As hustling and bustling of year 2021 starts, there are some important things you must do to be successful, make positive impact or be fulfilled in the year. Meanwhile, there are some things you must not do. Probably, you did some of them last year which was responsible for your overall performance.

The following are the seven things you must not do in the year 2021:

1.Mistake you made in 2020: Mistake is part and parcel of life. While some mistakes can easily be corrected, some can never be corrected. Try to flashback and remember mistakes you made in 2020. Who knows maybe you would have gone far than your present condition, no thanks to those mistakes. Try your possible best not to repeat those mistakes and if you're already on the same path, it is never too late to make necessary correction or adjustment. The Bible says in Proverbs chapter 14 verse 12 that “there is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”

 

2. Unprofitable Friends: "Show me your friend and I will tell you where you will get to" is never a gainsay.  There are friends you need to do away with. Majority of them you journey with in 2020 never contributed anything to your life. The era of choosing friends without any cogent reasons should not be part of you in 2021. Choose friends who can help your vision, not friends who will kill your vision.

“The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. (Proverbs 12:26).”

 

3. Unnecessary Spending: You may be faithful with God when it comes to tithing, but after paying it, you need wisdom to spend the remaining 90percent. Spend your money wisely this year. Endeavor to safe before spending. Try to safe at least once in a month. Adjust the way you spend this year and make necessary investment.

“The wise have wealth and luxury, but fools spend whatever they get (Proverbs 21:20).”

 

4. Lack of goal or vision: Any individual without a vision is a dead living being. Little wonder the Bible says where there is no vision the people perish. You must not journey this year without your clear and well written visions or goals. Even if you have written them, let it be time bound. This is 2021, remember how you live your life in 2020 without setting any tangible target for yourself. Meanwhile, your visions or goals must not contradict God's plan for your life. In the same vein, you need to think big. Don’t belittle God with you goal or vision.

5. Not reading: Sincerely answer this simple question; how many books did you read last year? Some people journey through 2020 without reading books that can impact their lives spiritually, professionally, and maritally among others. Don't repeat same mistakes this year. There are over a million books you can freely download online. Read books that can help you to achieve your visions and fulfill God's purpose for your life.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2nd Timothy 2:15).”

 

6. No relationship with God: There are three types of people in the house of God. Those who people know, but God don't know, those God knows, but people don't know and those God knows and people know. The big question is, where do you belong? God can only know you not by WORKING for Him, but by WALKING and WORKING with Him. It is only those who walk with Him that can be carrier of His presence.

 “Observe the commands of the LORD your God by walking in his ways and by fearing him (Deuteronomy 8:6).”

 

7. Having no Role Model/ Mentor:  A Role Model is a person looked to by others as an example to be imitated, while a Mentor is a person who guides a less experienced person by building trust and modeling positive behaviors. Majority of people who are aspiring to be great or successful, don't have a Role Model or Mentor which is very wrong. Don't make the mistake made last year, look for a godly role model and someone who can mentor you. You can be mentored through someone's books or message.

I CAN SEE YOU MOVING FROM GLORY TO GLORY THIS YEAR IN JESUS' NAME.
