“Expand your vision?” – Create more success – A Jolt of Joan for the week of March 24, 2013
The Director of US Patent Office in 1899, Charles H Duell,
reportedly said, “Everything that can be invented has been invented”
and recommended that the patent office could be closed
as surely there was no longer a need for it.
How ridiculous, you might say,
but how many of our beliefs, hidden, unobserved,
might be viewed just as ridiculous
if they were brought into the light of day?
It is only by uncovering our beliefs in limitation
that we can create a larger, more expansive life
for ourselves and create greater success.
Joan King’s life path embodies the blending of the hard and noetic sciences. At the tender age of seventeen, she stepped into life at the Dominican convent in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. Eleven years later she left that religious training to become a chemist, and then received a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology. Her twenty-year tenure as a professor at Tufts University School of Medicine, lead her to a dynamic crossroads of personal self-discovery. She left academia. Her new found "inner knowing" ignited the writing of her first book. It became the foundation in understanding how our bodies model the teachings of our beliefs. Joan King’s blending of science and spirituality birthed her professional coaching business, Beyond-Success LLC, in 1998.
