Twelve years ago, I read the book, One Word That Will Change Your Life, and to say that the book lived up to its title would be an understatement.
I think is it was the title that captured my curiosity. But it was the promise within the introduction that compelled me to purchase the book:
If we could give you one thing that would improve your life in incredible ways, would you receive it?
If this one thing was so intuitive and easy to use that you would be crazy not to try it, would you give it a shot?
It was December 2010 and I found myself in a bit of a funk. The year had been filled with challenges, both personal and professional.
The dealership was having a great year, but battling a rare form of cancer that had metastasized, three surgeries, and over sixty radiation treatments had certainly taken its tool.
My nature was to power through obstacles and challenges when they appeared in my life or arose in my career. So, when cancer was introduced into my world, I took the same approach. But in doing so, I was exhausted.
So, after reading One Word, and considering my current state of exhaustion, the one word theme I chose for the upcoming year was “Pause”. But little did I know, some 45 days later I would find out my cancer had returned for a third time, with a stage 4 diagnosis.
The word “Pause” for me, that year, under those circumstances, was transformation!
Since then, I’ve shared One Word with family, friends, and in my coaching practice. And most would say that by adopting a One Word 365 mindset, they found clarity, purpose, power, and passion. All of which were driving forces that kept the vision alive for the next 365 days.
How does something that sounds so simple, work so effectively?
Words are powerful!
When words are used thoughtfully and intentionally, they have the power. They can inspire, motivate, and energize. Words can heal, encourage, and make what seems impossible… possible.
The simple power of the One Word 365 mindset impacts the key components in your life. Something I refer to as the Six F’s: Faith, Family, Friends, Finances, Fitness, and Fun!
