Do you live with a plan? What values drive what you do? Do you have goals?
Plans, values, and goals help us to live strategically.
We must live our lives similar to running a business. We must make intentional decisions that are all focused on bringing us back the results that we desire. What results do you want to see from your life? If we don’t know what we’d like our future to look like, then it’s likely that we aren’t making the best decisions today.
What we do today shapes our tomorrow.
In order to live strategically, we must have an idea of why we are living. Yes, this takes a lot of effort and groundwork, but it’s worth it. Once we get a strong foundation (clear from debris and trash) then we are able to start building up. We can’t start building, though, without a strong foundation. Well, we can but it will be in vain. We have to take the trash out first.
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5
No, we’re not all ordained to be prophets, but God knew us all before we left the womb. God operates strategically and purposefully, so there is no way He would have created us if there was no need for us. There is a need for us on this earth.
God has something that He needs each of us to do.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:10
We are created in Christ Jesus to do good works.
What work do you need to be doing?
You must get your plan from the Creator. Once you get your plan and purpose from Him, then you must begin to live strategically in order to manifest the life He has for you to live while on earth.
It’s not easy, but it’s worth it. It will take work, but anything worth having won’t come easy.
“For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.” – Ecclesiastes 5:3
Handle your business. Work more, talk less.
Go get what’s yours. In order to get it, you must live strategically.
We can do it.
