Welcome to Day 4 of The Geek Joy Challenge! I hope today finds you well 🙂

Jumping straight to it today, it’s fill in the blanks time. Are you ready? Here goes:  “I am … ”

Joel Osteen says, “Whatever follows “I am” is going to come looking for you.”

I’m tired.
I’m bored.
I’m frustrated.
I’m fantastic!
I’m stupidly excited.
I’m delighted to be alive!
I’m never going to get this finished.

The list could go on and on but as you read each statement, it’s easy to feel the impact each one has on your body. When you say things out loud, your brain feels compelled to find evidence to back up your stated belief so when you say, “I’m tired”, do you think your brain goes out of its way to help you feel more energised or is it possible that, little by little, you begin to feel even more tired?

But what if you actually are tired? Am I advocating you lying to yourself? Not at all! But, you can choose where to put your focus and hack your brain to help you get you where you want to be. That’s the real power behind this #geekjoy challenge because, by thinking and reading about the idea of bringing delight to your day, you’re immediately priming your brain to do just that. Clever eh?!?

Which leads me on to your challenge for today, if you choose to accept it …

Play “fill in the blank” and make a conscious choice about how you want to show up in your world today and then, keep your eyes and ears open for examples.

(And don’t forget to share them using the hashtag #geekjoy. I’d love to see!)

Until then, keep smiling and have yourself a fabulous day,
