Last week, I wrote why the word joy fits my business plan. Striving for joy is wonderful. There needs to be more than just joy in my life. With just joy how will I live a purpose-filled life? Striving only for joy would leave me living on a warm beach, and only having enough to just survive. Lying on the beach sipping Bahama Mamas for the rest of my life might sound like a good idea in my imagination. In reality, I have a need for a sense of fulfillment. A desire for expansion keeps living a life of joy grounded, realistic and purposeful.
The desire for expansion keeps my life moving forward ensuring that my life never stagnates into mediocrity. In my research, I have come to the conclusion that I am in one of two states. I am in either a state of contraction or a state of expansion. I am in a state of dying or a state of growth.
When I talk about my desire to live a life full of joy, people have said, “If I am happy all of the time, I will not get anything accomplished.” My desire to live a life of expansion and to constantly grow will insure that I will not become stagnate. It is possible to make great accomplishments in this world while living a life of joy.
There are five types of expansion that are very important in my life.
Expansion of the mind
Expansion of life
Over the next few weeks, I will explain each type of expansion in detail and show ways that you can use each type to bring more joy into your life.
It is my vision to facilitate a co-creating environment where we will add more expansion to your life. With more expansion in your life, you will constantly be in a state of growth. With joy, you will be proud of your accomplishments and be a wonderful example for the people around you.
