Goal Setting For High School Students

Kelly Said:

We need some quotes from The Holy Bible about goal setting. Where can we find them?

We Answered:

The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps" (Proverbs 16:9)-
We do not have a complete picture of God's will for our life at one setting. It's a day-to-day process, but God promises us guidance to keep us on track if we're willing to listen.

The prerequisite to receiving God's guidance is the willingness to accept it. "Commit your works to the Lord, and your plans will be established" (Proverbs 16:3).

Pressing on Toward the Goal, Philippians 3:12-14-
12Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

"Success" goals that are set to soothe our fears or feed our egos are doomed to failure. "You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures" (James 4:3). Be certain that whatever goals you're setting are compatible with God's Word.

Remembering that the Lord already has established plans and goals for you according to Jeremiah 29:11-13 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

2 Peter 1:5, 6 – For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.

Proverbs 19:20 says "Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise." and Proverbs 16:3 says "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."

If you want to use a bible teaching about achieving goals, you can teach from one scripture giving four steps from the book of Nehemiah.

Example: Nehemiah discovered the need (Nehemiah 1:2-4). He clarified the issues by asking questions, being where the people were, staying alert, informed, and concerned about the Lord’s work, and searching Scripture – and seeing the pitiful plight of the people. He turned the need into an opportunity. Then he went about achieving goals.

Nehemiah had a clear mission with specific steps tacked to a definite target date (Nehemiah 2:5, 6). He was in command of the facts, could analyze the situation and make decisions, was objective, could handle responsibility, knew how to achieve, had initiative, and was proactive.

Am I setting my goals too high?

We Answered:

It's easy to plan these things...but doing them is a very separate thing.

I've found it's best to just go with the flow, enjoy life whilst you're young and active and deal with problems when they arrive.

There's more to life than school and a good job.

Tyrone Said:

HIgh school students and coaches?

We Answered:

if you're a senior, you should be on varsity no matter how crappy you are. all they have to do is put you on the bench and let you play in garbage time.

Ian Said:

I 'm Japanese high school student. Anyone who have time, could you please correct my writing?

We Answered:

You are doing well, as English is difficult for many foreign students. Having said that, I'd like to help from the beginning of your post. I will delete incorrect words with the correct ones in ( ), parenthesis, as well as addition or deletion of any words. Some commas , are added.
I hope you can understand my corrections and/or suggestions. Some words > better.

I'm ( a ) Japanese high school student. Anyone who ( has ) time, could you please correct my writing?
I am in 12th grade. This is the ( translation of )Japanese into English question from entrance exam. I am studying ( at ) my university but I can correct English ( grammar ), *collocations* ???
( colloquialisms [is this the word?]) and
( sentences ) myself. So please check ( the ) following, and please don't
( be concerned with ) contents because I just tried to tranlate.

“Failures are the mother of success.” This is a famous saying that means reflecting ( upon )your failures ( that will ) lead you to success. Also, it can be said that experiences with lots of failures are necessary ( for ) success. It is natural that people fail when they have just started. We have to learn and think deeply
( about ) those failures.
However, in Japan, unfortunately, this is not taught at school. Japanese educational curriculum ( stresses ) how to avoid failures and how to ( succeed ) as the most important thing for students. Not only at middle or high schools, but also at many universities ( , ) which should be the highest place to study, students don’t have ( "the opportunity" ) to make failures and
( *delete "are" ) tend to be afraid of
( becoming ) failures. [optional, ( afraid of failure )]
It ( *delete "is" ) used to be said that copying
( successful ) people is the best way, but today, it doesn’t give us ( success )( , ) for sure. In other words, people can create nothing without failures. Students should acquire ( their )
( creative ) power through making failures. What is important for education is to set ( our ) own goals to challenge, not to ( follow ) given goals,
( in order ) to ( realize our ) own ( creative ) powers. If ( the ) Japanese continue to teach as they are now, ( students ) will never ( learn )
( creative ) powers which are [(asked for)]
( "required" > better ) ( by ) our global society.

Becky Said:

We need some quotes from the Holy Quran about goal setting... Where can I find them?

We Answered:

The most important goal in the Quran is to fulfil the purpose of our existence.

Allah says in the Quran"I have not created the Jinn (spirit world) nor Man except to worship me"

[The Noble Qur’an, sûrah adh-Dhariyyat, verse 56)

This means our goal in this world is to worship Allah. What does this mean, it means, that any act we do shoould be in accordance to how God wants us to do and to stay away from those acts which he has prohibited.
