WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE?

We were not created to contain omniscience (the quality of knowing everything) like God. so, He reveals our future to us in portions we can digest.

YES WE CAN MAKE PLANS

The Apostle James taught us to make plans with the qualier “if the Lord wills” (James 4:13-17).

 

DREAMS vs GOALS

The subconscious mind does not know the dierence between fact and fiction

Dreams help define goals

When dreams are given a purpose, meaning and action they become goals

 

GOAL FUNDAMENTALS

Personalize It

Evaluate It

 

GOAL SETTING (SMART THEORY)

UNDERSTAND THAT…

Life is not easy

You will fail sometimes

There’s a lot you don’t know

You can’t do everything

There’s a lot you cannot control

You can’t change the past

A map is useless if you don’t know where you are

Excellence is a journey not a destination

Vague goals produce vague results

 

LIES

Failure is bad

My dreams are impossible

I don’t have enough yet to be happy

I’m not ready because I’m not good enough yet

 

NOW SET 2 GOALS ON EACH GOAL SECTOR BELOW

OPEN DECLARATION

“In agreement with God’s Word that says God intends to give me ‘a future and a hope,’ I offer these goals and plans to Him as a gift from my heart. I challenge myself to see exploits done for His Kingdom through my life. 

I fully understand that all goals are subject to change and to the perfect will of God. By His help these dreams of my heart shall become reality!”
