I've been struggling to get into flow and be productive the last few days. Maybe it's due to the phase I'm in. I'm currently creating a new program. To do so, I blocked time to focus and write, alone. Counterproductive thoughts popped up, like: What am I doing? Is this really needed? Will it be beneficial enough? Is it the right time? Will I find enough people who want this? Maybe I should invest my time into something else?
What helped me to get back into flow was Dean Graziosi's input on selling yourself each morning. What he meant by that is: to connect with your purpose, the reason WHY you do what you do. In my words: Who do I create this for and how do I want to serve them?
These questions shift my perspective from doubting myself and my offer to looking at the bigger picture and putting myself into a mindset of giving.
I moved from worrying about the future and obsessing about outcomes I can't control to the present moment.
What can I offer with what I know now that somebody else needs?
This gets me out of my thinking mode and makes me take action.
There are times for thinking, creating and reflecting. Currently, I wanna stay in the creation phase. Once I've finished writing and put it out there, I'll reflect with the feedback and results I got. And then, I repeat.
Funny analogy: My friend compared this creation phase to the birthing process, in the sense that it's intense, you don't know what will emerge and when it will finally be here.
