Happy New Year!!!
Can you believe it is 2020?! Not only do we have a brand New Year ahead of us … we have a NEW DECADE!
We’ve said goodbye to 2019, and we’re launching into 2020 with fresh energy. This is YOUR YEAR.
That’s why I have something REALLY fun today, to help you celebrate!
Are you ready to get FOCUSED?
Here’s an amazing exercise that can set the tone for your entire YEAR … it’s truly inspiring!
Take a few minutes (or maybe even a whole day) to think about how you really want to live this year …
What word(s) describe how you want to feel in 2020? What do you want to work on … or what inspires you? What changes do you want to make?
Some possible words might come to mind as you consider all this:
Strong – Joyful – Connected – Resilient – Brave – Renewed – Grateful – Faithful – Peaceful – Loving – Inspiring – Confident – Present… there seriously are so many great choices!
Your job is to pick JUST ONE WORD that resonates with you, and make it your mantra for the year!
It doesn’t have to be a word from the list above – this word should be unique to YOU.
It should ignite an emotion within you – inspiration, relief, clarity – because of the meaning it carries for you.
Let this word fuel your thoughts and actions every single day.
Use it to clarify the decisions you’ll make, the actions you’ll take … and even how you view the people around you!
It’s incredible how ONE WORD can give a specific intention to everything you do. This will help you be more present and “in the moment.”
- Look at your word first thing when you wake up in the morning, and when you go to sleep at night.
- Post it on your desk.
- Make it your screensaver (on your phone & computer!)
- Repeat it a couple times a day.
- This habit can fall by the wayside after a few days, so keep those reminders posted!
Here’s my one word for 2020 – Connected, to my family, faith, friends, purpose and passions. I chose this word because we have a lot of choices in this world and it’s easy to get distracted and misguided. I don’t want to be busy and doing for the sake of doing, I want to be connected to it, to feel it, with my heart and soul. Then I know it’s what I’m meant to be doing. Everything else can get weeded out.
One reason this is such an effective practice is that it’s SIMPLE.
JUST ONE WORD.
Once you choose your word, I’d love for you to share that with me! Comment below, and let me know what your word is!
Let’s make 2020 a year to remember.
