“To return us to what matters when we forget”

 Is this your story?

Focus on what matters

“I want to thank you for being my coach and mentor. I am writing this to you, not as a TNR member, but as a woman who has been deeply touched. I have been able to look back on past and reoccurring events in my life at a whole new level and have finally received discipline and consequences from you that are helping me to change and move forward.”

 With all of the current mass hysteria blinding us to what really matters, along with our past personal baggage that we insist on dragging around with us, it’s easy to retreat into our pasts and stay there.

While imprisoned in your past, you can’t grow and certainly can’t navigate the curve balls life will throw your way.

There’s no future in doing the same things over and over and expecting things to improve.

My practice is just average, I’ve tried quite a few things; I guess that’s just the way it is.  Besides, I’ve got kids to take care of.

 My marriage is just okay. I mean I don’t get abused, I’m dutiful, but I’m not loved. I serve a role, am a workhorse, and see to the needs of everyone else, but my needs are completely ignored as if they don’t matter.

 My relationship with others is tentative and defensive. I’ve always been this way. I don’t like people that much but I need new patients to make a living. They always seem like they want something from me and when they get it, they dine and dash, and then they’re gone.  

With more and more distractions, isolation, outlawing of joining with others, and being punished (from censoring on social media to having the board of health shut your office down) for thinking on your own, we are adrift in what doesn’t matter.

 Doctors are being told what to do and how to care for practice members by laypeople and politicians. What has happened to our principles?

It’s like an invisible slime has descended upon our earth and covered our eyes to goodness and doing what’s right. It has also infected our hearts and now praises isolation, squealing on each other, and homogenizing our thoughts, income, and beliefs. Much like countries still burdened with socialism.

For the first time in 20 years, I have seen young practitioners that simply don’t want to practice. Instead, they want to sit on the sidelines and do research, have sophisticated software systems, play on social media, or have electronic billing systems that take their attention away from caring for practice members. They seem to be interested in anything except the Chiropractic adjustment. They also love to work for someone because they don’t have the skills or character to start an office from scratch or to grow an existing one.

 They don’t have the connection, love, or compassion to help people and put their own fears and interests above them. Doing DOT physicals and Covid testing are socially accepted ways of retreating from having a practice of meaning and purpose.

Today, playing small is a way of life for far too many Chiropractors.

 As much as underperforming Chiropractors want to believe you can’t ‘knock it out of the park today’, the reality is YOU CAN!

I help Chiropractors get back to what matters. This new direction not only helps the obvious, the economics, the debt levels, but surprisingly overlaps marriage, kids, and home life.

If you are serious about 2021 being your best year ever, reach out to me and I will show you in minutes that it’s not as complicated as you’re making it.

I’ve helped more than 1,000 DCs, I can help you!
