One Word for 2022

One word for the New Year could Change Everything

A new year always opens conversations about who we've been, who we'd like to become, and how we'd like things to change in our lives...

We feel the normal year-end drive to make the next year better.  

We ALSO can't help but think of who we were ten years ago. How much things have changed since then. Where we thought we'd be by this time, and how different we are from what our 2012 selves desired. We want to know how to make the next 10 years of our lives, the best 10 years of our lives.

It puts a whole new perspective on New Year’s Resolutions. Can we resolve to know everything we want to do in the next decade? What about starting with the next year? It might look to be a challenge but I learned a way to make it more simple and effective.

Which is why I’m sharing what I learned with you today—

I no longer do resolutions.

I choose one word.

One word that I want to focus on every year, one word that embodies all my intentions and goals for the year, one word that steers me and keeps me focused, aligned with my purpose.

My One Word for 2022 is …..COURAGE: Courage to take more risks, to say no to distractions, to be accountable, courage to be intentional in focusing on what is important in my  family, friends, health and business.  God commands us to be courageous. One of my favorite Bible verses is Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Do you have a word for 2022?  The trend to pick a word for the year will continue to grow.

Pick a word that has meaning and purpose for you.  A word that shows your personality. Share it with someone. Print it and put it on your computer, mirror or vision board.  Maybe it is a word from your childhood that has kept you going when you wanted to quit.
