F#%k Healing

[Post by Cliff Harvey]

The body is always involved in a wonderful dance of destruction and construction. 
This is part of it's beautiful process of working around a point of balance.

I so often talk with people at my workshops and in clinical practice who have locked themselves in to a process of a 'healing journey' that they never end up escaping from. 

The question I ask them is: "When are you going to stop 'healing' and start LIVING?"

The healing 'journey' is over.
Now is the time to live!

Be Happy

[Post by Cliff Harvey]

Anything else in life that we want to achieve, we go through a process of finding out how we do it and then go ahead and start working on the activities that will allow us to achieve.
Unfortunately when it comes to happiness people have fooled themselves...or been fooled into believing that happiness is something that happens to them. But that is complete horse shit.
Happiness is not something that happens to us. It is not something that external factors cause.
It is a state of being.
It is a higher set point of consciousness that we can create through intention, practice and coaching.

So my question is: Are you truly happy?

If not; what are you doing about it?

Daily Intention: Do The Work

[Post by Cliff Harvey]

We seem to be constantly inundated with calls to action to get rich quick, to not work, to avoid work, to do the least amount get ripped abs in only seconds a day!...
And while I am all for efficiency, there is a fine line between being efficient and simply being lazy. And if you're not getting the results you want, it may well be time to look at what you're doing and ask yourself:  "Am I doing enough?, am I working hard enough? I doing THE WORK?"
Because if you're not doing the critical mass of work required for whatever it is you want to achieve, quite obviously you'll never achieve the joy that comes with success.

When did work become something to be avoided?
I guess when we decided to work simply for money, and not work for pursuits that fuel our passion and purpose.

What happened to working hard (and sometimes long) to strive towards valuable goals, and enjoying a hard day's work in a pursuit that you love?

If you want to be strong you HAVE to get in the gym and lift some serious weight.
If you want to write a book you HAVE to get the critical mass of words on paper.
If you want to have a PhD you need to spend some serious time at Uni!

But if it drives YOUR life of passion and purpose it's worth it.

Start today.
Do the work.

Wrest Now.

[Poem by Cliff Harvey]

Just for tonight I will hold you tight,
in my arms.
And my heart will try,
but yours has loosed it's grip

(Your grip was never very strong.)

Morning I will wrest,
to throw dust to the wind.
Fragments of an aborted love.

Unborn, never whole, lost
But for a chance.

(And chance is a vain hope.)

Swing for the Fences with Intentions!

[Post by Cliff Harvey]

Due to poor confidence, self worth and security we often set not just goals, but intentions that are ' safe' that are 'normal'...
But believe me; safe and normal sucks if it's not leading you closer to the life of your dreams!
I always counsel my clients to dream big, intend big and shoot for the stars when setting goals and intentions.

When you shoot for the stars the worst that can happen is you hit the moon.
