A goal without action is just a dream. Dreaming big is amazing and needs to happen, but if there is no plan to carry it out, then it’s just a glorified thought. The way dreams come to fruition is by having a plan of action. That plan of action is called setting goals. Goals are so crucial because they are the connection between dreams and reality. What is a dream without a plan?
Since the new year is coming up, it was only right that I talked about setting goals. I firmly believe that it is okay to bring goals from last year into this year. For instance, a goal of mine is to get more into writing and to be able to have it as a side job where I can travel and share about my writing. With that, I need to take steps so that it won’t just stay in my mind. We love to keep these dreams in our mind. For whatever reason, maybe fear of failure or the fear of rejection from close people, keeps us from setting goals.
In this new year, I simply want to encourage us all to set goals. To really dream big, because God will guide us towards His heart for our lives. Jeremiah 29:11 says , “for I know the plans for you says the Lord. They are to give you hope and a future”. This scripture is so amazing because Jesus desires for our lives to be lived in a way that glorifies His majesty.
So with that, I want to say, DARE TO DREAM. But more than that, let us pursue our God given dreams. Let us also ask the Lord to give us wisdom on how to pursue our dreams. Let’s be wise and set goals so that we can live and amazingly joyful life, doing what God has called and led us to, and one that we enjoy as well!! Here’s to 2018!!
