Our thoughts create our reality…a positive mindset is imperative.  Developing a positive mindset is a powerful life strategy, which allows us to achieve whatever we desire.  What is your self-talk like? Is it positive? Is it encouraging? After all you are your own #1 fan…cheer yourself on! Daily positive affirmations and positive thinking will allow you to develop the positive attitude necessary to strengthen your inner power! Speak to yourself as though it is and watch it manifest! Be limitless!

Remember for Goals: Think it and ink it. Affirm it daily.  Believe it and achieve it.  The world is yours.  The only thing standing in your way is the six inches between your ears.  So, clear your head space and go for it! “The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them. –Denis Watley”

Johann Goethe said, “Whatever you do or dream, you can do—begin it.  Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.” We are in the forefront of healthcare…we have to step up and be bold.  WE need to help others to see outside the box.  We need to create a wellness movement. As Bob Hoffman said, “Leaders create a culture around their goals and involve others in it.” Live the wellness dream…be bold and powerful.  You are a genius.

Say what you need to say, lyrics from a John Mayer song, are so applicable in practice.  Think how often we hold back in fear, limited by our own self-talk and ego.  Lets step up and start fresh today…say what you need to say.  As BJ said, “We never know how far something we think, say or do will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.” Speak the truth…they will hear you!

Leave it all outside the office.  It’s so easy to bring our lives into practice…but that doesn’t serve you and it definitely doesn’t serve the patient.  So, walk in to your office with a clear head and a focus on serving.  Stomp out your personal life and get laser focused.  Your personal life will be there when you close the doors…you can pick it up on your way out tonight  They need you…show up big!!!

The highest vibration that we can experience is LOVE.  Since chiropractic was founded on tone; as chiropractors understand the importance of balanced vibration.  Love must be in our core.  First, we must love ourselves.  It is the love we have for ourselves that allows us to freely and deeply love others.  When was the last time you told yourself how much you loved you? When you have love in your core it emanates and is felt by those around you.

When we come from a servant’s heart we better serve our patients and community.  Make this your prayer/motto: “Lord, make me an instrument of Your Peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.” (–St. Francis of Assisi) Have an attitude of gratitude.  Listen and love.  Serve well.

Think positively and masterfully because our thoughts become our reality! Two great quotes come to mind: “You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. –James Lane Allen Nick” and “It isn’t what you have or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.  It is what you think about. –Dale Carnegie” So, where will your thoughts lead you.  Change your thoughts starting now! Remember, what you think about you bring about.

Integrity is being congruent between what you think, say, and do.  Be a role model for your practice members and community, become a wellness expert and live a wellness lifestyle. Lead by example; exercise utilizing weights and cardio, eat foods that nourish and support the body, and think positive thoughts! Keep it simple: “Be Fit.  Eat Right.  Think Well.” Live consciously and with congruency.  “When you have contradictions you get destruction and the amount of destruction is based off the severity of the contradictions. – Ayn Rand”

Each day when we wake we are given two options: to remain comfortable or to get uncomfortable. So, often we get scared to grow because with all growth there is pain so we remain in our “comfort zone” With growth comes new opportunities and an expansion of our knowledge. Remember, “Comfort comes as a guest, lingers as a host, and stays to enslave. – Sid Williams” So, today I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and fall in love with being uncomfortable.

Purpose and Passion are keys to our success. Our purpose is what we were created to do.  What is your purpose? Define it and write it down.  Passion is the energy that propels us.  It moves us.  What is your passion? Dig down deep and find that one thing that gets you going.  Own it and cherish it.  Use it as a driving force to remind you that EVERY day you must be 100% present and show up big.

Three words: Present Time Consciousness.  Be present in the moment.  When you are with patients you are with patients, when you are doing CEO time be the CEO, when you are home be at home, etc.  Live in the moment and let the momentum carry you.  Being fully present allows you to gain more from the experience and most importantly give more of yourself.

In life, he/she who experiences the most wins! It’s important that we constantly improve and grow; with change comes growth.  When we stop growing…we start dying.  Commit today to learn something new everyday and constantly expand yourself.  Robin Sharma say, “ Live your life in such a way that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.”

It is inevitable that we will make “mistakes” in life and that we will “fall short of others or our own expectations”. It is important to realize it is not the mistakes that we make in life that define who we are; it’s how we deal with them that truly reveals who we are as people. It’s not how far you fall but how high you rise after the fall.  As Joe Dispenza said, “Never feel guilty about anything you have created, good or bad.” It’s all part of the journey.

Who do you choose to spend your time with? You are a mirror image of the company that you keep.  Remember the 5 closest people to you have the most influence over you!! Choose wisely…and remember the laws of attraction…you will attract into your life the EXACT people that you want there.

Educate. Educate. Educate.

Well-educated people ALWAYS make better decisions.

Success requires dedication and determination.  While the road to success is not always an easy one you must remember that, “Pain is temporary and quitting is forever”.  You have two choices in regard to pain in any area of life: The pain of discipline or the pain of regret.  It is possible to achieve anything that you set your mind to if you truly want to.  Remember it is not a “have to” but a “get to”. Press on!!!

Actions speak louder than words.  Do you exemplify the wellness lifestyle? Do you lead by example? Remember it’s important to workout regularly, eat foods that fuel your body, think positive thoughts, and get regular adjustments and nervous systems check ups.  Remember, who you are speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say! It’s time to step up and be the leader in the wellness movement!!

To give and receive is to be blessed.  Life is about giving; giving of yourself, your gifts and talents.  Learning to stretch yourself for the sake of others.  Giving is not always financial; it can be the warmth of a smile, a kind word, or going out of your way for someone else.  And remember that while giving is important is also important to receive with gratitude from God and those around you.  May abundant blessings fall on you and yours this holiday season.

With each adjustment and each conversation of every day, remember, “We, Chiropractors, work with the subtle substance of the soul.  We release the prisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force, that emanates from the
mind and flows over the nerves to the cells and stirs them into life. –BJ Palmer”.  You have a moral obligation to tell the world what you know.  Because, you know something they don’t know.  Go out and serve your community.

When was the last time you re-evaluated your attitude? What’s it like? Is it positive? Does it allow you to shine? Do you light up a room when you walk into it or out of it? To keep my attitude in check: weekly I sit down and review and write a list of all my blessings.  I give thanks for those I have received and pre-thank for the one’s I am going to receive.  This task allows me to remain in an attitude of gratitude, allowing my inner beauty to really shine.  So, sit down this week and “check your ‘tude dude”!!

Your degree of innate potential is between you and your Creator.  What interferes with that potential is between you and your Chiropractor. Seek out the subluxation whether physical, chemical, or emotional and correct it, then allow innate to take over and restore homeostasis.

Life is a process. It is a journey we travel that enables us to grow, which usually stretches us outside of our comfort zone. The discomfort we feel with growth often scares us and then driven by fear we rush through the process.  Rushing through the process still gets us through but we often miss the finite lessons along the way.  So, be still and allow the process to happen.  Lean on friends, family, inner strength, and prayer.  Remember, it is as it should be.  Being still will allow you to truly shine and grow.

Life is what you focus on.  Your thoughts create your reality. What you think about you bring about.  Do your thoughts expand or contract your vibration (ie feeling or emotion)? Cleaning up your headspace will alter your external environment.  Remember the intricate balance between feeling and function if we go solely by feeling we may be surprised at the functional outcome.  Shift your thoughts and SHIFT YOUR LIFE.

“An eye for an eye, makes the whole world blind. –Mahatma Ghandi”.  Look at the world differently as we roll into 2010, especially in the aspect of forgiveness and thankfulness. Realize that hurting people hurt people and that it easier to forgive than to harbor anger or take revenge. Before you fall asleep at night simply say, “I forgive.  I am thankful.” You will wake renewed and ready for the day!

To blog or not to blog?

In regards to blogging, there was really no question.  I knew that upon turning 30, it was time to start many new and exciting chapters in my life and among the new experiences for me would be blogging.   After reading a few friends and colleagues blogs I was amazed by their knowledge, awed by their thoughts, provoked to expand myself beyond my own comfort zone, and motivated to begin my own blog to share my heart, mind, and passion.

So, here I sit on January 1, 2010 writing my first blog with millions of thoughts berating my mind eager to appear on the screen that sits in front of me.  For my first blog, I decided I would begin, simply, by stating the purpose of my blog: “To Ignite”.  To ignite what you might ask? Well, the answer to that question lies in what is to come.  I don’t know that that is something I can decide or dictate but rather something that will simply unveil itself as you read.

It is my intent that my blog emulates my spirit, emotions, thoughts, and passion as I share the intricate working of my mind with you. Together through this process we will grow and reach new heights, feeling stretched outside of our comfort zones and compelled to rise up.  Enjoy!

“You never know how far reaching something you think, say or do today, will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.” -BJ Palmer
