I can almost guarantee you that in January, especially at the new year’s eve, very many pronouncements will be made across the globe for 2013. Here is my prediction on just some of the pronouncements you will hear:
Notice also that all these prophecies are to their credit, always positive. To the best of my spiritual knowledge, prophecies are normally a double aged sword…cutting both the good and the bad…but I digress…The list can go on and on and on. Normally it is someone in spiritual authority who makes these declarations, and then the spiritual subjects start aligning their lives in the year in anticipation for the fulfillment of the prophecies.
The problem however normally arises as the year progresses…more and more people realize that there is a very big chasm between these declarations and the reality on the ground. The year of favor for example turns out to be the year of pain and disillusionment.
The year of prosperity turns out to be the year of lack, struggle and financial ruin. The year of open doors turns out to be the year of closed heavens.
I have been having this gut feeling that as far as this subject is concerned, visionaries for once need to ignore their spiritual leaders and listen to Life Coaches! Now this is seriously controversial to the super-spiritual, so you better hang on as I explain.
The folly of making new year resolutions goes hand in hand with the mistake of waiting for someone to ‘decree’ what kind of a year it will be so we can follow.
New year resolutions are normally emotional decisions (although very well meaning) that lack strategic plans, commitment, and accountability structures to see them through in the long haul. We need to move away from them as fast as possible and embrace the discipline of goal-setting.
New year declarations are normally inspirational statements spoken at a psychological new opportunity by a spiritual authority ostensibly to give direction of where the year would go. The following are some characteristics of these pronouncements:
You have a choice to wait for what your man of God says 2013 will turn out to be. You also have this wonderful choice to hire a Life Coach to help you design not just your 2013, but even the years beyond. Such a professional will help you track your progress, and help you get unstuck whenever things get thick.
Between new year resolutions and Goals, what do you think will give you a better chance for success in 2013?So, between your preacher and the Life Coach I am talking about…whom do you think has a better chance to impact your progress in 2013?
Between you taking personal charge of your destiny in 2013 and waiting for the preacher to declare what year it could turn out to be…which is the better option?
Think about that.
