My One Word Resolution for 2017: Manifest

Hello Beauties,

We’ve now reached the 2nd week of February, which is typically the time where most new years resolutions take a turn for the worst. I mean really… just 1 month after the countdown, and most of us have already resorted back to our old ways without a second thought.

Well… I’m here to say don’t give up! If you’ve set a goal or two for this year don’t be another failing statistic! If you already caved, or if you never set a goal for the new year to begin with, no worries. It’s not to late to turn things around. I recently learned of an easier approach to achieving great things in just one year. All it takes is one word. You simply choose a single word to guide you towards a happy and more fulfilling year.

The Purpose of Finding Your Word:

In comparison to setting resolutions, finding one word to live by is an entirely different and more manageable approach to achieving greatness. Often times we set too many goals, or our goals aren’t well thought out. This makes it a hell of a lot easier to just give up and go back to our old habits. Your one word should sum up your prime focus for the next 365 days, and should serve as a reminder or a promise to yourself.

This is not a new strategy. People have been doing this for years and have achieved great results. After reading about the process and a few great testimonies, I was inspired to find my own word for 2017. I would’ve loved to kick off the year with something like this, but it’s still early enough in the year to inspire and be inspired. Plus, with February being the time where most resolutions fail, this post could be arriving just in time for some of you!

My Word:

So right to it, I find that the perfect word for me is “Manifest.” Over the years I’ve come to believe that we manifest every experience, personal encounter, and good or bad result all on our own. How we act, how we perceive things, and how we portray ourselves is all manifested into our real lives simply through the power of our own thoughts. Basically how we feel on the inside is how we present ourselves on the outside. If you’re unclear on what I’m getting at, allow me to further explain.

The word manifest can be defined a few different ways. The version that I’m referring to implies that what we “intend,” we bring into actual existence. Not just the tangible, but the intangible as well. In other words, what we think about, we bring about. That goes for our successes, failures, experiences, and so on. For example, if you’re in a toxic relationship, hate your job, or whatever the case may be, you have to take responsibility by acknowledging that you somehow someway welcomed this into your life. Similarly, if you’re over the moon in love, have the career you’ve always dreamed of and so forth, that’s all a result of what you intended into your life. We intentionally put ourselves in these scenarios. BUT remember, we can just as easily get ourselves out by simply changing our mind, desire, and focus.

I’ve manifested A LOT in my life. Both good and bad. Every year I set big goals for myself, and this year is no different in that sense. Only now, if I ever fall off track I’ll have my word to remind me of all of the things I want to bring into my life this year. I’m using this process as a secondary tool to the goals/resolutions I’ve already set for this year. You can too! Just give it a try!

Questions of the Day:

What is your word for 2017? What are your intentions for 2017? Have you used this resolution technique before?

    My word is “Focus” At times I find myself saying it over and over in my head, and it is a word that I think can help many creatives out there! Focus on our goals, Focus on our health, Focus for success in our creative field.
