Why SHOULD everyone choose a word of the year? Why shouldn’t everyone do it! Everyone needs inspiration from time to time. A word of the year can do just that!
Why Choose a Word
Think about it! We all, or most of us anyway, make New Year’s resolutions! This is just a different form of that. A resolution is easy to make, and just as easy to break. I make the same one over and over….usually to lose weight, or save money, or both. There’s probably more, but they are the two main ones that I continue to make!
Think a little more! How long does a resolution last? A day or two? Maybe a few weeks or a month? Or if you’re one of the few, you actually succeed! For me, life happens! I’m at a birthday party, and someone says “one piece of cake won’t hurt”! Well, for me, they’d be wrong, because that ONE piece of cake turns in to a second one, and then I’ve blown it, so I might as well eat this, too!
But I’ll get right back on it tomorrow! Not! Tomorrow turns in to Monday, then next week, and it just never seems to happen! But yet, I keep making them over and over, hoping this time it works! Maybe it will!
Why Choose a Word of the Year
So, again, why choose a word?
I am part of a premium coaching group on Facebook called the Elite Suite. I’ve been doing it for a little over 2 years now, trying to learn what it takes to succeed in my direct sales. We choose a “word of the year” to make our own. It is a word or phrase to focus on, throughout the year.
Last year, I chose “try”, and I can honestly say I DID try, until I didn’t anymore. Because I get discouraged very easily! Not just with weight loss, it was with everything! But, if I’m being honest, I didn’t start trying again. Once I quit, I was done.
My Word for 2019
My word for 2019 is “Believe”. Believe I can, believe I will. It is way past time for me to believe in myself, in my self worth, in my abilities. I want to quit being so hard on myself about everything. Stop all this negativity that just brings me in to a depression that is so hard to shake!
Believe in the magic! I can and I will! Watch me! Follow me on Instagram and Pinterest, where I am sharing my word, so all of my followers can hold me accountable! I will also try to inspire you as well! Come give my business page on Facebook a “like”, too.
I also want to believe that I can (and deserve to) be successful in my direct sales businesses and in life! Believe!
My Etsy shop needs to flourish, too! If only I can believe in the possibilities!
Choose YOUR word
Give this some really deep thought! Don’t just pick one for the sake of picking. Find a word that has special meaning to YOU! If it touches you in any way, that is probably your word. When I was explaining to the group why I chose this particular word, I teared up, so I KNEW this one was mine! You see, I usually don’t share my negativity, or any of my feelings, with others. But now it’s out there for the universe to see!
Most of the time, the word finds you, instead of the other way around! I know I ran a lot through my head and most of them didn’t feel right! My best friend told me I needed to believe in myself, and then it hit me! Yep, just like that! And that is what I will be doing.
Want to join me?
Just remember, you don’t have to share your word with anyone, unless you want to! It’s your word to use however you want! Anytime you struggle, reach for your word and ask yourself if you are doing what your word was chosen for!
And if you’d like to learn more about “the Elite Suite“, come check it out. Yes, it is a premium coaching group, so there is a fee. But they also have a low “give it a try” before committing fee! You’ll be glad you invested this time in yourself!
Hope to see you again soon!
