Step Three: Take Baby Steps
You can only climb a mountain by putting one foot in front of the other, and new habits take time to stick. Smart goals
are a great tool to help you. You can also check out this guide
for advice on how to build lasting habits. Remember that when you are just getting started, it’s a good idea to start with low commitment goals. For example, instead of trying to read the entire Divine Principle
, make a commitment to read just one page each day. As your spiritual muscles grow stronger, you can turn your baby steps into larger ones.
Step Four: Find Accountability
It is much easier to accomplish our dreams if we have accountability. Tell a friend or family member who understands your wavelength about your desire for improved spiritual health this year. Maybe this person has similar goals and you can each support one another. Just like we sometimes need workout buddies to help us exercise, a spiritual workout buddy will help our mind and heart to grow stronger.
