Every January I sit down and reflect on my goals and how I can either inspire or motivate myself and my clients for the year ahead I stumbled across this great philosophy for 2020 which I am going to share with you from “goalshare.com” Its’ simple and if you need a change, or wanting to improve on something for 2020 then forget about new year’s resolutions – try a focus word instead.
A single word that encapsulates what you need more of, what you want to focus on, or what you need to improve on.
The benefits of having a ‘word of the year’
It might be a theme or overarching focus for your year ahead – either way, it’s an exciting way to set your intention for the year ahead.
How to decide on your word for the year
Sometimes we know exactly what we need in our lives, and sometimes we need to stew on it a bit.
Here are some simple questions to get you thinking, and below is a list of over 300 word of the year ideas:
Considering how this past year has been, what is something that you could improve on, do differently or keep working on?Have a think of something that isn’t going so well in your life right now. What’s a word that is the opposite or more positive alternative to this? For example, if fear keeps holding you back, then the alternative could be fearless or brave?What do you want MORE of in your life?What do you want LESS of? Be sure to turn it into a positive word though!What would be a game-changer for you?
A year is a long time, but also goes by very quickly. So, I’ve decided that I will focus on all 5 as they are obviously much needed in my current stage of life.
There are no rules. If you choose a word and then part way through the year, you want to change it, add another or modify it – then do it!
It’s your own personal ‘game’! You might even find that you want to choose a new word each month to focus on? Get the entire family involved and write your words down and stick on the fridge.
Yours in health,
