Goal Setting for the Christian: Harnessing the Stunning Benefits of Focus and Persistence to Realize Your Potential for Christ--and Your God-Given Dreams by M. Blaine Smith

REACH YOUR GOALS -- AT YOUR OWN PACE!!! An effectively-set goal hugely increases your potential for succeeding at anything you do, and allows you to proceed at a pace that’s focused, but relaxed. In the first chapter of this book, Blaine Smith--who writes with a heart for the special issues and concerns we face as Christians--outlines ten steps for establishing a life-changing goal. In chapter two he looks at the stunning power of simple persistence, and how relaxed perseverance enables you to achieve dreams you thought impossible. In chapter three, he encourages you to stay optimistic and hopeful about achieving your important goals, and offers a critical principle for weighing open and closed doors.

He also adds a chapter on overcoming the fear of change, for those who are hesitant to take on a goal or dream they dearly want to pursue.

This book will help you to:

• Successfully set goals that make a substantial difference in what you achieve

• Draw on natural energy and motivation to achieve them

• Determine which goals and dreams God wants you to pursue

• Weigh open and closed doors (and recognize when a "closed door" is still open)

• Move beyond fear to realize God’s best for you

"Goal Setting for the Christian" is purposely a short book (60 print pages), designed to be an easy read, but to give you solid counsel that will get you up-and-running with your important goals. God has fashioned you uniquely, and given you unspeakable gifts and opportunities. Follow the counsel of this book, and achieve that "impossible" dream!

(Chapter one of this book is excerpted from Blaine Smith's "Reach Beyond Your Grasp: Embracing Dreams That Reflect God’s Best for You--And Achieving Them." The extra chapter and part of chapter three are adapted from Blaine's "Faith and Optimism: Positive Expectation in the Christian Life" (formerly "The Optimism Factor").
