Secret To Success: Finding Your Joy in the Unexpected

Thursday, November 19th, 2020 11:30 am to 1:30 pm


Have you ever looked at a photo on social media and caught yourself thinking, “Of course she’s smiling, she has a perfect life?” It’s natural to associate joy with the absence of problems. It’s expected that we will feel happy when all is right with the world… when our loved ones are doing well, we have found success, or our skinny jeans fit just right: YAY! But what about when life isn’t perfect… when winter seems to last forever and the freedom of outdoor exercise seems so far away, road construction brings I-94 to a screeching halt for another day, or the checkout lines go to the back of the store 2 weeks before the holidays and you still don’t know what to buy Uncle Ed? Where is happiness then? Is it possible to find joy in the unexpected, when the circumstances pretty much stink? In this upbeat and laughter-filled presentation, assess the differences and similarities between happiness and joy and allow your new-found knowledge to change the way you do life.

Attendees will learn:

1) Consider how they personally define happiness and joy, discuss whether or not there is a difference, and find out why it matters

2) Evaluate the balance in their lives between things that bring a positive result on a superficial basis and things that have a deeper, richer impact in the long term

3) List what actually contributes joy to their lives utilizing a fun take-home card, with encouragement to consider how often they are incorporating it once the workshop ends and real life rolls on

4) Engage in a personal story to discover how to apply personal joys on their card to situations that are less than desirable and increase their chances of an unexpectedly positive end result
