In 2019, I had a goal to write a book. I can remember telling a friend of mine that we would keep each other accountable by writing two chapters of a book every month. We figured this can be achieved by allocating one hour to writing thrice a week. We also talked about how we would be rounding off our books by August. The plan was perfect but unfortunately, that was the end of that goal.
I went home after our discussion overwhelmed with the thought of writing a whole book. Looking at my book collection didn’t help matters. As a matter of fact, I did not know where to start from. It dawned on me that it takes a lot of work. Instead of me to pay the price by doing the work, I abandoned my goals entirely.
Am I the only one that has experienced a situation where they are sure that a particular idea will be a success if they put in the work but come up with excuses and keeps procrastinating till the idea is forgotten altogether?
I know that paying the price can be hard but it will always be worth it.
It is the price paid that makes the goal a reality
What are those prices you are yet to pay to make your goals a reality?
It can be:
- Staying in His presence
- Constant reading of the word of God
- Dedicating your life to promoting the gospel
- Reading voraciously
- Starting that non-profit organization
- Dedication in your work place
- Building that business
- Paying for those courses
- Sharpening your skills
- Saying NO to immediate gratification
- Serving with joy
- Being consistent in doing what God has called you to do irrespective of your current condition
You can insert the price you need to pay.
I don’t know your personal goals but whatever it is needs a prize.
There’s a price that comes with making a generational impact.
If God calls you to nations, He does not have time to spoon feed you.
Sis, make up your mind to pay the prize for excellence, generational impact, competence, spirituality, generational wealth, discipline, integrity and consistency.
PS: Talking about paying the prize, do you have a fitness goal to crush this year? sign up for my plans launching today.
