A goal is a dream with a plan and deadline. God wants you to win and keep winning; but it is impossible to win without a goal and an action plan. Your goal needs to be well defined and in writing. It must be attainable in your mind. Somebody said the reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them.

STEPS TO FOLLOW
• Determine your present position, Genesis 24 v 1: You’ve got to know where you are before you know where you are going.
• What would you like to change? Spiritually, financially or materially? Be specific about what you want, e.g Abraham told Eliezier exactly what kind of wife he wanted for Isaac, Genesis 24 v 3-4.
• Look for God’s promise: Don’t focus on the problem but on the promises because God said I’ll be with you no matter where you go. God is always with you whether you feel it or not.
• Ask God to help you: Pray about the goal seriously.
• Identify the barriers, Genesis 24 v 5.
• Create a step by step plan, Psalm 20 v 4.
• Be patient and persistent: Your goal won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily and surely. If it seems slow, do not despair for it will surely come to pass. Nothing great is accomplished without persistence and patience.
• Enlist a team for support: One person standing alone is easily attacked and defeated. An African adage says if you want to go fast, go by yourself but if you want to go far, go with others.
• You must be ready to pay the price: Ask yourself what will it cost (what am I willing to give? Is it worth it?) Don’t begin working toward your goals until you’ve counted the cost.
DON’T FORGET THAT ANY GOAL NOT ACTIONED IS AUTOMATICALLY AUCTIONED
No wonder, Habakkuk 2 v 2 says “…write the vision and make it plain upon tables that he may run that readeth it”.
I encourage you to set big, exciting life changing goals and work them relentlessly with purpose and passion until you turn them into reality with God, nothing shall be impossible.
Finally, for you to be able to reach your promise land you must let God have His way in your life. If you are not born again in Christ, you are on your own.  Therefore accept today for tomorrow may be too late.
