Increase your performance by 500%
In building a business, coaching, speaking, and writing it can get overwhelming sometimes! You know what I'm sayin'?
I've always thought if I'm not working hard enough then I'm not making progress! Well, I just interviewed the #1 leading expert on human performance, Steven Kotler and he BLEW MY MIND with what he told me.
First off, this guy is epic. Steven is a New York Times bestselling author, an award-winning journalist and the cofounder/director of research for the Flow Genome Project. He scientifically validates and improves companies + individuals performance by 500%. SAY WHAT?!
His writings have been translated into over 40 languages and appeared in over 80 publications, including The New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, Forbes, Wired and TIME.
One of my favorite books by him is the New York Times bestseller The Rise of Superman, one of the most talked about books in 2013 and the first book in history to land on national bestseller lists in the sports, science, and business categories simultaneously.
I mean come on, who doesn't want to be Superman!? I dress up like him every year for Halloween, no joke.
Truly, he is the expert of "flow." Not like, "go with the flow bro." Flow being an altered state of consciousness.
Ever have that moment when you completely lose yourself in your creative pursuits? Or how time flies when you're having fun? Or when you dig deep and find a hidden power within yourself?
That's flow! In fact, most scientists and physiologists say that's what we're actually longing for... NOT happiness! I know, I know, maybe some alarms went off, but listen here as Steven explains why.
Now, you would think the worlds expert on human performance would promote work, work, work. NOPE!
In fact, recovery is a huge part of the process. These are the four stages of flow and they are always repeating:
This is SO important to understand because the first and last phase of flow SUCK! And at the same time it's completely normal.
So don't beat yourself up if you feel like you're struggling, or wanting to recover, you have to in order to experience flow.
