What is it you need to do to make 2018 a successful year?

The New Year is just around the corner.  I have heard some people say, “When the New Year begins, I will _____.”

The only problem with this statement is these people are taking for granted the last 12 days left in this year.  In these twelve days, you have more than enough time to write a few relevant goals to bring about your desired success.  What are you waiting on?  JUST DO IT!

Here are two reasons why you should JUST DO IT when it comes to setting goals:

1.    It’s smart.

Everyone wants significance and success.  No one wants to be labeled as a failure.

Proverbs 6:6-9 says, “Go watch the ants, you lazy person.  Watch what they do and be wise.  Ants have no commander, no leader or ruler, but they store up food in the summer and gather their supplies at harvest.”

If we watch the ant, we will understand the need to prepare and plan for the future.  It starts now!  JUST DO IT!

2.    It increases your odds.

You will increase you chances of being successful when you decide to set goals.  You will think through how to navigate the various challenges you will face to achieve your success.  This will cause you to work harder, believe in yourself, and create a reliable roadmap to achieve your desired goals.

Give yourself the one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself by setting goals for 2018.  What goals do you need to set to make your 2018 successful?  Feel free to leave a comment below or email me directly if you need help setting goals for 2018.
