Pressing Towards Your Goals

With Christmas right around the corner, and New Year’s close behind. The tradition of setting New Year’s goals starts to come to people’s minds. Some people have achieved their goals. Some people set new one’s. Some people are wondering where they “fell off” from their goals previously set.

People don’t realize that setting goals takes preparation. Preparation of your mind and the stresses to come. Preparation of the spirit when your will & faith get tested against the challenges, and if your heart can believe that it’s a goal that you truly want or need. Preparation of the body and the new levels of fatigue that it will bring when taking on the responsibility of achieving a goal, (how many people know that you’re responsible for the goals that you set?)

When you set a goal, do it with love in your heart. You are going to receive numerous distractions, and personal discouragements, that will try to prevent you from achieving what you are working towards. But when you set a goal with love in your heart, it becomes a passion. Passions are what motivate us & keep us happy, regardless of our trials & tribulations on our path. When you have the capability to have a goal bring joy & happiness, or inspiration & motivation, then you know that you’re on the right path.

I say, set a goal with love because *Love is patient and kind, love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not celebrate about injustice, but celebrates whenever the truth wins. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

With that said, as you embark on your journey achieving your goal(s) **focus on this one thing; Forget the past, and look forward to what lies ahead. Press on to reach the end of the race and receive the prize!


*1 Corinth 13:4-7

**Philipp 3:13

    Jose, thank you! Reading this made me feel like being in a spiritual church.. What a powerful insight you just gave me: half of the goals I was setting were done out of duty -which may be, I suppose- but not necessarily with love… A goal without love is like bread without butter… a little dry to go through, right?

    Thank you for taking the time to read, reflect, & reply (3R’s, lol). I’m glad that this posting has helped in some way. I love your comparison w/bread & butter. Goals are a little dry to go through without love…and a little rough! Even I am learning how to apply love, (or shall I say butter?), to many areas of my goals, (and life), so that life is more enjoyable! People will ask you how do you stay so upbeat, or how do you stay so positive. Tell them that it’s because of butter! (of course you know I mean love…we can make it an inside joke)
