‘Intuition’ is the label we put on the group of signals our unconscious mind sends to help guide us in the right direction. One of those signals is ‘joy’, and it defines the pathway to our greatness. This is why Create Joy is one of the four points of the Go-Getter’s Compass.

Journal Away…

Step 1: Tune into the feeling of joy

Think of a moment in your life that was truly joyful to you. It would be a moment when you experienced sustained elation and to this day, every time you think of that moment that same feeling of deep-seated elation arises.

As you think of that moment, what are the sensations that happen in your body?

Where does it start? Then where does it flow to?

Does it start subtle and then become strong?

How does it feel different to satisfaction, happiness, contentment or other similar emotions?

Write your thoughts and answers in your journal.

Step 2: 40 Moments of Joy

Now that you have the feeling of joy present and clear in your body. What are other moments when you have experienced joy?

Aim to list 40. They can be from any stage in your life. Big or small moments. Be specific.

For example:

  1. Riding horses with the kids last Sunday
  2. Bushwalking in the national park
  3. Drawing a picture of my cat
  4. Seeing flowers bloom in my garden
  5. Hearing the crunch of fresh vegetables as I eat them

This activity might take a day or two to complete. Memories will come to you throughout the day.
