When you are in the flow and everything in your world is responding, you feel unflappable. You create your future building from one small success to another, and before you know it another, and another. Things are happening fast, and sideliners shout, “keep going, you’ve got this,” and your momentum builds.
When things are not flowing so well, and every twist and turn feels like you are falling deeper you also tend to self-create. Your analysis of the opportunity is that whatever appears good must be a trick, a setup, or a false hope that isn’t going to happen. It’s different from unflappable, and you hear sideliners shouting, “I told you so.”
Which sideliner was right? The answer is, you create your flow. Input conditions output, garbage in, garbage out. When you create your own story, when you decide the flow, you change the input.
Your choices are conditioned by input. That choice will alter the outcome, produce results, or do nothing. You will be in the flow, or not. You’ll decide the pace, you’ll coast, accelerate, or stay stuck.
You’ll start today, and start tomorrow, and start the next day with input. Be your own sideliner (critic), create your flow.
