Show Notes

Hello, my friends and welcome to Motivational Moments with Maria. I’m your host Coach Maria and thrilled to be here with you. My intent with this weekly podcast is to bring you some thoughts and ideas to keep you on your journey to live a fully productive, vibrant, and joyful life.   

Have you considered or chosen a word that to align you with your 2023 goals? 

Today, we are talking about one simple word that you can use in 2023 to remind you what you want to focus on.  This episode will be helpful whether your New Year's resolutions are still intact—and even if they're not, it's never too late to start getting back on track. It’s only the second week of the New Year.  Some of you are just wiping away the sleepiness of the holiday season and now is the time to get moving.  

Why is choosing a word important? Your word of the year will remind you what you want to focus on, and it will inspire you to be better. It's a great way to set goals, and it can help you achieve them 

Every year in January after I have reviewed my goals, I think of one word to remind myself to show up every day as my best self, to give of my best with intention. Last year my word was commitment. And I will be honest with you, I didn’t hold true to all the commitments I made to myself.  I did shoot for the moon and landed in the stars, so I felt pretty darn good.  

If you already have a word of the year, this is a great opportunity to check in with yourself and see how it's working for you. It may be early in the year but starting this habit of checking in with yourself is one-way high producing individuals stay high producing individuals.  They evaluate their performance and re-set as necessary.  One simple word will allow you to do that.  

If you keep a word top of mind, you will condition your mind to see and do things that will keep you focused on that word. A simple word can keep you on track for your achievement and reminds you what you are going after. 

Listen in for some tips on selecting your word.
