So I do not run without a goal. I fight like a boxer who is hitting something—not just the air. 1 Corinthians 9:26 (NCV)
Goals can be what keep you moving forward when you feel like giving up. They are like magnets that pull you forward and give you hope.
To set specific goals, though, you need to know the difference between pressures and priorities. You need to know the difference between activity and achievement, between what’s urgent and what’s important. You need to know what matters most. If you focus your energy on goals that aren’t God-directed, your energy won’t have much power. Energy that is focused has enormous power. Paul modeled this in 1 Corinthians 9:26.
Think of one or two goals in relation to your health that will help you move in the right direction.
