How Bad Do You Want it In 2014?

"Don't give up.  No!  Rather take courage.  Do not let your hands be weak.  For your work shall be rewarded."  2 Chronicles 15:7

There are goals you want to accomplish in 2014.  There are dreams you want to see come true in 2014.  There are steps you want to take in 2014.  There are projects you want to see completed in 2014.  There are new heights you want to reach in 2014.

My question.  How bad do you want it?

I know you want it, but do you want it bad enough to do whatever it takes to make it happen?

Do you want it bad enough to set the alarm for an hour earlier every day?

Do you want it bad enough to give up some sleep for it?

Do you want it bad enough to sacrifice for it?

Do you want it bad enough to stay up late at night?

Do you want it bad enough to turn off the TV?

Do you want it bad enough to change your lifestyle?

Do you want it bad enough to make your new year's resolutions last past February?

Do you want it bad enough to give up personal habits to make it a reality?

If you need some inspiration to jump start you into the new year, then read this story about Rocky.

If you want it bad encough, then you will hit your goal.

2 years ago I tipped the scales at 230 pounds.  I had lost weight before but always gained it back...because I wanted it...but not bad enough.

Finally, I reached the point where I said, "This is it.  I'm going to do whatever it takes to get in shape and stay in shape." 

For me, this means drinking nothing but water.

For me, this means working out for an hour 6 days a week.

For me, this means not eating any breads or desserts.

For me, this means eating fruit instead of candy.

For me, this means not eating anything after dinner.

For me, this means a lifestyle change instead of a diet.

The result...50 pounds lighter and 8 pants sizes smaller.                                                                                           
I know you want it.  But how bad?  Bad enough to do whatever it takes?

2014 is your year...if you want it....really bad.

This a good challenge. Any worth goal includes taking new territory and we have to be ready to pay the price in order to obtain that goal. Reading further in 2 Chronicles 15:12 says that they entered into a covenant with God to seek Him with all their heart and soul. In verse 15 they reached their goal - they found God and He gave them rest from their enemies. Thank you for a practical challenge

Appreciate the kind words Michael. May 2014 be a great year for you.
