The F word !

This year I am going all in 100% on my goals and intentions. And part of my goal-setting process for a new year always includes selecting my word for the year...

But how do you choose it and how do you ensure it aligns with all that you want to bring into your life?

My word of the year for 2023 in relation to me in business is the F word - not the word you' were probably thinking of was it !! .But my word for 2023 is FEARLESS ...

It's the aligned word that makes me feel unstoppable in achieving my goals, it's the word that grounds me and reminds me of all I am working towards this year ...

It's the word I will lean into when I'm not feeling so brave or when I'm being pushed out of my comfort zone professionally (and personally). It's the word that helps me stay focused on all of my goals and it's the word that motivates me to achieve them too! The word Fearless instantly connects me to my vision...

And vision is what we need, we need to imagine we have the things we desire already.- we need a vision of where we want to go, who we want to be, how we want be seen, the success and happiness we want to create. We need to see and feel the emotion around it... that's why visualisation is so key to goal setting!

How to choose your word of the year (or the month):

Take time out to focus on your own goals and intentions - what's important to you, journal it, and make notes - see what stands out. Focus on what you want to make happen and why you want to achieve it and what you need to change or do to achieve it! You might even find your word comes to you easily when you are developing your vision board - I absolutely love a vision board. . You should of course include the word on your vision board and why not design a screen saver for your phone that will focus you and remind you of your word everyday...
