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.
