I’ve spent the last few weeks looking for clues as to what made 2017 such an incredible year. Yes, continuing to live out my purpose was important. Yes, meeting new and exciting, wonderful people was amazing. Yes, focusing on my own health and wellness had an impact. But there was something else I had never tried in previous years that made this year stand out. That was to design my year around a single word.
A dear buddy of mine gave me a gift last Christmas; a book titled, One Word That Will Change Your Life, by Dan Britton, Jimmy Page, and Jon Gordon. I took the challenge and my one word for 2017 was “Pilgrimage.” I must say, my focus increased, and I experienced that word in every aspect. I was a sojourner on a quest to live out my sacred mission and the one word worked.
I want to leave you with this same challenge (or gift). Choose your one word for 2018 today. You must be intentional and let your one word bring forth what you are hoping to accomplish for your new year. Spread the word and challenge others to choose and live out their one word.
