How to Shop Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals to Set Yourself Up for Success in the New Year

Do you love Black Friday deals to jump start your gift giving? Me, too! But a few years ago I discovered how Black Friday shopping can actually set me up for success in the new year and realized I not been using these crazy deals to their full potential!

In fact, once I shifted my mentality about Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, these deals became a catalyst of change and improvement in my life.  And I can’t wait to share these tips with you!

How to Shop Black Friday Deals to Set Yourself Up for Success in the New Year

Before you start loading Black Friday sales into your cart and before the festivities begin, take a few minutes to dream and reflect on the year.

Think and pray through the highs and lows of where this year has taken you. Thank God for His many blessings, and His constant faithfulness.

Then, hit your knees and ask God to show you His vision for the upcoming year. Ask Him for strength to create new habits and for the diligence to seek Him in all seasons of life.

Use these simple questions to reflect on the year and start planning for the new one:

  • What were your biggest wins?
  • How can you make tweaks and minor changes to your life and habits to experience growth in the new year?
  • What are three top goals for the next year?
  • Are there tools and resources you need to help you reach your goals and achieve your dreams?
  • How would investing in your goals impact your life and the life of your family?

Then, scout out Black Friday sales that will help you achieve your goals quicker and jump start you life for the new year. 

Sometimes the rock bottom prices of courses and resources to jump start your goal setting are at the lowest of the year. So it makes sense to stock up now, even if you won’t use your purchase until after the holidays.

PIN THIS RESOURCE:

Which area of your life do you need guidance and direction?

Think through the following areas of your life and imagine how a little guidance could lead you to a more fruitful and abundant year.  Then, browse the Black Friday deals for the resources you need to help you thrive and make progress on your goals in the year ahead.

Get healthy

Does getting healthy top your list of goals for the new year?  Last year at this time I was just where you are now. I was headed into the holiday season tired, overweight, and longing for change.  

Yet I knew that in order to actually make this a reality, I couldn’t do it alone!  I desperately needed someone to hold me accountable and show me the way.

My friend Sara at Faithful Finish Lines, who has lost and kept off over 100 lbs, was just the person for the job!

I used aspects of the Faithful Finish Lines program this past year to help me jump start healthy habits, break my sugar addiction, and lose 15 lbs!

Discover how Faithful Finish Lines 2.0 can help you find freedom from food addiction at the foot of the cross.

This grace-based weight loss program is the jump start you need to finally get healthy once and for all!
