How to Set Goals and Achieve Them Every Time
By Drake Mariani, Founder, MemLok Bible Memory System
If Your Goal Setting Process Doesn’t Include God’s Wisdom, You Can’t Guarantee Success in Life
Ever thought what makes one person struggle and another breeze right through anything they set their mind to?
Every year we focus on goal setting. We make new year resolutions hoping that we’ll hit home this time.
We read a lot about the subject itself and feel extremely motivated but we all know what happens next.
Be honest and ask yourself what goal (or goals) never make it off your list each year.
Losing the excess weight and finally getting healthy?
Finding that special someone to share your life with?
Reading your Bible and going to church?
Joining your church choir?
Going back to school or taking that class you wanted to take?
Buying a new car?
Getting an interview call for a new job?
Starting a new business?
Regardless of your list, chances are you didn’t achieve all of the goals you set in any given year.
What’s the Secret to Accomplishing Any Goal You Set?
Accomplishing all the things on your goal list is not the hard part.
What's hard is putting yourself in motion toward your goal.
And what keeps you from putting yourself in motion is lack of knowledge and wisdom from God.
“By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.” Proverbs 24:3-4
The secret of successful goal setting and accomplishment lies in seeking God’s wisdom. I’m not saying you don’t develop your 5 year, 3 year or a quarterly plan but the idea is to cut through the noise and focus on things that God wants you to accomplish.
“Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air.” 1 Corinthians 9:26
The biggest distraction to achieving your goals is moving forward without God’s direction. Direction from anywhere other than God is equivalent to running aimlessly including relying on your own wisdom.
It shouldn’t be like that.
How to Get God’s Knowledge and Wisdom For Goal-Setting and Accomplishment?
The biggest and the most credible source to get knowledge and wisdom straight from the Almighty is His word; the Bible.
Knowing how God wants us to approach goal setting is clearly described in it. We just have to get the wisdom, meditate on it and put it to action.
