The end of the year is here. Have you reached your goals, or did you settle for less?
So many of us settle because we are not willing to finish what we begin. There is no guarantee of happiness. Contrary to popular belief, happiness is not promised to us in the Constitution. No person can make us happy, no object we own, and no place we can visit.
There are many excuses we make for failing to reach our goals. A lot of times we like to play the blame game, passing the buck to someone or something out of our control.
I will (insert) as soon as I get here, or get this, or this happens.
The government is holding me back.
I was born poor.
I have no education.
I don’t have the time.
I don’t have the talent.
No matter what our reasons are, if we do not reach our full potential we are hurting ourselves and the people closest to us.
We cannot let fear of failure hold us back.
It is time to get out the pen and paper and start mapping out the things we will accomplish in the coming year. After we write it down we need to plan the steps we need to take to reach our goals. You are in control of your decisions and your path.
If we never challenge ourselves with new goals we will never grow. Let’s all make 2018 a great year!
2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
