New Year, New Focus Word

New Year , New Focus Word

 Each year millions of people set out to the start the new year fresh by making resolutions to improve themselves. I, however, am not one of them. I can’t really remember the last time I had a resolution. It’s been that long.

I decided that I would replace any resolutions I may have and use focus word(s). So you are probably wondering what is a focus word. A focus word is a word that will help you  reach your goals. My focus word for 2015 was preparation. . You can’t run a marathon without preparing for it.  It wasn’t always fun, but it was necessary. Did my focus word help me reach my goals? It sure did.

New Year, New You

I spent the last day of 2015 working an event and partying all night long.  I wanted to celebrate all of my accomplishments. I would not have accomplished so many things if I did not prepare myself. It is so important to take notes of all of the things you achieved and celebrate each one. It is a great tool to keep you motivated.  I like to keep notes of achievements, compliments, and victories on my notepad.

It is so easy to lose track of all the great things that happened in your life if you aren’t taking notes. There is no need for me to grab a pen and paper. I use the notepad on my phone to record things so I won’t forget.

Will you be like millions of people and make a resolution? Or will you do something different this year?

    I gave up doing the normal resolutions and opted for creating a vision board each year. For me resolutions never work, but to see everything I want to accomplish laid out in front of me, gives me massive motivation.

  2. Jamila:

    I’ve never thought about using a focus word, I like the idea. I’m going to come up with one for myself. Thanks for sharing this idea.

  3. Allison Jones:

    Instead of making resolutions that I knew I wouldn’t stick to, I started 2016 with a “new year, same me” mentality with the intent to build on everything I accomplished in 2015. I also came up with a word for 2016. My focus word is balance because I want to find balance in every aspect of my life.


  4. Jovanhanna:

    Hey ? I come across so many people that aren’t doing resolutions. I have a theme word or phrase that really helps me each year. This year my word is focus!

  5. Donna Shana:

    I am going to try to do something different. I am still going to work on my goals, but my approach will be new. Wish me luck!

  6. Mimi "MimiCuteLips" Green:

    I’ve never did resolutions but I certainly have goals. This is my first year doing a focus word, for this year mine is action.

  7. Jonna:

    I’ll be goal setting this year. I think my focus word is PLAN. Because I really need to have a plan for everything if I want to get it all done.

    Screw resolutions they are made to be broken. Just do…do what you say you gonna do. I say I am gonna travel more and make more money….thats what I will do!

    I did not do a resolution either. I also did a word. Mine is Surrender because I really need to let go of somethings.

  10. Sharon Tonge:

    My 2016 is the Year of my hopes being fulfilled. I made a list of things I hope to happen this year and check them off if they are accomplished. I pray over this list everyday, knowing I can’t accomplish them alone. I hope this strategy can help others as well, which why I share it!
