Hello my soulful friend,

Many years ago, I learned about our Reticular Activating System (RAS). Stay with me here! This part of our brains keeps us from going crazy. It's a sifter, a sorter, and a built-in matchmaker that lives in your head and matches your thoughts.

We have about 70,000 thoughts a day, and 90% of them are negative! Whoa!! That means 60,000 thoughts per day are the opposite of all those mantras you have been saying once a day!

When you spend most of your day thinking, "I want…" 
you're telling your brain you don't have it.
So, how do we shift our brain into believing we already have what we want?
You become a proactive thinker.

Most of us think by default. Our brain loves to solve problems, so let's use this week's Dose of JOY and our JOLT to ask proactive questions.

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

I want more money
I want to feel healthy
I want more energy
I want all my bills paid in full
I want more clients
I want, I want, I want (you fill in the blank)
Ugh, that...

How to be grateful in the midst…

Hello beautiful soul,

Being grateful when the world has such sad and cruel things going on could be difficult for most. The beauty of choice is that we can choose to drum up something we are grateful for no matter what is happening in our lives.

Let's dive right into the reading of our JOLT 

(Joyfully Overcoming Limited Thinking) to feel good NOW.

 Because, after all, this moment is all we truly are guaranteed! 

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

Sometimes, I feel sad
Sometimes, I don't feel like working
Sometimes, I don't feel like acting like I'm happy
Sometimes, I don't feel grateful for what is going on around me
Sometimes, it doesn't feel right to be happy when others are not
Sometimes, I feel like I'm not a good person if I'm happy amid sadness
I do know whatever feeling I'm giving out, I will get more of it back
I do know that my gratefulness is the thing that will shift my day
Finding something to be grateful for or have gratitude...

Good morning, Beautiful!

How many times a day do you say or hear others say, "I'm so busy!"? A few years ago, one of my mentors shared that Mark Cuban declared that "busy" is the new stupid.

Yikes! Who wants to be called stupid??? It was then I decided to remove that word from my vocabulary — for - ever!

Let me share what I replaced it with, and please let me know how it feels when YOU replace the dirty four-letter word that starts with "B." 

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

I'm SO busy; how will I get it all done
I'm SO busy; there is never enough time in my day
I'm SO busy; I'm feeling stretched in a million different directions 
I'm SO exhausted
Even just saying, "I'm SO busy" feels exhausting
If busy is the new stupid, then I will choose a new thought
If busy feels exhausting, then what will feel expansive 
Abundantly blessed
I am abundantly blessed
My days are full of abundance
I am blessed to have so much I want to accomplish 
I am blessed with so many people and...

Hi Beautiful!

Is it difficult to let something go when it has profoundly impacted you? When someone did or said something to me that was hurtful or painful, I would use any opportunity to tell everyone and anyone who would listen. For me and, I'm sure, for the poor souls who were probably sorry they asked how I was!!

That * Was * Exhausting *

Now, after years of practice, I do a pattern interrupt. 

The mastery of being aware of what I was doing and saying, then nipping it in the bud before The Law of Attraction had a chance to grab hold of it and give me more of what I did not want! (Yep, the LOA doesn't give a hoot if what you are saying is positive or negative.)

Let me show you how to do a pattern interrupt and turn it around before it spirals in the wrong direction.

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

Wow, I can't believe she/he/they said that to me.
I can't get it out of my mind.
I keep replaying that hurtful situation (insert yours).
I keep hearing those words.
I have to get it off...

YaY, Beautiful Soul!

One year ago, I launched my first Weekly Dose of JOY and started with one subscriber! Today, we have over 100, and I'm proud to say I am not just adding everyone I know to this list - you either subscribed or are in my private Facebook Group - that's it!

Bringing you your WDOJ (Weekly Dose of Joy or Julie lol) with a short, to-the-point JOLT (a positive rant to help you Joyfully Overcome Limited Thinking) brings me much JOY!

As you are reading this, I am at the airport in my hometown of Buffalo, NY – We went back for a visit, and it was the first since 2017!! 

My cup and my belly are full!  

Before we went back east, we had a beach day at a friend's beach house in Malibu – the weather was so warm and beautiful – It was so nice to unplug and enjoy each other's company. While I was there, my assistant texted me to say another new member joined my networking community –helping me hit a "goal" — that's how it's supposed...

Happy Fall Beautiful,

I'm a little sad to see summer end. Do you have some regrets like I do? I didn't go to the beach as much as I would have liked to, didn't spend much time out in our backyard (lots of annoying mosquitoes), didn't get together with friends who usually have us over to swim, blah blah blah.

As much as I love a good Pumpkin Spice Latte and warm, cozy sweaters, I'm still going through my summer wardrobe and realizing there were so many pieces I did not wear! 
(I should have added that to my complaint list above, lol).

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

If you're new here, we start with our "negative thought" or "limited belief thinking" by acknowledging how we are feeling (we don't want to suppress or bury our feelings). Then we turn it around to begin to feel better, and sometimes it takes a few reads to get us on the right path to calm & joy!

Read it out loud with me!

I'm feeling a little sad about the end of summer
I love the warm summer days and the blue skies...

Good glorious morning!

Do you like to read? When I was young, I would read romance novels, and then I went on to read mysteries. I used to read for entertainment. Now, I read to learn and to improve my life, and I hope to improve the lives of others around me.

"Habits are the compound interest of self-improvement." ~ James Clear

In the book "Atomic Habits," James Clear points out that to make our lives better, much of it depends on the habits we have formed.

Often, you don't need to make massive changes in your habits, but it could take as little as a 1% improvement to create a more significant difference over time. (Remember last week I shared that my word for September is Simplify?) 

Let's dive right into this Week's Dose of JOY with a

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

I like knowing that I have total control over my thoughts.
I like knowing I'm in charge of my thoughts.
I know sometimes a negative thought comes through.
I like how quickly I can catch it before it grabs hold...

Hi there, beautiful soul!

Each month, I pick a word to focus on. September is Simplify! 

Each year, I choose a word to cultivate and grow with, and I already know that in 2024, I will continue to use Simplify! 

I teach this concept of choosing a word as a mindset goal 

for my clients to focus on and live with this intention for a year. They have all shared that this simple concept of how to be a receiver of more goodness, flow, ease & joy in their business, and life has allowed them to have an awareness that has fundamentally 

helped them to grow! 

You know I am also a student of this~ consistently applying what I learn and teach. After all, if you ingest information and not put it into action, it's merely entertainment.

Let's get into the flow with this week's 

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

Sometimes, I feel so confused
There is so much information coming at me
Emails, text messages, events, social media, OH MY!
When I get confused, I shut down

Hello, Beautiful!

Abundance flows effortlessly into my life in multiple ways!

I used to be a “do-er”. (OK, I still am!) Always having to be doing something! My mother used to say to me as a kid, “Can’t you just sit still?” I admit, I’m OK with it! I like to feel productive, AND I like to relax!  

 

(If you’re new to [JJJ], Julie’s Joyful Jolt~ JOLT is an acronym for 

Joyfully Overcoming Limited Thinking)

This JOLT is for YOU if you’re like me!!  

I know I should be taking today to relax
I know that most people love to have a day off from work
I know that many people are enjoying their day with friends
I know that it’s okay to take time off and unwind
I know that I don’t have to be “doing” to be abundant
I like saying, “Abundance flows effortlessly into my life in multiple ways!”
I like that I don’t have to be “making things happen” to be in the flow
I...

Good morning my soulful friend!

Was that a squirrel? If you are like most people, our days are full of distractions. Notifications of emails, text alerts, people popping into your office to ask a question. How do we get anything done, let alone concentrate and focus?

Just in time, your Weekly Dose of Joy appears in your inbox!

Let's take time to refresh our souls. You can meditate quickly, grab your Bible, read some scripture, and quietly ask your Inner Guidance to give you patience and peace. 

Start with a few deep, cleansing breaths…

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

Some days are so stressful
I have so much to do
I keep getting interrupted
I have so many distractions
How will I get anything done
I'll never finish this project
Take a deep breath
Take a few deep breaths
Maybe I should walk away for a bit
Close my computer and turn off my phone
YES! That is what I will do!
Just for 15 minutes
I know it will be refreshing
I know when I come back to it, I will feel more relaxed
Everything...

Hi there beautiful soul!

Is summer winding down? Well, if you have school-age kids, it is! I remember being a little sad when my kids went back to school. Summer went by so fast, never getting in all we wanted to do!

Have you been watching my short videos of the  "Empowered Entrepreneurial Masterclass Series" in my private Facebook GroupI am sharing ways to set up your day, create a life you love and slow down to speed up your results. This week I share Tools to Overcome Overwhelm. Tune in tomorrow at 12 PST live or watch the recording. 

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

This week's JOLT is about slowing down to speed up your results. We do this by acknowledging your feelings (not bypassing them) and creating a positive shift in your thoughts & your actions.

Let's go!!

Some days I feel exhausted.

Some days I just want to wave a magic wand to get my results.

Some days just drag on, and I don't see any progress.

I could take a nap (but I just...

Good morning, beautiful!

One of my core values is "FUN." It's a must in my life! What values do you operate your life and business around? 

This week I will deliver you a JOLT keeping FUN in mind when you set out to tackle your "to-do" list, make a phone call that may be a little intimidating, or take action when you’re not feeling it!

Here you go!

[JJJ - Julie's Joyful JOLT]

What would make this task fun?
What could I do to set myself up for success?
What would feel easy and more enjoyable?
Why don't I call someone who lifts me up?
Why don't I play some upbeat music and dance?
Why don't I go outside and take a *joybreak
That's what I'm going to do!
I'm going to go outside for a quick walk, then work.
I'm going to get some good energy flowing, then make those calls.
I know I will have better results when I put my feelings first. 
I'm glad I took time out to set up my energy flow.
I'm glad I took a moment to feel good first and then took action.
I'm glad I didn't give myself a...
