The next few days hold enormous potential in your life, and I want to share 3 vital tips to make sure 2017 goes down in history as an extraordinary year in your life. They say, â€œAllâ€™s well that ends well,â€ and I believe thatâ€™s true. How you end this year will determine the strength of the next, so letâ€™s make the most of these last hours of this year.
Here are 3 tips that have helped me tremendously in my own life:
1. Carve out some time to reflect. Even 1 hour spent well at the end of the year can help you start 2018 out right. Find some time to get alone and think deeply about how youâ€™d like to move forward. These 3 questions have helped me get clear and get moving: (1) Whatâ€™s HOT? What would you like to continue? (2) Whatâ€™s NOT? What would you like to change? (3) Whatâ€™s NEXT? What are you going to prioritize in 2018?
2. Decide to be generous. If you want to do something significant for the Kingdom of God this year, consider making a year-end gift to your church. With the upcoming changes in tax law, there is no time like the present. If youâ€™ve been blessed, you can be a blessing in return. This is a pivotal time for many ministries, and your generosity can help more than you know.
3. Clear up any unresolved conflict. You have just a few more days to end 2017 without a grudge. After all, what really matters? Consider apologizing, forgiving, and encouraging those you love.
Personally, Iâ€™m really excited to start a new year, and I have high hopes for you as well. Let’s be committed to taking our next right steps and reaching our potential in the year to come.
