Unrealistic Goal Expectations

When you exaggerate what your ideal of self would look like or be like instead of relying on what you have or could do at the moment, you’ll set yourself up for failure.

I know we all like to think that you we “can” do it all but that’s where we go wrong. For example, when you make a new year’s resolution, how long before you break that? Most of us, by the first two weeks of the year. That is why it’s so important to not overload or over-schedule yourself for things you know you’re not disciplined enough to handle. Yes your willpower may be strong but when you overload on goals and resolutions, you’ll eventually bend or break them and then you’ll up frustrated and give up. That’s exactly where the enemy comes in to destroy everything you’ve built.

So instead, try small goals and worry about where you are at the moment by not surrendering it all to God.


Each day, do the most pressing things on your list, whether that’s spending time with God or exercising or writing, do it first!! Because when you put it off, the time never comes back around.
