For others, it’s a breath of fresh air, a season of optimism, and a hope toward achieving new goals.
Whatever it is to you, the sad fact remains that resolutions made just 80 hours ago (based off of when this post was published) fade quickly when juxtaposed with reality.
You see, reality is our wake up call. It’s the alarm that brings us out of a deep sleep, the cold shower that wakes our senses, and the slap in the face that makes all things clear.
It doesn’t discriminate based off of race, sex, or religion. It isn’t interested in class, income or education. And, it doesn’t give a rip if you’re the most gifted chiropractor in the world.
For some chiropractors, reality brings fear — fear of the future, fear of the unknown, fear of failure, and even fear of success.
However, what few realize is that reality can be changed.
For example, Norman Vincent Peale once said that what the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. He also said that if you change your thoughts, you’ll change your world.
As an entrepreneur and business owner, it’s up to you to change your world. Your patients deserve it, your community needs it and your family depends upon it.
So, my questions are …
- What steps have you taken in 2010 to change your world?
- Do you have written, tangible goals?
- Have you established a principle-centered, business-grounded game plan?
- What strategies do you have in place to advance your business, your finances, your profession?
To help you with the aforementioned, read the following two passages of Scripture:
Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people perish; but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Habakkuk 2:2 And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.
Did you grab hold of the message in those two verses?
Number One: If you don’t have a vision, you’ll perish.
Number Two: If you do have a vision, WRITE IT DOWN!
So, whatever your vision is for 2010, write it down. Once it’s written, read it often and out loud. There is incomprehensible power in the spoken word.
Now, for many of you, this post has caught you off guard. You’re wondering what does all of this have to do with social media and blogs.
Well, if you stick with me, I’ll show you. A foundation has to be set before a building can stand. My intentions are to set the proper foundation personally so that we can erect strong walls professionally.
Until next time, Happy New Year!
