B.J. Palmer was a great businessman, promoter of Chiropractic, a world class salesman, a riveting speaker, but he didn’t become those things, he was those things and once he had discovered his purpose to help as many people as possible reach an optimum state of health, he had an outlet for all these innate abilities.
Purpose is the driving force that allows you to overcome your barriers to promoting yourself and your practice. To release these abilities you have to discover the purpose you formulated as a young man or woman and it is often a general statement that you want to help others or to be a doctor or to heal those around you. I’ve seen this many times when working with clients. Their purpose was there before the talents appeared. I can give you an example of my two year old granddaughter. She’s going to be an entertainer, or public speaker or teacher and possibly all those things rolled up into one. Last week she got up on a stage, looked for the mic and when one wasn’t there she improvised with a mic cable and just started to sing and to perform. You can watch her natural talent on my FaceBook page. She didn’t hesitate and she knew what she was doing.
The only way she would lose this talent is if her family members or teachers told her she had to be quiet, well behaved, and don’t be outspoken. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this stop a chiropractor or healthcare professional who had all the talent in the world, but it was unexpressed. Imagine telling your child never to speak to strangers. Now as an adult he or she would have to talk to strangers in order to introduce new patients to Chiropractic. Well as long as that person held onto the idea of “Never speaking to strangers,” he or she would be a failure.
So have a look and see if you have any self imposed barriers that are limiting your expansion and success. Contact me and I will help you if you are having any difficulty in this area.
