This Saturday is our annual BIG Life Goal Setting Broadcast. You have the potential of writing goals that will radically change your life, and I will be your guide. I will show you in very practical steps how to dream, how to plan, and how to take action without being overwhelmed. This could be a moment in your life that changes your trajectory. It could be the moment you take the first step towards your truest potential and the life you most desire.
I began writing goals 13 years ago. I vividly remember sitting in a park in El Paso, TX wearing a green hoodie and putting wishes in writing, then forming a plan of action to turn those wishes into goals I would actually achieve. I stepped into the year of 2010 with a written outline of the life I truly wanted … and it worked.
13 years later I now fully live that life. Goals work. I speak from the perspective of a life that has been radically changed in every way by written goals.
But, even more than a goal weight, financial success, a happy marriage or a passionate career, I stepped into something truly life altering. In the process of writing goals and working to achieve them, I became more like the woman I was created to be.
This is why I’m so passionate about helping people write goals. I know their true power. I know this process can help you not only live the life you truly want, it will guide you in becoming the person you were created to be. And that, my friends, is SUCCESS.
I’m not just talking about your degree or your career, I’m talking about who you were created to be as a person. When you become more like who God had in mind when he formed you, everything else falls into place.
When you become more like who God designed you to be from the very beginning, you shed all the layers of doubt and insecurity, and you boldly step into your highest potential.
This is what 2023 can be for you. This is what God directed goals can do in your life.
We often put labels of professions on this, which then overwhelm us with indecision not knowing what we want to be when we grow up. Hey, can I have a moment of total and complete honesty here with you … I had no clear picture what I wanted to be until I stumbled into it in my 30’s. Drop the label.
Don’t get stuck in WHAT you’re going to do in life. You can really do anything you want to do. If you wanted to go back to school, you could. If you wanted to be a nurse or a teacher, you could. Others with less time and less resources, who were older than you with more kids than you, have done it. There are no limits in what. God has created an entire buffet of options for you and I believe he says, “my daughter, it’s all available to you, what do you want?”
I’ve discovered this journey is so much more about the HOW than the WHAT. It’s HOW we live that causes us to become.
You can be a wealthy professional and be broke and greedy.
You can be a freaking fitness model and be insecure and jealous.
You can be a life coach and be miserable and stuck.
What if our focus became more about becoming who we were created to be?
God didn’t make you broken. You do not have some inherent flaw in you that renders you incapable of change or growth. That’s nonsense. And for many it’s served as an impenetrable excuse through the years.
You now have a choice … carry the excuse and continue to live below your potential, or drop it and step on up to the more that is available to you.
Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Your God has great plans for you.
Scripture tells us the creator of the universe has specific plans for each of us and when he looks at us, he thinks of those plans. Meaning, he sees our potential.
He knows what you’re capable of. He knows what’s inside of you. He knows the life you could live and he’s making a way for you to step into it.
His plans are to prosper you, meaning he never intends for you to be stuck, or for you to settle for less than his best.
His plan is to help you break through.
His intention is to build you up to the next level of living.
He has a plan to let you truly step into the BIG Life he has available for you. Let His plans flow through your goals for 2023.
Most of us have written goals before and most of us have failed miserably at those goals. The majority of people write goals and then forget about them before the first month is over. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you’re willing to get up and show up and get out of the way and truly live this new year unleashed without old chains, then God has more available to you in 2023 than you can possibly imagine.
Are you willing to spend some serious time praying about what God has available to you?
Are you willing to surrender your goals to God and ask for his guidance in making a plan for your new year?
Perhaps this is what has been missing in past years. You’ve been trying to conqueror, but haven’t been conquering, you’ve been losing … could it be because you forgot one key element?
Romans 8:37 says “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”
You’re a conqueror THROUGH HIM. Let your goals go THROUGH HIM.
He has the most amazing plan for you my sister, make sure you’re looking for his plan, I promise it is better than yours. Partner with him in writing your goals.
Here are 7 questions to ask of your Creator before writing your 2023 goals:
- God, who did you create me to be?
- God, where am I living below my potential?
- God, what do you have available for me?
- God, where do you want me to change?
- God, what do you want me to give up?
- God, what do you want me to commit fully to?
- God, what awesome things can we do together?
