Well, we did it – we conquered the ups, downs, and in-betweens of 2017. With the close of one year, comes the beginning of another and guess what? 2018 is going to be great!
I personally don’t participate in New Year’s resolutions, but I do use each new year as motivation to set some well-defined short term goals. Each January, I come up with a list of concrete goals that I will set out to accomplish by April. However, in addition to setting short term goals, I’m adding something new this year…one focus word for 2018.
I had a reader comment on one of my recent blog posts about her annual focus word. At the beginning of each year she picks a word that she will focus on – using that one word to drive her actions and intentions for the next 365 days. I love this idea so much that I’ve decided to try it out this year.
I’ve decided that my one focus word for 2018 is…
This is the word that I will use to direct my decisions and keep me centered. And a word that I will think of when I’m put in a position to make decisions big and small.
We all have areas of our lives where we want to experience more freedom; whether it’s financial freedom, freedom in our careers, freedom from insecurities, freedom from fear, freedom from worrying, freedom from failure, freedom to dream big, freedom to succeed, or freedom to just be our most authentic selves. Most of my defined goals this year can all be summed up by this one word, so I’m making it my primary focus for the next 12 months.
What word will you choose to focus on this year? Send me a message or contact me on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) to let me know!
