As you go about setting goals for the new year, keep in mind the need for spiritual blessings. Here are some tips that might be useful:
1. The reason goal setting often falls short is that most people’s approach to it is completely dyslexic. It is “outside-in” focused and “ego-driven.” It’s based on myths about what you believe you “should do” and ignores the calling of your true-self – your spirit. “Ego-driven” goal setting is always a temporary solution, because you must continually motivate yourself in order to sustain it.
2. On the other hand, goal setting from an “inside-out” approach is based on the flow of inspiration, passion and joy that come from within. This approach includes your spiritual calling. It is not just purpose-driven; it’s driven by Divine Purpose. It requires no motivation to sustain, because it flows through divine inspiration.
3. Success is too often defined as the achievement of a desired goal that is measured in terms of money, fame, position, accolades, or achievements. There are many aspects to success; material wealth is just one of them. True Success is not something we arrive at it is a journey! Monetary abundance can make the journey a lot more enjoyable, but True Success includes health, passion, relationships, mental health, emotional peace and spiritual well-being.
Your Divine Purpose was put in place long before you came to earth. God’s plan for your life includes weaknesses, challenges, failures and successes. It promises strength in areas where you are lacking. It leads you on paths you would not expect to take, and brings people into your life you would not expect to meet.
Your Divine Purpose is God’s plan for your life. In the end, the value of your life will not be determined by your accomplishments, but by what God has been able to accomplish through you.
4. Let this be the year that you take hold of all the spiritual blessings the Lord has promised — peace, health, protection and victory.
Be encouraged today because no matter what is happening in your life right now, you have a chance for a new beginning. Choose to leave the old behind — leave behind old behaviors, old thinking, old words, and old mindsets and embrace the new by faith. Trust that He is leading you, and this year, declare His Word and embrace the blessings that He has prepared for you!
