“Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don’t quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don’t quit until you reach it. Never quit. ” – Coach Paul Bear Bryant
I’ve had goals my entire life. I always say “one day I’m going to do such and such”. The day never comes. I don’t do any work to accomplish these goals. Or, I will work on the goal for a short time and then give up on it. So, Coach Bryant, I’m going to listen to you. It’s time to start quitting and start working. Of course, my main goal in this life is to get to Heaven one day and take as many people possible with me. The apostle Paul, wrote:
” I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
There are also the goals I have while living on this earth. Grow Spiritually & in wisdom – Write a book (I’ve been saying this one since I was a little girl) – do good at my job – exercise & eat healthier – decorate the house on a budget – finish a quilt, etc. I’m blessed with a husband who encourages me to do all these things. He was the one who suggested I write this post – to give myself some accountability for accomplishing my goals. He knows how much I’ve always wanted to spend more time writing, and a couple of weeks ago he suggested I start focusing on that since it’s something I really want to do. At this point, I’m my only hinderance in accomplishing my goals. So, tomorrow is a brand new day. It’s time to get to work
What are your goals and how do you motivate yourself to accomplish them?
