Stop Whining and Start Setting Goals For Yourself

Stop Whining and Start Setting Goals For Yourself

Proverbs 29:18


The Word of God for the people of God on the Speak Life Podcast this week is from Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

The topic is Goal Setting

The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score. There’s a very common pattern that comes with working towards goals that we’re all familiar with: you set your mind to something, you get excited and work like mad, and then motivation starts to wane.

Having goals that you can focus on and visualize helps you better connect yourself with your inner desires, and gives you the motivational energy you need to work through periods where your focus inevitably starts to wane. Setting goals for yourself is a way to fuel your ambition. Goal setting isn’t just about creating a plan for your life and holding yourself accountable, its also about giving us the inspiration necessary to aim for things we never thought possible. When you take the time to set goals, you ensure that your life is geared towards getting the most out of every moment.

There’s so much to do and experience in life, but many of the things we want to achieve and experience won’t be handed to us – we need to work for it.

Proverbs 19:21 King James Version (KJV) 21 There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.

Proverbs 3:6 - Proverbs 3:6 King James Version (KJV) 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

2 Timothy 1:7 King James Version (KJV) 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Matthew 6:33-34 King James Version (KJV)

When you take the time to set goals, you ensure that your life is geared towards getting the most out of every moment. There’s so much to do and experience in life, but many of the things we want to achieve and experience won’t be handed to us – we need to work for it. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Isaiah 41:10 King James Version (KJV) 10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Proverbs 19:21 King James Version (KJV) 21 There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.

Proverbs 16:27-29 Living Bible (TLB) 27 Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.[a] 28 An evil man sows strife; gossip separates the best of friends. 29 Wickedness loves company—and leads others into sin.[b]

Proverbs 16:27-29 King James Version (KJV) 27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire. 28 A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends. 29 A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good. Oddly enough the Message this week is to be grateful for what you have. It kept me moving forward and I share this episode with you.

This was recorded on my iPhone.  I'm working it, baby.

I’m praying for you. Thank you for listening.
