Have You Created Your Yearly Theme Yet?

    December 12, 2002

New Years’ Resolutions don’t last to long, do they? Instead, consider creating a theme to help keep you focused throughout the year.

Themes can be uplifting. Have you ever given a birthday party and asked people to bring gifts with a “garden” or “fishing” theme? I know someone who asked people to bring something they made themselves! What wonderful ideas! To actually get what you want at your party!

A theme can help you get what you want out of life, too. Anyone who is evolving, can be helped considerably by having a terrific support network. Well, themes are part of a person’s support structure, the part that comes from the inside-out. When you create a theme for the year (or month, or quarter), you will be automatically pushed forward towards your goals. Why? Your theme helps keep focused by providing you with a starting point during your decision making process. So important are themes, that creating a theme is the first of 24 steps towards creating a strong “Personal Foundation,” a program that many coaches offer their clients.

Themes can be a few words… or even one word to describe what you overall want to accomplish for the year. What’s important is that what you’ve created inspires you into action and is easy to remember. I recommend that you write your theme on index cards strategically placed around your home and office. A theme located near your mirror or designed on a poster for your office is a quick reminder of what you want to manifest. Some examples are…


I’m worth it!

Financial Freedom Here I Come!

Move’n on.

Have fun, fun, fun in all I do!

Put down roots.

Be present, present be.

Be a successful me.

Big leaps of faith

Action, Action, Action

I’ve made it

Enjoying all I have

With the holidays just around the corner, now is a great time to create your theme for the next year. But if you’re reading this article any other time of the year, remember, you can create a theme anytime!
