Here’s the final installment (for now) in the Tools for Fostering Flow. Getting the hang of the Flow thing yet? Relishing the sheer delight of an effort-less, stress-less, joy-filled existence based in Who you are Being NOT What you are Doing?
Here are five more tools to take you even further on your Journey to Wholeness by super-charging your ability to tame stress and foster Flow:
10: Trust Your Gut – You have inside you all the wisdom you seek. Instead of stressing yourself out by fighting your instincts or feeling compelled to justify your hunches with logic, try trusting your intuition for a change.
11: Behave As If – There are two aspects to this one: If you gave yourself the same care and attention you give your friends and loved ones, what support would you give yourself right now? And, what would you dare to do if you believed you couldn’t fail?
12: Take Baby Steps – Great cathedrals get built one stone at a time. Your dreams are the same. Don’t try to take it all on at once. Identify the next small step and take it. And another, and another, and another. Before you know it, you’ll have built the life you dream of.
13: Celebrate – Every step forward is a cause for celebration. Every time you move closer to your dreams, pat yourself on the back with a party moment! Ta Dah! That moment of self-affirmation will release additional positive fuel to keep you moving forward.
14: Time for What Matters – Time is not a scarce resource. You have all the time you need for the things that matter. Your sole responsibility in each moment is to discern what matters most right now, focus and follow through. Using the other tools will help clear the path for you to tap into your deepest wisdom and move forward, in each moment, with confidence, peace and joy.
