Setting goals and dreaming in the New Year!

Life is a journey, do it and do it well. There are so many things we need to do in life; in our family, work place and neighbourhood. The Ganda Life Planner is my personal story of what has worked for me in all aspects of my life. I will be sharing with you my story and planning tools that you can borrow to help you achieve your dreams in all areas of your life. Hope you enjoy it!

So where do we begin from….

The beginning of the year is always the most exciting part of the year for many of us. The previous year is gone, and we are simply thankful that we made it to 2019, despite everything that has been happening around us and I must say in 2018 so much happened.

In the new year the most natural thought for me, is that it’s an opportunity to start afresh and close some doors to things that weren’t working well in 2018. We shouldn’t lie to ourselves. Personally, I didn’t achieve everything I set out to achieve and in fact I lapsed in some areas; unfinished projects, broken promises and resolutions shelved. But guess what, forget all that, it’s a new year and as I said before it’s a new start.

So, what does the new start mean. It’s a time to dream afresh in all aspects of our life. From family, career, business, Lord and yes, your lover. Dream, and dream big. No inhibitions. Your reality will be shaped by your mind, your FEARS and your pocket but I know that even that is limiting your dreams.

Over the years I have been in the habit of planning with my family. I find that it helps to map out clearly what we want to do with our time and use other resources appropriately. It’s also an opportunity to spend time understanding my children and their interests. About 5 years ago we did a vision board or commonly known as a dream board. It’s simple and fun for all ages. I would highly recommend that you try it.

All you need is simple wooden board, you can use ply wood or even manila, old magazines, glue and a scissors. Ask yourselves two questions. “what is my dream or what do I want to achieve”. Cut out and stick pictures from the magazine that reflect your dreams. They say if you can dream it, you can achieve it and having the dream board prominently displayed somewhere in your home is a constant reminder of your goals. You will find your thoughts focused, your networks and all your energy being drawn towards your goals. Some may say it’s the Law of Attraction while we can also liken it to what Habakkuk did in the seventh century when God gave him a vision that came to pass. Whatever it is, I can testify that it works but ask God in solitude what his plan for you is, what he wants you to achieve and to bless your plans (Reflection points PS. 127 & Prov 16. 3).

May your new year be filled with lots of dreams and may you begin to work towards achieving those dreams. Try doing the dream board with your family or friends and tell me how it goes. Next week I will share with you how we can practically move from dreaming to achieving those dreams.

Happy week!
