One little word…

Inspire. ÂYes, that is my word. ÂI want to. I want to learn from others that do. I want to be Inspire(d). ÂOne little word #olw, and it’s Inspire. ÂPretty big meaning behind this one little word.

I am taking part in Ali Edwards “Big Picture Class” One little word… because, as she puts it: A single word can be a powerful thing. I had to chose a single word (yeah, this was hard for me… ONE.SINGLE.WORD!) that sums up what I wanted for myself in 2011. ÂHeck, I have enough trouble with full run-on sentences when talking, never mind choosing ONE WORD to describe what I want in 2011!! ÂBut I did it… after choosing 2 different ones – but knowing they weren’t quite right – I went back to my original… Inspire. ÂPretty fitting I think since it’s the name of My Company – and it’s something that I hope to do more of.

I am hoping that my One Little Word will evolve into many big things… I can hardly wait!

    I’ve been using the one word challenge for the past few years with great success – it keeps me so focused on my goals… 2009 – investing (in myself, my biz) 2010 – collaboration (with experts I love) and 2011 – self care (for me) and activation (of relationships I have created and formed – to do amazing work for those who want it and need it). So – i applaud the idea. If you make the conscious decision to ONLY accept work that will inspire you – well, this year should be a amazing year. Good for you Amanda.
