The above examples are just a small sampling of possible words. Your Wordis a personal choice, two people can have the same word, but it could mean completely different things to each of them. There is no right or wrong, importantly, your Word needs to be in alignment with your values and be a guiding light toward your goals.

How to Choose Your Word

This is a very personal process and there are things to consider and many ways to come up with your Word. Close your eyes and imagine your “perfect life”. How does it look and feel? Think about last year, what held you back? What is something that you would like to overcome? Look at different areas of your life, and the goals you have set for them, is there a common thread? Start writing out words that come to mind, just spend two minutes focused on possible words, then go over the list and start narrowing it down, say each word out loud, trust your gut with this. What words strike a chord with you.

Once you get down to 5-10 words, look at them through all aspects of your life, each of the goal areas, eliminate the words that don’t work with all areas.

How to Use Your Word

Post it everywhere: mirrors, screensaver, fridge, bedside tables, office, in your wallet, etc. Consider it your mission for the year to live by your Word. Before making a decision, consult your Word. Is the decision in alignment with it? Check-in with yourself at the end of the week, are you living your Word? Did you make good decisions based on your Word?
