How To Set New Year's Resolutions That Slay So You Step Into Your God-Given Purpose

Hey Godlywood Girl!

It’s Steph Rodnez here for another blast of purpose notes, and this week I want to talk about “New Year Resolutions.” 


Because many of us fall into the trap of setting new year’s resolutions based off what our friends and family members want.  This is the WORST way to set resolutions because you’re going after goals that don’t give you the life you want.

Lovely, please hear me when I say this. If you set new year’s resolutions that aren’t aligned with your God-given purpose, then you still won’t be living the life you want - even if you achieve those goals.

The secret is to set New Year’s Resolutions that align with your God-given purpose, and my latest YouTube video shows you how:

In the video, you’ll learn:

  • What are New Year’s Resolutions
  • Why they’re important
  • How to set New Year Resolutions that align with your purpose
  • And so much more!


In addition to the video, I also wanted to answer some of the commonly asked questions I get about New Year’s Resolutions. Reply back to this email and let me know any other questions you’d like answered.

1 - What are New Year’s Resolutions?

According to my trusty friend Wikipedia, a new year’s resolution is a tradition in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life.

For example, if I want to grow in my purpose in 2018, my new year’s resolution could be to attend a purpose-driven conference at least one time each month.

2 - Why do New Year’s Resolutions matter?

In Proverbs 29:18, the Lord says Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”

Without a clear vision of the purpose God created you to achieve and the results you want in your life, “the people perish.”  You must have a clear picture of where you want to go with your life in 2018, otherwise nothing will ever change.

I know statistics say that most people fail at their New Year’s resolutions, but you are created to do great things according to God’s purpose for your life, and I believe 2018 is going to be your best year yet. 

3 - How do I incorporate New Year’s Resolutions on my journey of purpose?

Start by using your New Year’s Resolutions to move forward on your journey of purpose.  Don’t copy what Susie-Q and Johnny Smith want.  Go after what GOD wants for your life, the way He created you to live it.

2018 is a fresh start for all of us, and you are created to do great things in this world.  If you’re ready to start living your God-given purpose full-time, be sure to grab your copy of The War Of Purpose Elite Edition here:
