Would you like to spend far more of your time in a state of ‘flow’?
Flow is the experience of being totally absorbed in the moment. It is when time seems to stand still and nothing else seems to matter.
I was reading about the legendary tennis player Billie Jean King and how she described her experience of a game:
“On my very best days I have this fantastic, utterly unself-conscious feeling of invincibility…
I don’t worry about how I’m hitting the ball, and I hardly notice my opponent at all. It’s like I’m out there by myself…. I concentrate only on the ball in relationship to the face of the racket, which is a full time job anyway, since no two balls ever come over the net the same way. I appreciate what my opponent is doing, but in a very detached, abstract way, like an observer in the next room. I see her moving to her left or right, but it’s almost as though there weren’t any real opponent, as though I didn’t know – and certainly didn’t care – whom I was playing against.”
Yet the flow state, or being ‘in the zone’, is not reserved for elite athletes only. It is available to us all.
When is your mind at its most peaceful?
Think of a time when your habitual, inner chatter fell away and you felt truly present. Maybe it was when you were out in nature? Or playing a sport, doing a hobby, or even a completely random moment in time?
Now imagine being in this state when:
*In conversation with your clients
*Working on growing your practice
*Solving the challenges that occur in your life
What would this do for you and your results?
Let wisdom do the work for you
One of the core factors in allowing yourself to live in flow more often is realising you have an innate intelligence available to you at all times.
