you’ve already broken your resolution, say, to start paying down your debt, don’t lose heart. Just pick yourself up and start over. Here are three things to consider:
- Re-examine your resolution. Did you really want to achieve that goal? If you’re not committed to it, chuck it. But if it’s still important to you—and getting out of debt should be—then make it a new priority.
- Start with “baby steps.” Set a one-day goal and don’t think about the whole year ahead. Just meet your goal today. Then do it again tomorrow, and the next day, and so on.
- Tap into the true source of inspiration, the Holy Spirit. Flesh can’t conquer flesh, but the Spirit can. Galatians 5:16 says, “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.” Ask the Holy Spirit to renew your mind and keep you on track.
