We are going to get down to ONE WORD that can be your focus, your mantra, the word that can guide you through the whole year. When you need a break, you go to your word. When you are stressed, repeat your word. When you need strength or a lift, this word will be there for you!
I tried this exercise at our monthly meeting with my Sales Team last year, and will be repeating it with them again at our January meeting. It seemed to be well-received and helpful, so I hope you’ll give it a try.
To get to your ONE WORD, let’s take a little time to figure out what we you in your businesses this year. (If you want to do this for health, family, etc you can, but we will be focusing on business for this example.) Take a few minutes to sum up what you want in 1 Paragraph.That’s 5 sentences total. Make it personal, specific, and important. It may sound something like, “This year, I will build my direct sales business by growing my Team. I will be sure to work my personal business at the level of the Leader I desire to be, even before I am officially promoted to that level. I will take responsibility for making sure the work needed to make this a reality gets done. 2017 will be the year when I accept no excuses or let any distractions get in the way of what I want. I will be proud of what I have accomplished at the end of everyday.”
DID YOU DO IT??? DON’T CHEAT YOURSELF BY THINKING YOU’LL COME BACK TO THIS LATER.
Now, take that paragraph and reduce it to 1 sentence that sums up what you want to achieve. Your one sentence should encompass the most important items in your paragraph. This can be tough because we really have to DECLUTTER our thinking and boil it down to the essentials. Using the example above, it may sound like: “2017 will be the year where I accept no excuses for making my dream of becoming a (Leadership Level) a reality, and I will make sure I am doing the tasks necessary on a daily basis to add team members and reach the sales level I need. ”
MAKE SURE YOU DID IT BEFORE YOU READ ON!!!
Finally, take a few minute to look at your sentence and decide what your ONE WORD will be for 2017. It doesn’t have to be a word that is IN that sentence, it can be one that sums it up. It could be a noun, what you actually want. It could be a verb, what you are going to do. Make it an adjective to describe how you want to feel. It can be whatever you want it to be. Whatever you can hold on to and focus on when you need that extra push or guidance.
Some people are even finding their words on items and keeping them close at hand as a reminder of their focus. You could select a piece of jewelry that already has your word on it, an article of clothing like a “Believe” T-shirt, or even a motivational cell phone covers.
TIP: Can’t find anything with your word on it? Create your own personalized, engraveable piece of jewelry with your ONE WORD on it.
So, how did you do? DID YOU CREATE YOUR ONE WORD?
You can now put that word to use! Keep it where you can see it so you find motivation from it all year long. TAKE ACTION right now by writing it on a paper to hang on the refrigerator, create a poster, or print it and frame it to hang on your office wall. By keeping your word in front of you, you are sure to stay on task all year long!
1. Evaluate your life and then decide what you want.
Start with where you are at. Do you have the career you want? Do you have the relationships you want? How about your health? This is where you start. Ask yourself these questions then try to set a goal in each area. These don’t have to be big goals. Set small goals to start and achieve those goals. It gives you confidence when you achieve your goals, and then you can set larger goals to achieve.
2. Look at your obstacles and take steps to eliminate them.
What do you believe that is holding you back? What do you need to learn to help you reach your goals? Write these things down. It may not be easy to figure out why you believe what you believe. What you have to decide is whether or not your belief system serves you. Ask yourself these questions and keep asking them until you get the answers you need to resolve these issues.
3. Create a plan of action to follow to achieve your goals.
Once you know what you want, and you know what obstacles you are facing, then create your action plan. These are the steps you need to take to reach your goals. Your plan may be as detailed as possible. Just remember to be flexible. Add or delete steps as needed and stay focused.
4. Take action.
Taking action is key to reaching your goals. Consistency is important. Make it a point to take action on your goals every day. Visualize yourself succeeding in your goals.
5. Do what works; don’t do what doesn’t.
If you don’t use feedback to tell you how you are doing, you won’t know how close you are to reaching your goals. You also won’t know what steps you really need to take next to get to your goals.
Set your goals, create a plan of action, and then take action. Stay focused and use feedback to help you adjust course so you reach your goals.
