RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER’S MANUAL MAIDEN SPECIAL FOR YOUNG ADULTS AND YOUTHS (YAYA)
SUNDAY 7TH MARCH 2021 LESSON 27
TOPIC: LIFE SKILLS: GOAL SETTING
NOTE: SPECIAL 3RD QUARTER LESSONS FOR YOUNG ADULTS AND YOUTHS.
Please be informed that the idea of the special Quater 3 lessons for YAYA is to deal extensively with issues/subjects peculiar to YOUTHS and needed for their well-being as Christians.
1. All Youth Parishes should SWITCH completely to the lessons dedicated to YOUTHS throughout the 3rd quarter.
2. Parishes with special classes for YOUTHS should allow the youth classes SWITCH completely to the lessons dedicated to YOUTHS throughout the 3rd quarter while the rest of the church continues with the regular 3rd quarter for ADULTS.
3. Other Parishes without special classes for YOUTHS should re-group the members of the church and create a special class for the Youth so that the youths of the parish can SWITCH completely to the lessons dedicated to YOUTHS throughout the 3rd quarter while the rest of the church continues with the regular 3rd quarter for ADULTS.

Father, please let my life have direction.
MEMORY VERSE: “The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, But those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty”. — Proverbs 21:5 (NKJV)
BIBLE PASSAGE: GENESIS 41:33-38.
“Now therefore, let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt.
“Let Pharaoh do [this,] and let him appoint officers over the land, to collect one-fifth [of the produce] of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years.
“And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.
“Then that food shall be as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt, that the land may not perish during the famine.”
So the advice was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants.
And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find [such a one] as this, a man in whom [is] the Spirit of God?”
Many people go through the journey of life aimlessly without a roadmap to help them navigate life (1Corinthians 9:26). Some others think that goal-setting is unspiritual because they believe that “people should wait for God to lead them. It is true that God neither wants us to forge ahead in pride without consulting Him for direction (James 4:13-15) nor does He want us to sit around without acting (Genesis 11:3). Consulting with God and setting goals show that you trust Him and believe that He is able to lead you while you are moving forward (Proverbs 16:9; Psalm 20:4).
TEXT REVIEW: GENESIS 41:33-38.

1. PRINCIPLES AND AREAS OF GOAL SETTING
2. STEPS AND ADVANTAGES TO GOAL SETTING
PRINCIPLES AND AREAS OF GOAL SETTING
Teacher should break the discussion into two themes:
1. THE PRINCIPLES OF GOAL SETTING
A. Definition of terms:
i. Goal – A goal is a desirable outcome that someone carefully decides on, commits to, and plans to attain.
ii. Goal-setting – It is the process of deciding what you want to accomplish and devising a plan to achieve those desired results.
B. The ‘SMART’ acronym
A useful way of actualising goals is to adopt the SMART acronym. While there are plenty of variants, SMART usually stands for:
S – Specific (Hab. 2:2-3).
M- Measurable (Luke 14:28).
A – Attainable (Prov. 16:3).
R – Realistic (Prov. 21:5).
T – Time-bound (Eccl. 3:17b).
Hence, your goals must be specific, measurable, attainable, and realistic and
time-bound as these aid the actualisation (Luke 14:28-30).
2. AREAS OF GOAL SETTING
Teacher should allow the class discuss areas where we (youths) can set goals:
A. Career: Decide what level you want to reach in your career or what you want to achieve. (Prov. 11:23; 23:18).
B. Financial: Set a goal on how much you want to earn. (Prov. 21:5).
C. Education: Set academic goals in line with your career (Prov. 2:3)
D. Family: What kind of relationship/partner do you want? What number of children do you want? How do you want to be seen by a partner or in-laws to be? (Prov. 18:24; 2Cor.6:14).
E. Attitude: Do you have character defects or anything in your mindset holding you back? If so, set a goal to improve your behaviour or find a solution to the problem. (Matt. 7:17-20).
F. Physical: Are there any physical fitness goals that you want to achieve, or do you want good health deep into old age? What steps are you going to take to achieve this? (1Tim.4:8a)
G. Pleasure: How do you want to enjoy yourself after you have worked?
What plans do you have for vacation? You should ensure that some of your life is for you (Eccl. 5:18).
H. Public Service: Do you want to make the world a better place? If so, how? (Matt. 5:14).
CLASS ACTIVITY 1
Class should share the goals they have set in a specific area of life.

A. Teacher should guide the class through the following goal-setting steps:
1. The first step in setting personal goals is to consider what you want to achieve in your lifetime or at least, by a significant and distant age in the future (Prov. l6:9). As you do this, make sure that:
a. The goals that you have set are the ones that you genuinely want to achieve.
b. The goals are not the ones that your parents, family, or employers might want (Prov. 16:3).
c. If you have a partner, you probably want to consider what he or she wants
d. You remain true to yourself (Mk. 12:31).
2. Once you have set your lifetime goals, set a periodic plan. For example:
a. Do a five-year plan of smaller goals that you need to complete if you are to reach your lifetime plan.
b. Create a one-year plan, six-month plan, and a one-month plan of progressively smaller goals that you should reach to achieve your lifetime goals (Ps. 37:23). Each of these should be based on the previous plan.
3. Create a daily ‘to-do list’ of things that you should do today to work towards your lifetime goals (Eccl. 3:1). At an early stage, your smaller goals might be to read books and gather information on the achievement of your higher level goals. This will help you to improve the quality and the reality of your goal setting.
4. Review your plans, commit them into God’s hand and make sure that they fit into God’s purpose and will for your life (Prov. 3:5-6; 19:21).
B. A guiding example of personal goals could appear in this form:
Christianah has decided to think about what she really wants to do with her life. Her lifetime goals are as follows:
1. Career – “To be Managing Editor of the magazine that I work for.”
2. Artistic – “To keep working on my illustration skills. Ultimately, I want to have my own show in our downtown gallery.”
3. Physical -“To run a marathon.”
Now that Christianah has listed her lifetime goals, she then breaks down each one into smaller and more manageable goals.
Let us take a closer look at how she might break down her lifetime career goal:-
becoming Managing Editor of her magazine:
1. Five-year goal: “Become Deputy Editor.”
2. One-year goal: “Volunteer for projects that the current Managing Editors heading up.
3. Six-month goal: Get professionally certified.
4. One-month goal: “Talk to the current Managing Editor to determine what skills are needed to do the job.”
5. One-week goal: “Book the meeting with the Managing Editor.”
As you can see from this example, breaking big goals down into smaller and more manageable goals makes it far easier to see how the goal will get accomplished.
CLASS ACTIVITY 2
Write down your personal financial goal for a period of five years. If you are sure of yourself, briefly share it with the class.
Goal-setting is a life-skill that cuts across every facet of life. Draw a periodic plan and diligently pursue it.
In order to fulfil destiny, set meaningful and achievable goals. Avoid navigating aimlessly in the corridor of life.
Father, guide me through the path of destiny fulfilment.
Following the pattern used in this lesson, do a breakdown of your lifetime career goal.
