As a boss in the middle, we need to realize that goal setting is an act of looking at an entire situation and figuring out what you want it to ultimately look like.
The next step is identifying gaps and ways to fill those gaps by playing to our strengths and asking for help when we need it.
Then we should make small steps on the way to larger milestones.
The key is to “get started” and work on accomplishing little goals on the way to big goals. Consistency is paramount to your success.
Losing 100 lbs. is easier if you lose three or four at a time consistently. You may need a motivational partner (help) if you aren’t driven enough internally.
Asking for help doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you are in tune with your strengths.
Christians pray and ask God for help with problems. Some people think that means sitting back and doing nothing, waiting for God to magically work it all out. That sort of faith will get you nowhere. The Bible clearly teaches in James 2:17 that faith without works is dead.
There is no big secret. There is no magic pill. Things in this life worth having require counsel with the Most High, dedication and hard work. That’s it.
Sometimes, we are our biggest opponent to completing the mission. We are blinded by temporary obstacles, unable to see the potential within ourselves. Having faith means that we tie a knot and hold on at the end of our rope. This mindset becomes habitual and success, inevitable.
Getting started isn’t enough. As I recently heard Kai Greene put it, one must string together consecutive days of efficient action on a basic level, in order to achieve desired results. This implies the need for consistent action steps toward your goals, everyday. Personal accountability and follow through are vital.
No matter how big the obstacle, you can surpass it. By the Lord’s grace and mercy, you are a creature made with a spirit of power and not one of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). You just need to talk to God, find your purpose within your spiritual gift and be ready to work.
No weapon formed against you will prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)
Get your shovel ready, God’s waiting.
