I believe it’s safe to say, that you are someone who wants to achieve success.
Your definition of success is personal, but it will likely include goals for professional, financial and personal success. In order to do so, creating SMART goals are essential (we’ve touched on this before). Consider theme words as an add-on bonus to your goals. They help move you forward more quickly.
So what do I mean by that?
Think about setting an intention in the form of a theme word for the year. As you know, intentions can have far reaching effects. Think about it…you had an intention to win a tournament, play high school/college basketball, become a health care professional. There have been times in your life when you may have reached a goal and thought, well that was easy, as you had not consciously worked toward it.
This is the idea of setting an intention. It’s thought when we set an intention, all sorts of unseen and unconscious energy is put forth to meet that intention. This is no different when we write out our goals – our goals are more likely to come to fruition.
Many self-development gurus advocate for goals and intentions. And many feel that it’s a powerful statement to declare a theme word for the year. Thus I invite you to set an intention for 2012 and see what comes forth in the coming year.
My word for 2012? It was a touch call. My initial thought was Focus. However, in the end, I decided on Balance. In my mind, in order to achieve the balance I’m after in all aspects of my life and my business, I’ll also need to master focus. I can’t wait to see how this plays out for 2012. What’s your word?
