Your Most Costly Habit, Episode #123
This sphere is the chiropractic entrepreneur, your business, and this bridge is to the rest of the world. Here’s the thing, the chaos really isn’t out there. Is just looks like it is. Chaos is where? In you. And your business is the opportunity to bridge that gap between a world that looks chaotic. And when you organize your business and your thinking you are having a global impact that’s not just us sitting around looking at lava lamps and meditating and going, “We’re going to change the world one vibe at a time.”
We’re going to change the world a lot vibes at once.
So, that’s what your business is. Whatever you thought it was before we’re downloading a new virus that’s not what your business is anymore. Your chiropractic business is this bridge between the world of chaos and your part in that is to get organized, to get clear on what you do, to get clear on that.
Just like health your business is natural in its growth. We talk about businesses that are infants, businesses that are adolescents and businesses that are mature. Most chiropractic practices are stuck in adolescence. Some of them never get out of the terrible toos – we’re too busy, we’re too blah, blah, blaah – the terrible toos. They never get out of it, they stay in adolescence and then get burned out. If you’re burned out it’s because you’re not letting the thing grow and change with you. Self-developing. Self-healing, your business heals itself. Have you ever had a bad thing happen and your business heals?
Guess what? Interference is getting in the way. It could be systems, could be you, could be you’ve never trained your chiropractic assistants because a chiropractic office is a school where your people with will, drive and determination come to learn about life and to have an opportunity to do something ordinary and make it extraordinary which creates meaning. Do you feel like that?
Your business is an organic process. People don’t need to grow your business, you need to grow with it. You need to work on yourself and your business at the same time. What a beautiful, beautiful thing and that’s the whole idea here, growth is natural. How big does a tree grow? It throws down roots, it builds all the leaves it needs, it grows to the genetic height it’s designed to grow. We’re the only sentient organism in the universe, that I can see, that interferes with its own growth, and therefore, you interfere with your business’ growth.
Dr. Sea was showing you this morning about the flow experience. You want to push yourself this week? Stack an hour. Stack an hour and see where your business’ stretch marks are. Grow some purple striae. I want you to feel this.
You’re trying to control. Your habit of control is the most costly habit you have. Control is your most costly habit . . . and it’s an illusion anyway.
