7 REASONS TO SET PERSONAL GOALS


1.It will provide direction: A man without a goal in life is like someone who gets into a cab and tells the cab driver to take him anywhere. Setting personal goals is a great way of motiving yourself to achieve your vision. You create the road map that organises a plan on where you want to go for the future.

2.It will give you clarity: This is a way to articulate your intentions and help you clarify what you want, when you want it and how you intent to get it.

3.It will keep you focused: Staying on track with what you want, checking what arrangements or plans you have made to reach your goal and how far you have gone.

4.It will reveal a lot about yourself: Even when you get discouraged about not doing anything about your written goals. It actually reveals that you have a desired dream or vision, and shows how strong you are on the inside. However, with a little motivation and by taking small steps you can break the ice.

5.It will help you value your time: You will appreciate how your valuable time is spent. Goal setting need wise application of time, it will require efficient use of one of your natural possession. Which is the devotion of your time, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly or working with expiration dates in mind.

6.You will evaluate your priorities:This is a way to challenge yourself, ask if this is what you really want, set an action plan, find out what you need to cut off, stop or start. Decide on your primary and secondary goals and your deadlines.

7.You will have great reasons to have a celebration: What you once had on paper can eventually become a reality. Your little effort can finally bring its reward in the end. Life does not have to be stressful, attempting to make a change is a good move, just remember to enjoy the journey and take time to celebrate.

You can share your reasons, all that matters is not giving up. “But as for you, be strongand do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”2 Chronicles 15:7

Thank you Pastor for this masterpiece. Pastor, Just to let you know that I love you with all my heart. Lately I've been having a strong burden in my heart to pray for you more. Whatever that is, I know that the Lord has something great in store for you. I have known you as a woman of integrity. We aware that Africans particularly naturally abhor people of integrity. Keep your head high because your God will see you through and God, time and posterity will SURELY VINDICATE YOU. I believe your actions you took were very justifiable considering the circumstances and all you had gone through.

Personal goals are so important because one can easily forget about themselves while being occupied with other peoples goals- such as an organization or work environment. Even as a parent guiding children to achieve goals, it is important we set our own goals because this will help us grow as a person. This is because once that child leaves the house for university or out of town job, the parent becomes depressed and feels lost- if not personal goals were set. As you said Pastor, setting goals gives us clarity. That means that we have a clear picture of our plans and why we want to achieve them. This is important because you cannot focus on whet you cannot see. Thank you so much Pastor for this word in season. It is a great blessing. We are growing strong in the Lord and will not give up.

I think a lot of our dreams are left unfilfilled because we don't turn them into goals. Dreams can seem so big and unachievable but when you break them down into goals it brings it closer and makes it 'easier' to achieve. Each if the points listed are so true and important. I'm off to write down some goals....

! It will reveal a lot about yourself # this for me had been the most uphill experience, not doing anything about my written goal....I carry the burden all day long but to actually make a start can be compared to moving a mountain. As pastor said the moment you break the ice by actually overcoming that potential energy, you will start to realise how easy it is to realise your goal, the momentum piles up very quickly to get you to that desired end, such as been my experience

Waooo pastor Anita Thanks , this is very educational and no one will follow the steps you have elaborated without achieving their goals It does produce result definitely because the steps will keep one in check and balance more especially if they back it up with the word of God and also sow seed no matter the amount This is what I have started doing for almost 4 years now and it is producing an unbelievable result
