Achieving flow in your business isn’t about the strategy!

Entrepreneurs search for flow in all the wrong places and here's why!

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform.

“I want the sales to flow”

“I want creative ideas to just flow out of me”

“I want to be productive and flow through my to-do list”

All common things that I hear entrepreneurs say, in fact 99% of those who come to work with me say exactly those things and I mean of course they would, we all desire that flow right?

But I find entrepreneurs look for flow in all the wrong places

They look for it in a strategy that’s going to get sales flowing

They look for it in a productivity tool

They look for it in a scheduled blog writing time

And that’s fine, those things are all useful BUT they don’t hold the key to unlocking flow!

Because flow is about you

It’s about your enviroment

The fact of the matter is very simple, if you desire flow then you have to actually be in a place where flow can happen and that starts with you

Look at it this way, sales can’t flow if you’re blocking them, sales can’t flow if you’re not fully following through on the strategy that enables the sales to come in in the first place!

And it’s the same with creativity, creativity doesn’t flow because you set it a time slot where you’re going to sit down and make it work, creativity flows when it’s given an environment in which it can flow and that environment is created and brought into reality by you!

If you desire flow then you have to flow, you have to be in  a place where flow can actually exist for you, so what do you need to do to ensure you flow. Once you understand that flow begins and ends with you ensuring you’re providing it all with an environment in which it can flow in then the game changes.

Understand what you need to flow

Understand who you need to be to flow

Understand what you need to feel to flow

Then go make all of that your reality!

Bring it all into existence in your world!

Take action on opening the doors to flow!
