Every year I come up with 3 words to guide my next year. Well this year is no different. I got word number 1 a couple of months ago, but I patiently waited until the Lord told me what my other words would be. I finally got them on Christmas Eve. So I wanted to share with you what mine are and I want to hear from you what are your word(s) for 2019 that you will use as a guide for what you want to see happen.
I originally use to do just one word but a couple of years ago I stumbled across a blog post by Chris Brogan about his 3 words and I liked the concept. So I immediately put it into practice. to his post so you can get a great explanation of the practice.
So that is why and how I started this practice. But let's get to my words and what they mean to me.
. This has really been strong in me and I have already taken steps in that direction before the year has even ended. I want to focus on partnering with other businesses to help them grow and to help me grow. I want to partner on events and workshops next year. I want to partner on products and ideas. All of these things and more is what I mean by partnership. I'm already excited about a couple of new partnerships that will kick off this coming year and look forward to more opportunities moving forward.
. I spent a lot of 2018 running from pillar to post. I felt I pushed hard in some areas and burnt myself out in others. And more importantly I felt I wasn't doing what the Bible says by resting in the Lord. So in 2019 I will be resting in the Lord more because He got me and He's the expert in what I can't do myself or by myself.
. These last few months have been a little tough and has really reiterated the fact that I need to Trust in the Lord. With ! I'm casting my cares and trusting that He has me. I know He does, but when faced with everyday life you can get caught up with what you see and not with what we as believer's know to be true. So 2019 I will be fully trusting and walking by faith more.
So that's my 3 words for 2019. I would love to hear what your 1 or 3 words are for 2019. Drop them in the comments below. Let's do great things in 2019!
Just one more thing or two 😉…
When I get my 3 words I like to create a graphic that I then put on my phone and wallpaper of my iPad and laptop so I can always be reminded of what I am focusing on. You can also use a reminder app on your phone and set it to pop up daily for the year (I do this too). Try it yourself to see if it helps you too.
