[In my previous blog post I wrote about an incredible tool that you can use to get into a positive flow and create what you want. It’s called “what-if-up.”
Once I was feeling good and in the flow I had amazing, dramatic results. Using the “what-if-up” tool, I joyously created and delivered an awesome speech. Here’s what happened.]
“What-if-up” improved my mood and made me feel happy and relaxed about my upcoming speech. I was in the flow and ideas for my speech began to pour in. When I stood in the shower in the morning I remembered stories that illustrated how law of attraction works. Later, when I sat in my “creative genius” chair, I came up with an outline. When I was lying in bed that night, I came up with a powerful introduction and an idea for how to give my audience an actual experience of “what-if-up.”
When you’re in the flow you discover synchronicites that can give you thrill bumps. Obstacles melt away; creative ideas, people and things materialize at just the right moment; you have access to infinite possibilities. For example, a helpful neighbor suggested that I might be inspired if I tried typing with my keyboard and mouse on a board across the arms of my reclining chair and I discovered that, in a reclining position, a flood of out-of-the-box ideas gushed into my mind.
When you feel that “life is wonderful” feeling, wonderful things happen. For example, another neighbor offered unlimited use of his color laser printer so that I could make flyers for the presentation. He even delivered the enormous printer to my office with a ream of 32 pound glossy paper, at no charge. A little later, a good friend offered to drive me to the speech-venue and to be my assistant. Another friend offered her home for us to stay in the night before.
Synchronicities happened one after another and I felt like I was in exactly the right place at the right time doing what I was meant to be doing. I discovered a way to remember my speech without having to memorize it; a client introduced me to the technique of mind mapping and an internet search on mind mapping then led me to a video clip that explained how to use Mind Maps™ to memorize a speech. I also discovered a way to deliver my speech without tedious practice. I vividly imagined the key words on my mind map and rather than walking around practicing speaking my speech, I visualized delivering the speech perfectly over and over.
As the time to deliver my speech approached, instead of feeling nervous and reluctant, I felt confident and excited. Using “what-if-up” to improve my approach to the task of writing a speech had helped me to fulfill my fantasy of creating an inspired speech, easily memorizing it and effortlessly preparing to deliver it.
And the actual delivery? It went very well, thank you. The speaker evaluations were glowingly positive and the feedback I received quite helpful for creating future speeches. My talk also engendered more coaching opportunities and new Teleclass enrollments.
It is so amazing how a simple little tool like “what-if-up” can spark such incredible results. If you haven’t tried it yet, go back to my previous blog post for a quick “how to” and try “what-if-up” for yourself. I’m sure that with a little practice, your results will be just as inspired.
