My Word of the Year 2022: Elevation



I considered different words as a potential word of the year for 2022 and then the word elevation came to me. I felt it intensely once it hit my spirit. I waited a few more days and received confirmation that it indeed was the right word for me. After I definitively selected the word, one day later I received an email suggesting elevation as my word for the year – more confirmation.

Word of the Year 2022: Elevation

Elevation is the next level in the continuous evolution of my life and business – upward movement, self-growth, and increase. Elevation as in continuing to uplevel my position.

Elevation as in promotion · upgrading · advancement · rise · upswing · growth · boom · boost · escalation · a height above

I am progressing from completion (2021) to elevation (2022). I am going above and beyond my effort in 2021 to reach my goals in 2022. Elevation steps:

  1. Be More Authentic – stop pretending
  2. Show Up Fully – stop hiding
  3. Set New Boundaries – stop conceding
  4. Go All In – stop waiting

Nourishment For The Elevation Journey:

  • You can only go as high as you believe you can.
  • If you want to soar you have to let go of the things that are weighing you down.
  • Reconnect with your highest self and start showing up as her.

I am committed to purpose, power, and prosperity this year!
