What brings you joy? You wouldn’t believe how many people aren’t quite sure. Many of us are busy and racing around during the day and don’t even feel we have time to focus on what brings us joy. The deal, though, is that it’s essential for your well-being. The more you embrace the things that bring you joy…the more you’ve harnessed the power to spread that joy to others!

Help Yourself FirstYou know how a flight attendant tells passengers before the flight that in the event of cabin pressure loss, “Secure your own oxygen mask first, before assisting others”? Same thing here. Identify what brings you joy. And then honor those things and start making them a part of your life, if you haven’t already.

It’s important to make sure that YOU are your number-one priority – in order to be of better service to the world. Harold Whitman hit it right-on when he said: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Ready?! Go here to download a great worksheet that will help you get you back in touch with what you love. Your well-being depends on it. 🙂

Enjoy! And cheers to following your joy.
