I want to talk about something today that can set the tone for your ENTIRE YEAR.
It can help you make great decisions … set your priorities and stick to them … and even help you achieve your goals!
PLUS … it can even help you feel GREAT in the process. AND NO, it’s not an energy drink or a miracle cure!
It’s your FOCUS WORD for 2021.
Your word will set the tone for the entire year. It’s basically your 2021 mantra. It’s your intention.
Examples of focus words could be something like “STRONG,” or “RENEW,” or “TRANSFORM,” or “INSPIRE.”
Whatever word you choose, it should align with your goals and also, maybe MOST importantly, make you feel GOOD when you say it.
Words with a strong emotional response will keep you feeling excited and fired up!
First, having JUST ONE WORD to keep in mind is simple – and reminding yourself of the word every day will help you stay on track.
The whole idea is to do MORE things that connect you with that word, and FEWER things that push you away from it.
For example, if your word is “vibrant” and you go out to eat, keeping your word in mind can help you order foods that make you feel more vibrant – and not tired or bloated later!
Second, when you’re faced with making a life decision, the word can help you with that, too.
Here’s another example. Let’s say your word for the year is “PEACE.” And let’s say you’re trying to decide about taking a new job.
Beyond the normal new-job jitters, does the idea of the new position bring you peace of mind? Will it bring more peace to the rest of your life?
Or will it increase demands on your time and energy that will move you farther away from feeling peaceful?
It can be tempting to pick a few words for your year, but narrowing it down to just one will help you FOCUS.
Going after several different things at the same time will diffuse your energy and attention. Focusing on ONE intention can literally transform and accelerate your results!
That’s why choosing the RIGHT WORD matters. Make a list and really THINK about your word. Make sure you connect with it in a deep and meaningful way, and it sums up what you want MORE of in your life.
