Pick Your One Word for 2021 –
Nine out of Ten people will fail with their resolutions.
50% of resolution makers will fail by the end of January.
But one word sticks!
About 6 years ago started picking one word for the upcoming year. No resolutions, no goals… just one word that gives meaning, mission, passion and purpose. One word that will help me be my best.
My words over the years have been: PURPOSE, AUTHENTIC, FOCUS, CONNECTION, CREATOR, BELONGING.
Each word has molded and shaped me to become a better person, coach, friend and communicator. Looking back I know my One Word chose me more often than I chose it.
You may not have any idea what your word is going to be this New Year. That’s okay. I still don’t have my word for 2021 yet – I’ve narrowed it down to two possibilities. Give it some time. Instead of randomly picking a word, allow the word to choose you. Your word will come!
I’ve had people email me saying, “I waited and waited and waited and one day, bam, the word hit me. I knew it was my word for the year.” If you are open the word always comes. There is a word that is meant for you to help you become all that you are meant to be and if you believe it you will receive it.
To help you get started ask yourself a few questions. What do you want to focus on this year? Or what’s in the way? What do you need more or less of? What needs to change?
Once you come up with your word feel free to write it on a poster. Or write it on a rock and put it on your desk. Or make it your screensaver or phone’s wallpaper. Some have even made one-word jewelry to wear during the year – this is what I’ve done. In fact, if you share your word I’ll send you an item with your word. The ideas are endless. The key is to keep your word front and center so you can see it and live it.
