Happy New Year Family!
So thankful to God for keeping us alive to see another year. As a tradition/routine every New Year, most of us draw up a list of “New year resolutions” which most times we do not adhere to.
Its important every New Year to live a more Christ-centered life which makes it easy for every other life goals we set to fall in place. The bible urges us to examine our lives regularly, and there’s no better time to evaluate our relationship with God than the start of a new year.
Here are few tips on how to make and fulfill our New Year resolutions;
- Expect great things and put your life in God’s hands. Have high hopes, great dreams, and major belief in God. See visions and believe in them. Believe that your life would get better and the best is yet to come. And your expectations would be fulfilled through Christ who strengthens you.
- Don’t do it alone. Remember it’s not by your power nor might it’s only by the grace of God. Do not rely on your willpower rather seek Gods help.
- Budget!Almost every piece of financial advice begins with budgeting. Create successful financial habits this year by planning what to do with every single Rand you earn.
- Increase your income!There is nothing wrong with multiple streams of income. If you haven’t considered starting a business, there is no better time than now.
- Live debt-free. Create an emergency fund, set up a retirement account or save money for long-term major purchases. You can also pay off credit card balances every month.
As hard as it seems, let stick to our resolutions. Most of us have the best intentions when making resolutions and then life takes over. We all face stumbling blocks every day. Our decision to resist making excuses and stick to our resolutions takes major self control and discipline.
Lets always remember that God shall make us the head and not the tail and we will be Above Only and never beneath!
I know that there have been times I have had needs that were not met from my point of view (as a man), I had prayed and asked God for certain things to happen which never did.
True entrepreneurship involves a mindset of solving problems. But real success goes well beyond the bottom line to impacting lives and leaving a legacy.
Did your relationship fail last year? Did you expect a promotion at work and it didn’t come? Did your business suffer loss? Did you make a mistake or bad decision that you wish you didn’t?
