Choosing Your Word of the Year: A Guide to Setting Intentions for Success in 2024

Pick Multiple Words of The Year!

It is that time of the year again…yes…it is the “find your word of the year” time! 

Every year about this time I think about choosing a word to help guide me for the new year.  I think one word can help me define my year and goals based on what I want to achieve.

Now with that being said, and being the Aries girl that I am, I find it hard to pick one word.

So as I did last year, I am going to be choosing a few words to strategically work with in 2024.

I believe this will help me stay focused on myself and allow me to have some flexibility too as opportunities arise in my businesses.

My words this year are: Reset, Scale, Balance, Self and Travel

How I Chose My Words

Those of you who follow my Instagram know that my oldest daughter got married in 2023…it was magical by the way but as a “mob”, mother of the bride, a little stressful as that is to be expected.

I revamped my coaching program that I created for Realtors, which included moving my program to a new platform, creating new modules, streamlining content, and selling it.

We dealt with some health issues in our family, as many of you do.

I traveled almost exclusively for business or the wedding in 2023. Which, other than a few long weekends in the Florida Keys, which is my favorite place to unwind, I truly did not have a vacation at all.

So, moving forward, I am doing a reset of sorts for my health, business, and personal life.

Balance, self, and travel all play into each other regarding putting down a weekend a month where I am traveling for pleasure, moving my body daily including adding more stretching movements daily, which I started about 45 days ago, and self-care in the form of massages and facials along with not doing things anymore that I truly do not embrace or enjoy.

Manifest Your Best 2024

Many people we know started new ventures and businesses in 2021 especially as we all had to pivot due to Covid-19.

What we are seeing is a common theme of “I’ve done a ton of planting seeds and now I need to launch and tie up loose ends” or, my current business or occupation is not going to survive or has been eliminated, what is my next career chapter.

We are seeing words like. change, downsize, simplify, convert, monetize, growth, collaborate, invest, and focus.

What have you decided to monetize this coming year? Make sure you write that down where you can see it every day!

Finding a Great Planner

So along with choosing a word or words for 2024 think about adding a planner or journal to complement your online calendar. I like to write thoughts down and not always in my “notes” section on my phone or Trello.

Celebrate The Feeling Of Newness

There is nothing like cracking open a new book or opening up a beautiful bottle of champagne or smelling a new bloom on a rose bush to make you feel inspired, hopeful, and filled with joy… like a glittering New Year ahead of you …your future is filled with opportunity and success!

Word Of The Year Tips

So in the spirit of choosing a word (s) of the year here are 7 tips to help you manifest and showcase the best word or words for you!

1. Reflect on what you imagine your New Year to be like and what words embrace that vision.

    2. Look for inspiration from movies, quotes, the written word, and other areas in your life to help you narrow down your choice or choices.

    3. Think about what brings you joy, growth, happiness and energy!

    4. Meditate or have some quiet time to see what words bubble up.

    5. What do you want more or less of this coming year?

    6. Make sure you write down your word (s) and post them where you can see them!

    7. Where to write them you may be asking? How about on sticky notes, a few pretty note cards, or write that word on your bathroom mirror with your favorite lipstick… yes, I have been known to do that with my MAC St. Germain!  

    8. Make sure to share with someone you trust or your special crew to keep you accountable and frankly to put out into the universe!
