GIVEAWAY! – Motivation Monday: Setting Goals

By April 4, 2010General

New Weekly Giveaway

Update: This giveaway is closed.

We’re doing a giveaway here at Inspired To Action, today. I thought it would be fun to give you a little extra incentive to act on the things that we’ve been discussing.

Anyone who takes some sort of action can enter to win. Your action might be:

  • getting up early, reading your Bible
  • going on a date with your kids
  • creating a mission statement
  • exercising
  • creating a meal plan
  • Writing a goal

It can be any action that improves who you are as a believer or a mother.

The today’s giveaway is from one of my FAVORITE artists. The Robbie Seay Band is in frequent rotation in my house. In fact, a friend and I just went to their concert last week. Amazing.

Gorgeous music, gorgeous lyrics.

Get all the contest details at the end of this post.

Why Moms Need Goals

This week we’re talking about the importance of goals and how they can compliment those mission statements we discussed a couple weeks ago.

Having a mission statement can help us make sure we’re headed in the right direction, but if we really want to be effective in our roles, we must set goals. For ourselves and for our children.

A mission statement is like picking a vacation spot. And our goals are like the road map to get there. I could decide I want to go to Tahoe on my 2 week vacation, but unless I map my route, I’ll never arrive. It will remain a dream and never become a reality.

Raising children isn’t just about feeding them and keeping them alive. It’s about training them and helping them set goals and succeed. Success requires vision. And vision doesn’t become a reality without a plan.

Without goals we waste so much energy and time running after things that don’t matter.

Action Step

This week we will discuss goal setting. If you haven’t created a mission statement then I encourage you to develop a draft today so that you can join us in setting goals this week.
