Every year rather than picking a bunch of New Year’s resolutions that I will have broken by the end of the first week in January, making me feel a bit crap and than throwing the whole lot in. Instead, I choose a word that is my theme for the year.
A word that reminds me of something that I want to achieve.
Of something that is important to the whole of my life, both business and personal.
Of something that is a guiding principle for my year. That I can run past opportunities and see whether or not it fits into my overall plan.
This year I’ve decided that my word for 2017 will be gratitude.
Why? Because there is so much science to support it’s importance in our lives. Plus, I have so much to be thankful for.
Not only will it make me happier. It will make those around me happier and it will make my brain better and happier.
Now that’s a win-win-win as far as I’m concerned.
But I see it as a way of helping me expand myself and improve my life (as well as hopefully helping others to improve their own).
So I’m going to pledge 2017 to gratitude.
Everyday I’m grateful for my wonderful blog readers!
Do you have a word or a resolution you like to focus on each year?
