You've got your big picture.
You've got your goals.
Now you make a list of all the resources you have available in each area. That list should be more than things.
In each area of your life, you have people. The right relationship is your most powerful asset. No matter where your goals are, from spiritual to financial, you're going to need someone who's been where you are and who can do what you want done.
These people will be the ones who will help you push through your obstacles.
Not long ago, my daughter asked about why things in life get difficult. It's a question most people ask, or at least some variant thereof: if God is real, then why is this happening to me?
My answer was this, quite simply, that things aren't happening to you, they happen for you.
Somewhere down the road, someone you know will be going through something very similar. This becomes your opportunity to help them get through it.
Things happen to teach us lessons and, if we look for them, blessings as well. It's our responsibility to pass that wisdom along.
If you've set SMART goals, you can achieve them. If you find someone who's already achieved them, you can learn more and achieve faster.
The choice is yours.
