It’s exciting to be in a virgin year but it’s embarrassing to remain surprised and confused on how to start the year. While you are still looking around, “Happy Christmas” will soon be the song of the year again by then it will dawn on you that time waits for no one. Don’t get too carried away by the ecstasy of being in a new year that you forget that days are already counting down. Preparation is the mother to fulfillment and laziness is a friend to procrastination. Whatever you have planned to achieve in the year, please just start…
If you made spiritual goals to pray three times a day or to study three chapters of the Bible or to read one motivational book per month or not to miss church services this year or to talk to one person per day about living right.. Whatever it maybe, have you started?? This is 3rd January, 2019 and while you are still taking a new year break it’s soon going to be 3rd April, 2019. Just start! Don’t wait till you think the year is settled or people have returned from their villages, how is that your business in the first place 🤔?
You made financial goals to save a certain amount at the end of the year or you decided to mind your spending this year but you just received a monetary gift and you are already negotiating within yourself whether to save it or to spend it on that shoe you have had your eyes on since last year, you are thinking if you don’t buy it now, you won’t see that design again… The truth is when you start compromising now, before the end of the year you won’t be able to achieve that goal… Gather all the forms of discipline you need and begin to work towards actualizing that goal.
You planned on learning a new language this year and you are still relaxed, you haven’t discovered any learning center around you or you even haven’t discovered a good site yet that’s if you want to learn online. You don’t know how much it will cost you, you dont have any plans yet. It’s not going to happen like magic, the language is not going to fall on you like that, don’t just write down goals without any feasible plans to back it up.
Even if you planned on a change of job this year, what are you doing towards that?? You don’t have your applications updated yet, you haven’t made enquiries about new openings yet, you are still thinking that when it’s time things will just happen like in the movies. 🤥
Do you know that while you were busy eating and drinking Cox it’s Christmas and new year celebration, people were going for job interviews, people were establishing new contacts, others were getting new contracts, even new jobs..😢. I personally got an idea I will be workimg on in this year, I have established contacts already.
Don’t relax friends, let’s get out there and do whatever we have planned on doing. Don’t be scared of starting, don’t start giving excuses why you can’t begin yet, don’t tell your self to rest a little, don’t pause… Whatever you have written down for the year, prayerfully run with it, start running now. Life is a race, run on your path and don’t compare yourself with your community but with the world cox you are a global entity.
Remember starting well doesn’t guarantee your ending well, but you have to remain focused and aim to end well then you will be writing your success story at the end of the year.
I believe in you and what you can achieve by God’s grace.😁
See you soon!! 😎
