If you are to be successful, you will need to set goals – for your recovery, spiritual disciplines, exercise, reading, etc. The Bible says it like this: “An intelligent person aims at wise action, but a fool starts off in many directions” (Proverbs 17:24).
What is a goal set in F.A.I.T.H.? It is:
Focused: It’s specific, something you can measure.
Attainable: It’s possible and practical.
Individual: It’s personal; you must own your own goals.
Trackable: Your goal needs a deadline; without a date on it, it’s not a goal.
Heartfelt: Never set a goal about which you are not passionate.
Recovery Step: Set a new goal today. Do it by F.A.I.T.H.
