The year that was, 2015 – is just a few days before we refer to it as “last year”. Most of us look back and check attainment of the goals we set for ourselves in the beginning of 2015. One best thing is that i am still alive, saved and serving the Lord Jesus Christ alone. I thank God for keeping me through it all – i am ALIVE!
Coming back to goals, yes i have achieved others – most significantly academically this was my best year – choices i made about myself some years ago – choices i had made it a point to focus on no matter what – eventually, they were attainable. I have learnt that FOCUS is key to a well drafted and set GOAL. In all you plans, for them to SUCCEED, keep focus. If you read “The 12 Success Factors” by Dr J.L. Mabuela”, then you will agree with this statement ” Success is the natural result of the laws and principles that govern the process of creation.
Lasting success is never an accident. It happens for a reason and is the expected consequence of taking successful actions and thinking successful thoughts” Are you planning to be successful in your next year project – map your GOALS clearly and confidently – present them before GOD according to Proverbs 16 verse 3. Believe in them and live for them – draw much from inside you – your intrinsic convictions about your plans will prevail against the extrinsic forces.
I DECLARE AND I DECREE – IF I MADE IT THIS YEAR – YOU CAN MAKE IT TOO – JUST FOCUS, BE UNSHAKABLE, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, YOUR ABILITY – LEARN AND INCREASE YOUR INFLUENCE –
STRUCTURE YOUR PLANS IN TERMS OF :
1 – WHAT – What do you want – what will it take you to achieve it? What are expected outcomes? What will the results mean to you?
2 – WHY (Rationale for this)
3 – HOW ( processes, procedures and activities)
4 – WHO – will you need assistance, who will take you there? (Read Success Factor No 5 – 12 Success Factors by Dr Joe Mabuela)
5 – When – timing is important – if its a 12 months project, then break it down into what has to be done per month towards attainment of this plan. Immediately you will know what has to be done by when. You already get to know what has to be done in June 2016 etc.
6- WHERE – Where do you want to do this (as mentioned/identified in 1 above).
It does not matter whether you Resolution is for you as an individual or an organisation, every achievement is always preceded by a goal. Goal setting is the main function of our mind. When you chose to make a decision, the subconscious processes in your mind get triggered to transform the very decision into reality.
