For the last several years I have declared a theme to start the New Year. This one word focus serves as a powerful guide to influence my mindset over the next 365 days. This year my theme for 2016 is Posture.
Full Definition of Posture:
- the position or bearing of the body whether characteristic or assumed for a special purpose, the pose of a model or artistic figure
- state or condition at a given time especially with respect to capability in particular circumstances <maintain a competitive posture in the market>
- a conscious mental or outward behavioral attitude
The first component of the definition, and most recognized, deals with the positioning of ones body. My selection of posture for a theme describes a positioning for me as well, only it is my mind. In order to achieve the goals I have for 2016, I know my mind has to be in the right place.
At Leveraging Life Now Coaching, we encourage clients to create a theme for the upcoming year. This exercise allows them to focus on maintaining a mindset which can produce the outcomes they desire.
My expectations are high for the New Year as my executive coaching business continues to grow. It is truly exciting to have an opportunity to collaborate on The Art of Self Promotion book launch. And later this year I will offer a professional development workshop to help business owners create raving fans for their businesses.
My conscious mental attitude is much like an athlete who is now competing at a much higher level. I have to be willing to ask for help and seek the advice of my coach. I must apply the advice offered and embrace the critiques being shared which will ultimately help me be more productive.
Happy New Year and if you would like to learn more about creating a theme for 2016, let me know.
