Think about your very best writing sessions. Weren’t they filled with passion and purpose? Didn’t the words flow effortlessly from your mind to the page?

Of course.  That’s what the flow state is all about?

But can you intentionally manufacture that sense of purpose?

Can you purposefully motivate yourself to the level of #Unstoppable?

Can you enter that magical flow state at will?

Yes, on all counts.

And it’s far easier than you might think – no matter what your mental state is at the outset.
