This week’s topic for discussion is “Start Somewhere BUT Don’t Give Up!”
The beginning of a new year is always a good time to reflect and make resolutions as to the things we want to change or accomplish. However, an article in Forbes magazine quoted a study that showed only “25% of people stay committed to their resolutions after 30 days and only 8% accomplish them.” YIKES.. that stat makes you almost not want to even try!!
What is it about the 8% of people that succeed and accomplish what it is they set out to do?? Before you even set your goals for the year or your aspirations, consider your mindset or better yet your faith. You need to start with a foundation of faith to BELIEVE that YOU CAN and WILL ACCOMPLISH whatever it is you set out to do… You need to have an attitude of EXPECTANCY that good things will happen to you EVEN when times get hard or it looks impossible! (Trust me, this is experience speaking!!) 😉
Today, sew the seeds of a strong mindset of expectancy, apply daily action each day to accomplish one small task towards the goal you desire and water it with TIME! Watch something beautiful grow from an expectant and consistent heart. Start today and don’t give up… you are so much closer to that goal, aspiration or miracle than you know!! Whatever you put your mind to, YOU CAN DO!! Remember two things, “with God all things are possible.” (Mathew 19:26) and “Surely your goodness and love shall follow me all the days of my life…” (Psalm 23:6) EXPECT God to move on your behalf…He wants to bless you!!
