Did you have a theme this past year? Will you have one for next year? Themes can make your life fun and focused. 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 have a theme for the year (or month, or quarter), you will be pushed forward towards your goals automatically. Why? Your theme will help you keep focused by providing you with a starting point during your decision making process. Creating a theme is the first of 24 steps towards creating a strong "Personal Foundation," a program that many coaches offer their clients.

A life theme can be a few words... or even one word to describe what you overall want to accomplish. What's important is that it inspires you. 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.
With the holidays just around the corner, now is a great time to create your theme for next year.
