Many times I’ve said something like this to myself…
“I’m going to change .” Or,
“I’ll never do again.” Or,
“I’m going to “.
I meant it when I said it… but after a few weeks I realized… I didn’t do it!
Most of the time the reason I didn’t do it was because I did not answer this question…
How am I going to change? How am I going to stop? How am I going to start?
An idea without a plan is a miscarriage waiting to happen.
If you REALLY want to change something in your life… answer this question…
When you begin thinking “how” let me encourage you to think “daily.” This wisdom from John C. Maxwell tells us why…
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. That means developing great habits. […] Ultimately, people do not decide their future; they decide their habits and their habits decide their future.”
What would happen in your life if you decided to do something different for the next 30 days?
- Eat no sweets
- Exercise daily
- No Facebook
- 30 minutes per day focused on your child
- 10 minutes of prayer
- Read a chapter a day in a book
- Spend 10 minutes per day organizing your garage
