“The miraculous-inspiration myth would have you believe that creative ideas are flashes of brilliance that suddenly appear out of the blue to a fortunate few. One only has to be in the right place at the right time and presto! Instant creativity and success descends on the lucky recipient. The problem with this myth is if you believe it, nothing will happen. Flashes of brilliance come to those who work for them.
“Any successful artist, writer, inventor or creative professional can attest to the absurdity of waiting to be inspired. First you begin and then the insights appear. Magical insights and solutions to problems are sometimes stumbled on, but they are almost without exception stumbled on by people who happen to be studying the problem.
“There is a term used to describe the behavior of those who waited to be inspired – procrastination.” Michael LeBoeuf, from the book “Imagineering.”
Each client I’ve consulted over the years has been unique. They each lived a different life, had different experiences, losses and wins. The one common thread that went through all of them is that despite or because of their experiences they were willing to help their fellow man to live a better life. They also knew when they couldn’t solve their own practice problems and reached for help from an outside source. Which means they didn’t give up even though they were facing what they thought were insurmountable problems.
Now the desire to seek help can also suffer from procrastination. A Chiropractor can want help but is unwilling to reach out and ask for it. It’s a personal thing. They each have different reasons why they just can’t seem to ask another Chiropractor or consultant to assist them in something they can’t seem to overcome. This of course makes the problem worse because it goes unsolved, collects other problems too it until it all looks like a deep dark hole with the doctor at the bottom of this well looking up.
All it would take is the asking of a question of another, “What can I do to get and keep more new patients?” Getting the correct answer, implementing that answer and observing if the problem resolved. If it did then it would be time to ask another question and another until all your practice problems were resolved to your satisfaction.
I might be that person to ask the question of. Call me at 1-800-789-9931 or my direct line at (727) 445-7842 and find out.
