I recently read about the one word challenge. It actually has been going on for a few years. The one word challenge is a word you pick that is suppose to define your year for achieving your goals or resolutions.
I thought of several words that I could have picked and rattled my brain as to what could be the defining word for 2012. They gave you some tips which I enclosed in my own words.
Step#1 Determine the person you are striving to become for 2012. Now you could use this to lose weight, get in control of your finances or simply make amends with a family member or becoming closer to your god or religion
The first step is to simply take some time and decide what kind of person you want to be at the end of this year. This goes beyond simply being healthier but this word will dictate how you will achieve it over the next 12 months.
step #2- Get a picture of yourself, make a collage, out line on how you plan to achieve that picture in your mind.
step#3- The hard part- pick your word! I think for me this is hard, since I had so many to pick from. I thought discipline, faith, healthy and then I thought "BELIEVE" I need to believe in myself I can do this, nobody else can do this battle for me. They did not do this to my body, no matter what excuse I gave. Yeah, I have stress, I had poor eating habits, my job makes me eat on the run, but the truth is I chose to let them dictate the broken down person I have become. So for 2012 I will "Believe in myself to continue to lose weight, exercise faithfully and ask for help if I need it." I am so worth the effort and did not "believe this in october when I started"
We are worth the effort so pick your word, there are so many choices that define who you are. Your weight, resolutions that you are making do not define you only you can determine what makes them you.
So 2012 I vow to believe in myself!!!
