A system is a must when striving towards reaching your goals. You’ve probably heard many people talk about goal setting, but you may not know that having goals without systems is like shooting in the dark.

Give everything you have by faith; what does that mean to you? Last week I did a live stream about the poor widow who gave her everything by faith. To give everything you have by faith is much different than believing in yourself, so before you get into your goal-setting process, please make sure you read this post and catch the live stream Give Everything You Have by Faith on YouTube, as it goes into more detail.
Distraction is the enemy of productivity. Since distraction is the enemy of productivity, targeted prayer, discipline, focus, and persistence in your goals help you win. You cannot stay in your lane when you’re easily distracted. But God provides an avenue to escape the distractions tempting you into a lack of productivity.
