think thursday: my word of the year

So we're 15 days into the new year and I've finally figured out what my word of the year is.  Why a word of the year you ask?  Well, in my opinion, it's a heck of a lot simpler to concentrate on a word (especially when your goals are directly tied to that word) than to continuously go back to your long list of resolutions.  Don't get me wrong, I do have some things that I want to accomplish this year and I have written them down to remind myself.  I've even started a new vision board, but ultimately, the possibility of me accomplishing everything I want this year all boils down to one thing... FOCUS.
From my business to my fitness journey, I won't be as successful as I'd like to be if I continue to lose focus.
In business, I gotta stop comparing myself to other businesses.  There is no rule book that says I have to be where so and so is, or one that tells me what "success" look like.  I must focus more on making Wrist Soiree better and not everything else.  The success of my business is determined by me and as long as I stay focused on it and it alone, it will be as successful I want it to be.
As far as my fitness journey, I've started to doubt myself a bit.  Weird right?  I've lost over 100lbs and I'm starting to doubt being able to take it to the next level of becoming fit.  But then, what exactly does that mean?  Is that just a sign of me possibly comparing myself to others?  I think so.  I'm constantly seeing what others have accomplished and I'm starting to wonder how long it will take for me to do the same.  But then, by doing that, I push my strengths aside.  Staying focused on the message I want to deliver to people that are inspired by me is very important.  I can't be the best X, but I can be the best Lakeitha.   
Basically, I need to have tunnel vision.  I don't want to keep letting other things around me throw me off course. 
So what say you?  Do you have a word of the year?  Or what about resolutions?  I really am excited about 2015 and everything I plan to accomplish.

Thanks for this post! I share your exact sentiments about staying focused on self and not comparing "self" to others. Your success and how you define it will not look like others. YOU define your own success and what you want yours to look like.

And the fitness journey...there aren't many people I look to for inspiration, but you've been that one person that I turn to when I feel like this waist isn't going anywhere! Yours is SNATCHED and if I stay focused, mine that be snatched too!

I wish you all the success you can handle in 2015 and beyond. Continue blessing us with your story!

Best Wishes!

Focus is a great word of the year! I think mines should be consistency which will tie into me focusing! I too also seem to compare myself to other women which is not a positive thing. I find when I do that I doubt myself and do not accomplish what I need to accomplish. My husband always says to me "stop desiring what others have and get it yourself." I need to take heed to this. My girl friend (whom I haven't seen in years) was recently out in Cali (where I'm from) this past weekend for the IMATS and I didn't not go and see her because she recently lost a substantial amount of weight and I've gained. No matter how she lost it (she had weight loss surgery) I still feel bad because this weight loss journey of mine has been hell for me and my consistency and focus has been lacking. So I missed my friend... anywho... sorry for the long rant lol i guess i needed to get that out... thank you for always sharing your journey. I will be adding focus to my words of the year list! :)
