No matter how prepared we are or how many times we double-check our strategies, unforeseen occurrences may influence our path to success. Unexpected twists and turns can hamper our progress and stop us dead in our tracks unless we have the confidence to move forward. The confidence necessary to conquer any challenge and achieve your dreams grows from releasing the power of your thoughts.

Clarity of purpose makes it easier to choose your next relevant action. When a challenge occurs, immediately ask yourself what’s the intent behind the next action you’ll take. Do you want more information? Do you want to move the process forward? Do you need additional resources?

Stop – take a breath – it will all come to you, but first what you are looking for is flow. The flow of your life, your ideas, your mind.

How can you create flow?

You have to learn to listen. In order to listen, you have to be quiet. You need to take time each and every day and be quiet. You can write and be quiet. You can listen to music and be quiet. You can sit in silence and be quiet. It’s vital to be calm and tranquil so your own mind can provide you with ideas unique to you. Not somebody else’s way, but your own. This is doing something differently than you’ve done it before.

Take the time, ten percent of a twenty-four-hour day, and be quiet. It takes practice, but the ideas will flow and you’ll find that change is not just changing, but transformation.

All you have to do is listen. Just listen.
