Increasing number of people living in joy has a positive impact on our workplaces and our communities. One who invites joy into his or her life also invites greater wellness, fortune, and success. As joy increases in our business organizations, those organizations become healthier, wealthier, and more successful. And, as joy expands in our society, it will become a place more inclusive, productive, and peaceful. This joy is potent stuff.
Naming can be much like claiming. Think of a trait you would like to claim for yourself -- if not joy, then maybe health, wealth, success, happiness, peace, kindness, big, blue sky is limit. For today, call yourself, name yourself, that trait. Maybe I am health. Or I am kindness. Stand up tall and say, I am [your chosen name] at least once an hour today. Sing it in shower. Shout it with glee in park.
Write it down each hour, too. I am [your chosen name]. All throughout day, carry paper with your new name close to you. Grin when you think of it in your pocket or purse or under your belt.
Dont just write it on paper. Use your finger to trace it in air or in a pond. Write it in your food with your fork. Form your name with flowers or spell it out with jellybeans. Let today be permeated by your new name. The trait you claimed will become yours.
What will you name yourself today?
