Monday Morning Motivation
Adjusting patients is not your purpose.
It's one of the most common unhelpful beliefs shared by chiropractors who believe that the highest calling of a chiropractor is to adjust as many people as possible.
More likely, adjusting patients is a means to help advance or pursue your higher purpose. Do you know what that is? Knowing equips you to avoid the trap of measuring your worth by how many people you touch.
If you've been seduced by this easiest of metrics, what number do you have in mind? 10,000? 100,000? A million?
It comes down to choosing between going wide (superficial) or going deep (intimate).
Going wide is often the first approach, measuring one's self-worth by focusing on how many patients are seen in a day, week or month. Yet, the shallowness of these relationships eventually take their emotional and spiritual toll as practice becomes mechanical, hollow and increasingly unfulfilling.
