  • 1. What are your resolutions for 2012?January 5, 2012RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012
  • 2. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 Purpose: To examine what our greatest resolutions should be in 2012. Objective: To understand that being a good person is more than just a few new years resolutions it is a life time commitment to change and growth. No one is perfect. Wait a minute. I take that back – Ruby Frazier, my wife. Now that’s perfection. We are all trying to live by some rules or standards that can make us better people. The law of God has been written on our hearts so we know intuitively and instinctively what is right and what is wrong.
  • 3. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 Mat 22:35 KJV - Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a question], tempting him, and saying, Mat 22:36 KJV - Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law? Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. In other words these two commandments fulfilled all that the law required and the prophets proclaim from God.
  • 4. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 If we were to achieve just these two commandments I believe that we would be able to achieve all of our resolutions in life. Love God and love our neighbor as thyself. How can something so simple be so complicated to work out in our lives.
  • 5. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 Since all of the law and prophets hang on these two commandments then everything else in life must hang on them too. As we make resolutions for our life we must keep in mind that every resolution is related in some way to loving God and loving our neighbor.
  • 6. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 So, Have you started making your resolutions yet? Many of you have not. I have I write them every year. It is not that I am better than you because I am not. I am glutton for punishment and I will tell you why I say that later on.
  • 7. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 Resolution is from the Latin word resolutio. It means "to determine or decide upon a course of action, from around 1523 A.D.  Prior to 1523 A.D. the word meant "to loosen or dissolve again," which was the original meaning of resolve.
  • 8. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 Resolutions – So why haven’t we chosen a course of action?  Because we hate resolutions  We dread reliving the past in order to decide on the future  We do not want to hold ourselves accountable to change  We do not want to tell other people about our resolutions because they will hold us accountable.
  • 9. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 So What have you resolved to do in 2012? Go ahead speak it into the universe and write it down later.
  • 10. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 A resolution is a pledge to make a change in our behavior that will enable us to achieve our goals. Many people think that resolutions are the goals they want to achieved.
  • 11. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 This is why most people including myself do not achieve the resolutions or the goals we set at the beginning of the year. The goals we set never had a chance because we were never resolute in changing our behavior.
  • 12. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 To be resolute is to be firm, unyielding and unwavering in your decisions. It is the state of being bound emotionally and intellectually to a course of action that will enable you to achieve your goal.
  • 13. RESOLUTIONS FOR 2012 We have to want it in our hearts and minds first, before it will shows up in hands and feet.
  • 14. RESOLUTIONS IN 2012 What are the changes in my behavior that I need to make in 2012.  What am I resolving to do? I am going to help you out here: There are Six categories in 2012 we all need to work on: 1. Spiritual Growth 2. Marriage & Family Relationships 3. Career Development 4. Physical and Emotional Health 5. Financial Health and Wealth management 6. Personal development
  • 15. RESOLUTIONS IN 2012 Spiritual Growth is #1  Itis more than a goal: Desire (Passion) Desire + Activities = Change in behavior Change + Time = Spiritual Growth  Spiritual growth is the result of Passion, Consistent activities, over Time.  Activities = can change behavior.  But It does not happen overnight
  • 16. RESOLUTIONS IN 2012 Spiritual Growth  Activities that lead to Spiritual Growth: Consistent Prayer life Consistent Bible reading and study Consistent Christian fellowship Consistent Positive and Spiritual relationship Consistent Church attendance Consistent Sharing of your faith with others
  • 17. RESOLUTIONS IN 2010 Now that we have an outline decide on what you want to do to grow spiritually. Who is going to hold you accountable? What exactly are you going to do? When are you going to do it? Where are you going to do it? How are you going to make it happen? Why do you want to make it happen?
  • 18. RESOLUTIONS IN 2010 Spiritual Growth #1  Activities that lead to Spiritual Growth:  Consistent Prayer life  Consistent Bible reading and study  Consistent Christian fellowship  Consistent Positive and Spiritual relationship  Consistent Church attendance  Consistent Sharing of your faith with others  Completing the activities leads to achieving the Goals
  • 19. RESOLUTIONS IN 2010 S.M.A.R.T Goals SMART is an (Acronym). Each letter represents a very important aspect of Goal setting. Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Time bound
  • 20. S.M.A.R.T GOALS Specific - A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six "W" questions:  *Who: Who is involved? *What: What do I want to accomplish? *Where: Identify a location. *When: Establish a time frame. *Which: Identify requirements and constraints. *Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
  • 21. S.M.A.R.T GOALS Measurable - Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set. When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to work even harder to reach your goal. To determine if your goal is measurable, ask questions such as......How much? How many? How will I know when it is accomplished?
  • 22. S.M.A.R.T GOALS Attainable - When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.
  • 23. S.M.A.R.T GOALS Realistic - To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be. But be sure that every goal represents substantial progress. A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Your goal is probably realistic if you truly believe that it can be accomplished. What conditions would have to exist to accomplish this goal is the question to be asked.
  • 24. S.M.A.R.T GOALSTimely - A goal should be grounded within a time frame. With no time frame tied to it theres no sense of urgency. If you want to lose 10 lbs, when do you want to lose it by? "Someday" wont work. But if you anchor it within a timeframe, "by May 1st", then youve set your unconscious mind into motion to begin working on the goal.
  • 25. S.M.A.R.T GOALS T can also stand for Tangible - A goal is tangible when you can experience it with one of the five senses: Taste, touch, smell, sight or hearing. When your goal is tangible you have a better chance of making it specific and measurable and thus attainable.
  • 26. RESOLUTIONS IN 2010 My resolutions in 2008, 2009, 2010 were not resolutions at all. They were goals. Which is why I didn’t achieve any of them. As goals they were not all S.M.A.R.T which is another reason why I didn’t achieve them.
