What’s your theme for 2014?

Posted · 6 Comments

I had a friend ask me what 2013 was going to be ‘the year of’ for me and now I’m hooked. Rather than making resolutions I decide to have one focal point for that year, one characteristic I really want to work on. Last year it was influence; I wanted to be a person that made a difference in the world around me with actual influence rather than just adapting. If you ask me.. I feel pretty darn good about what I was able to do when my mind was set to it. 2013 was, to be honest, my favorite year of this God given life I’ve had so far and I have no doubt 2014 will be even better.

So let me ask you this: What’s your theme for 2014? What one characteristic are you choosing to improve this year above all others? Pretty exciting to think about, isn’t it!? To think that you could legitimately change something so much it’d impact the rest of your life.. man I love that.

This past year has been one I’ll never forget. We’ve gotten to be a part of some amazing events with folks like Vans, IMG, Intel, Audi, Aquafina, Verizon and the NHL. We acquired NCAA licenses for our home team(s), UofM and MSU, as well as the US Army. The highlight of it all? Meeting my childhood hero and having him sign the Straps we made for his event. Thank you MJ!


We saw ZOX expand more than I ever imagined it would, making tons of new friends from all over the globe. Canada, Mexico, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Brazil, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Russia and a bunch of others I’m sure I’m forgetting. It’s so cool to see people from all over the world come together because of their love for our little pieces of collectible art; I can’t say enough how thankful I am for each and every one of you.

On a personal side, this year has been epic as well. My little bros have taken on a tremendous amount of responsibility as we’ve grown and I’ve become the incredibly proud big bro. I also proposed to Kara on Christmas Eve at the beach in Malibu and got a ‘yes’ with some tears of joy. Man I feel like the luckiest guy on earth right now! :)


That’s about it for our new year updates. Drop me a line below and let me know what your theme will be for this year and how you plan on accomplishing it. I can tell you this – all three of the bros here at Zox are cheerin’ for ya.

Talk soon!

    My theme for this year would be “Change”. I’m currently a high school senior and in the fall I will be going to college somewhere. It will be a great change in my life for me. I’m a little scared but I think I can overcome that fear. It’s one of those moments where you have to take the initiative to press on the gas pedal and go forward with your life. Do something in your life that you would love to do.

    “BRAVE” Is what caught my eye to this post.

    That is also my word for 2014. I came to that epiphany right before New Years.
    Our family has endured some trying changes and growth. In 2012 my word was HOPE. In 2013 it was HEAL, and ironically in 2014 BRAVE. I am even getting a tattoo of a sweet lion on my arm and the letters BRAVE on the underside because I am so seriously passionate about the life changing things I am determined to seek out to the end. I started slow and am just gaining momentum.

    I realize this is a little late, but my theme for the year has to be dedication as well as devotion. I recently completed my junior year in college, and will begin my final year this fall as a college student at GVSU and I cannot be more excited. I am also as of the last year in the company of which I intend to apply my degree in and have a full time career in and through dedication and devotion I have both achieved these success, as well as will continue to progress into the beginning of life after college. I encourage everyone to pursue their goals as a living testament that they really can come true.

    I’d say my theme for the year is faith. I need to trust God more, put myself in His hands and stop trying to ‘do it’ under my own power. ‘Cause I’ve seen what ‘my own power’ looks like, and it looks like a 6-year-old trying to push a Silverado up Pike’s Peak single-handedly while the parking brake is on. Only He knows how well I’ll ultimately live out that theme, but that’s my goal! Not a resolution, but…a longing. God bless, guys, and your stuff is really cool. Considering that ‘church’ band you have there. I like, I like!

    My theme this year is ” Determination” because without it I will become another statistic for the U.S. and I refuse to be that. So with determination I will finish my associates degree do that I may go help deaf people in situations from their everyday lives to the emergency room.
