CONQUER: verb \ˈkäŋ-kər\ to gain control of (a problem or difficulty) through great effort. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
I thought I would introduce one word that we could be reminded of to embody in our mind and presence. A simple word, defined and empowered by us, in our everyday choices and decisions. For the first one, to kick start 2014, I chose CONQUER. A word I don’t think we hear enough. So this year, let’s make it our year to conquer something, small or big, but conquer it in the Smart is Sexy way.
2014 is chalk full of unknown moments, and how will we navigate them? Will it be by avoiding them, or by conquering them!? We cannot control another person’s actions or choices, so the best we can do and be, begins with ourselves. Let’s start the day with the word Conquer in our thoughts and lets end the day with the word Conquer in our dreams. By doing so we can experience both fear and excitement for the unknown, because what we don’t know won’t scare us. The Future is ridiculously scary, don’t get me wrong….but that is why we have to take it in small increments, maybe month by month in the beginning. And we can do it together, Smart is Sexy only works when we all believe in it…even a little bit. Conquering something, a fear, a bad relationship, a new move, only works if you believe in it first. This year we shall make it be the year of being ready to conquer the unknown, overcoming the obstacles and drowning the negative noise to find out what you are truly capable of.
So, a few of you have asked me, what’s my New Year’s Resolution? Here is to a year with plenty of unknowns, obstacles, shadows and light, but most of all — making smart moves, feeling confident and sexy in our own skin and conquering our goals and the negativity that stand in the way of them. Conquer it.
This is the year to Conquer.
Smart is Sexy.
