I’m sure you’ve heard of the phenomenon of choosing a word to focus on throughout the year. I’m not sure who originally came up with the idea, but I feel like choosing a word can help me narrow my focus, adjust my attitude, and try to see circumstances in a different light.
My word (well, words) for 2016 are Consistently Elevate. I’m going to be focusing on bettering myself so that I can help others more. I will be working to elevate myself so that I can help elevate others. There is so much that we can approach with a negative attitude, but if we simply choose to take a more positive stance, we can elevate ourselves about what could possibly be an unpleasant situation.
Some of my 2016 goals are big (scary big!) but I’m excited about them. A few goals that I’m ready to share are:
- Reading 25 books.
- Growing this blog (I have a certain number of page views in mind that I intend to hit before the end of the year)
- Running a marathon in under 5 hours.
- Growing my coaching and freelancing businesses.
When I took a step back and consider the smaller, more specific steps I need to take to reach some of my bigger goals, I decided to set out a few small, monthly goals. Having these more attainable, smaller steps will help me feel a sense of accomplishment and meeting these goals will help bring me closer to accomplishing my bigger goals. So for January, I will:
- Complete a round of 21 Day Fix
- Post on the blog each weekday
- Sign up two people in each of my side hustles.
What about you? Do you have a word for the year that you’ve picked out? Do you do one word per year or perhaps one per month instead? What are some of your goals for the new year? We’d love to have you link up with us each month so we can help encourage each other on in reaching our goals!
Please join us each month in checking in on our yearly goals. We’d love for you to grab the button, and share the love with others who linkup. We can all encourage each other throughout the year!
