You and I cannot control what’s going on in the outside environment, but we can control what’s going on between our own two ears.
Transitions. I think one of the most powerful but sometimes scariest things we do as physicians caring for patients, but also mentors to students and younger docs is help them create a compelling future life, and then actually watch it start to unfold right before our eyes.
The decision to move forward. This, unfortunately, still remains a major stumbling block of many. Indeed, the slowness or lack of making even simple decisions, but most especially putting off critical decisions sometimes slows forward progress by weeks, months, and in some very unfortunate circumstances years.
Let’s look outside your practice. Last week we talked about the key parts and your accomplishments in creating a compelling future. Let’s continue that though today with an eye on reality.
I think one of the most powerful but scariest things we do as achievers is create a compelling future life, and then actually watch it start to unfold right before our eyes.
Think about it. If you are a doc, you did this as a student at several levels. In reality, many times.
Recently, especially as the private healthcare environment harshens, I have been asking myself much more often about the real differences between those who are wildly successful, and those who struggle, year after year in practice. Why not you?

I have a short list of reasons for failure, when a prospective client comes to me. The vast majority that ultimately become clients are successful because I personally vet all my clients on some really key issues.
Private practice mandates an entirely additional set of skills. Not instead of but in addition to your healers instincts. And honestly, failure to realize this, or especially educate our students creates every unpleasant and often painful experiences ranging from unrest to bankruptcy.
Let’s take a look at these skills so essential to phenomenal success but so often overlooked. Number one on my list is the ability to organize and sort incoming “stuff” and data. Really. A messy desk (or home or personal life quite frankly) makes for a clouded mind. That’s why extreme and easy organization […]
Are your patients getting mixed messages, and you don’t even know it? Most especially, might there be an incongruence or two with regard to office policies which might not only be slowing you down, but could be like driving your car with the brakes on? Well, if you have more than one staff person, the […]
If things aren’t working for you in any area of life, make a new plan! Today! Remember, the definition of insanity is doing the same old thing in the same old way expecting different results.
A doctor’s natural gifts. That’s what you possess as a healer. You can put patients at ease; physically and quickly abolish their pain and discomfort. Restore hope, and actually save their lives by doing what seemingly is very natural for you. Healers have commonalities in backgrounds and life experiences. Actually, our pathways as doctors of […]
Times are never good or bad, only different.Sage advice from a master, spoken many years ago. I am not sure exactly who or I would give due credit.

And when you’re not with patients, just make sure you are focused on and spending time with the things and people you value most in life.
There is a saying in marketing that there are no failures, only tests.
And so it is in the world we live in right now. What worked so great in practice a while back may not be working so well right now.
What do most people do? Stop trying!
If you have paid attention to Perfect Practice Web in the last 3 years, you have built your chiropractic or practice and indeed your personal life as a fortress, and have been largely unaffected by the events of this year, except to be a sounding board for those who reach out, and want to know why YOU are so happy.
What too many private practice “marketers” forget is just how changeable the landscape is! As a private practice owner it’s never enough to set up any online or social marketing campaign without paying regular (daily) attention.
About 100 years ago, Wallace Wattles warned those aspiring to make better lives for themselves to ignore politicians, naysayers and media. He called his big idea the “Certain Way”. Focussing endlessly only upon your desired outcomes with continuous gratitude being your dominant thought.
