There are two very important questions you should ask yourself when setting goals.
1.What are your biggest challenges when attempting to accomplish your goals? 2.How do you currently handle change and challenges?
Goal setting can help you manage change and develop resiliency. Basically, managing change goes along with how well you handle, what I often say, “Life Cards”. You know those circumstances that come at you so unexpectedly that you barely have time to figure out a plan of how to handle them? Resiliency means “bouncing back” from difficult and shocking experiences. It involves the the process of adapting well as a result of adversity and stress in your life.
As you move through this goal setting process here are some important factors to keep in mind:
1. Form a network of support.
First and foremost rely on The Creator because He will never let you down. Seek aid with Him first. Next,Form a support system with family, friends and members of your community.Good relationships are key to building strong resilience. Accepting help and support from others also strengthens resiliency.
2. Avoid seeing crises as “the end of the world”.
You can’t alter stressful events, but you can control how you react to them.
3. Accept change as being an inevitable part of living.
Accepting circumstances that cannot be altered can help you gain a better focus on circumstances that you can alter.
4. Move forward and take action towards your (realistic) goals.
Think!…”What’s one thing I can achieve today that helps me move forward to where I want to be?” Make sure to develop a system of core values and principles to work along with your life’s mission.
5. Take Massive action.
Act rather than avoid or detach from problems. Wishing they go away won’t do you any good!
Until next time…Think positive, Do Things Positive, and Stay Positive!!!

If you’re ever out camping or just exploring the woods in the country and you come across Mr. grizzly bear, here are two things you absolutely never want to do:
1.Run away as fast as you can
2.Climb a tree
Ok you’re probably thinking, “so what in the world should I do?”lol Well here is what you do:
1.STAND YOUR GROUND and DON’T TURN AROUND!!!
Even if it begins to chase after you.
STAND TALL AND DON’T BACK DOWN!
If you attempt to run, it will chase you,catch you, and make you the main course at meal time!
What has all of this got to do with fear, you ask?
Well it has everything to do with fear.
We all have something that we’re afraid of.
I’m not only talking about heights or creepy crawling insects and spiders!
I’m talking about things like the fear of failure or rejection.
I’m talking about the insecurities that we all have within us.
I’m talking about having our lives governed by how others think of us.
I’m talking about our irrational fears that cause us to continuously run away from all aspects in life.
But here’s what you must come to know.
Your fears chase after you when you run, just like Mr. grizzly bear.
They hunt you down and they taunt you.
They cause you to loose sleep at night.
They won’t back down.
Here is what you do:
Since your fears are like Mr. Grizzly Bear, here is what you want to do for sure:
Stand your ground and face your fears,they will lose their power and no longer have control over you.
They will back down leaving you to wonder why you were so afraid to face them.
Think Positive, Do Things Positive, and Stay Positive!!!
