Don't ask for flow when there is no Structure


It is without doubt that everyone in life desires and yearns for that smooth flow in life but what is always at lack is that well orchestrated structure that will help keep that flow smooth and steady.

You may ask what do i mean by flow in this context? When i say flow i simply mean being successful. So in this very blog post i will explain what structure has to do with your smooth flow in life.

What structures are needed? Let's start by knowing what structure actually means according to dictionary definition. The dictionary defines it as the overall form or organization of something.

That being said let me now outline and explain what structure has to do with your smooth flow in life

There is a popular school of thought  that when opportunity meets preparation success is achieved. Preparation in this very context simply means structure. Often times we desire for a smooth flow in life but while desiring ask yourself is there any structure in place so that when that very opportunity presents itself there is a structure already in place to turn it to success.

What Structures are Needed

You may be wondering what are those structures that i have to put in place, continue reading and your worries and questions will be answered with some practical examples: let me start with my area of expertise which is>>

Blogging: A Blogger that aspires for that big firm/company to work with him should first and foremost put his house in order, now what do i mean by that, i simply mean the person should be serious with what he or she is doing. Give your site an attractive design, make it appealing, publish quality contents even when it feels like you are not getting that attention at the initial stages trust me there are people watching from afar to know if you are really serious at what you do and in time they will begin to flood your mail with those eye catching deals.

Another instance is

Trading: A trader that wants to venture into a particular line of business but don't have the required funds to execute that should first master that very trade (that is indeed the structure) proper so that when the funds needed is available it will not be mismanaged.

And the last instance is

Writing: A writer that wants to be like the William Shakespeare, Chinua Achebe, Charles Dickens, Leo Tolstoy or James Joyce of this world should first start from his/her environment because i know of a classmate of mine back in my high school days that always disturbs us with her numerous write-ups and stories that we gradually got accustomed to with time and now she is doing well in that field. Someone that read your stories, write-ups or novels in the past can recommend you in the future.

Finally i would love to sign-off by saying this "Always put that structure in place if you want that smooth flow in life".

  3. Interesting post. I had not thought of this before. I am always trying hard at everything I do. Exercise, food, work, family but I always take on too much and get stressed. I need to make more time to make a proper structure to my week/day and I think I would work more efficacy.

  6. After giving birth to my daughter I realised that the flow it's just a state of mind and I should let go of all that's holding me back. Our foundation is solid and we pick up from there!

  8. Totally agree... some people thinks blogging easy task and few days work.when they dont get success they give up and switch to some other stuffs. Success is a mere result of patience and hardwork. It's really difficult to get into flow without being organised.

  9. Being a blogger myself I really agree with the point you have mentioned for bloggers. And how they should stay focused even when they are not well known as its true people do watch from distance and come to you at the right time.

  12. It is amazing how many bloggers aren't treating their site like a business. I never really saw myself as a blogger, but more as a online magazine or content creator. I think if you shift your perspective to more a professional focus, your entire site gets better. Great tips.

  14. Such a positive, motivational blog post! I have always struggled with maintaining structure in my life however I am working on it - first steps are getting up early in the morning, the next ones are sticking to that every single day! I have always wanted to be a writer, and this post has spurred me on to keep going, even through initial rejection there is always a light at the end of the tunnel :)

  17. Nice way of putting it. I am having a struggle now because I am transitioning my blog. I had always been blogging out of the blue. Now, I want more structure. So after all the articles I did in the past, I am redoing some of them. And it's really tedious!
