How do you come up with just one WORD? Let’s consider the different areas where you might set goals: personal, relationships, finances, and health.
Use this chart and come up with some goals for each category:
Do you want to let go of the past? Be more trusting? Start a new business venture? Follow a strict workout routine?
Download this graphic, fill it out for yourself, or encourage your loved ones to find their WORD too:
What WORD will you use as your reminder to work toward those goals? Ask yourself the following questions:
-How do you want to tackle these goals? (i.e. courageously, fearlessly, with love, with faith)
-What do you need to work through each goal? (i.e. strength, resilience, passion, perseverance, love, peace, faith)
-What will accomplishing these goals give you? (i.e. hope, peace, confidence, change)
-What would serve as a daily reminder of what you’re working toward? (you’ve got this, I am enough, dreamer, warrior, let go, breathe, be the change, I am loved, I am strong)
What's Your WORD?
Did any of your answers stand out to you? Your answer is your WORD. It will serve as a lens that focuses on what’s most important to you.
Your WORD is all yours to choose - and it is most powerful when it speaks directly to you and reminds you to work toward your goals.
If you start to notice that your goals are changing - that’s ok! The WORD you choose now does not have to be your “forever” WORD - it’s yours as long as you feel a connection with it. Once you’ve finished your journey with one WORD, you can pause to reflect on new goals and choose another WORD that resonates with you in that moment!
