Delighted to share, Creating Your 2015 Manifesto, by the awesome Jone Bosworth, CEO of inCourage Leading!



One of the best ways to build strength and focus in 2015 is to create a manifesto.

A manifesto is like a compass not a map. It’s a declaration of principles, beliefs and intentions. It’s a rallying cry: statements or images or even just one word that embodies what you stand for.

The example (above) is Mars Dorian’s work. A visual story-teller and online illustrator, Dorian brilliantly combines images and words into a manifesto that really packs a punch.

Because I want your manifesto to be something you print, post, and read every day as a reminder of what’s truly important to you, here are a few examples and how-to questions to get you energized as you create your unique manifesto.

Example Manifestos

Just Three Words: You, Your Loved Ones, Your Work

I also love how Chris Brogan creates his annual manifesto in just three words. Chris is the awesome author of books like Trust Agents and The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth, and he leads the Owner Media Group. (If you don’t know Chris, put getting to know him near the top of your priorities list this year! You’ll be very glad you did.)

Here’s how Chris Brogan picks his 3-word manifesto for the year:

Make the first word about yourself,
the second about your loved ones,
the third about your business.”

Questions to Create Your Manifesto


What do you believe / what drives you?
What do you NOT believe?
What were some of the biggest lessons you’ve learned last year?
What do you do consistently, even if you have to fight for it?
What’s one thing you’re great at and love; no matter what, you’ll do it?
What is one thing you’ll let go of or forgive yourself for?



One last awesome example from Mars Dorian (left). Create-Conquer-VISUAL-Manifesto1-728×1024

When we don’t know where we’re going we’ll end up someplace we don’t want to be.

Write your manifesto for 2015 and may it be the compass that guides your path in joy-and-success-filled ways!

May 2015 be your best year yet!
