Thursday Thought: Committing Your Goals To Writing

The link below will take you to a post you should read. I have found what Michael Hyatt shares in this post to be very true. There is something about writing down your goals that makes them more likely to happen.

I was challenged by this concept when I read Debbie Macomber's book Knit Together. (A book I think all writers-- fiction or non-- should read.) She talked about making a list of people she'd like to meet, and how ever since she made that list, God has opened doors for her to meet those people in miraculous ways. Not all of them, but many of them. Her story challenged me.

Last summer I made a "dream endorsers" list. I wrote down some people I could only dream of knowing well enough to ask them to endorse my book. Do you know in the year since I made that list, a few of those people have come into my life in some pretty amazing ways? And now I wouldn't hesitate to ask them to endorse my book.

So I am a big believer in writing down your goals. Don't have any goals? Then that's your homework for today! Think of some goals-- physical, spiritual, health, intellectual, business, personal, marriage, parenting... you get the idea. Then write them down.

This will be my last Thursday Thought for a month. I will be back in August!
Pin It!

Thank you, friend -- for the ways your life is a testament to Him, the Word.

Writing down prayerful, humble goals tonight -- to leave in His good and sovereign hands.

Grateful for you!
