Principles For Success, Health, and Happiness
- UP: Understood Principles plus Unified Procedure equal Unlimited Patients
- My Success, Health, and Happiness (SHH) are determined by what I think, the way I act, and how I feel.
- My Inner Success (SHH) is not a matter of adding anything, an acquisition; it is purely a ridding, a shedding process
- I will be free of negative emotions as soon as I stop justifying and defending them.
- What I see in the universe sees me.
- My level of inner success is determined by the amount of truth I can take without getting angry or upset.
- It is impossible for me to begin to learn what I think I already know, or to accept a solution to a problem I don’t feel I have.
- Negative feelings towards others punish me on the spot, for I am a chained slave to anyone I dislike.
- There is no philosophy by which I can do a thing if I think I cannot.
- From this moment on: a. I will not be immersed in negativity because I will always embrace positiveness in some way. b. I will not be baptized in pessimism because I will be bathed in optimism. c. I will not prattle in my conversation about problems because I will meditate on solutions. d. I will not be consumed with what is wrong in the world because I will be saturated with the good in the world.
- I know that 99% of failure is self-inflicted, so “if it is to be, it is up to me. “
- I will anticipate the good-even during the bad.
- I will reflect with joy on all past events and I will see blessings in them.
You like being around people and can see something good in everyone.
As a CA we often have practice members that aren’t at their best. They are stressed, hurting and subluxated. We have to learn to love unconditionally. It’s when people are subluxated that they need us the most. A kind word, a gentle touch and most of all encouragement to know that they will be better soon. Be patient with them, and guide them on their journey to better health. Even the grumpiest practice members eventually change into your favorite patients!
In an effort to impress, we overlook the simple things…and you’d be surprised how important THESE simple things are.
Check out these easy to implement 7 Simple Chiropractic Office WOW Strategies can make all the difference:
- Clean windows – Like Walt Disney said, “Clean CLEAN windows”…this means to clean them (both sides) BEFORE they get dirty. Maybe Every Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon?
- Proper lighting – “Full spectrum” bulbs do wonders. Make sure that ALL your bulbs are changed over to “full spectrum”…especially any fluorescents.
- Nice looking waste paper/trash baskets – Ideally keep them out of site as best as you can…and yes, empty them BEFORE they get full. Maybe 25% full max before they are emptied.
- Smell – Find a scent and stick with it. It will become associated with your practice. Make sure it is in every room and isn’t overbearing. Something very fresh. Nothing floral or fruity.
- Clean carpets and walls – Like windows, they should never be dirty. Also make sure your colors are calming yet professional.
- Front Desk – Is yours uncluttered?…Or is it full of signs, business cards, brochures, plants, supplements, etc. Keep it clean and clear of clutter. Same goes with whatever a patient can see from the front desk. (Or from anywhere in the office for that matter. Walk around, what do they see?)
- Artwork/Pictures – Everything matted and framed. No posters! One picture per wall. Ideally less is more and other than maybe in the consult or report room, NO patient education on walls. You see it as education, THEY view it as defensive persuasion. As a CA we often have practice members that aren’t at their best. They are stressed, hurting and subluxated.
