What’s Your Word for 2015?

For the past couple of years, toward the end of the year, I have posted this question on social networks. I have received a lot of wonderful feedback from those who replied in the past so I’m continuing the tradition again this year. Perhaps one (or several) of these words will serve as inspiration for you (in your life, your business or perhaps, when you blog).

What is your word for 2015%

What’s your word for 2015?

Here are some of the words and creative responses my friends and colleagues shared with me on both Facebook and LinkedIn:

Patty Farmer – Leverage
Christiana Molinari – Excellence
Laurie Nicholson Pena Scheiner – Gratitude
Margie Hanson – Clarity
Kimberly Spear – Sagacity
Chasen Chess – Change
Lisa Montanaro – Adventure
Kim Adkins – Aloha
Tanja Gardner – Flow
Molly Ksander – Peace within
Melodieann Whitely – Renew
Phyllis Lippe – Simplify
Pam Thayer – Love
Judy Cummings LaMaitis – Exciting
Desiree Wolfe – Prosperity
Michelle Mazur – Harvest
Donna Kozik – Engagement
Robert Kennedy III – Impact
Robyn Mather – Expansive
Maria Tesoro – Thrive
Randy Kozerski – Forward
William McPeck – Action
William Starks – Focus
Maria Adkins – Breathe

When I asked myself this question last year, the answer was GRATITUDE. Each day I either wrote down or thought about what I was grateful for and that’s a practice I’ll continue.

The word EMPOWERMENT also came up for me in 2014 and with the release of my book around the corner, I’ll be able to reach out and empower more people to gain exposure for their business, attract more happy clients, succeed in their endeavors and live their dreams!

Now, when I ask myself the question “What’s your word for 2015?”, the answer that rises to the surface is LOVE – love for family, friends, and colleagues, expressing love in the message I share with others, spreading and accepting an abundance of love in my life and finding my true love & life partner.

Adventure . . . focus . . . prosperity. Do any of the above “mantras” resonate with you? Please share your inspirational word for the new year in the comment section below because I’d love to hear from you.

Thanks to everyone for sharing their word(s). Here’s wishing each and every one of you lots of joy, love, laughter and sweet success in the new year.

  2. Debra – Thanks so much for including me in your post! I love the one-word theme. Have been using it for years. It seems to be a more gentle, but still powerful, guide, as opposed to an obligatory list of resolutions. So here is to a year filled with LOVE for you, and ADVENTURE for me. Happy New Year – Lisa

  3. Hi Debra – what an amazing, inspiring list of words for 2015.
    2014 took me in a bit of an odd direction. Unplanned but filled with opportunities, which hopefully will bear fruit in 2015. My word is Empower – both myself and those around me 🙂

    Have a wonderful and LOVE filled New Year!

  4. My word for 2015 is Inspiration. I want to turn the microscope from me where I seek to be celebrated and not tolerated, but I wish to celebrate others and their success.

  5. What an inspirational list of words. Thanks for including mine. However, after reading this list, I see several others that may be just as important. Gratitude, simplify, focus, and of course, love. So glad you came up with this, Debra. Hope you make it an annual tradition!

  6. My word for 2015 is a rather unusual one – SHIFT. This year I’m all about making small changes (shifts) in attitude and actions to improve my life. Here’s to a great year!

  7. Love it Debra! My girls and I create dream boards every year on New Year’s Eve night and each is centered around a word theme. The one that chose me is Extraordinary! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your great posts and continuing to share them in 2015. Happy New Year, my friend 🙂

  8. Hi Debra. My word this year is Success (all alphabets in capital) in all areas of my life, work and anything that has meaning for me. I’ve done quite a few of the others. I know what I want and I am going for it. Virtual hugs!

  9. My 2015 word is grace, my mantra – put my mask on first – never look out and find the hard side, find the blessings, the reason, the jouney, believe it,

  10. What a great idea Debra! Positive reading 🙂
