We are two weeks into 2021 already! Now that 2021 is in full swing and the holidays are behind us…
That means it’s time to take ACTION…and I’ve got an experiment for you to fire up that excitement for the year!
It’s to pick your “WORD OF THE YEAR!”
Your word will set the tone for the entire year. It’s basically like your 2021 mantra. It’s your intention. Your word will help you to:
● Stay focused
● Set priorities
● Make decisions
● Reach your goals
Here’s how it works.
It’s simple. All you do is choose a word that resonates with you and what you aim to achieve this year, and keep it front-and-center in your mind as the year progresses.
But it’s also challenging because it has to be the RIGHT word, one that you connect with emotionally AND that aligns with your life and goals.
How to set your word:
Some questions to ask yourself as you choose your word…
→ If you could skip ahead to a year from now, what would you like to be proud of? Then, what is ONE characteristic you’ll need to embody to get there?
→ Who inspires you? What word would you use to describe them?
→ What is the underlying theme of the goals you have for this year?
→ How does the word make you FEEL?
It can help to make a list of words and think about them for a day or two before choosing.
Here are some ideas to get your mind going…
After you choose your word…
Find ways to keep it in mind. Make it your phone screensaver, put a Post-It note on your refrigerator door and/or in your car, create a graphic featuring the word and frame it, and place it on your desk or on your bathroom wall.
What word are YOU choosing for this year?
I’d love to know!
Mine is Endure/Endurance!
