Finding Your own happiness is possible by finding your own state of flow. Csikszentmihályi is a Psychologist who describes flow as “being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. Being so absorbed into something you love to do, which is challenging enough, but not too easy or too hard, just for the love of doing it and not for the outcome. To get there, first we need to have some level of honesty with ourselves. There is a calling for something we love to do in all of us, but we get too busy doing what we need to do in order to get what we want to have! There is nothing wrong with trying to make a living. The great loss happens when we forget the actual living in the process of trying to make a living. We go about our daily routines without enthusiasm and we feel exhausted at the end of the day. One day of our daily routine may feel so long at times that we feel it may never end. Bringing enthusiasm back to life is what we need to get into our own state of flow. So consider the following steps:
1- Be Honest with yourself and find your own calling. You are worthy of it, just be honest and have a real look at your own interests. What gives you a kick?
2- Open some time for your own interest and focus on what you love to do. It does not have to be a lot of time out of your schedule, but only you can open this window for you.
3- Don’t give into wasting your time on a too simple version of what you like or don’t set the bar too unrealistically high. Creating your own balance.
4- Enjoy doing what you love to do for the sake of doing it.
5- Enjoy your new habit: LIVING IN YOUR OWN STATE OF FLOW
