"The only true measure of success is 

the amount of joy we are feeling."



Whether we're striving to build our business, get promoted or get a new job, raise a family or find our life partner, we all ultimately want one thing: to be happy. And once we set that intention to welcome joy into our lives, we naturally attract the people, opportunities and resources that bring us more joy.


Joy FactorThat's what's so appealing to me about "The Joy Factor Recipe Book: A Common Sense Approach to a Delicious Life," by Wendy Watkins, CPCC, PCC. 


Wendy's clever food analogies throughout the book remind us to practice self care by Feeding Yourself First, savor the Flavor Enhancers of nature to engage all your senses, and Follow Your Passionate Breadcrumbs by pursuing your purpose.


When Wendy asked me to contribute to her book my "recipe for joy," I contemplated what that might be. Should I share my practice of staying in the moment, releasing the clutter that no longer serves me or writing in a gratitude journal? No, instead I chose a list-making exercise that I do at least once a year and encourage my clients and colleagues to do as well. I call it Reflect on Success and these are the five simple steps to write your Success List:


  1. Number your page from 1-20 on the left margin. (To keep you going after you've written the first ten or so.)
  2. Consider what you're most proud of this year, including family and friends, health, work, finances and fun.
  3. Then, go deeper to the lessons learned and gifts that come from disappointments and perceived setbacks.
  4. Once your list is complete, share it with those you trust and encourage them to do the same.
  5. Celebrate all you've accomplished.


When we achieve a goal, we often quickly shift to the next thing on our to-do list without reflecting on our success. Taking the time to do this exercise will not only boost your joy factor but also build your confidence. 


How do you welcome more joy into your life? Share your wisdom on my Facebook Page or reply back to me. I love hearing from you!
