Setting goals 2019

It’s 2019 and we all have our ideas of how we would like 2019 to go. What are the goals that you have set for 2019? Is there anything specific that you would like to accomplish in 2019 that you wish you had done in 2018? Did you have goals for 2018 that you did not meet?

2 Chronicles 15:7 “But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”

I have to admit there are some times that I do want to give up. There could be several reasons but I think the biggest one is that in some areas I’m just lazy. Do you seriously want to be that guy that says “I don’t want to change because I’m lazy?”

The thought process could be like this .

I’ve settled for who I am, nothing’s going to change because I’m not going to do anything to change.

I have potential to do anything I want to do I do not want to have unfulfilled potential.

I have a question I would like to ask you? Have you written down your goals for 2019? What are you going to do to change or to improve Who You Are? I would not ask you this question if I had not written down my own goals myself.

In the Law of intentionality James Allen says “people are anxious to improve their circumstances but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound.”

In the Law of diminishing intent John Maxwell says “the longer you wait to do something you should do now, the greater the odds that you will never actually do it.”

I would like to suggest that you read a book to start off 2019. That book is the 15 invaluable laws of growth by John Maxwell. I have read this book twice now since August 24th 2018 and I have to say, I have had a paradigm shift and how I think, how I write and in how I conduct myself. By far the most biggest thing I have taken away from the 15 laws is how to bring value too people. I do still fail in this department at times but they are getting farther and farther apart.

The biggest complaint that I have is that I wish I hadn’t waited so long to read this book I have seen it for years.

Before you say I’m too old to change or too many things have happened in my life I’m stuck. whatever your excuse may be you are never too late to change. John Maxwell is over 70 years old and he still reads three to four books a month. He is constantly reading and studying to improve on who he is. So if he can do it at 71 I can do it at 57

I leave you with this. How bold do you want to be? Bold enough that you will list some of your goals in a response to this post? When you have written your goals down now it’s real.

So let’s say you.

So I am literally asking you to respond to this post with some of your goals for 2019.

  1. I will start with some of my goals.
    1. Honor and cherish my wife
    2. Work on and recognize my selfishness
    3. Better nutrition cut out the sweets
    4. I have joined Toastmasters to help improve my communication skills.
    5. Walk 10 miles a week and exercise in a weight room 5 hours a week.
    6. Read 12 books this year
    7. Add 50 lb to my flat bench and 50 lb to my deadlift.
    8. Study John Maxwell material at least one hour per day.
    9. Spend time with the Lord everyday however that looks.
    10. Journal at least 6 days a week


  2. My main goal is to spend more intimate time with God. That in and of itself will in turn give focus to what Daddy reveals that He wants me to “walk out” in 2019.

    Personally I want to loose at least 25-30 pounds. This will help manage my blood sugar and make recovery from double knee replacement this spring easier.

    When ministering to others I want my words to be focused on the other person and.. to be God’s words not mine.

    I want more of Jesus and less of me to be seen and heard – all the time. Again I know the more I walk with Jesus – the more I resemble Him.
