My One Word: FOCUS
I started using One Word because it was introduced to me by my basketball coach. After reading the book I realized I needed to pick I word that I would have to work towards and live up to, not just a word that describes me. I couldn’t decide between the words confidence and focus and I decided to pray more to see what I would find. I’m not one to look into things I let them come to me. My coach was pushing for me to pick the word confidence but I just couldn’t decide because I felt that wasn’t enough. My coach then had me read the book Training Day (phenomenal book might I add) and it talked about an athletes mentality and how they needed to FOCUS. I knew right then and there that focus was my word. Not only did it apply in basketball, it applied in everyday life including school, friends, and even God. Plus, the word I picked would be one I would have to focus on all year so what better word to choose than that.
