My 2017 Word of the Year – YES

Happy New Year!

Hey welcome back to another episode of The Bootstrap Boutique where beginners build businesses, I am so glad you’re here.

Last week I shared with you in the last week of 2016 the goals that I wanted to accomplish in the first quarter of 2017 and in about two weeks I’m going to shoot an update video to let you know how I’m doing with those things, but what I wanted to talk about today is something that is going to span the whole year.

And that is my word of the year.

Lots of people do words of the year, its something that they try to carry through the whole year and I’ve always thought it was a really special and powerful thing and so I thought, yeah, I should probably do that for this year.  And hopefully you have a word of the year that you can share with me also.

So I kind of think of the word of the year as an affirmation. What do I want to keep my mind focused on as I go through the year because we all know it gets really tough to stay focused sometimes.  So I’ve thought about this a lot in the last few weeks of December and what I’ve decided my word of the year is going to be is “Yes.”

As someone with an already pretty full plate, saying yes to things seems a little crazy.  I probably should be saying no to more things, but you know, your life is your life and you get out of it what you put into it, so I want to make a point of saying yes more often and doing things that take me out of my comfort zone.

So yes to launching more products on Amazon, yes to doing outreach to you guys who watch these videos and learn something from them, yes to actually, and this is the scary one for me, going out to a conference or event somewhere this year in the real world. Yes to opportunities that come my way, even the ones I’m not expecting or planning for, I just cannot wait to see where 2017 takes all of us and I really hope that you’ll stay along for the ride.

I would love to know if you have a word of the year, and if you do, what is it? Words of the year typically are things that are very positive, so it might be family, it might be yes, it might be no, because no can also be positive if you are just way overstuffed in your life. It could be passion, it could be authenticity, it could be learning, it could be growing, it could be simplicity. Whatever is important to you, whatever you need to draw back into through the year, make that your word of the year.  Put it up somewhere where you can see it and lets go.

Lets do it, let’s make this an awesome year.
