Everyone makes goals throughout the year. They look back and feel good about positive things and a twinge of regret for the negative. Hopefully, they are stronger. I’ve created a simple tool to evaluate 5 areas of your life and TWO WORDS that will help you make

a breakthrough in each.

This is an example from my own life.

  1. Focus on God’s Word before Social Media in the morning.

  2. Pray more deeply and more often.


Social:

I give myself a 2.

Two areas I need to work on to grow.

  1. I want/need that one best friend who I can share my deepest thoughts so she can help me grow, but I tend to hold so much inside.

  2. I need to initiate coffee and dinner and concerts and get-togethers instead of waiting to be asked.

I give myself a 2 because I lost 7 months of the year because of a bad decision. I am better for it, but it stings.

  1. Get help in areas I am weak.

  2. Take risks.

  3. Share great value to help others find their purpose.




TWO WORDS…

I have just TWO WORDS you can apply in each area to make it an even better year than last.

Here are the two words that will make your future better:


SAY YES!

Say YES to every opportunity that God places before you.

Say YES to forgiveness.

Say YES to a friend in need.

Say YES to someone who offers you help.

Say YES. Say YES. Say YES.


Obviously, be wise and avoid immoral, unethical and sleazy conduct. BUT, say YES to those things God is holding out to you.


BUT, say YES to those things God is holding out to you.

Think about how many opportunities you let pass last year vs. how many you took hold of?


Benjamin Franklin looked like a fool for years but he is in every history book. J.K. Rowling was rejected 12 times for Harry Potter.


If Ben had of given up, someone else would have harnessed electricity. If Ms. Rowling would have thrown the manuscript in the trash, raising her daughter by herself would have been a huge struggle.


Robin Williams said NO to life. Jack Nicholson said NO to the role of Godfather in “The Godfather”. My father-in-law said NO to a friend wanting to start Churches Chicken.


Ephesians 1:11, “In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity to the purpose of his will…


This plan for our lives only works if we say YES to it!
