Am I starting this year off on the wrong foot?

...My stance this year is not due to lack of planning or thinking, neither am I encouraging inactivity. I am also not advocating you go through life with no direction, plan, purpose or desire to improve yourself.
I just feel that I need to start doing things for the right reasons and not just for the sake of it. I have found that if I have not specifically been lead of God to take a particular route or start something, then it often fizzles out as quickly as it started.

The reason we often fail miserably at resolutions is that we like the potential outcome the idea poses, but we do not like the process or change required to getting there. If the truth be told, all too often that change is just too big of a requirement on our current lifestyle.

You may have dreams and aspirations, but the timing to execute them may not necessarily be now. I am steadily realising that there is often a lot of learning and plenty of prep that is necessary before I am anywhere near ready, which is also true of some of the biblical examples before me.  
That is why I am applying the same principles of planning ahead and taking time out before I embark upon any new project (resolution).

There are things that I am doing now, that I know I could not have done a couple of years before. A lot of growing has happened in between and I have changed in the process. This in turn has helped build me up to the state where I can handle the challenges that come with that particular task. In the same line, there are things that I am not ready for now, but I know I will be in the future.

Hence forth, if the conviction and passion to see change through is not there, then I am not going to do it.

So take heart, hold on, be patient and take each season and phase as it comes.
DO NOT look around and compare your progress or activity to others, because that is the quickest way to get distracted from your course.

Watch this video with an open heart and I hope you understand where I am coming from.
