1 Make a Desires of Your Heart list
Take a moment to ask yourself some questions. Write down your answers!
Have you given up on achieving or accomplishing any goals or desires in your life?
Are there things you would like to do, but you are not sure how to get started or what steps to take next?
If you have not done so already, make a Desires of Your Heart list.
Write down some of your heart’s desires. Allow yourself to just write. And do not worry about what should
or should not be on the list. Be honest with yourself.
2 Take one simple step
You can turn your frustration and dissatisfaction into action.
We often avoid change because it is painful. Dissatisfaction with our lives can sometimes be a complicated thing to address.
We often avoid what we know we need to do by distracting ourselves
with something else.
Look at your Desires of My Heart list and choose just one item.
Now, what is one simple step you can take, right now, towards
making that one item a reality? Or what can you do today to find out more about it?
Maybe you can find a book on the subject, do some research, sign up for a class, download an application or reach
out to mend a relationship.
List what you want to accomplish and what it will take for you to do it. It is amazing what will happen over time as you keep taking small steps.
You will find that new creativity will flow! And after a few months, you will have accomplished a lot.
Taking time to gain clarity on what the desires of your heart are — and moving
one small step at a time towards your life purpose — will help you begin to build your life.
You will be amazed at what God can do through you.
on! Things are accelerating.
