The 2017 Word of the Year is …

Each year I select a word that resonates with the upcoming year. Often it is a word of what I feel will unfold: a word of what I want or feel will manifest, and most often it is a word for everyone!

In 2014 it was balance. In 2015 it was movement. And in 2016 it was visibility.

And for 2017 the word is …. fulfilled!!!!

I look for continuous signs and synchronicities in the last few weeks in the year to show what may come in the following year. And this word kept bonking me on the head. The final blow was when I was watching Tony Robbins in a live stream presentation from Las Vegas earlier in the month. He spoke about how we have a human need to grow to the next level, we instinctively want to improve the quality of our life, and we crave living life on our own terms. In doing this, we must master two skills: the science of achievement and the art of fulfillment.

In mastering the science of achievement, learn from high achievers and do what they do, become obsessed about what you want to achieve, take massive action and find effective ways of moving forward, and in doing this find and be in grace/God because as you acknowledge and appreciate where you are, the more that will show up to move you down your path.

Now in the art of fulfillment, this absolutely bonked me over the head. This is different for everyone, but it’s figuring out what fulfills you. Think about that? What fulfills you? Why do you spend the time the way that you do? Is it because you have to or because you want to?

It’s a very deep question and I really pondered. I do a lot, I have monster goals, I am constantly growing and learning, and I have lots of passion projects. Most people get dizzy when they see all that I do and all that I have planned. But in the end, what about all of that fulfills me?

Tony said, success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure. Fulfillment requires growth as a person while you contribute and give. It’s about trading expectations for appreciation and living in a beautiful state. It’s about being obsessed to find beauty in everything so that you live in a beautiful state of mind. This beautiful state sustains you even when things are not going your way. Because when you live from a beautiful state you are high energy and high peak performance. When you a frustrated, overwhelmed, worried, fearful, beating yourself up, you are in a suffering state.

Wow.

Too many people choose to suffer. So why not choose a beautiful state and find fulfillment every day?

So how does being fulfilled relate to you? I find that most people can generally be placed into two categories: (1) people who have goals, dreams, plan, take action and aim to be the best version of themselves that they can; and (2) people who go with the flow of life, who are content but secretly waiting for something better, but are not necessarily setting goals or taking steps towards what they want.

If you are a goal and dream-driven person, being fulfilled is finding out why you are goal and dream-driven, what makes you tick, work long hours, plan and strategize, work on intentions, affirmations, have vision boards all over the place, and work on being your best you every day? It can be exhausting, yet why does it feel rewarding?

If you are a go-with-the-flow-of-life person, finding fulfillment is in the introspection of looking at your life and deciding whether it’s what you want when you come to the end of your days. Will you look back and feel that it was the best life you could live?

Fulfillment is different for everyone. Without fulfillment, whatever we accomplish in life doesn’t matter. At the end of our life, no one ever wishes for one last conference call, staff meeting, email, cleaning the house, or being at the whim of someone else’s schedule.

So as we bid farewell to the crazy life-changing energy of 2016 (which was a 9 ending year in numerology) and welcome in the radical changes of 2017 (a 1 year of beginnings), I hope that you’ll spend some time to identify what fulfills you. It will be time well spent and could change how 2017 unfolds for you.

Give yourself radical permission to find what fulfills you and then put your time there in 2017!

Happy New Year to you … I send you my best wishes for a fulfilled year ahead!

Allie’s Favorite Things for 2017

This is my 5th year of sharing my Favorite Things! I love trying out  new products, programs, tools and techniques all year long to help us all live better  and well lives. And going through what I most loved is such a fun thing to do at the end of each year.

This year, I shortened my list from 31 to 12 items and posted them on my Facebook page for the Twelve Days of Christmas. All of my Favorite Things for 2017 are listed below! Please post a comment if you have tried one of these products and let me know how you like it!

Enjoy!

(P.S. Some of the links are affiliate links but rest assured that I would never ever recommend something without trying it personally, loving it and using it consistently)!


Allie’s Favorite Things #1: Young Living Gratitude essential oil

Gratitude has a frequency to it. When you get into that frequency, you see the best in everything and may find that the best comes back you. This is a beautiful blend of Frankincense, Myrrh, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and many other oils. This is one oil that I topically apply every morning. Because when you go through your day with Gratitude, you find even more to be grateful for.


Allie’s Favorite Things #2: The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

What does the first hour of your day look like? Do you hit the snooze button, wake up exhausted, watch negative news, check to see who’s complaining about what on social media, eat a processed “food” breakfast … then you’re setting your day up to be unproductive. If you struggle with having good habits to set your day on the right track, this is the book for you. Six simple steps that you can do for 1 minute, 5 minutes or 10 minutes each. Do this consistently every day for a month and you will work smarter not harder, have energy, and know how you should spend your days. It will set up a habit that will last you a life time!


Allie’s Favorite Things #3: Self Journal

We’re on a theme here. Have gratitude, have good daily morning habits, and now make sure that you write down clear goals and track your time. If you’re like most people (and I was like this), I wasted a lot of time on stuff that was not laser focused on my goals. The Self Journal has you set one monster goal and then get really clear on tasks you need to do everyday to achieve that goal. It has you track your day (every hour). I use colored pens (red = time waster) and you will be AMAZED at how much time you really have to go for that one goal that has been put off for far too long. Because do you really need to spend 2 hours a day catching up on Game of Thrones? This book is only for 90 days but it will get you in the habit of working smarter, not harder so that you finally reach those goals.


Allie’s Favorite Things #4: Young Living Slique Shake

Let’s keep with the theme and get you a good morning habit! If you’re too busy for a wholesome breakfast, this is easy peasy! It’s a complete meal replacement, high protein, packed with essential oils and it tastes like strawberries! It contains pea protein, quinoa, wolfberry, pumpkin seed protein, and alfalfa grass juice. I like to toss in a handful of frozen blueberries and mix it in my NutriBullet. Oh, and it supports healthy weight management!


Allie’s Favorite Things #5: Butterfly Oracle Cards

Who’s going through life changes? If you know how oracle cards work, you will love working with this deck. The photos of the butterflies are beautiful and the messages are spot on. I love this deck!


Allie’s Favorite Things #6: The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon

I devour books like a bag of organic cheese popcorn, and this was no exception. I love the message of this book …. 10 simple steps to make sure that you are surrounded by the right people and that you are the right person to lead into success. No matter what work you do, it would be rare that you do it alone. This heart-warming book details why the 10 Energy Rules are crucial to a successful and fulfilled work and life.


Allie’s Favorite Things #7: Doreen Virtue’s Fairyologist Certification Course

Are you intrigued about fairies? Have you studied them, feel a connection to them, yet know that there’s more to learn? This is an awesome class where you receive indepth information on fairies worldwide, how to identify them, work with them and give fairy readings. It’s a fun self-paced online course with videos from Doreen Virtue. When you become certified you can even be listed on her website as a Certified Fairyologist!


Allie’s Favorite Things #8: Young Living Agilease

Who’s got some joint health issues? Feeling stiff or creaky after exercise, yoga, shoveling snow, or when you first wake up? This is one of my favorite daily supplements. It’s great for anyone who may experience a natural, acute inflammation. What’s the special secret? Frankincense powder (that’s super unique), UC-II undenatured collagen (most supplements have denatured collagen), specially formulated proprietary essential oil blend of Wintergreen, Copaiba, Clove, and Northern Lights Black Spruce—oils that are known for their joint health benefits and much more.


Allie’s Favorite Things #9: DNA in the Sands of Time by J. Justice

All I can say is WOW about this book. If you are curious about the Akashic Records, read this! It’s a huge book packed with information. It was written 10 years ago but the information is very relevant to our world today. I had so many a-ha moments in this book and many freaked out moments as well. This is knowledge we must have.


Allie’s Favorite Things #10: Young Living Abundance essential oil

Abundance is not just about money (although that’s nice). It’s a mindset. So you can either have an abundant mindset or a poverty mindset. An abundant mindset means that you have a lot of something … relationships, health, ideas, projects, work, finances, you name it. If your mindset is negative, you’ll have a lot of negative things in all areas of life. But if it’s positive, you’ll have a lot of positive things in those areas. This oil has a frequency to it that can put you in that positive abundant mindset. I apply this to the bottom of my feet everyday so that I’m stepping through my day with an abundant mindset. Sara wears it in a diffuser around her neck (and I secretly think she pours it over her head). Now seriously … would you rather have a poverty mindset or an abundant mindset? Get this oil and you’ll see what I mean.


Allie’s Favorite Things #11: Everyone Communicates, Few Connect by John Maxwell

With the surge in social media, we may think that we’re more connected, but are we? No matter work you do, connecting with people is crucial. And while most people communicate, they don’t connect. When you connect, everything changes for the better. Another favorite book!


Allie’s Favorite Things #12: Keepers of the Light Oracle Cards

If you love oracle cards, this deck combines so many favorite angels, masters, goddesses, etc. The messages are powerful and are perfect as we prepare for 2017. Definitely a must have for the oracle card connoisseur!

I wish all of you a very Merry Holiday Season and an Amazing 2017 New Year!
