Todays Words of Inspiration - Spread It and it will get you noticed!

Photo Credit: Sprinkles Cupcakes

I was feeling a bit cheeky today and I knew that title would get your attention! So what do you think I mean? C'mon you can be honest we are all amongst friends here, fess up! Hey, why are you blushing and giggling!

I am sure you all thought I meant Joy! It's not just what's for Christmas. It needs to be spread year round every single day.

(1) How would you want friends to fill in this blank about you? (Insert YOUR Name HERE) usually spreads:


(2) What about immediate Family, they say you'd spread:


(3) Now how would that blank be filled in by co-workers:


For me I think all three blanks would contain the word inspiration in there, how about you? Friends would even throw in laughter or joy, nieces and nephews would say cuddles and kisses.

But what would your blanks come back as? Are you sure?

You know how they say every Rose has its thorns? Try to avoid being the thorn at all costs, don't cause pain and drama today, use your bloom to spread a sweet fragrance.

You know they say 'Oh every office has one of those.' Don't be the office 'Downer' that bums everyone out, and slow downs the energy levels those around you!

When negative situations surround you and are trying to sneak up on you and rob you of joy, stop the negativity in it's tracks! Make sure you start your day with joy, big amounts of joy so much so, that you have to spread them out a bit at a time. You will make customers happier, your day will go easier, and you will find more reserves of energy at the end of the day than you've ever had before. No matter which end of the table you are on, say hello to someone today and fully listen to their response, and when you do, don't rattle off your pain list, or your drama list, or frustration list, spread some joy first, even before the sympahty or empahty, spread some joy. That joy is just light within you, that manifests to others in the way you opt to let it, with a warm hug, a charming smile, a wink, putting forward a warm hand and taking someone's cold hand into yours. It manifests with light kisses on the cheeks. With a genuine question, like How are you?

Because just like you always know who the office morale drainer is, you tend to know their polar opposite, the moral booster, who makes every thing run better, fixes problems before they can arise. Can be experiencing a day from hell and still manage a sincere smile and a 'have a nice day' for customers and colleagues. She is the one who everyone wants to do something special for on her birthday and is always surprised when you do. Not because she doesn't think she deserves it, but because she is so used to spreading light out towards others, that it genuinely touches her when she is on the receiving end of it.

She's JOY, and if you spread her around, it will get you noticed.

But she's a bit like a fairy, almost like Lady Luck, she lands ever so gently upon you and you must be sure you make yourself ready for her visit, by reducing stress and chaos from your mind, heart, and home, and making a big welcome sign so she knows you are happy she is there. Treat 'Joy' like a lady and soon you will both have each other smiling.

I wan't to be noticed and remembered for my joyous inspirations. For the light and laughter I bring into people's lives and I conversely also want to remember those who bring me joy and light. I want more 'joy' bringers in my inner circle!

(1) So how exactly does this inspire you? Two ways, begin by evaluating yourself, are you a joy bringer in the home? Do you spread your light and leave your atmosphere lighter and happier from your visit? or do you nitpick, judge, envy, seek flaws in others and diminish their sucess? Are you the friend called last all the time because no one is sure what mood you will be in today? Is it afterwork activity night?  Do you join in or bow out? 

If you can say No I would not be described this way, I'm just the opposite, I am the joy bringer, then congratulations! and skip ahead to part 2.

(2) If you can answer yes with assurance that you are always a joy bringer in every situation, then you must strive to live in joy in the most inspirational ways to help others to be joy givers too. Give joyously at work by doing your work graciously, joyously and with a light of purpose, being the team glue that keeps projects running smoothly and on time. Will it always be easy? Probably not, but your consistent joy, will be infectious once it's efficacy is witnessed by all. Joyous people tend to be increased! They tend to find just the favor that they required at just the right time.

I want to take active steps daily to walk, live and work joyously. I'm starting by making it my daily mediation today. And will refer to it when I am feeling pressured by deadlines, by less than joyous team members or even over stressed bosses. I will return to a center of joyful giving. Knowing that my Karma is sure. Knowing that when people come to me its because they know it is my pleasure to take care of the tasks at hand, effectively, efficiently and joyously.

Today I will spread it all over, and I know it will get me noticed!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will be joyous in mind, in heart, in all actions and in my deeds!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
