As we begin another new year, we invite our friends, colleagues and clients to accept the Gifted Leaders’ ONE WORD Challenge. That means choosing a single word as your focus for the year and, most importantly, “going public” with your commitment.
In their book, “One Word That Will Change Your Life,” authors Dan Britton, Jimmy Page and Jon Gordon tell us that there’s a word meant for you and when you find it, live it, and share it, your life will become more rewarding and exciting than ever.
I’ve followed their advice for the last five years and my words, LIGHT, TOGETHER, UNLEASHED, and PRESENCE, and CONNECTIONS have provided a sense of direction that have led to tangible results in my work and life. For me, the process is as simple as reflecting on what’s important in my life at the moment and listening for a single word that sticks.
For 2018, my word is PEACE! 2017 brought some challenges for our family and business which I initially reacted to with frustration and anger. Through working with my coach, Brad Britton, I realized that my true gift to others is in being a peaceful, light-hearted presence. The word PEACE captures that intention.
So … what’s your ONE WORD for 2018?
Use #GLOWC2018 whenever and wherever you share your word.
