Do you choose a focus word at the beginning of a new year? I did last year, and for the life of me I couldn’t remember what it was. I was thinking it had something to do with relationships-big surprise! Apparently I lost my focus.
As 2017 comes to a close, I’m thinking about goals for my business and personal life, and again I’m choosing a focus word for the coming year. Maybe if I write it at the top of my planner each month, I can stay more focused, right?
2017 is the year I finally “got” the mind-set thing. I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never been the type of person who puts her goals in writing, but I finally understand the power in doing that.
Thanks to looking back on my iPad, I found last year’s word. Now I remember, and I did in fact keep the word “reach” in sight for the first part of the year.
My goal in 2018 is recruiting a Neal’s Yard Remedies team of business builders. I want to share Neal’s Yard Remedies products with many more clients so they will be improving their lives and their health. I want to offer the option to host and earn free and half-priced products.
So my focus word for 2018 is “invitation.” Invitation is a low pressure word. Whether I invite you for a cup of coffee or to join the Neal’s Yard Remedies family, it’s for you to decide if it’s right for you. I need to get out of my own way and not take it personally when my invitation is declined. In fact I need to think of each no as getting me that much closer to yes.
Invitations are not a life-long commitments. They are just invitations. It for you to decide if you accept and try for a month or two, or for the long haul. I invite you to learn more about what Neal’s Yard Remedies has to offer you. This company has been such a blessing to me and my family. I would love to see you blessed as well. Contact me for a “think about it” packet, and together let’s make 2018 our best year ever!
