How To Find YOUR Way, Have A Lot Of Fun And Drastically Increase Your Chances Of Success At The Same Time.

 
Did you ever start out on a new project, full of motivation and excitement… but then, after only a short while, all that passion and motivation to take action and to move forward was suddenly gone?

But why, what happened?

Of course, there are various reasons for a sudden lack of motivation. It could be caused by different fears you may not even be conscious about, such as fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of mediocrity… and there are others.

But, one of the biggest reasons for a sudden lack of passion and motivation to take action is because you don’t approach things the way YOU should approach them.

You may do things in a way that is commonly accepted as the “right” way to handle a specific task. But, although this may work for many or even most people it may not necessarily be YOUR way –  and  if it’s not your way, it will be rather difficult to succeed with that approach.

This is true for any kind of endeavor, project or task. Whether you are trying to find a new job, to write a report, to raise money for a project… or whatever.

The fact that you don’t feel any passion, motivation and excitement when it comes to taking action indicates that you aren’t approaching that specific task in a way that corresponds with you.

Your logic may tell you that a specific way should work for you, because it’s taught by an authority, it seems to work for most people, it is widely accepted as the best approach…

But, again, a highly successful approach, method or strategy may not necessarily work that great for you. However, it may be an interesting guideline you can build on.

Finding your unique approach is easier than you may think.

Simply use your creativity. Listen to your intuition and have fun finding your OWN way. When you start having fun, passion, excitement and motivation will quickly join in and with that emotion and energy on your side, success becomes inevitable.

If you are not passionate about doing things a certain way, you will do them half-heartedly, there will be a lack of commitment and energy – simply because the energy of passion and excitement will be missing –  and no matter how hard you may be pushing, it won’t make up for the lack of passion and your success will be mediocre at best.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to invent a completely new approach to move your project forward. Most of the time, it will be enough to change only a few minor things here or there.

And those minor changes will represent your way, a way you will be excited to walk. Passion and motivation will join in naturally and therefore allow your full commitment and guarantee your success.

A few things that could prevent you from finding your path…

The biggest obstacles to approaching things in your own unique way will be the fear of the unknown, the fear to try something new and the fear to fail.

I suggest you take on a playful attitude. Just have fun experimenting with new ideas. A part of you, your Higher Self already knows your perfect way. All you need to do is to open that channel of communication between your Higher Self and your waking consciousness.

And the best way to do that is by letting go of your fears, by lightening up a little bit and by taking on a playful attitude.

Give it a try, you don’t really have anything to lose. If you take action without any passion and excitement, it will be a rather unpleasant experience and your success will be mediocre at best.

If you play with your own approach, you will have a lot of fun and the chances for success will be much better, because the energy of passion and excitement will pull you forward.

A few simple tips to find your way…

To find YOUR way, simply reach within, use your intuition, connect with your higher self and ask for guidance… Make a note of the ideas you will receive. Imagine different scenarios and approaches and observe your emotions and feelings. If you feel excited about a specific idea you have a good starting point.

And by all means, don’t discount any of those ideas you may receive – no matter how crazy they may seem at first. Just look around, the world is full of absolutely amazing inventions, hugely successful people, remarkable concepts… that started out as a crazy idea.

How To Get Into The Flow, Turn Work Into Play & Fun And Achieve Extraordinary Results

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” – Buddha

You are fully immersed in the very moment. There is absolutely no effort.  You enjoy a constant flow of great ideas. You are playing, you are feeling excited and tremendously good…

You are in the FLOW!

What an amazing feeling and you may have already been there. But, probably you don’t know how you got there and you have no idea how you can get back there again.

Getting into the flow isn’t really that difficult. Actually, it is your most natural state and if you drop all those emotions that don’t really belong to your natural state, you automatically “drop” into the state of flow – there is no other way.

But, before I show you how to get into the flow, I would like to spend a few more minutes to explain a bit more in depth what this state is and why it is so tremendously beneficial and rewarding.

So, what exactly is this state of FLOW?

As I already mentioned, the flow is your most natural state and it happens when you let go of all your fears and blocks. It happens when you stop pushing, forcing and struggling, when you forget about your deadlines, when you stop worrying about making mistakes…

When you are in the flow, you are in the here and now, you are deeply connected with a much bigger part of you, a part you are usually not aware of.

You are moving like the water in the river bed – with ease and at the perfect speed. You don’t push and struggle upstream, you are simply flowing downstream and no effort is required.

I guess you already know why this is so fantastic…

Being in the flow is nearly effortless. You can “play” and take action for hours without getting tired.

And, of course, being pulled downstream is just so much more enjoyable than pushing against the stream without really getting anywhere.

Once you get into the flow, you will also realize that you have access to a much deeper creativity. Ideas and realizations start flowing into your mind easily and effortlessly.

And this means, the quality of your work will increase drastically. Creative tasks like writing, painting… that may usually take weeks could be done in hours. Actually, many of the most famous songs were written in less than 2 hours out this state of flow.

The perfect melody, the perfect words… everything is coming together – almost in an instant. You are tapping into your inner genius and the more often you do it, the faster you will get there and the deeper the connection will become.

All extraordinary achievements happen when you are in the flow and geniuses like Mozart, Einstein, Da Vinci… used to create out of this state.

Of course, the state of flow is most beneficial for highly creative tasks like writing, painting, composing… but, of course, you can also use it for ordinary tasks that usually don’t require much creativity.

Performing ordinary tasks while being in the flow won’t necessarily create better results, BUT, you will feel so much better while doing those tasks, it will require less energy and you will feel less tired and frustrated at the end of the day.

And, it is also a great way to learn the art of “getting into the flow” with simple tasks, because you will feel less pressure and it is much easier to let go when you work on something that is not so important.

Finally, how do you get into the flow?

There are various “tricks” and ways to prepare to get into the flow. Once you are an experienced “flower” you won’t need most of them anymore, but at the beginning, the points listed below are all useful and important:

  • Make sure you find yourself in a calm and relaxed environment and you won’t be disturbed for the next few hours, or for however long you want to work on a specific task.
  • Close your eyes and do a short 5 minute meditation to calm down your mind. Take a few deep breaths and spend a few minutes in silence. Simply enjoy and let go.
  • Visualize yourself being in the flow. Everything is easy, everything flows naturally, great ideas are coming easily… and you deeply enjoy this marvelous state.
  • Take on a relaxed and playful attitude. Forget about all the stress and deadlines. Stop worrying about not being good enough. Get out of the “pushing and forcing mode” and allow yourself to be pulled to new heights using the gentle force of the flow.
  • Let go of all the pressure. Forget about your must do’s and have to’s… Flow cannot happen as long as there is any resistance. What resistance? Fear, worry, forcing, pushing, deadlines, must do, absolutely needs to happen… you know what I’m talking about.
  • Flow is the connection with your inner being, with your true SELF and this means, you need to be your SELF. You are perfect the way you are and you shouldn’t be any different. No one in this world has the exact same combination of talents and qualities you have. The world needs you exactly the way you ARE!

    Don’t try to be someone else. Be yourself, fall into yourself, enjoy your SELF and love your SELF. Have faith and trust your SELF – the river will carry you and there isn’t much you need to do. That’s the quickest and easiest way to get into the flow.

  • Now, simply start playing – without any seriousness and without expecting anything – a bit like a baby learns to walk and to talk. Write a few words without thinking too much. Have an enjoyable inner dialog with your higher self and just express what’s coming…
     
    Yes, just fool around for a while. And suddenly, a new, bright thought or idea will pop into your mind – you are getting pulled into the flow. Take the idea and do something with it. Soon, a new thought will join in, and a new one, and another…

    Now, it’s getting really exciting… You are enjoying it – don’t you?

 
Getting into the flow and enjoying extraordinary results as well as a deeply fulfilling state of being isn’t really that difficult. It just takes a bit of practice and a playful attitude.

Just give it a try, I’m sure you will absolutely love it.
