Are You Giving Away Gold In Here?

A couple of days ago a patient I hadn’t seen for a while greeted me as I walked into the room, then said, “Hey, with all those people out front, I was wondering if you were giving away gold in here?” We both laughed for a moment, then I said to him, “Yes we are! The ‘gold’ is your health. That’s why people come. That’s why you’re here, isn’t it?”

“Yeah, you bet!”

It may seem like we are “giving away” something valuable, but what we are actually doing is helping people find the gold (their health) that was already there, hidden inside themselves.

What a great thought! If we each truly saw our health, our vitality, and our well-being for what it is worth, what value would we give it? I bet we would give it higher priority in our life than we sometimes do. Most people wait until they “hit the wall”, injure themselves, or get sick before they give their health a high priority. It certainly is an individual choice, but what many have experienced is that once you get well it’s much easier to maintain that state and prevent a back slide (no pun intended) than to wait for the next crisis to strike, and have to start the process of healing all over again. It is quite simple, actually.

At the start of a new year, we are presented with the opportunity to re-order our priorities on what really has value in our lives. It is a time to focus our heart, the source of motivation, and our mind, the source of discipline, in those areas of our life we wish to change, sustain, or enhance. Instead of starting out by writing a list of resolutions, a list of things you think you should be doing, begin by writing out your purpose for doing these things. Make it fun and rewarding! This provides the motivation you need to discipline (that nasty “D” word) yourself to take action in these areas of your life. Then you can outline the steps and set the necessary priorities to develop a plan to bring your vision into reality. Find the purpose that will motivate you, but remember to make the changes fun!

My staff, Donna, and I are excited about the opportunities we will have this next year to help you, your family, and our community “find the gold within”.


Chances are there is a chiropractor in your community who is “giving away gold” or is there to help you find the gold that is already hidden inside of you.
