“If you can transcend from the dark rut of disempowered thinking to the bright light of an empowered agreement with reality, you will see opportunities, not barriers. You will see the finish line, not the hurdles.” -Steve Maraboli
Ready to bring forth your word for 2020? I love the magic of new beginnings and 2020 more than a new year is the opening of a new decade.
This is a good time to look back and celebrate all the achievements that you had. This post is an invitation to deepen the exploration of yourself and determine your direction and say no to things that are distractions.
Whether selecting your word for the new year is a personal tradition or it’s something new for you, join me in this quest. I’m a huge advocate of an intentional life because I see way too often people think they must take life the way it comes to them and they just can’t see there are exciting possibilities around them. I guess all of this is to say live deliberately!
Before you sit down to select your word for 2020, find some alone time in a comfortable place, get a cup of tea, create a candlelit ambiance and be dazzled by the blessedness of new beginnings. Take time to dream and plan in a dedicated journal that you will continue to use throughout the new year. Give yourself clarity about what you want before you select your word.
These questions may guide your discovery process towards your word for 2020:
- In what ways have you grown the person you were a year ago?
- How does that help you make sense of your life?
- What does 2020 look like for you?
- What makes you feel happy?
- How can you unlock new parts of yourself?
- What do you wish for most?
- What do you need?
- What would be inspiring for you to achieve?
- What’s your calling?
- What could be an opportunity to grow?
- Where are you going?
- What will success look like for you at the end of 2020?
- I now allow myself to ___________________.
- I’m now choosing to experience _______________.
My word for 2019 was MOMENTUM because I wanted to take new chances and play bigger to serve better my community. And as author Carlos Castañeda describes intention as “a force that exists in the universe that when beckoned, sets up the path for attainment which means we can accomplish what we set out to do”, I received four big opportunities where I answered led by my heart and dharma which started the momentum claimed.
The word that is calling me for 2020 is VISIBILITY. A word that demands a shift in me to grow outside my comfort zone and marks a journey in committing to express myself in new ways and live more boldly. I’m willing to sit in the discomfort of something new to me, in order to expand beyond the known.
Here are some words to inspire you to select your theme word for the new year:
Be determined to make your dreams come true. It’s a daily choice and commitment. Take aligned action towards your intentions. Get ready to claim your best self and be fully present for your life. Live by what makes you feel expansive. Let your theme word be your compass for 2020. Remind yourself that you can make things happen for you and take congruent steps towards your vision.
When you define your goals, set your theme word and commit to it, wonderful things become possible. Tune into your new word frequency, let go of what no longer serves you and take unprecedented action. Remember to celebrate your small wins and have fun in the process!
