I recently discovered this wonderful book, Life Word; Discover Your One Word to Leave a Legacy. Every year I like to pick a word as a theme for the upcoming year. My word for 2017 is CREATE. In Life Word, the authors encourage you to discover what your Life Word is, which in turn will help you to determine what you want your legacy to be. They suggest that each year, each word becomes a chapter in the story of your life. Wether you are painting a house, leading seminars, raising your family, rescuing animals, etc, you'll be able to more congruently align yourself with the highest vision for yourself. As you discover your Life Word, "you get a compelling vision for the future: it helps you align your priorities, energy, and actions behind your purpose and passion."
The authors have create a three-part process to determine your Life Word:
1. Define your Power. - Who are you meant to be?
2. Determine your Purpose. - Why are you here?
3. Discover your Passion. - What energizes you?
The authors suggest that your Life Word becomes the title of your life story. As you sit with this notion, perhaps begin answering the questions above. Allow your curiosity to lead you down the most wildly amazing trails towards your deepest dreams. As we begin owning our gifts, we leave an incredible imprint on this Earth. We might revolutionize the world with Love, we might offer a smattering of Compassion, we might hold a Vision so great that change really does begin happening, or perhaps we fiercely hold Equality at the forefront of our mission.
You are not here to be ordinary, you my friends are here to be extraordinary. We all have a special and unique light to share with the world. I hope this book offers you the insight to more clearly and presently live your legacy to life.
