Have you chosen you word for 2017

Do you have one word to guide you and your life and/or business this year?

if not do you think you will?

I find the process helpful.

It forces me to look at what’s important for my life and business, not just what’s urgent or maybe even interesting

In the video below I show you the process I used to choose my word for the year or I let the word choose me.

Last year I chose 3 words

Bold, Focus and Dynamic.

I even had the words put on the bold painting I did for one of my mugs

This year I have one main word Trust and four supportive words.

I will see how that goes.

As I explain in the video I used my Heart Whisper Oracle Cards to choose my word for the year.

The card confirmed that this was to be my word. I then journaled about my feelings I desire to come from this word:

Abundance will flow when you trust in you and act on who you truly are here to be and to serve.

Be Bold

Be Open

Be Love

 Be True

Be Sharing

Spread your wings and step into your truth.

It’s time to believe, to be true to you and really step into your power.

You know that space where love just is.

You know you are enough and there is a peace within that allows you to know you can.

Step into that space NOW and feel the abundance of the moment.

I would love to read what your word is for the year and how you chose it. 

Why did you chose it and how will it make you shine in 2017?

  1. Love your marketing strategy to brand our word. The word that comes to mind is “focus”. I love all the great ideas that come to mind that can send me off in all directions. So, I think focus is a good choice to keep me on track this year.

  2. My 2017 word is teamwork. I’m going to be leading a large project this year and I need to build trust and support across all the people and elements of the project. Teamwork is a big word, requiring humor and humility and insight from the bottom up and top down.

    1. Kim thanks for sharing your word- yes that is a big word love humor, humility and insight as your supporting words- look forward to reading about your project xxx

  3. I worked with Ease and Fruition in 2016. This year I feel very called to have Service as a key word for what I want to do in the world, but I just came across a process that Chris Brogan uses and he strongly suggests 3 words for very specific reasons. I am going to sit with your idea, Suzie and also other ideas to come up with 3 words that both stand independently, but also work together harmoniously. We’ll see where it leads me, as 2016 was not exactly about ease or fruition. However, it was a 9 year, a completion year so perhaps that is what I did. As 2017 is a 1 year in a new 9 year cycle, it really offers us new beginnings and a chance to create a new!

    1. Yes Beverley- Last year i worked with 3 words, this year i like the underpinning idea as My year being on of Trust that that is simple and flows with ease and grace . i like Vatsala’a My word this year is Integrate with the byline – Abundance & Prosperity with Creative Magic. yes I think 2017 heraling in a 1 year is a wonderful opportunity for change Thanks for sharing xxx

    1. Yes Betty- I totally agree and i always remember a close friend saying after my healing journey that i give Hope and a word i included in my cards. Thanks for sharing xx

    1. Love it Sue – one of my underpinning words and one i am painting for a gift too Yes I think 2017 is the start of a cycle of ease. Thanks for sharing your thoughts xx

  4. Wonderful as always Suzie! Personally, I prefer to work with themes but the intention is the same, to remain focused on our goals and dreams. I’ve used this strategy for the past 3 years so I’m a big believer, but of course as you have said many times yourself, a strategy is only as good as the actions we take. I’ve known many more people who invested way more energy in picking a word than ever doing anything with it so it’s important that we keep in mind your word a tool, not the game plan.

    1. Hi Marty, thanks for sharing your process and I understand how a theme can have the same if maybe not more powerful intention. Great reminder re taking action. My word this year is a daily intention for me xxx

  5. My word for 2016 was Phoenix, Suzie, and it worked well to keep me going in a year that could be described as a Gothic/Alice in Wonderland/adventurous goulash. 🙂

    My word this year is Integrate with the byline – Abundance & Prosperity with Creative Magic.

    Let’s see how 2017 works out as a powerful number 1 year.

  6. Suzie, Love your process of choosing your word for the year.
    My Mantra or words for this year is CARPE DIEM 🙂 Every year I choose just one word. But this year seems very expansive for me on a personal and business sense. Lots of internal breakthroughs happened as the year changed. Hence Carpe Diem. I’m in full mode to Seize this year and make it my year to FLY. No limits.
    xoxo, Z~

  7. Loved your video and I have been using one word yearly themes for quite some time. My 2017 word is expression as I am ready to express my authentic self through my writing, video and by starting a blog. This is my year to truly express myself and my creativity.

  8. I really liked Suzie how you went deeper and discovered your real words. Thank you for sharing. My words are Divine Intervention. It had been my theme for the clients’ work that I do (many miracles happen for my clients once they start opening up to possibilities) and I realized that it works for me too. As I decided to embrace these words for myself I am witnessing miracles all the time. Very much like you Suzie, I TRUST.

  9. Healing is the word for this year for me, Suzie. I am on a healing path and am changing/ have changed how I eat, how I exercise, so many things. I am working with a distance healer recommended by my cousin, and I am blown away by the results so far! New Year love to you! <3

    1. Jean i am delighted that you are attracting the people and resources you need for you healing journey- you will have an amazing story to share and i look forward to supporting and watching you heal xxx

  10. As you know my word for 2017 is UNCOMPLICATED and the supporting words are ease and simplicity. 2017 is also the year of living goalessly – to meander more, be more and do less. Of course this flies in the face of me believing I’m an overachiever and need to have a plan for just about everything. I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂

    1. Peggy I love your words and I am looking forward to watching how you release you overachieving streak. Right now I seem to be joining you as I am really not wanting to lay out a specific plan, beyond getting my book completed and my art into the world. I do ned a plan for that to complete- We are told we need goals so this will be interesting for you xxx

  11. I have two words, Suzie: Prospering Exxxxxpansion! Last year it was”Passionate, Prospering Partnerships in Sacred Service” or P3 + S2. I was invited to be a part of 6 anthologies; I happily accepted and 4 were published last year with two coming out this Spring. I can’t wait to see what unfolds from the Universe with these TWO, NEW WORDS! Appreciating your beautiful words, “…You know that space where love just is.
    You know you are enough and there is a peace within that allows you to know you can.
    Step into that space NOW and fell the abundance of the moment.” xo Hugs to you!

  12. Thank you for suggesting this idea, Suzie. I like it. The single word for the coming year that just automatically popped into my mind is “growth.” Feels right. I love the FOCUS acronym. I hadn’t heard that one before.

  13. Presence is a beautiful word Sandra and sounds like you too. Hone is to focus and not sure how you would incorporate fluctuate. do you still do the annual reading that is in Leonie’s planners? I have just done a new one for myself with a focus card to start with in the centre surrounded by the twelve cards for the month-I might write a blog post on it. Having the focus card underpinning the 12 months felt good. xxx

  14. I haven’t decided on my word for the year yet, Suzie. “Presence” is a strong possibility, however I also want to convey a sense of embodiment. And, I had a Tarot reading done, which suggested some other words like “hone” and “fluctuate.” I love how you have a main word as well as supporting words. That may be the perfect way for me to go too.

  15. I feel like focus is the right word for me this year. Thanks for the reminder to pick word for the year, I think that is so helpful. So great that you make art objects for the words. You are so creative, Suzie. Have a great new year!

    1. Cathy focus is a great word also wonderful acronym: Follow one course until successful 🙂 Yes I find a word does help keep one on track . Thanks yes planning more creativity xxx
