Jump Start Your Joy

Jump Start Your Joy is a podcast by Paula Jenkins, a life coach, project manager, joy enthusiast and podcast consultant living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Inspired by the quote “Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day (Henri Nouwen),” this lively show looks at the inspiration, intention, and action that lead to joy in the every day. The show is a mix of solocasts and interviews with entrepreneurs, rock stars, authors, actors, life coaches and other game changers. Whether choosing joy seems to be an improbably choice, or the most difficult one they’ve ever made, guests share how it has made a difference in their lives, the world, and other peoples lives. As a multi-passionate, Paula’s leverages a deep appreciation of Star Wars, self help books, religious studies, boy bands and 90s movies to create a show that has spunk, humor, and a lot of aha moments along the way.

This week on the show, let’s talk about some great ways to discover the right time to follow your dreams.

 

How to discover the right time to follow your dreams:

1. Have Patience
Sometimes, we think we are ready before we are.
What if, behind the scenes, the universe is making that path smooth for you?
What if there is something else you need to learn before you are ready for the next step?
Tune in to the podcast to hear a lot more on this.

2. Trust that the universe is looking out for you
I like to tell a story about my son, when he was 18 months old. He used to be obsessed with extension cords, wanting to chew on them if he found them in the house. We baby-proofed to make sure he didn’t harm himself, and I learned a lot about the human spirit in the process.
There have been plenty of times when I have been upset because I didn’t get what I wanted. Plenty of times when I was obsessed with something, and yet it was kept just out of my reach no matter how hard I tried to get to it.
Is it possible that the universe is looking out for you and me, and that there are things that are kept an arm’s length from us for our own best interest?

3. Try a different angle
If you’ve come up against something that feels impassable, Is there another way you can approach your work, or the dream you’re working on?
Could you begin taking action on a different portion of the work related to your dream?
Action, in the way of taking the next step toward the dream you are working on, is important. If you’ve hit a place where you’re not getting traction on one part of your work, it may be valuable to switch up your approach.
You’ll learn new things, and keep your momentum going.
