If I had to describe 2015 in one word I would choose roller coaster because it was definitely one up and down after another. Then if I had to think about it that's really how the last five years have been, some years bumpier than others. Much of 2015 was spent attempting to get my life in business, blogging, and finances. I did not accomplish as much as I would have liked so this year, 2016, I am Determined to make significant changes. Because I am focused on having a successful 2016, my personal word for the year is "determination."
When I think of someone that is determined they are focused on accomplishing their goal, they allow little to get in their way. A few inspirational synonyms are conviction, drive, fortitude, grit, persistence, purpose, steadfastness, and tenacity.
Along with my personal word my motto for the year is, "focus on the results, not the struggle to get there." On any road to greatness there are many challenges but if you focus on the results instead of the struggles the journey is much easier.
I'm inspired by the many powerful women bloggers in Bloggers Like Me whom I have witnessed take their dream and make it a reality, such as beauty and fashion blogger, Lisa of Lisa a la Mode whose drive allowed her to transition from employed to self-employed without skipping a beat.
One of my goals with this blog is to remain on track by sticking to a regular posting schedule therefore, be ready to see more of me in 2016. If you have not done so already subscribe to receive regular updates and exclusive content.
Are you ready for 2016? What's your one word?
