The Presentation

Forgiveness and Hope: The primary enablers to achieve flow

As one journeys toward peak performance, the flow state can only be reached by presenting “hope”, initially intentionally and then intuitively at each moment of concern, doubt and misstep. Forgiveness essentially directs hope to the better management of task.

Forgiveness of self permits one to “see more clearly” the challenges of the task and injects a trust in a capacity to remain in control. This trust underpins the abandonment of doubt necessary to reach and maintain flow.
