A few days into February and my mind has been wondering and just looking for wisdom like literally everywhere as always.
I tend to do this to inform my goals and priorities for the year usually. So, while looking,I stumbled across one of my handwritten notes below which is more like something I would normally post about on my YouTube but I thought I’d post it on here anyways.
It is a quote inspired by a scripture in Proverbs 16:18 which says Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.
It’s just something I’m always mindful of to help me walk in humility as God continues to lift me up and I start winning more in life.
I hope we can all practise that because 2023 is set to be a great year for all of us if we make the right moves.
Happy New Year first of all and cheers to another attempt at being consistent with blogging.
I must admit that Christmas 2022 and entry into the New Year didn’t carry the excitement it usually carries for me.It was very weird for me and yes I know they say the novelty wears off as you get older but oooof…
As the year drew closer to its end,naturally I started thinking about what I was going to do with my life.I have to admit I had some ideas for my New Years Resolutions(NYR) but I didn’t have the clarity to express it with the intention I actually had(if that makes sense at all)?.
For the past few years,I’ve basically recycled my NYRs despite presenting it in different vision board formats.For last year,I used canva and pinterest and sadly the main thing I was able to achieve on there was clearing my debt and also getting a credit card.
Almost 90% of my NYRs didn’t happen so let’s just say I was not keen about NYR 2023 despite my nagging and constant advocacy for vision boards and writing the vision down in general.
I’ve been exploring via YouTube,IG and through conversations with family and friends the last few days and I have come up with these steps that will most likely help anyone in a similar boat like me achieve at least half of their goals.People swear by them so I’ve rephrased them in the way I understand them.
See below;how to achieve your NYR 2023
1-Set an intention and a reason you want that thing-why do you want that thing and how’s that going to benefit your life?E.g.A car because you are single parent and travelling with a baby on the bus is starting to feel long.This should be your why.
2-What habits can you start to make it easier for your goal to materialise?.E.g,if you want to save £50 a month into an emergency fund, the habit you will need to develop will be automating a £50 saving into a high yield yet easily accessible account to come out on your pay day(treat it like a bill) so the money is actually saved and untouched as well as out of your sight so you are not tempted to spend it.
3-Give deadlines to your goals.E.g if you have 12 goals,allocate one goal to each month and work hard each month to make sure you achieve that goal,then you can dust your hands off that goal.
4-Pray and commit the goal/s to God every month and ask Him to help you and bring helpers to help you achieve it.
I intend to practise these things I’ve shared as I’m determined to not go another year without seeing certain things in my life.I also hope that these steps will be useful and effective.
With that said,I really hope and pray this year is fruitful for everyone reading and we can all challenge ourselves to experience growth in many areas of our lives and live blessed lives.
