“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NLT)

How many times in the past have you set goals for the new year, and, for whatever reason, you never succeed in reaching those goals? Let me suggest three things that may help you.

  1. Ask yourself if the goal that you are setting or that thing that you want to accomplish will glorify God?
  2. Will that goal you want to accomplish carry with it some significant value to others or is it just about you? For example, when I decided to do push-ups to help raise money to get the kids off the street, my push-ups took on a whole new perspective.
  3. Are you willing to make the commitment to be intentional in accomplishing your goals? It’s one thing to have good intentions, but it’s quite another thing to be intentional. It’s been said, “You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do.” In other words, you deliberately set out to accomplish the task at hand. Stop saying I’ll get around to it because you know you never will but instead start saying, “I will be intentional about this. No excuses – just do it.”
