Isn’t the universe awesome?! I love how when you come up against a challenge or problem in your business and then bam! All of a sudden as if from nowhere the universe appears with the solution.
Are you feeling in flow with the universe right now too?
You know, when your business is connected to your heart and soul, when what you do is an extension of your personality and beliefs that’s when the magic starts to happen . . . if what you do in your business feels like an extension of you then you’re in your flow and your journey through life feels smoother – magic happens!
I heard a great example of this recently – I was chatting to a girlfriend who told me a story about someone she knows. Her friend had a business in Accountancy which she was well qualified for and had learned the relevant skills needed to serve her clients well – but she didn’t enjoy her business. Her focus was on making money but she never felt that she was aligned totally with what she did. She was well off financially but in her heart the business felt like work and each day was a struggle.
After a few years she lost interest in the business completely and consequently the income dried up because her heart wasn’t in it anymore. She took some time out and so at this point she was poor financially but emotionally rich. She had time to spend on reconnecting with herself and focusing on what she really wanted to do with her life.
After a year she set up another business but this time her business leveraged her passion – something she did every day anyway because she loved it so now she gets paid to work with clients sharing her passion.
But here is the best part – since her business became an extension of her soul lots of magic started to happen – dreams began to come true and opportunities presented themselves. She loves her business, her clients love what she does and everything just flows smoothly.
Does that sound like you? Are you in your flow?
How can you get into your flow if it isn’t happening for you right now?
Tune into your soul and ask yourself this question – is my business connected to my lifestyle goals? Am I doing what I truly love or what I think I should be doing?
If you’re not totally in tune with your business, everything you try to achieve will be a struggle.
Here are 3 of my top tips to help you get back into flow:
- Get focused:
First thing in the morning when you wake up, take a pen and paper and write down what is in your mind at that time – don’t think about it or write what you believe you should be writing but just get your thoughts out of your mind and onto the pages. I wake up and straight away, I write three pages every day – this means that by the time I begin my day all the clutter in my mind is gone and I have the mental freedom to focus.
Set your alarm if you have to because it is important that you make time to do this even if it does mean you have to wake up half an hour earlier than usual.
- Make Time For Yourself:
Every week I recommend you make one hour for a lifestyle date with yourself – do something you really love and that makes you happy. Reconnect with the child inside yourself: go to the movies and eat popcorn, take a walk and splash in puddles – it doesn’t matter what you do but it mustn’t feel like effort – it’s playtime for your inner self. I love to go off for a bush walk and just think. It’s the time when I reconnect with myself and that is sacred to me.
- Reach Out To Your Support Network:
If you’re struggling or feeling overwhelmed, remember to reach out to the people around you. Make time to spend with your kids, go for dinner with your partner, drinks with your friends or lunch with your mom but don’t sit indoors feeling a failure. When you reconnect with your support network, you are reminded of what is so great about you – and when you can love yourself you can think more clearly.
Are you in your flow towards business success right now? What do you do to stay in or recover your flow? Are you having lifestyle dates with yourself? I’s love to hear your thoughts.
