The video of Kacy Catanzaro is something you truly have to see to believe.
The misconception that only certain number of individuals is able to reach the pinnacle of success by delivering unbelievably high human performance gets shattered as you go gathering a better understanding of the flow state. Every individual has it in him or her to deliver the best and for that you need to hack that particular flow. When the right hand doesn’t work you automatically substitute with the left. A lot is being talked about this particular state of flow that pushes one towards unimaginable dizzying heights of performance, speeding the process of learning, boosting self-esteem, and moving ahead to the next level in a fluid manner. Steven Kotler, who is a reputed journalist and authored several books, centralizes on the power of flow state, and how to attain that state in his latest launch “The Rise of Superman: Decoding the Science of Ultimate Human Performance.”
Hack into the Flow for Superman Status
While exemplifying the rise of superman, a lot of inspiration is taken from research and personal interviews of individuals who have been super achievers and broken records while taking part in activities such as athletic sports, surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, rock climbing, conducting solo jazz, and even from individuals who have successfully zeroed into a research breakthrough. You have to remember that achieving each of these is no mean feat and according to the author the rise of superman happens in the realm of flow. To put it with greater clarity, the message imparted from the book inspires one to tap that state of flow from within as it possesses unlimited strength to unleash and outperform beyond expectations.
The author Steven Kotler further goes to emphasize that it is not just super performances you can expect by being in such a state of flow but that it leads to a sense of achievement, contentment, happiness and harmony. Kotler has done diligent research on the topic of flow in his flow genome project where he was the co-founder of “A Small Fury Prayer: Dog Rescue and the Meaning of Life” published in 2010.
Applicable to Every Sphere
The book has immense implications for normal humans to reach that state of flow in whatever they do. Individuals looking out for a change in scene in their professional front or tinkering over the idea of pursuing a hobby are sure to find the philosophy of being in a state of flow useful. It is not that the flow works only of those related to sports or research. Even those involved in creative arts or marketing or any other field can draw insights. From the book, you learn how to gradually narrow that gap between a normal performance and the above-expectations one and to achieve what is impossible to possible in your day-to-day work and activities. The book makes way for interesting reading particularly for those individuals looking for a change in how they perform. Once you hack in the flow, the world is yours as you are now equipped with that unleashed power to be a superman.
As you stroll down the isles of your local super market have you noticed a highly disturbing trend? The boxes food is packaged in have stayed the same size, yet the total number of onces inside the box has shrunk dramatically.
Why would a food company do this to us?
Well, friends it comes do to keeping prices down while making sure profits rise. What better way to keep profits up than to trick consumers into thinking they are getting the same amound of food for the same price.
What is food of the future?
I think there will come a day when food companies can’t shave ounces off the box and we we litterally just by boxes of air. No food will be inside the box. Just a grocery store full of colorful boxes.
Take for example the benign Triscuit. Everybody loves a Triscuit. Check out the box of reduced fat Triscuit it has about 8 tiny ounces in it. 8 ounces!!! in a giant size box!!!
Tell us what you think? Is all fair in the war for your super market dollar? Or are these shady techniques ruining the trust we have with our local grocer?
Want to instantly increase your creativity? Studies have shown that just the background noise of a coffee shop can raise your creativity. At http://www.coffitivity.com/ learn more about the Coffitivity applicaiton. Download the app for Android, iPhone, iPad, and Mac Desktop.
The whole premise of this creativity app is that research has shown it’s hard to be creative in a quiet environment. I think it has to due with the fact that humans are social creatures and being around other people inspires us to do better. Just the right amount of ambient noise gets the creative juices flowing.
The app has been featured in LifeHacker, The New York Times, Inc., TIME, and LEDBURY.
So when you can’t get to a coffee shop at 1:30 AM in the morning while writing your blog turn on and get creative with the Coffitivity coffee shop app.
My question is when is this app coming to the Windows Phone? Only Android and Apple at this point which I find unfortunate.
If you don’t already know what the flow state is I will define it here. The flow state as described by Steven Kotler is an optimal state of consciousness where we both feel our best and perform our best. I’ve heard Steven Kotler on several podcasts are really like what he has to say. The first time I heard him was on Dave Asprey Of Bulletproof Coffee’s Podcast. Taping into the flow state will help you perform better in business and in everyday life. If you haven’t heard Steven Kotler speak about his new book, The Rise Of Superman, you need to do youself a favor and listen to his talk!
Watch the video Mr. Kotler conducted at Talks At Google:
