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!
Setting a goal is a process where you have to be clearer than water.
“Make more money” or “Being happier” are not clear desires.
Be clear on the amount of money you want, the type of business you want, how you will serve your clients, the specific actions that make you happy and so on.
See your dream as if it’s already yours, even though it has not materialized yet. The mind does not know the difference between imagination and reality and if you imagine your dream as already accomplished, your mind, feelings and emotions will experience it that way and it will make you think, say and do things that will allow you to achieve it.
You have to feel how good it feels to accomplish your dream?
Imagine yourself earning the money you desire, owning and running a successful business, seeing how your product or service helps customers, traveling, being healthy and happy, building relationships, etc. Generate the warm, powerful feelings that your dream triggers within you and feel it.
One thing is for sure, the path toward your dream will be filled with ups and downs. You will encounter disappointments and nay-Sayers along the way.
The good thing is that these are all opportunities to clarify and enhance your dream.
Emerson said, “These are occasions a good learner would not miss”.
Use these moments as lessons and indicators that will help you booster your dream even more.
Dreams require daily cultivation.
Make contact with those who can help support your dream.
Make the call, take the action and follow through every day.
In addition, allow others to support you on your journey. As you envision and see your dream accomplished you will draw the people and situations to you who can support it.
DO IT NOW!!!
Stay Positive, Stay Sharp, Stay Strong.
