Here are some of our favourite quotes that have inspired the spirit of flowprofiler®.
The concept of ‘flow’ is prolific in the field of positive pyschology. The term was orginally coined by Professor Mihayli Csikszentmihayli, of Claremont University, in his book Flow: the psychology of optimal experience as
“the neurobiology of excellence”.
Flow is described as a state where body, mind and environment converge to reach the ultimate state of effortless engagement.
Professor Martin Seligman, author of Authentic Happiness says:
“Authentic happiness derives from raising the bar for yourself, not rating yourself against others.”
Daniel Goleman is famous for his pioneering book Emotional Intelligence and says:
“Being able to enter flow is emotional intelligence at its best.”
He then goes onto say:
“Flow represents harnessing emotions in the service of performance and learning.”
Flow has also been described as:
“Being in the zone.”
“Being stretched but not stressed.”
“Finding your groove.”
“A state of personal excellence.”
We like the concept of flow because it is positive, personal and powerful:
Positive because it represents the ultimate state of engagement. Powerful because small changes can result in big impacts and personal because it is unique to you.
