New Year's Eve challenge based on the book, "One Word That Will Change Your Life" by Jon Gordon, Dan Britton, and Jimmy Page.
As each new year rolls around, I encourage people to set intentions rather than resolutions. Resolutions are fallible and they set us up for failure and disappointment. Intentions are requests from the heart that we can keep working on and, since they come from the voice of our heart, cannot let us down.
In the book "One Word...", the authors suggest carefully choosing one word that will be your focus for the entire new year. The word should represent something you strive to work on or simply be more conscious of.
The following is a link where you can hear the authors discuss how this idea came about, what some of their words have been and meant, and how to choose your word. I strongly encourage you to listen to this interesting conversation.
The only "rule" is that you do not get to change your word mid-year; the word stays with you until next New Year's Eve. It is not a race to compete or win against your word; it is an exploration of the journey this word leads you on.
The authors strongly suggest putting your word where you can see it every day so you are reminded of its (and your) intentions when you chose it, though its significance to you may certainly change as the year moves on.
So, here's the challenge! Choose your word wisely and post it on my FB page...Inspired by Earth Yoga and Reiki with Sandra. If you can't find the page for some reason, friend me on FB and I will send you an invite to the yoga page. If I may not know you and you stumbled across this challenge, add the word challenge to your FB friend request. If you do not use FB, you can post directly to my website as a comment to this theme.
