I returned home Sunday evening from a New Beginning’s event in New Jersey with that larger-than-life feeling I often have after attending a powerful chiropractic weekend. For those of you that have heard me speak, I frequently talk about being in tune with the universe and how I particularly become aware of this when I am traveling to and from chiropractic events. Once again, I had that “feeling.”
By no accident, this week I was talking about music and its relationship to the nervous system. “Be careful as to what you listen to” I said, as music (and the lyrics behind music) gets hardwired into our nervous system. While I had the feeling some event would occur in the next few days directly or indirectly related to my talk, I was not sure exactly what that event would be.
How do you feel when you come home from such an event? To tell you the truth, I often come back to the office and within hours begin to tell myself that I cannot possibly live up to the lofty thoughts and ideas I discovered during the weekend. The ideas like, “I’m going to see 20 new ones today” or “we are going to change the whole office.” I know that is in direct contradiction to how I am supposed to feel, but that is what often happens.
Somehow, and rather fortunately, I am becoming more frequently aware of this behavior. I guess what happens is that I have fallen into the same habits so many times that I begin to get comfortable with it. This is probably what a lot of chiropractic coaches call getting “pumped up.” You go to an event, get all excited, come back to the office full of energy, and that same first Monday morning patient comes through the door. Before you know it, you’re right back where you were before you left for the weekend.
It’s not that great things don’t happen, I think it’s more along the lines that I don’t often enough expect them to happen (or that they won’t happen for me). One of the biggest lessons I had this past weekend was to stop having limitations (Shaquille O’Neil says it’s not a lesson if you repeat it). Why do we put such limitations on ourselves? I don’t mean just limitations in care and our expected results, I noticed in my life I’ve set up all kinds of unnecessary bars and obstacles that really serve no purpose. What was the point?
As an example, I had a reminder of this just last week in the office. We have a new person in the shipping department and we usually prepack about four to six products per day in anticipation of products to be sold for that day. Ever notice how right on this can be? You set up two new patient files and how many new patient’s do you get that day? Two. Set up 6 new files, and how many new patients do you get that day?
So without really giving it much thought, I typically would just see that four to six packages were prepared in the office daily for the next day. Well my new staff member comes from a whole different level of thinking than I do. After telling her that we nearly always ship the same amount of packages daily that we have prepared she replies, “why don’t we prepare 50 of them?” To that I quickly replied, “50?, We would never sell 50 in one day.” What did I do? I created a limitation, and I have been manifesting that limitation in my daily life.
On Tuesday she comes in and instead of preparing the amount I had suggested, she prepares an entire shelf full of products. You probably already know what happens… we sell nearly all of them. The bar was raised and I was introduced to a new level thinking.
I know a got away from the “music” thing I was talking about. I’ll get back to that later in the week. We had something very exciting happen (musician related) in the office.
I don’t have the answers yet but I am working on it. I realize that for some, 50 new ones in a day would be cake. They can manifest it in their headspace. This goes back to the, “what we think about-we bring about” concepts so often talked about at seminars. So I am LIVING IT LARGE for as long as I can hold out. Think Think Think. I think I’ll get a custom table built for the pro NBA players I am about to adjust.
