I recently went on The Phoenix Experience run by the amazing Daniel Burgess. My friend Dano and I, hiked up cathedral ranges to see the sun rise at 530am in the morning and contemplate our lives. However, it was so much more than that. The hike was challenging, the gradient often steep. My mind went through such a journey, from "this isn't so bad" all the way to "damn why did I choose to do this? But when we reached the top, the view was so breath taking. The sunrise and fog creating an inland sea was just so picturesque. The elation of achievement broke down our egos and then began the facilitation by Daniel. The freedom the mind receives when the body is content is a feeling many rarely achieve and those who do, easily forget in their day to day. The universal truths about ourselves come to the limelight and what I discovered was the distinction that I truly needed for where I am in my life at the moment. PERSEVERANCE! This was an amazing experience that was so much more than a hike. Thank you Daniel for the amazing experience!
One of the coldest July days on record up at this place. Picked up at 4.20 am, start the hike at 6.20, up top about 7am. Probably only 1 or 2 degrees when this shot was taken.
So what the hell was I doing?
To be a better person in my own head, at home with my family and at work with my clients and customers I believe in doing some personal development coaching. Daniel Burgess from The Phoenix Experience was my guide and coach on this trip. Taking me out of my normal place, putting a pause button on life and putting me through a challenge to open up and look deeper into the blocks in life that I need to pass to go to another level to serve all around me (including me)
There was a lot talked about and in the process Daniel coached me on the areas he believes I am in need of a re Focus, and I agreed.
So the was part is done, the mountain and working out the next steps. Now to be consistent in the next steps and work on my actions in my self and also the business's.
So I'm still a work in progress but the next few steps on the stair case have been revealed.
It's your time.
