There I was sitting down looking at my list and feeling like a big failure. I didn't accomplish anything I had set about doing.
Nothing was crossed off
"I am so tired of being so tired!" I screamed on the inside.
"I'm tired of spinning my wheels and not actually accomplishing anything"
"I'm tired of feeling like a failure!"
And then I heard it... You are not a failure. You are My beloved.
"But God why is this so hard?!?! Why can't I get anything done?"
As I sat there and called out to God in my prayers of frustrations two things became apparently clear to me.
I was spinning my wheels focusing on the wrong things, and because I was focusing on things that weren't important, I wasn't living the abundant life that Jesus came and died for.
The items on my to-do list -- which I had mistakenly referred to as goals -- had nothing to do with what actually mattered in the grand scheme of things.
They were so far off from priorities that I didn't recognize them as life suckers.
That was over two years ago, now I have an entirely different approach... a more grace-filled, life-giving and intentional approach to goal setting.
Are you working hard towards tasks that don't add value to your life?
Tired of creating goals that you don't, or can't, accomplish?
Want to live with purpose, intention, and meaning?
You're not alone.
I too used to feel totally overwhelmed when it came to setting, and keeping, goals. I created these long lists of unrealistic goals but what I was failing to do was actually recognize and identify what was truly important to me in the current life stage.
I am a big fan of goal setting. Goals have the ability to change your life, add purpose and value, and allow you to finally accomplish some things you have always wanted to do, but just never got around to it.
I have been setting goals for myself for the past two years and have been amazed at just how much I have accomplished when my focus is priorities-based. I used to set too many goals resulting in goals not being met and feeling like a failure.
And that's why Goals with Grace was created.
I was tired of feeling defeated at the end of every year, month, week or even at the end of every day!
I was tired of spending the time setting goals but not actually creating a plan as to how I would accomplish them.
I knew there had to be a better way.
And there was... creating grace-based goals that align with the things I truly deemed important in my life.
Goals with Grace was created out of a desire for a goal planning system that did just that!
It walks you through the process that I have worked through to help you examine your priorities and create realistic, attainable goals that align
Best of all... you will create an action plan that will help you work towards completing those goals!
