People starting coaching businesses need to choose a name for their new business. This is something that causes some stress as a name needs to stand out and be a great representation and vision for the coaching practice.
When I sat down and began thinking of a name and URL for my business, the first thing that came to mind was Joyful Expansion. After some thinking, I decided that Joyous Expansion was actually a great fit.. The only negative I could think of was that the URL might be read as joyou sex pansion. Since joyou and pansion are not real words, I felt it was safe and I registered the domain and trademarked the name for business. I was lucky to have my first choice to be available.
In October, I took a class called Living Your Vision by Invite Change. In this class, I developed both a purpose and vision statement for how I want to live my life. It is a very powerful to read both of these statements that fits me perfectly. It gives me something to strive for and a way to live my life. One thing that both my vision and purpose statement have in common is the word joy. The word joy is one of the most important words in my life. Every morning I make the decision that this day is a day I am going to live with joy.
There are many emotions and each one can be learned from and has great value I have learned a lot from sadness, anger, worry, resentment, jealousy and fear. The main thing I learn from the non-joy emotions are ways to bring myself back into joy. Learning from each of those emotions is important, so I can be in a place constant joy. Being in joy does not mean being a person like Kenneth from 30 Rock. It is not being simple, but a way of being from the inside. There are many people who are all smiles and full of the Pollyanna attitude on the outside, and are sad and miserable on the inside. I am not about applying a fresh coat of joy paint on my sad house. I am about fixing the foundation to one of joy, building a house of purpose and decorating the house with conscious intentions.
