We are almost two months in to 2023, how are you doing with the changes that you planned to make for the new year? Have you hit your goals or are you on the outer rings of the bullseye? Maybe you are still looking for your target. It is not too late to reset your sites on your goals or to aim once again at the goals you set.
We are a work in progress, continually growing in not only who we want to be but who Christ has designed us to be.
I know that everyone has had dreams since they were children. We dream about all that our future holds. What type of career will we pursue that allows us to use the skills God has given us? Will we marry and have a family? What will retirement look like?
That is right where most of us are now? But rather than be discouraged when life does not turn out the way we dreamed, I am reminded of the song Unanswered Prayers by Garth Brooks.
“Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you’re talkin’ to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn’t answer doesn’t mean he don’t care
Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.”
Being successful means different things to different people. Only you can decide what success means to you.
We may work towards a goal but miss the mark. Our goals may change and that is OK. We have to just keep moving forward. When I heard the following quote it made me look at life so much differently.
“If you don’t win, you learn”Nelson mandela
So even if you miss your goals, keep working towards what is most important to YOU! No one else.
