It is very vital to be completely focussed and sold out to your goal. You cannot afford to be distracted, focus is very important for a vision to be delivered.

 
T o be able to set goals, we must first examine briefly the reason why sometimes its difficult for us to set goals, even when we realise the benefits. We are conscious of the benefit of setting goals, and yet we hold back. This is usually due to the following reasons:

1. Laziness: Sometimes we are just too lazy to be bothered. If a man is lazy, he will never set any goal. The Bible says in Proverbs 6: 5-7 “Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler” The Bible made us understand the ants, despite how organised they are, do not have a commander or overseer, yet they plan for winter, only because of diligence. This is why the Bible directed a lazy man to learn from their prudent ways. A man that can plan, will not need supervision, and will be firmly in control of his life.

2. Lack of Focus or Ambition: If you do not have focus or clear ambition, you are not likely to set any goals. Goals are set by a man or woman who is clear about who and what they want to become. In a football team, a striker who knows his job is to score goals and clearly wants to be the best may set himself a target of scoring an x number of goals in a season. This will urge him and direct his passion throughout the said season. We must be clear in m you are not likely to set any goals.

This will urge him and direct his passion throughout the said season. We must be clear in our mind what we want to achieve, spiritually, physically, financially, it is with clarity that we can develop a desire to set goals.

3. We sometimes don’t know what we need: Sometimes, we simply don’t know what we need for our joy to be full. Many of us, if given a million pounds today may need to spend a week deciding what to do with it, or just misspend it as we are not prepared nor clear on what we want to achieve with our lives. You must identify very early in your life what your purpose is for living. If you have not identified your life purpose, it may be time to go back to the prayer room and ask for direction. It may be time to do some soul searching; prayerfully so you can identify what your passion should be.
