It’s time for 2017.
New Year…..Who Dis?
At the end of every year we set goals, at least I hope we do, for the new year but are we being intentional about our goals? Are we just putting stuff on paper or on social media just to say we did? Or are we truly setting goals?
I set goals last year but I didn’t accomplish all of them, some I knocked out the park, others not so much. The ones that I didn’t accomplished was mainly because I was not being intentional about those goals. Yes, I created a vision board. I do one every year. This year I created a brand new vision board. I started from scratch. I have been revamping my old vision board for the last 5 or so years. But this year I’m being very intentional about my vision & goals for 2017 so a new board was needed.
One of my goals for 2016 was to face my fear of heights by riding the elevator at Bass Pro Shop up to the outlook. I had an accountability partner who did her best to get me down there but it never quite worked out. Because I was very intentional about this goal I was still able to do something to help me face this fear. I walked across a bridge. Sometimes things don’t always work out the way that we plan but in the end they do work out.
Another goal was to get back to regular journaling and that I did. . But I also added a gratitude journal. I use to write things that I was grateful for in my journal but I decided that I wanted to be more intentional about being grateful so I started a gratitude journal. Writing down the things that I am grateful for helps me to show God that I am grateful for all of that He provides. This also makes me see that I have a lot to be grateful for. Once again I am being intentional about showing gratitude.
So as you set goals for the New Year start by being intentional about those goals. Ask yourself what value will this goal will bring to your life. Once you set your goals don’t let anything get in your way.
