“The Zone” “In The Flow” “Peak State” Athletes know this place. Artists thrive on the energy of the zone. Business leaders refer to this peak state of mind when their best creative thoughts were born. And yet for many of us, this flow state has been hit or miss at best and impossible at worst. Perhaps we experienced “the flow” during a special moment, but not as a daily or even monthly event. It is not only possible to enter into this flow state on a regular basis- you can learn to manipulate your biology and addict your brain to this state. By using simple rituals that bring into account the body, the mind, the inner spirit you can enter into a peak state of performance, of creativity and radical intuition. This zone is where we make money easier, connect more deeply in our relationships and create our own luck. Understand this- Repeated PROFITS are not luck Consistent PERFORMANCE is not luck Daily ENERGY is not luck Regular CREATIVITY is not luck Deeply CONNECTED INTIMACY
Myths And Lies Of The Flow State
Human as we are, we can’t help but compare ourselves to other people. It is so easy to think that they have it better than us, that we can’t ever be in the same place and mindset as them. Tony Lister is well familiar with this feeling. In this episode, he spills to us the times he used to simultaneously envy those who seemed to always be in flow and condemn himself for frequently falling out of it. But it was not until he started coaching guru after guru that Tony quickly discovered that they are just like us. Here, he breaks down the myths and lies that surround the flow state, moving us out of the illusion that anyone is always in the flow. Tune into this great episode to get past the fake news of social media and learn how to consistently get back into the flow after life happens.
How To Flow
We spend so much energy demanding that life shows up the way we think it ought to show up that we forget to just be and let life naturally unfold and show itself up for us. After a lot of talk about the flow state, in this episode, Tony Lister finally dives into the practical steps you can take in real life to drop into the flow. Just for fun, he decided to record this episode while standing in the very cold Boise River in October. He takes us into this great episode to provide the daily tools we need that will quickly get us back in the flow.
The Insecure Overachiever
The insecure overachiever is a person who pushes themselves relentlessly to improve, but never quite arrives. Corporations love this personality because they work extra hours, keep giving more and more, and often self-manage. The end result is a burned-out leader who hides behind a lifetime of trophies, awards, and titles. In this episode, Tony Lister explores the ways to break the habit of overachieving and how to actually enjoy the journey. He shares with you how you can learn to live by the flow and connect with yourself to become what you truly want to be.
Finding Flow In The Chaos: Rethinking What Life Ought To Be
When Tony Lister received the invitation to ride a motorcycle through Kathmandu, Nepal, he was immediately afraid. Where traffic flowed in the opposite direction from his country, in Kathmandu, there seemed to be very few traffic rules. The roads were loaded with hundreds of other bikers swirling around each other. In this experience, Tony learned something about flow—one that he could never have otherwise seen without jumping all the way into the insanity of the moving, living organism that is the traffic of Kathmandu. Tony expresses his gratitude for Gerald Rogers, who encouraged him to experience new aspects of life. Indeed, Legendary Spiritual Adventure retreats are like nothing else!
Alone In A Dark Room By Yourself
Many of us tend to sit in a dark room and try to sort out everything that has gone wrong with our lives alone. To be able to experience radical self-transformation, however, we need to have the right external support structures. Right in the middle of quarantine, Tony Lister spent two days doing strategy sessions with a variety of people whose lives have been disrupted. He got to have several deep-dive conversations into what made them tick. Each of these people had a “story” that they didn’t quite measure up. Today’s episode explores what would happen if we went back and did a “rescue mission” on our younger versions and intervened just before we decided we weren’t good enough. Tony encourages us to get out of the darkroom, open ourselves to transformation, and rewrite our story in our own terms.
Dance Like You’ve Never Danced Before
What do you do when you have some face paint on hand coupled with some music and backlights? For Tony Lister and everyone at the Legendary Spiritual Adventure Retreat, dancing the night away is just the natural answer! Brainstorming what they could do for the kids at the orphanage they stayed in, Tony and the other retreat participants realized that most of the kids had never attended a party. So in their traditional Nepali dress, they all experienced a night to remember. The kids didn’t want the night to end and wore out the older folks. It was epic to witness their unguarded joy that reminded Tony of the wonder of being a child. Dive into this great episode that is even worth watching on the YouTube channel, “What The Flow”.
