Choosing a word of the year is important because it can encourage and remind you of your goals and resolutions. Many people pick this out in December but I decided that I would enjoy the holidays and take January to reflect on last year and decide what I would like to work on in 2018.
A list of good words:
My 2018 Word of the year Is:
Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
Definition from: Google Dictionary
I picked this word to help remind me to keep going and keep trying even if there are road blocks. Road blocks have prevented me from achieving goals in the past. I think, that I personally need to try harder and not let things that are sometimes out of my control stop me. I need to figure a way through all barriers. My mom tells me all the time, “it builds character to try hard and not let anything get in my way”. So, If I want it bad enough I can make it happen as long as it’s achievable.
It is helpful to have this word written everywhere so that it constantly reminds you of what you are working for. Keeping this word visible, like wearing a necklace with the word on it or having a sticker attached to your mirror are ideas that may help you remember.
