Don't Lose Sight Of Your Goals

13

Don’t Lose Sight Of Your Goals Sun, 12 Sep 2021 ‘His heart is established; he will not be afraid.’ Psalm 112:8 To achieve success in life there are three obstacles you’ll have to be aware of and overcome: (1) Weariness. Racehorses run at approximately the same speed; sometimes the difference between winning and losing the race comes down to their ‘heart’ to win. So, look into your heart today and see if you are truly committed. ‘Do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise.’ (Hebrews 10:35–36 NKJV) (2) Fear. When it comes to commitment, there are four kinds of people. a) Cop-outs: people who have no goals and who don’t commit. b) Hold-outs: people who don’t know if they can reach their goals so they’re afraid to commit. c) Drop-outs: people who start towards a goal but give up when the going gets tough. d) All-outs: people who set goals, commit to them and pay the price to reach them. Which one of the four are you? Fear and faith will always be present in your life, and the one you choose will determine whether you succeed or fail. (3) Complacency. Successful businessman Ray Kroc said, ‘As long as you’re green, you’re growing. As soon as you’re ripe, you start to rot.’ If you’re wise, you’ll take regular rest periods to refresh, renew, and refocus. But you must not settle for yesterday’s successes, or coast on today’s momentum. Be like Paul: ‘I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race.’ (Philippians 3:13–14 NLT)
