Joy is so vital!

Scientists describe joy as an intense momentary experience of positive emotion. Like all emotions, joy is created in our brain. In moments of joy the brain releases dopamine, the “joy hormone”. Joy makes us smile and wanting to jump up and down! It makes us feel elevated and excited.

When do you experience joyful moments? Would you agree, that joy often pops up unexpectedly? It seems to be something rather spontaneous. If that is the case: can we make joy happen?

Perfectionism.

It blocks us. It makes us slow and inefficient. It’s rooted in the fear of being judged by others and ultimately in the fear of inadequacy.

My business coach says: 100% is failure and 70% is success. I love this! I know I have to take this rule to heart to get rid of perfectionism.

Responsibility is key in everybody’s life and especially if you want to run your own business successfully.

Let’s say you are at point A at the moment and you want to get to a new level – let’s call it point B. If you are self-employed or running your own business, the only person that will get you from point A to point B is you! Sometimes it is easy to get into action and do the things we have to do. And sometimes it is hard, because, if point B is something really new and on a different level, we don’t know what that point B will be like. It is like going on a hiking trip without a map. Or swimming in the sea away from the shore. It scares us and we prefer to stay safely in our comfort zone. Sounds familiar? Weiterlesen
