What has been the defining moment in your life?
When you think back over the years of childhood, adolescence, college, courtship, marriage, family and practice, what event or circumstance prompted you to draw a line in the sand and make a personal vow? Do you know what it was?
This is helpful to know about oneself. It explains many things about our life's trajectory. Our preferences, avoidance's and gifts.
I often hear chiropractors say, "I didn't choose chiropractic. Chiropractic chose me."
Really? How exactly?
Instead, my guess is that delivering chiropractic care and helping relieve the suffering of others somehow advances, fulfills or redeems something deep in your soul. It would be healthy to know what that is. Spend some time this week mining your memories and exploring the motives of your career choice. Why not medicine? Or dentistry? Or physical therapy? Knowing this about ourselves is important. Perhaps essential.
