“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.” – 1 Corinthians 9:24
Many years ago a Yale University study found that 3% of the students had written down specific goals. Twenty-two years later, a follow-up with those students revealed that the goal-writing 3% had achieved more than the other 97% put together. They were not drifters. They had goals in their life. Sociologists find that 95% of people never have any written goals, but of the 5% that do have written goals, 95% of that 5% have reached their goals.
Write down today some goals for yourself in the coming year. We are body, soul, and spirit, so make 3 divisions: On one page write “Spiritual Goals.” On the second write “Physical Goals.” And on the third write “Personal Goals.” Do you have a goal? Do you have a vision? Be one of the 5%, not the 95%.
