Are You In or Out Of Flow?

24 - meaning of flow - SBS

We have all had that feeling when being in business feels like we are pushing water up a hill. You might be there now?

Perhaps you find yourself busy supporting your clients, family and friends and no matter how much you try you just don’t seem to have time for you.

And gaining clients can feel like a desperate scrabble instead of feeling easy like the right clients are attracted to you.

And occassionally you have those times when things are working and it is like everything is going in the right direction.  Roger Hamilton calls this flow.

Whether you are looking for greater success in your business or at home with your personal relationships, I beleive we all want to feel fulfilled and to know that we matter.

And that can all start by getting into flow – by knowing your strengths, what you want and what works for you – you can set yourself and others up for success.

Life is simpler without all the drama and you can communicate effectively with your critic.

For me flow is when you have a steady rhythm in life and you are able to dance between caring for others and caring for yourself with ease because you have the resources you need to be emotionally, physically, mentally and financially fit.

When you are in flow you see oppportinuties at a different level and problems just melt away.

You can learn to tap into your flow by understanding your own natural genius, talents and passions and you can stay in flow by surrounding yourself with people who are also in flow or at least committed to achieving it.

When you pay attention to what works you start to notice which tasks keep you in flow and which ones take you out.

Wealth dynamics – a business development tool that made sense of everything I had learned when exploring how to manage your critic and I use it today to inspire others to tune into their strengths and define their peer support network effectively.

It gave me greater confidence to know what and who to say no to.

It also helped me have greater confidence in the joint venture partnerships I needed to take my business to the next level. This part has revolutionised how I work.

When you have understanding of your own flow you can also master:

Flow of time – we can’t save time, but we can redirect time. When we understand how time flows, we can speed it up and slow it down to serve us.

Flow of money – All financial success in business, investments and personal income comes from directing adn controlling financial flow

Flow of markets – As you master your ability to lead a business, this mastery will come from understanding how markets are river systems of flow

Flow of relationships – As you build your teams and partnerships, your success will depend on staying in flow and helping others find their flow

Flow of opportunities – Your future success comes from new opportunities that exist today. Reposition yourself to be in the flow of these opportunities

Flow of health – Our bodies are a plumbing system of flow. When you know what flow feels like, you can direct yourself to higher health and vitality.

Flow of purpose – We are all interconnected through the flow of what we get and what we give. As you master flow, you master and grow your giving.


Flow creates clarity.

When we are out of flow even the smallest challenges can create stress and overwhelm. When we are in flow we become unstoppable. Why then do so many people struggle out of flow?

Almost always, it’s because we think we need ‘something’ before we can improve our performance.

Roger says that the truth is flow creates clarity not clarity that creates flow.

He says “Imagine a muddy pond. You can attempt to ‘solve the problem’ by trying to pull the mud from the pond which just creates  more mud and less clarity.  Or you can flow clear water from a river through the pond, which results in a clear pond. If you are unclear or uncertain, simply grow your flow and the clarity will come.

The Flow Factor

Score yourself out of 10. Zero being not true/not complete through to ten being true/complete.

1. I have clarity on what activities get me in and out of flow.

2. I focus all my time on activities that are in my flow and delegate the rest.

3. I live my ideal day and every week I live my ideal week.

4. I am excited about the year coming, what I will achieve and experience.

5. I have a team I work with who have strengths where I have weaknesses

6. I have regular review meetings with my team that keeps us in flow

7. We have aligned our roles with our strengths and hire into our weaknesses

8. I am in a company and industry that allows me to profit from my talents

9. I have aligned my strengths with my passions and my purpose in life

10. I easily take unexpected opportunities andn challenges in my stride

Now give yourself a total score out of 100.

Where would you like to increase?

When I did mine today I scored 70 – I need to work on increasing profit and delegating more.

What about you? What was your score and what would you like to have happen next?

To live in flow is to live fully, in the sweet spot of doing what you love, doing what you do best and doing what is best to do and over the years I have found that you have to be proactive to listen to your own advice and intuition as much as the wisdom of others to truly tune into what works for you.

Discovering what kind of entrepeneur I was made sense of so much for me. I am a supporter and often I seemed to help others make money only to find that I was so focused on helping people that I forgot to make it work financially for me. This then impacted my health and my family.

I learned the hard way and now I would like to make your life easier and support you to maintain focus until you are in flow.

I am loving finding the right entrepeneurs to support my growth and I would love to share this tool with you.

I have run my business for 8 years and although I have had periods of financial success and massive amounts of personal success watching my clients transform – I did consistently repeat the same cycle that was preventing me taking my business to the next level.

Since combining my communication skills with the information in this report and the experience of Fast Forward Your Business Event I am now going from strength to strength.

This tool gives you a language to value your strengths and build trust while also appreciating why your strengths can also present themselves as challenges. It is also introduces you to a global community that opened my eyes and ears to a completely new way of doing business.
