It is that time again… Time to figure out my person intention and focus for the year.
Let me tell you a little what the one word theme is… it is the value or intention that you want to make front and center in your life. It is the value/intention you will use to make every decision in the next year.
The first year (2009) that I decided to create a theme, I used “Holistic“, I used this year to “clean up” many areas of my life. I moved to create a new lifestyle, I focused on my both my mental and physical health.
The second year (2010), I used “Level-up” as my theme, I used this to again make significant changes in my life, re-aligning my business to fit my vision for my future, changing names and clarifying the focus. I trained for and competed in my first triathlon.
The third year (2011) I used “Leadership” I wanted to spend more time, impacting more people. I wanted to create a legacy. I did this, not exactly the way that I had thought when I decided to take on this theme. Oh but I most certainly did it.
Last year (2012) I used two words “Wealth & Health” My intention was to spend the year fixing my problems. Oh My Gosh, were those the incorrect words to use. Health: That is literally what I did all year round. I spend more time in hospital and recovering from procedures then I ever have in my entire life. Everything is fixed which is awesome, but it kept interfering with my momentum. I would just get started something and another this or that. Wealth: Again I was literally moving from fire to fire, I was always able to resolve the situation, but a little less stress would have been nice.
SO this year I am being very very specific with my word and I am making sure that my intention is very very clear.
This year I am selecting “Success” and my intention is to easily complete all the goals I set for the year, in all areas of my life. This year I am feeling more inclined to set very specific goals around creating success rather than having my word be an intangible yet powerful value. This year it is a strong action oriented word, that has power just with saying it. I feel empowered, inspired and activated by my theme.
Here is how you can find your word for the year:
Review or re-evaluate your core values to ensure you are coming from a place of purpose and alignment.
Step 1. Brainstorm words, ideas, thoughts. Free write anything that comes to mind.
Step 2. Ask yourself if any of these words speak to you, if you can feel them.
Step 3. Review all the words you have written, review the meanings of each of the words.
Step 4. Meditate and pray, allow the words speak to you.
Let you word bring you into a higher vibration, let your word empower you, let your word motivate you toward your ideal year.
I would love to hear what your words/ themes are, Leave a comment below
