New Year , New Focus Word

 Each year millions of people set out to the start the new year fresh by making resolutions to improve themselves. I, however, am not one of them. I can’t really remember the last time I had a resolution. It’s been that long.

I decided that I would replace any resolutions I may have and use focus word(s). So you are probably wondering what is a focus word. A focus word is a word that will help you  reach your goals. My focus word for 2015 was preparation. . You can’t run a marathon without preparing for it.  It wasn’t always fun, but it was necessary. Did my focus word help me reach my goals? It sure did.

New Year, New You

I spent the last day of 2015 working an event and partying all night long.  I wanted to celebrate all of my accomplishments. I would not have accomplished so many things if I did not prepare myself. It is so important to take notes of all of the things you achieved and celebrate each one. It is a great tool to keep you motivated.  I like to keep notes of achievements, compliments, and victories on my notepad.

It is so easy to lose track of all the great things that happened in your life if you aren’t taking notes. There is no need for me to grab a pen and paper. I use the notepad on my phone to record things so I won’t forget.

Will you be like millions of people and make a resolution? Or will you do something different this year?
