Focused Intent and Action
As many of you know, I'm not only a healthy living coach, but also a bodyworker. Now when I use the term "bodyworker," people are sometimes confused. I use hands-on manual therapy to minimize mechanical stress on people's bodies and, hopefully, resolve issues that would otherwise lead to pain and premature wear-and-tear of the bones, joints, and muscles. It's a specific and focused approach known as neuromuscular therapy.
Last week, as I was working with someone to try and loosen up her shoulder, she expressed appreciation for the approach we were taking. "I appreciate your persistence," she said. "Some really good massage therapists I've been to have given up too soon."
It was an interesting observation. She's right, I am persistent. However her shoulder was the beneficiary of a different factor that day.
What was it? And how can you apply that same factor in accomplishing more of what you want in your own life?
