Success does not happen by accident. It takes both planning and commitment. Are you ready to embrace success and start achieving your goals and dreams?

Using the idea of flow state you can create success for yourself. Apply the 7-Principles outlined below and watch the magic happen:

1. Choose a goal and create a plan
Your brain craves direction. Decide what you need to complete to achieve it. It’s important that the task contains challenge but that the challenge is matched to your skill and ability; not too easy and not too hard. That will keep you motivated and interested and prevent you from getting bored or disheartened.

2. Eliminate all distractions
Choose a location where you will be comfortable and undisturbed. Make sure that you have everything you will need to accomplish your task at hand.

3. Have all the tools and resources you will need
Make sure that they are the most appropriate and best for the task but also that they suit you. Using oil-based paints to complete your masterpiece won’t work if you are used to working in watercolour!

4. Harness the power of visualisation 
By using visualisation, you will give yourself the crucial ability to see yourself successfully completing the task and achieving your goal. You’ll now be really changing your mindset and making sure it is primed for success. Forward visualisation is a powerful strategy used by many coaches.

5. Stop conscious thought
Working within the flow state is only successful if you ‘go with the flow’ and avoid consciously think about what you’re doing and why. You can do this because you’ll be engaged in completing a task that engages you, has meaning and has intrinsic value.

6. Focus on your task
This will be easy as you’ve eliminated distractions, visualised what you have to do and yourself successfully completing it. You have everything ready and you are primed for success.

7. Do it! 
It’s now time to act. The only way to achieve anything is to take action. If you do nothing, then there cannot be any change or progress. Achieving a successful outcome, therefore, requires you to take action and create change.

Using the principles of the flow state you can create a mindset that will ensure your success in any task or challenge. Positivity is a crucial factor and there is no room for self-doubt or anxiety. You are the key to your ability to achieve your goals and dreams.
