I am a goal oriented person. I like to make lists of things that I want to accomplish. For a long time I had a list of 100 things that I want to do before I die. But here is the thing about goals. Unless you are diligent about them and unless you have a plan as to how you are going to accomplish them – goals without a plan are just dreams.
A few years ago I adopted a word system to help guide me throughout the year. I read a few blogs of people who were doing this and I jumped on the bandwagon. Here are the words that I used in the past
2012 – Simplify, Share and Balance
2014 – Create, Compete, Complete
Then in 2015 I realized that my ADD was getting the best of me and I narrowed the list of three to a list of one. I used one word that would guide decisions and help me accomplish my goals for the year. In 2015 my word was Transform. In 2016 my word was Health. In 2017 my word was Inspire and in 2018 my word was prepare. By doing this I was able to accomplish many things in my life including start a podcast, lose over 50 pounds, participate in a mastermind, become a foster parent, build a website, attend conferences that have inspired me, take huge leaps in my financial management and so much more.
In 2019 my word is Breakthrough. 2018 has been a year of preparation. I have worked on my mindset of what I believe I am capable of doing, I have laid the groundwork of success by working with mentors, coaches and educating myself on how to be successful. I can’t wait to see what 2019 is going to bring and the blessings that are going to come from what is already shaping to be a powerful, life changing year. I can’t wait to share it with everyone!
I am going to breakthrough old habit and I am going to build upon healthy habits. I am going to breakthrough everything that is holding be back from a successful ministry both in and out of the church. I am going to breakthrough the 100 pound loss barrier. I am so excited about what is going to happen this year and I will document everything that is happening in my life and all the breakthrough experiences.
