Every year we tell the world of the lofty ideals we want to achieve and by the end of the year we look back up and most of the time can’t even remember what those ideals were. Ambiguity is the culprit! And it kills dreams! Why? How?
Because there is no clear path to completion with ambiguous goals and projects so we must:
Execute by Process
And that process is good goal setting!
A man’s mind plans his way [as he journeys through life], but the Lord directs his steps and establishes them.
Proverbs 16:9, AMP
Creating great goals and planning the way towards established life principles will guide you directly towards making dreams reality. When we’re ambiguous about our desires we end up running around in circles hoping to get to a destination and usually end up frustrated. And, I know from personal experience! See that picture over there? Yea, the left side was 2015, size 14 and good camera angles and the right side- my birthday 2020, size 8! For years I tried to lose weight but it wasn’t until I established a life principle that resonated with me about my health, and created SMARTER goals with compelling whys did I see the results I’m seeing today.
So, how can we execute by process and truly kill the ambiguity instead of letting it kill us?
- Write your goals down right
- Have your compelling why
- Keep those goals in your face!
When you do those three things you’ll see the dreams you’ve been fighting for finally start to become reality!
