Is this your story?

Why is this happening to me_

"I didn't ask to be here"

“Almost 7 months ago I had one of the worst tragedies that a person can go through. My world was turned upside down and I did not know which way was up. In the months that followed just getting out of bed was difficult, much less trying to run a practice and help others. Going into work was a huge task and my practice was suffering. I would lie in bed at night wondering if the office would still be open 6 months from now, if I would ever be financially stable, or should I get a part-time job to help my family. There were many times that I would get to the end of the day and say I quit, I don’t want to do this anymore. I had lost a belief in myself and a belief in Chiropractic. There are no coincidences and God definitely has a plan. In trying to figure out what to do, I thought about a speaker that I heard speak a few years ago and I remembered he said he had been through a similar situation. His name was Dr. Kevin Pallis.”

 How many times are we thrust into circumstances that we didn’t choose? We aren’t asked if these circumstances are okay with us. There is no granting permission or opting in; rather we are thrust into untoward circumstances and then we are forced to deal with the devastating consequences.    

 Examples of these devastating consequences are floods, fires, financial struggles, low confidence, miscarriages, insurance audits, IRS woes, your partner rolling over in bed and saying they don’t love you anymore, and your kids having an illness or special needs.

Why me? I did nothing to deserve this, yet the circumstances remain.

I’ve helped lots and lots of Chiropractors and have seen a common thread that binds us: being wounded and aliveness.

As much as you may protest, they are heads and tails of the same coin. They are like night and day, yin and yang.

I get asked to fix practices a lot by Chiropractors who don’t understand the dynamics of true prosperity. The wealth comes from inside of you, cleaning out the sludge. Think of lotto winners here: within a few years, they will surrender back the money and their relationships and families are shattered.

Without the hero’s journey of being wounded and experiencing despair, hopelessness, and the feeling that you are in too deep, you will never discover aliveness on your own. Instead of moving past the circumstances, we deny them and say it’s not so bad or we suffer in quiet desperation, rather than asking for help.

I’ve helped Chiropractors through all kinds of misfortunes and what I’ve discovered is that when they transcend the circumstances, they become alive again. They are a joy to be around.

There is no longer boredom, modest income, skepticism, negativity, the feeling of ‘is that all there is’, and the casualness that infects so many relationships.

Just because you can’t see the solutions doesn’t mean there are no solutions. You can claim your right to choose freedom: the freedom to transcend the problem and discover sustainable prosperity and joy.

Instead of complaining that yours is the worst problem the world has ever seen (it isn’t!), accept help from a guy who has seen quite a few Chiropractors turn their lives around.
