I approach people from my coaching perspective Joyency: How to Add to Your Wellness Bank Account. What is that name Joyency all about? It is a combination of joy and currency. Far too often, we use fear, anger, jealousy, and self-doubt, just to name a few, as our currency. Use compassion, grit, positivity, abundance, collaboration, and confidence as your currency. We are taught time after time that we should collaborate, but only if we "get something from it." That there is not enough for everyone and that you must ensure you get yours first.
Merriam-Webster defines collaboration as
to work jointly with others or together especially in an intellectual endeavor An international team of scientists collaborated on the study.
to cooperate with or willingly assist an enemy of one's country and especially an occupying force suspected of collaborating with the enemy
to cooperate with an agency or instrumentality with which one is not immediately connected The two schools collaborate on library services
Did you notice that it doesn't say if you get something from the collaboration? We need to start to use our energy to help more people in need; we need to collaborate more. Sometimes the person in need of collaboration is ourselves; we are often at odds with our own needs, values, and energy. That is why I believe so much in depositing into our wellness bank account with positive experiences. Living a joy-filled life does not preclude you from pain but allows you to live a balanced life. .
