Transcript of "Creating more joy in life"

  1. 1. Create More Joy in Your Life Avinoam Lerner www.AvinoamLerner.com
  2. 2. What is Joy? The emo'on of great delight or happiness excited by something excep'onally good or sa'sfying; exhilara'on of spirits; keen pleasure; ela'on or felicity. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  3. 3. Joy is different from Happiness Joy comes from the inner-­‐self of a person… it’s what you feel when you connect with the source of life within you. Happiness is the state of being happy. It may be caused by good fortune and various other pleasures. Happiness is a result of something that is outside of you, therefore depends on circumstance and may be momentary. www.AvinoamLerner.com

  7. 7. Seeing the Whole Picture www.AvinoamLerner.com
  8. 8. Obstacles Blocking Your Joy Percep8on: Life is hard; dangerous and painful. Self-­‐Limi8ng Beliefs: I am not __ enough! I can’t __! An8cipa8on of the Future/ Worry About the Past: Past failures = future failures. Rigidity / Control: SeGng goals is posi've. Forcing an outcome is stressful and limi'ng. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  9. 9. Obstacles Blocking Your Joy Resentment: Resentment is toxic as it keeps us separate and disconnected not only from other people, but also from the deeper part of ourselves. Judging Ourselves and Others: By cri'cizing or measuring ourselves and others against some standard, we limit our experience of joy. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  10. 10. The Mind-Body Connection Emo'onal health and physical well-­‐being are in'mately connected. Learning how to be joyful can enhance our overall health greatly. Joyful people are oQen more healthy, both physically and mentally, they value strong posi've rela'onships, and they lead a more stable life. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  11. 11. Moving Toward More Joy. Make decisions that support joy: Feeling good and increasing your level of joy is something that you allow or do not allow. Take responsibility for your life and rela'onships. Take 8me to appreciate life: contemplate nature, focus on your freedom, appreciate what works in your life. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  12. 12. Moving Toward More Joy. Purpose and Meaning: Get involved with something greater than yourself. Cul8vate the aJtudes of joy: Choose to smile when you go to sleep and when you wake up in the morning. Note 3 posi've things that happened for you today. Immerse yourself in gra'tude. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  13. 13. Keep on Moving. It’s all within you - Stop looking for external things to provide happiness. Joy is an emotion that arises from within us and is not affected by the things that happen to us. Joy expands - as you focus on what is personally meaningful and wonderful, more of it will come. Be the Observer. Step back and look at the bigger picture. Observe your thoughts, feelings, and actions without being identified with them. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  14. 14. Never Look Back. Take steps towards what you truly value -­‐ Pursue your dreams and avoid regret. Joy is a choice, not a result. Do not mistake intensity for meaning, and confuse the no'on of "success" with fulfillment. Resilience leads to greater joy – Resilience is the ability to bounce back from bad experiences without dwelling on them. Resilient people view failure as a learning experience. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  15. 15. Food for Thoughts. Joy is Now, Not Later. Joy is the delight you experience when you think self-­‐suppor've thoughts and take self-­‐empowering ac'ons to create success for yourself. www.AvinoamLerner.com
  16. 16. Food for Thoughts. Permission to Feel Good. Make a conscious decision that you want to feel good in your life. Deciding to feel good builds new self-­‐ suppor'ng beliefs inside of you. Those new beliefs state, "I exist, I can have what I want, I am supported, I'm good enough, and it is important for me to feel good." www.AvinoamLerner.com
  17. 17. Create More Joy in Your Daily Life • Do more of what you love and enjoy. • Find out what others need, and commit some 'me to giving it -­‐ be pro-­‐ac've and make a real difference in a loved one’s life or in a charity you support. • Give what you want to receive – We can't give love and share joy without experiencing them ourselves. In that way giving and receiving are one. www.AvinoamLerner.com
