Often we categorize our lives in to several different areas. Social, Mental, Spiritual, Financial, Physical, Family etc. How you break it up is your choice, but I've found that if we will set up categories and reflect on each, we will find specific things we want to change or improve. This is where goals come into play. Goal are not to discourage us or make us feel that we have failed, but rather a way to measure our personal progress. Goals are to make ourselves stretch and grow so that we may achieve our full potential. We need to set goals that are both realistic and will help us amplify our personal abilities.
This is the time of year to set goals and make necessary plans to make them a reality. President Thomas S. Monson has said, "Goals are only dreams until actions happen." As we set worthy goals in life we need to trust the Lord and have enough faith to move forward and "make" them happen. It is the same with any principle in the gospel. (John7:17) May this coming year be full of joy and success in all you do.
