(Great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)
“Does what I’m doing bring more joy into the world?”
Coaching Point: Is bringing more joy into the world even part of your thoughts? It wasn’t for me.
For years I was just scrambling, trying to keep up and get ahead. I would have told you I wasn’t hurting anyone else, at least not consciously. But that was a dodge. If joy was even a focus for me, I was only trying to bring joy to me and mine.
And then I woke up.
I noticed when I focused on just creating joy for me, it happened, but faded fast. When I experienced joy which lasted, it always included others. Always.
My story doesn’t matter. I’m just the punching dummy in this S3MC. What really matters is for you to ask this Great Question and notice the response you hear and feel from within.
Then ask it again tomorrow. And the day after.
You may find, as I have, that shifting your focus to bringing more joy to the world will magnify the joy you experience.
