Every year I love to choose a theme word that carries me throughout the year.
In 2021, I chose GROWTH.
And wow, did I experience growth in 2021!
I got so out of my comfort zone.
I had growth in my business and in myself.
I did a bunch of things I honestly thought I would never do …
- Hosted two successful online summits
- Ran my first Facebook Challenge
- Went live on Facebook for 90 days
- Tripled my annual revenue
- Completed another coaching certification
- Completed another Clinical Hypnotherapy certification
- Walked 2,000 km
By far the hardest thing was putting myself out there.
Facebook lives scared the living daylights out of me – even just one, let alone 90 days!
Contacting speakers for my first summit was far more challenging than I ever imagined too.
But I stayed persistent.
I consistently showed up even when, a lot of the time, I felt like turning around and walking the other way!
Did I say walking? I meant running …
Yet the GROWTH that happened made it all worthwhile as well as the incredible results I have seen in both my business and in my personal life.
On top of all the amazing growth, I also discovered the wonderful trait of high sensitivity (HSP).
None of these achievements and breakthroughs would have been possible without the belief in myself that I could indeed grow.
All year, no matter what demons I faced, I kept coming back to my theme word – GROWTH.
Now for 2022 ….
So I’ve been sitting with this year’s theme word for over two weeks now as I wanted to make sure I had chosen the word that resonated best for me.
One word just keeps popping up which is ALIGNMENT.
Every time I hear it, I get chills and that ‘knowing’ feeling in my heart and in my gut that ALIGNMENT is the theme word for me for 2022.
My mentor, Gemma Went, mentioned ALIGNMENT on a recent podcast and also in one of our coaching calls.
It even popped up when we were watching the Matrix Trilogy over Christmas – our fav box set!
Each time I heard it or read it, I knew!
I don’t know about you, but there have been many times in my life that I’ve done things just to please others.
Even if it wasn’t aligned to my values, my priorities and my core beliefs. (It’s the people pleaser in me!)
This year, when things come up, I will only do them if they align with my truth and my mission.
My mission is to serve other highly sensitive entrepreneurs through my coaching and my programs.
To stay on track with this, I will keep coming back to my theme word for 2022 – ALIGNMENT.
If an opportunity comes up that doesn’t align, I will gently turn it down.
When those inevitable bright and shiny things try to lure me in, I will pause, reflect and do what aligns and let go of the rest.
I won’t be drawn into other’s opinions and beliefs when I know deep down what I believe and what feels right for me, my family and my clients.
Interestingly, part of my morning mantra that I say upon awakening has the phrase “with every breath I take, I feel myself becoming more and more aligned with the flow. The energy that creates worlds …. “.
More about this mantra in my next blog post 😃
