Do you seek outside success or inside success?
There’s an old Texan saying that characterizes the false appearance of success: “Big hat, no cattle.”
Many are seduced into striving for outside success; that is, the superficial social trappings of achievement. These are often the “things” our culture associates with success, such as the big house, luxury automobile, private schools or impressive title.
However, true success is rarely visible to the superficial observer. It takes far greater discernment to see the intimate marriage, respectful children, financial peace, healthful ease, fearlessness, commitment to a higher purpose, being worry-free, kindness, generosity and other inside accomplishments of success.
Make no mistake about it; patients want to consult a successful chiropractor! Yet, in the same way true health and true beauty come from the inside (not what is purchased and applied to the outside), true, lasting success comes from the inside out.
Lose the hat.
