A New Fiscal Year
I thought it would be interesting to look at this reevaluation as if my life were a business. With the beginning of a new fiscal, for a company, it provides the opportunity to look at past year’s finances, calendar, and a host of other factors. Companies then make plans for the “new year.” This could include, but not limited to, implementing new polices/procedures, budgets, and calendars.
I looked at my “company” (aka my life) to see what new policies, procedures, calendar, and budgets need to be put in place. One would think this would be an easy task, but not in the slightest. I found myself asking questions like:
What are my deficiencies (spiritually, financially, emotionally, and physically)?
What were things that work that need to carry over to the new year?
What partnerships need to be enhanced or created?
What partnerships need to end?
What are the goals?
What areas need more research?
One of the most interesting facts I discovered was why there were certain areas that were lacking verses others. I came to the conclusions that I allow an employee called Fear have too much control over too many departments. Instead of hiring qualified employees, Fear has employed his friends (Abandonment, Doubt, Pride, Ego, Discontentment, Lack of Faith, Others Opinions, Failure, Comfortability, Procrastination, and Laziness).
So…I decided let each know, the “company” is going in a different direction and their services will no longer be needed. Since the “company” is restructuring, other employees needed to be promoted, such as Faith, Trust, Joy, Contentment, Time Management, Confidence, and Success. With all this being said, this brings me to my questions for you:
What is preventing you from getting to your Purpose? Are you self-sabotaging? How have you allowed fear to play a role?
