Laughing Your Way to Joy
One of the great secrets of life is this: If we are happy, we are 31% more productive, make 19% fewer mistakes and, if we are in sales, make 37% more sales. (Source: Shawn Achor in The Happiness Advantage)
Our minds are the great detractors from joy and happiness. It is when we allow our minds to take over and run the show that we are distracted from our joy.
It is our minds that worry. As we know, worry is not productive. Yet we fret about what might happen in the future. When we do so, we take ourselves out of the present moment where all our power is.
Also, when we fret about what happened in the past, about mistakes we made and opportunities we missed, we also are not living in the present moment.
Can fear and worry be eliminated if we find a way to live in the eternal “now?”
Why not? Here is a simple 3 Point Method to Get Into the “Now” anytime, anywhere.
1) Release the tension around the eyes: practice the martial arts “soft eyes.”
2) Practice the Inner Smile
3) Put your attention into the centre, just below the belly button.
It helps if you laugh a bunch first: So, here is How to Laugh Your Way to Joy:
Also: World Laughter Day is a great way to get into joy, access the “Now” and have a great time with friendly folks. In Victoria, we are celebrating at 11am Sunday May 4th. (this Sunday!) at Saxe Point Park. See you there.

The Inner Circle
You just might want to see more of these kinds of stories/anecdotes than the once a month Mastery Newsletter.
The “Inner Circle” explores a whole lot more subjects than I can fit into a monthly newsletter.
It is “ad hoc,” meaning it arrives in your inbox whenever I run across something, that could be once every 2 or 3 weeks.
It might also be a few times in a single day. As always, simple to unsubscribe if it gets to be too much.
TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE INNER CIRCLE: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “SUB INNER CIRCLE” in the subject line.
