The 8 Key Elements for JOYFUL Living


The 8 Key Elements for JOYFUL Living

There is something so refreshing wonderful about the start of a new year.  The slate is wiped clean so to speak, and all those ideas, dreams and opportunities that eluded you in 2013 are now back on the table again as possibilities.

But the question is, how can you stay on track in 2014 and bring your inner-most desires to fruition ?   Lets face it, it is easy to get distracted, whether it is time, money, family commitments, self-doubt or the negative opinions of others that throw you off track… and before you know it another 12 months have passed you by.

joyfullFor me, the secret to achieving dreams is focusing on JOY.   The word JOY is derived from the latin word ‘gaudere’ which means ‘rejoice’ and it also has a relationship to the French word ‘joie’ or ‘joie de vivre’ which means hearty & carefree enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit.

So putting this together, when you focus on joyful living, you are choosing to live life through the heart (hearty), you transcend your worries (carefree) and you experience the ecstasy (exultation) of spirit.  This is what living JOY-FULLY is all about.  Doesn’t this then seem like the perfect formula for living the life of your dreams ?

However, the question now is… how do you focus on bringing or being JOY in your life ?
Below I have detailed my personal Top 8 Key Elements for Living a JOY-FULL Life.

Also, please do keep reading further down the page for a number of free tools and resources to help you do just that, and make 2014 the year that you really start living !

The 8 Key Elements for JOY-FULL Living

1. Focus on your Passion

Approach that idea, dream or opportunity for 2014 from your place of passion.  Passion is that place within you that knows no boundaries… it is committed, eager and the ultimate motivator.   Through passion, you are not inhibited by your perceived short-comings as the desire to experience orgasmic JOY-FULL states of being is no match for the frigid limitations of the fear of the ego.

Whenever you get lost and forget your passion, sit in quiet meditation, away from all of your life distractions… and focus on that seeding moment when the idea/vision for 2014 came into your heart-n-soul…  and re-remember at that moment the passion you felt, the intense desire you then felt to take inspired action and the ecstasy of JOY felt within every level of your being !

2. Ditch it, then ditch some more

In order to birth that passion through you, like it or not it is time to clean out your closet of old habits, beliefs and limiting behaviours.   Hoarding will only impede and seek to bulldoze your passions before you have even taken the first step! To bring your golden desire for 2014 into fruition, it is time to cleanse your life of the OLD stuff and make way for the new.

If your big stumbling block is letting go of old beliefs, low self-esteem or confidence, vows of poverty etc… then please keep reading below for a number of free tools & self study courses to finally transcend all that OLD stuff for good !

3. Clear your head

Whilst we are on the subject of ‘ditch it’, this also includes needless mind chatter.  We think thousands of thoughts in any one day and the large majority of these thoughts stem from the ego playing out worrying scenarious and fear based visions that really have no relevance to the matter at hand.

STOP, MEDITATE and clear the mind-heart connection of fear… focus on your PASSION in point 1. and make decisions from your heart-n-soul.  Also, check out my free ‘Heart Meditation’ video/audio below to help keep you on track each day.

4. Transcend the need to please

Remember, this is your dream for 2014, it is not the dream of others… so don’t get perturbed when naysayers try to squish your passion.   It may be well meaning family, friends or co-workers trying to ‘save’ you from making a mistake, but only YOU know the feeling of the passion within and only YOU know what it will take to live your live from a place of JOY.

You will never be able to make everyone happy and how boring life would be if everyone lived in agreement with everyone else every second of the day.  I personally don’t want to live in a monotone world.. give me the full spectrum of colours any day.. so together as a collective humanity we have the full colour set to create a masterpiece that is Earth.

5. Attract a new crowd

As you start to live your life through JOY by engaging your passions and taking off your ‘people pleaser’ cap, you may find that friends and associates start to drop off your radar.  Whether it is jealously as a result of ‘tall poppy syndrome’, you make people uncomfortable through change, or others just don’t like the new improved you… you may find your so-called friends dropping away like flies.

However, LIKE attracts LIKE, and a whole new crowd of souls will begin to shine brightly in your life… inspiring & engaging you to go for it and live your dreams.  You will also find, the ones that stay in your life are the ones that LOVE you for YOU, your Soul Essence… they couldn’t be more happy for your impassioned & JOY-FULL approach to life.

6. Forgiveness & Self-Responsibility

Sometimes, as souls having this human experience we can be our own worst critics.  Our self-talk can be so harsh, we would never even dream of speaking to others with such callous disregard and derogatory tones.   Or alternatively, if our plans aren’t coming together as envisioned, it can be enticing to blame others for our ‘failures’ and reason away why the dream was doomed to failure from the beginning.

My advice, get off the pedestal of righteousness and not see every experience as being ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ but rather just an experience of learning.   Forgive yourself, forgive others, learn from all experiences and alter your plans accordingly.  This is JOY-FULL living, moving beyond victim-hood and engaging in Soul Essence experiences of life.  

7. Never Give Up

So you have followed your passion, taken those first steps, you have ‘ditched’, you have attracted a new ‘crowd’ and you have even gone hard on the ‘forgiveness’.  But unforeseen circumstances or events have thrown that proverbial ‘spanner in the works’ and foiled your plans.  It is tempting to give up, particularly if this is the 100th time in a row that it has happened.

Rather than throwing in the towel and taking your ‘bat n ball’ and going home, ‘failure’ (ooh that word is so harsh in the English language) represents an opportunity to review, refine, re-edit and re-evaluate your steps in order to realize your dream.   There are many roads (in fact infinite roads) to a destination and maybe, just maybe, the journey of ‘roads taken’ is much more valuable to your Souls evolution than the destination itself.

It is said that Thomas Edison ‘failed’ more than 1,000 times before he successfully invented the light bulb… so never give up, focus on your passion and allow new roads to guide your way.

8. It is Bigger than You

This passion, this vision, this dream… where did you think it really came from ?  Our universe is an infinitely expanding holographic field full of infinite potentials and possibilities.  Your Soul came to Earth for a reason, and you living your DREAM through PASSION is not only the most JOY-FULL thing that you can do on Earth but is the purpose of your Soul.

It really is that easy, it is the cultural imprinting of materialistic/consumeristic society that can make life so challenging.

Psychologists have shown that when you live your PASSIONATE DREAM, you experience the highest potentials of happiness known to man.  When you live your PASSIONATE DREAM you are in sacred service to something bigger than you, a collective intelligent field of consciousness.  JOY-FULLness thus becomes a natural state of beingness, as you are following your own inner-guidance, living an authentic truth and the Universe keeps mirroring back this JOY-FULLness ten fold.

I just love this quote by Pablo Picasso:   The meaning of life is to find your passionate gift & the purpose of life is to give it away (service).
