It is Tuesday and even though I had good intentions this week I have already blown it. I feel to like giving up. Yet I do have the desire to see my dreams come to pass. There just seems to be so many obstacles in my way. How do I stay focused and get the job done?
First determine what it is you want to accomplish.
Write it down. Chances are you have a few things you want to get done.
Organize your list based on your priorities. Make sure your priorities align with God’s word.
Chose scriptures to help motivate you, memorize them and repeat them to yourself. I chose one scripture a day to keep me on track. Keeping things simple is the way to go.
Have weekly and daily goals. Check off your progress when you get something done.
Try to keep your list to a manageable size. Put the most important items on top and check off from the top down. If you only get the first thing done you have still gone in the right direction.
Allocate time for working on your list. Concentrate on what you can do, focus on solutions. When negative defeated thoughts enter your head just dismiss them and refocus on God’s love for you and your desire to do His work. Then just do it! Get back to your list.
Forgive yourself when you mess up and keep on keeping on. We are not perfect and we all loss focus and want to give up. God gives us strength to be who He has called us to be. Focus your mind on what you know that is and align your actions to match. Take one step at a time.
James 1:21 “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. 22. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
Job 12:13 “With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.”
