Your plan is only as good as your execution.
Ask me what my priorities were 10 years ago, my answer will be a lot different from my priorities today.
10 years ago, my eldest son was just for 4 years old while my second is just newly born. I have two kids then. Now I have three. My family has grown bigger. It seems that we are done with milk and diapers. Now I am thinking of how to pay for their college education.
Ask me what my business goals were a decade ago, you'll also find out that it's also very different from my goals today. I was more aggressive then, I'm a bit more conservative now. The ups and downs I went thru in business (and in life) has thought me well how to move both in faith and in wisdom.
Our priorities will change over time. What mattered to you before, may not be the same thing that matters to you today.
Your responsibilities will become broader. Eventually, your perspective will shift from short-term to long-term.The stakes will always change.
You can't live today with the same thinking you had 10 years ago. Somehow, you need to re-evaluate where you stand. You need to re-examine the way you do things. You need to find out what really matters to you today.
Keep in mind:
1. Re-evaluate your priorities.
2. Focus on what matters today.
3. Commit to continuous improvement.
"Seek" is a proactive word. It means to "attempt to find" or "to attempt to obtain or achieve."
Many times we don't seek (or attempt) because we are afraid that we won't find anything.
The good news is that if you seek, you will find. But you have to look in the right direction. Contrary to many beliefs, we are not in control of our own lives. We need to seek the One who is.
We may not even know what's best for us, but God surely knows.
Many people make a 'wish list' and hope that their dreams/goals in life will just come to pass. That's hardly how things work. God isn't a genie in a lamp.
You need to respond to His will. It may be risky. It may look impossible. It may not even make sense. But with faith, you can believe.
But don't stop there. You'll also need to take action. You need to believe not only that He will grant favor upon you, but that He will also enable you. (No matter how challenging the task seems.)
Stop waiting and start seeking.
Don't worry, you'll know it when it's time to respond.
