Men…Let’s be honest. 2020 was not our year. We made excuses as to why we could not complete our goals. We failed in our priorities. We failed to lead as we were called to do. As we look back, we can see that in nearly every aspect of our lives, 2020 had some sort of impact, mostly negative I am sure. What is ironic about last year being 2020 is that 20/20 signifies perfect vision. When it comes to our vision and eye sight, we all want 20/20 and we want to be able to achieve that without any sort of corrective lenses. But the truth is that many of us still need corrective lenses to achieve 20/20 vision.
My goal for 2021 this year is to grow in many facets of my life this year. I hope to grow more as a
In order to achieve that growth, I am developing a Growth Plan for 2021. I am not sure yet what it will look like. I hope that it will include some type of mentorship with other men for accountability.
A growth plan is a kind of a guideline, that helps to show the skills one needs to acquire and the goals one needs to achieve by changing the way of your life in a positive direction. Besides, planning about the future gives you better control over their life. Also, it helps to guide them on days when they feel demotivated and down. Having a personal growth plan helps in finding out how effective one is in their everyday life.
If you would be interested in being a part of a mentorship/accountability group, let me know.
How would you like to have a bank
that just gave you money. This bank deposits $86,400 a day into your
account. This money is free for you to use. Free for you to spend
however you want. Sound good?
at the close of business each day you balance is reset to zero and you
lose whatever was left in their for that day. The remaining balance
each day does not carry over to the next. But at the beginning of each
day a new deposit of $86,400 is deposited. There are never any
overdraft fees with this bank. There is no limitations on you as to how
you can spend this money.
would you do with your money then? What would you do each day with
$86,400 to spend? Would you withdrawal all of it and invest it in your
future or would you go blow it all where ever you could? At the end of
each day, would you have anything to show for the money that you spent?
Who wouldn't want a bank like this one? Who wouldn't want free money? Who wouldn't invest it in their future?
Believe it or not, you have an account at a similar bank. You
have access to the Bank of Time. You are given 86,400 seconds each and
everyday to use however you want. You can invest it or you can blow it.
At the end of each day the remaining time is lost never to be given
back. At the start of each day you are given a new deposit of 86,400
seconds to use for that day.
will never have overdraft charges. You will never be charged withdrawal
fees. You are free to spend your time however you choose.
The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes that there is a time and a season for everything.
Ecclesiastes chapter 3 verses 1-8
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under
Heaven: 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a
time to uproot, 3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear
down and a time to build, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time
to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to
gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, 6 a time to
search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to
speak, 8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time
for peace. I
leave you with this thought for today: If you would take $86,400 and
invest it in your future, why wont you take 86,400 seconds that you are
given daily and do the same?
