Based on the lives of several successful women entrepreneurs (most notably inventor and cable television product sales mogul Joy Mangano), the film follows the misadventures, exploits and accomplishments of a composite character simply named Joy (Jennifer Lawrence). When viewers first meet the film’s heroine, she lives a harried and frustrating life. As the divorced mother of two, she works a thankless job as an airline ticket counter agent, barely eking out a living to support her largely dysfunctional family.

As seasoned conscious creation practitioners know, the beliefs we hold in creating our individual realities are often present in multiple areas of our lives. In this regard, our beliefs frequently function like a computer’s operating program, providing a basis that supports all the application programs running on top of it. Consequently, the beliefs that govern the flow of things in one area of our life may also be at work governing the flow of things elsewhere, too, and this is plainly apparent in Micky’s experience as a fighter in the ring and a fighter in everyday life.
