My Year-end Questions

Hi to my few and valuable reader(s)!

I am just too excited for the year end because it grasps me for more opportunities for new things, new ideas, new goals, new plans, new experience, new friends and new wisdom for the New Year.  I don’t know,,, but a brand new year always thrills me for everything about my life.  How about you, can you relate? Do you want some transformation for the coming year? How excited you are to face 2014? Be optimistic and act now!

For the last part of 2013,  I made some different acts to improve myself by reading, increasing my financial literacy and finding a true happiness that I can barely share to everyone.  And I realized that assessment is quite important in pursuing my purpose in life.  With the help of Valorie Burton, she gave me an idea to five questions that will offer me an opportunity to grow and consider better possibilities in my life.
I am happy to share it to you.  Maybe it will help you also in discerning your goals and focus on the coming 2014.

You can start your journal(like what I'm going to do) by answering the following questions as a better start for your prosperous new year.  Now, prepare your journal book and copy these questions. 

1.      What is the biggest lesson God has offered me over the last year?

When we take time to learn the lessons that our trials and triumphs teach us, God is able to mold our character and use us in greater ways. When you ignore the lessons of life, you often find yourself repeating the same mistakes and enduring the same challenges time and time again.

2.      What is my "divine assignment" at this stage of my life? 
 Our purpose can transform over a lifetime. In order to remain in synch with God's timing and purposes, we must seek His "assignment" in the various seasons of our lives.

3.      This time next year, what would I like to see different in my life?
In other words, what's my vision?  You need a vision for where you are going in the coming year. No matter how insignificant you think your life is, God wants you to be deliberate about setting goals and moving forward. God's word tells us to "write the vision and make it plain" (Habakkuk 3:2). That means we should write it down and make it clear and specific. Don't overwhelm yourself with a lot of "New Year's resolutions." Instead, choose something meaningful, even if it is a seemingly small change, and take deliberate steps forward.

4.      What have I been procrastinating about? 
Putting off goals and things that God has laid on your heart to do is stressful. Fear is often the culprit and the New Year is a great time to ask yourself if it is time to get unstuck and pursue certain goals or drop them altogether, thus freeing yourself from the burden of an incomplete task hanging over your head.

5.      How could I make more of a positive difference in the lives of others in the next 12 months? 
Our lives really aren't about us. They are about the purpose for which we were created. What is it that you'd like to do by this time next year that will impact others in a meaningful and positive way?

Let’s be reflective and notice what we’ve learned and what we’ve accomplished this year that makes us happy and purposeful.

Celebrate our progress and keep moving forward!

Happy New Year to everyone!
