Do you like to choose a word of the year? If so I am curious, what is your one word for 2016?
Last year my family and I chose COURAGE for our 2015 word of the year. We had no idea how much courage we would embody throughout the year. I wanted my kids to gain courage and they certainly did. Having been our hardest year yet we all became very courageous! We learned so many valuable lessons in 2015. Going into this new year we are certainly in a better spot than I could have ever imagined we would be.
Heading into 2016 we have chosen SUCCESS as our 2016 word. “Success doesn’t come to you, you go to it.” Marva Collins. This year we are taking big steps to become successful in all areas of our life. We want to gain success in our business/careers, school/academically, talents, sports, friendships and within our family. The definition of success is ‘the accomplishment of an aim or purpose’. We are aiming very high this year! Skies the limit!!
We are setting personal and family goals in 7 key areas of our life; faith, family, friends, finance, fitness, field, & fun. To become balanced in these areas is to become OOLA. What is Oola®? Oola is a state of awesomeness! It’s unlocking the potential for greatness that lies within each of us. It’s finding true purpose and meaning for your life. The OolaGuys, Dr. Dave Braun and Dr. Troy Amdahl, identified seven areas that people need to balance and grow to live a rich and fulfilled life. My husband and I will be reading Oola: Finding Balance in an Unbalanced World together. We hope by working as a team we can help keep one another accountable and obtain a balanced life together.
This year is going to take a lot of hard work but we are ready for it!!
I’d love to hear your 2016 word of the year in the comments below!
