A key to his success was looking down at the red dot stenciled on his glove. This routine helped him settle his mind to find the inner calm of peak performance. To read more see an article in a NZ Sunday Paper.
A coaching client said to me that over the holiday period they wished to stay in the moment rather than review and adjust their Map forward in life, their MotiveMap.
The power of now, living in the moment is an area I love working with people on to awaken the current moment from the mental processing of looking ahead and back in time. The key here is to stay in the moment open and detached from your Map outcomes. Then review and change this MotiveMap each day based on feelings, learning to trust your instinct’s to more accurately guide you forward. Without a Map listing our intentions, which are very similar to goals, we can drift without a mechanism to inspire our passion and keep ourselves accountable living our dreams.
Having a clear path forward, while staying open to change constantly adjusting your Map based on feel, provides a sense of clarity in the moment. Feeling clear and together, without the mental clutter, helps create the foundation of self belief to heighten the power of the moment and sense of trust.
Tune into the power of intention to inspire the MotiveMap path of greater energy to achieve more each day driven by the fire inside that we call the power of passion burning bright to awaken us from the inside.
Life is supposed to flow with ease and joy when you are on track and doing what you enjoy. Gone are the old days with the mindset that life should be tough!
Deepak Chorpra describes this flow in his book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. The fourth law is the THE LAW OF LEAST EFFORT. A key to being fully satisfied in life is to be living on track in the flow, the flow is the effortless joy of life when on track, ‘In The Zone.’
For many people a key determinate of this is their level of career satisfaction. If you are in a career that you find stimulating and satisfying then life tends to flow with ease and more positives occur along the path we call life.
During the last 2 months the flow of life has taken a new level of ease for me. An example of the flow is a few days ago I ran the Auckland Half Marathon. In the build up to this event I realized I needed new running shoes. As I had been the business mentor for the owner of a prominent chain of sports shoe shops, I thought I must contact him to see if he can offer me another special deal. Then a couple of days latter on my run who do I meet on the street? Yes a very random and unlikely coincidence it was. What is the chance of running along in Auckland and seeing this person? So after a chat I purchased new running shoes feeling very happy with how the flow had yet again helped my path in life.
This is just one example of the flow assisting me each day. Some people describe this as good luck, they may say that a certain person always has good luck, yet I believe you make your own luck if you take full responsibility for the process that creates the flow.
In Deepak’s book he describes this synchronicity, these supposed random meetings, as a correlation of improbabilities. While logic would suggest they are improbable, they happen constantly and consistently when you are in the flow to provide the messages you require. This flow is occurring for many people that are awake enough and aware, who take full responsibility for the change necessary to keep them on track and in the flow.
Proactively making it happen is about plotting the SuccessMap to the future we truly desire. A by product of this flow and being on track in life is the certainty of focus and excitement that naturally will flow, knowing you are on track along the personal path or map forward in life. Greater self belief and certainty are natural by products of being in the flow.
