Remember a time when you felt like you were “in the flow?” Imagine breathing easily as everything lines up effortlessly. Opportunities show up. You are supported in being your best. You feel good, you look good. You like the people around you. You enjoy this moment and you look forward to the future.
Here’s the good news. There is a formula for this outrageous attraction. It isn’t a secret. Perhaps no one taught it to you, yet I suspect you have known it in your heart all along. All you need to do is practice it.
Have you ever felt like no-one was listening? Yesterday, in the middle of a meeting I burst out with “I feel like I’m not being heard!!!” It was a moment where I felt like my words were flowing down the drain without clearing away a bit of the mud in the conversation.
This morning I read an interesting statistic. You see we only remember about 20% of what we hear. Why? You see, we listen at a rate of 125 to 250 words per minute. At the same time we think at 1,000 to 3,000 words per minute. So while other people are speaking, our minds are raging ever onward.
