The Wisdom of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

One cannot lead a life that is truly excellent without feeling that one belongs to something greater and more permanent than oneself.” Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Of all the virtues we can learn no trait is more useful, more essential for survival, and more likely to improve the quality of life than the ability to transform adversity into an enjoyable challenge. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

Take a moment and think about these two quotes.  What are your internal thoughts?  If you haven’t read Csikszentmihalyi’s book, Flow, I suggest you pick it up on Amazon or your local bookstore.  It’s a fantastic read that really dives into the internal state of a high-performers mind.
