iTHRIVE: Articulate My Strategy

Greetings!

BlogFam - 
Have you ever made a decision to do something or to go somewhere or to be someone?  I am sure that your answer is YES.  OK.  Next Question.  How did you move forward toward what you wanted to do, where you wanted to go, or who you wanted to be?  What was your plan?  Did you have a well thought out strategy in order to accomplish whatever you set out to accomplish, to complete what you wanted to do, to get to where you wanted to go, to become who you wanted to be?

Friends, as we come to the end of yet another year, this is actually a great time for YOU to think through your strategy for living your best life in 2016.   It is not too early and it is not too late.  It is the perfect time for you to not just think about WHAT you want to accomplish, but to articulate a clear strategy for doing so. 

I am a witness to how critical it is to have a strategy for accomplishing your goals.  There have been goals that I have set in my own life and I knew exactly what I needed to do to reach those goals, I implemented my strategy, and met or in some cases, exceeded my goals.  On the other hand, I also know what it is to have a goal that simply remains a dream in the happy clouds of my mind because I did not have a strategy for making those dreams my reality.  Now, I acknowledge that life happens...meaning things happen that you cannot plan for or anticipate or that catch you by surprise and those happenings may hinder your progress.  But life's surprises are still no excuse for not moving forward once you get over it.  Friends, what is your strategy for living your best life?

I know you probably need to take some time to think about it and then to write your vision and make it plain so that you may run with it.  But you have to do it.  You must articulate your own strategy for doing what you want to do, going where you want to go, and for becoming the person you want to become.  It will not happen without some effort on your part and now is a great time to get it together!

Now, let us take a deep breath before you get overwhelmed because you feel the weight or the pressure of all that has come to mind that you feel the need to accomplish.  Take a breath.  Breathe in. Breathe out.  Get a piece of paper and a pen or open the notes on your phone and ask yourself this question.

WHAT IS MY NEXT RIGHT STEP?

Friends, I have learned that the thought of jumping into the process of achieving your goals can in and of itself be overwhelming so I have learned in my own life to ask myself this question.  WHAT IS MY NEXT RIGHT STEP?  When people ask me for advice about how they should proceed in their own lives, I will ask them the same question... WHAT IS YOUR NEXT RIGHT STEP?  It might be too much to think TEN steps down the road but you can think about that very FIRST step in the direction of your success.   And do not minimize your FIRST step because that first step will lead to the second, the third, the fourth, and so on and you will be gaining momentum as you go.  Then, before you know it, you will be closer to achieving your goals than when you first began simply because you took the first right step to implement your strategy for doing what you want to do, going where you want to go, and becoming who you want to be.  This is what it will take for you to THRIVE

So, BlogFam, it is time for YOU to articulate your strategy for achieving your goals and then it will be time for you to take your first right step.  I pray that you would "be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is... articulate your strategy and take your first right step." [Ephesians 5:15-17]  I pray that you would come to the place of emotional stability so that you will get past whatever is keeping you from moving forward.  I pray that the Lord would answer your prayers to open doors, build relationships, increase your finances, and set your whole house in order for you to move forward.  I pray that you would re-evaluate your connections, re-interpret your fears, and re-imagine your perspective such that you will not allow anyone or anything keep you from moving forward.  I pray that your strategy would be smart, insightful, and clear.  I pray that your next right step would revive your energy, refresh your drive, and reignite your passion to THRIVE as you live your best life!  

GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
Delesslyn
