Follow the 20 tips above and you will turn out to be a great person.
You will need to be aware that the mind can also get stuck into a rut. The mind can get stuck believing that no change is the safe route to navigate the journey of life. However, life involves constant change and being able to see outside a narrow vision alerts you to opportunities to grow and be the best version of yourself.
It is easy to get led into the herd mentality of negativity, blame and anxiety. Flow is a positive option, being able to accept that sometimes having a rigid opinion blocks the chance of allowing life to flow.
Courage is acknowledging the bad situation you may sometimes find yourself in, realizing that this may be situational distress and using the experience to pivot to a better place is wisdom. Introducing flow into your life will grease the wheels so that you can be the best version of yourself and leave a lasting legacy.
What does flow look like?
Flow is having an understanding that each life's roadblock is an opportunity to pivot to a better place or reinvent yourself to cope with the current situation. It means taking full responsibility for your actions, opinions and choices.
