How to be JOYFUL in an instant

2013 - Celebrate JOY

Is it possible to be JOYFUL in an instant?

I say YES!

JOY is available at any time.  You can summon up this feeling whenever you need, even when you are feeling a bit down.

Feelings are just that, feelings.  It can change in a moment, if you want it to.  The key to remember is that you are not your feelings or emotions.  You have complete control of how you react or in other words, how you feel at any moment.

The key is choice.

What feelings do you want to want to choose in that moment?

You had a bad day at work…

Someone cuts you off while driving…

Things didn’t go as planned…

What do you do?  How do you choose to feel?

What I like to do to shift my focus and feelings towards JOY is to celebrate.  I find something to celebrate in each moment.

Bad day at work?  Ok, what is one accomplishment from the day?

Someone cuts me off while driving?  Ok, no one got hurt and we are all alive!

Things didn’t go as planned? Ok, what things did go according to plan?

Get the picture?

In this weeks episode of Simple Tips to bring JOY to your Life & Business, I share why you should celebrate to bring instant JOY to your life!



Because it’s all a mental shift in your mind.  You can go from a negative situation and feeling crummy to feeling JOYFUL and celebrating is a great way to help you do this.

Celebrate every day and even writing down your accomplishments goes a long way.

Pretty soon when S**T happens in your life, you automatically start shifting your focus towards the good instead of dwelling on the S**T.

And don’t forget to celebrate every once in a while with a reward for yourself.  You deserve it!

As Oprah once said, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” (you can tweet this).  I’d also like to add…the more you celebrate, they more JOY there is in your life!

So let me know how you plan on celebrating this week by leaving a comment below!
