#TBT way back to the 1st ever #jumpforjoy Feature! Christopher Michael King from June 11, 2012

Throw way, way back to the very first Jump for Joy feature! Im thinking it may be time to do a follow up… where are they now feature soon :)

“I am most joyful for the point in my life that occurred in 2009 that I now simply refer to as “the shift.” It was a turning point; the moment when I finally awoke to discover who and what I really am and understood the delta between that and what I was presenting myself to be. I am joyful when I am connected to other sentient beings of light and energy and when I am able to give and share myself completely and without hesitation and when any or every part of my being can be of service to others.

I am proud to support the US Special Olympics (http://SOSC.org), the Wounded Warrior Project as a Tough Mudder participant (http://ToughMudder.com) and organizations that assist animals in need.”

set the theme of success and positive action…

“Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.” – Og Mandino

You have a problem? Great. More grist for the mill. Rejoice, dive in, and investigate.” – Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

Change your attitude and gain some altitude…

we summon the courage to make choices…

“There are moments in our lives when we summon the courage to make choices that go against reason, against common sense and the wise counsel of people we trust. But we lean forward nonetheless because, despite all risks and rational argument, we believe that the path we are choosing is the right and best thing to do. We refuse to be bystanders, even if we do not know exactly where our actions will lead.” – Howard Schultz

You need to believe in yourself and in your projects…

“It always came back to my original belief of having passion. You can’t just generate passion; you’ve really got to have it from the beginning. You need to believe in yourself and in your projects. Very early in your career you need to shoot things that you believe in, things that you really want to shoot [photography]. You need to take risks. Don’t wait for the phone to ring. Success is only going to happen if you are out there really working to make it happen.” – Eric Meola

Macartney Tonello-Greenfield @MacartneyTG #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! October 13, 2014

go outside of your comfort zone…

“Taking risks means that you go outside of your comfort zone – that you go outside of your boundaries. The most successful people are the ones who are not afraid to give it their all and possibly humiliate themselves greatly in front of others.  It’s like that one saying, ‘The person who asks a question is a fool for five minutes, but the person who never asks and remains silent is a fool forever.’  You choose the way you want to live your life.” – Cynthia Amy Tang

…the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great…

“…the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. When you are seeking to bring big plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate. Hang out with friends who are like-minded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly, be that kind of a friend for your friends.” — Mark Twain

Let your joy be contagious…

“Let your joy be contagious. Let it spread through your home, your job, your children. Let it spread through the world like a virus, so that when you forget it you’ll catch it from someone else. Because listen: we are totally contagious beings . Moods, energy, excitement, even negativity. Choose wisely.” — Jennifer Pastiloff

I want to taste and glory …

“I want to taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of non-feeling, or stop questioning and criticizing life and take the easy way out. To learn and think: to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love.” – Sylvia Plath

one of the greatest things you can ever do for yourself…

“Traveling the world is one of the greatest things you can ever do for yourself. It will shatter all illusions, stereotypes, and notions you have of the world and the people in it. You will unlearn, learn, and relearn things you will never discover through a book, a classroom, or a degree. It will humble you, shake you, wake you up. It will seep into your pores and find its way to your heart, and it will find it fast. The veil over your vision will come off and you will experience things that fringe over magic. And you will never ever be the same again in the best way possible. So do yourself a favor, and just buy that damn plane ticket.” – Satori
