Do you pick a word to be your theme for the new year?

I never used to but a few years ago, I decided to give it a whirl. I picked the word “Thrive” that year and I found that as I made every single decision I began to assess….will this help me thrive?

That year I went through a lot of personal transformation that helped me dissolve several situations that were exhausting me. In their place, I welcomed in opportunities that put me back on track for thriving. Interesting enough, Ariana Huffington came out with her book Thrive that year too. 

Now I’m a huge fan of picking a word, but some people struggle with the practice. So I invited a new friend of mine, Maiko Sakai, to join me for this last Amplify Your Success Podcast episode of 2019 to help you uncover YOUR word for the new year.

Be sure to join the conversation in the Amplify Your Authority Community and share your input there too.
