Naked Emperors & Chiropractic

I’m a big supporter of both The “Canadian Charter of Rights” and the “American Constitution”.  It protects your rights to freedom of speech, to earn a living and freedom of assembly.   Over my years in this business, it has become blatantly apparent to me, that our profession and that of the health care, media and Big Pharma are full of “Naked Emperors”.  Individuals who are pushing their own agenda, violating the rights of others, even attacking them…including me!  If you understand the vaccine issue, then you get my drift.

If you challenge their dogma or try to oppose them, then these naked emperors often covertly try to strike back.  They will often employ their little “Nazi storm troopers” to irritate the hell out of you.  We’ve seen it with governing boards, the CCE, medicine, the government, even the media.

So my question is, “When do your gloves come off?” 

Are you at a point in your life, where you are tired of being afraid or suppressed?  I’m writing this letter to you somewhat pissed!  Because my gloves are off and I’m fighting back!  I would rather go to my grave knowing…that I put up a good fight, that I stood up for my rights and that of chiropractors, and that I didn’t let the naked emperors win.

So here’s some of my advice to those of you who are being challenged.  To those of you who are fighting the good fight.  I’ll send you my bill later!

  1.   Always talk to “friendlies” who may know the issues better than you!
  2.   Find a great law firm….but make sure they have a track record in your particular area of need!
  3.   Know the issue at hand.  Especially the difference between policy, guidelines and standards
  4.   Question everything.  They will shovel a lot of bullshit.
  5.   Take your time and make sure you are ready when you challenge the naked emperors
  6.   Know who your friends are.  They become apparent and stand by your side when shit hits the fan.
  7.   Fight like hell for your rights!!!
  8.   Stay on principle and NEVER, NEVER give up!

Fighting For ChiropracTIC.

The 3 Laws Of Life Mastery…And An Uncomfortable State!


 

One is where things are running smoothly: where all appears all right with your world. Practice is OK, life is comfortable and there are no real challenges today. We are on cruise control.

And we’ve all been there!

The pitfall with this first category is there is often a slippery slope on the other side of comfort.

The second category is best described as going to “hell in a hand basket”. Lots of challenges in health, marriage, practice, finances: where everything that can go wrong, usually does. And we’ve all been there to a certain extent!

The third category is chaotic growth. This is controlled chaos, where there is so much on our plate, that we feel that we’ve fallen into a state of overwhelm. But we all eventually get through it. This is where we often get challenged, where we grow, explore new ideas, release old habits and belief systems and adopt new and sometimes uncomfortable systems.

And I’d like to suggest…this is the category where we need to stay most often, in order to GROW.

 

Years ago, I learned of the 3 Laws of Life Mastery:

  1. Find A Mentor Of A Higher Caliber!   By hiring a coach, using a mastermind or finding a mentor, you will always be mentally or physically stimulated in ways you never thought possible. Like working out, you can only become stronger by pushing your limits. Even today, I have adopted this principle for being coached myself and with my personal trainer for my 6:00 am workouts.
  2. Full Immersion! You can’t learn how to swim unless you fully jump in. This can be the most uncomfortable law to follow, but I guarantee it is the most satisfying. It’s the same feeling you get after a long run, or a grueling workout in the gym. Sore and satisfied!
  3. Time & Repetition! The third law states that overnight successes can take a lifetime. Your full immersion must be about a lifelong desire to continually bath yourself over and over again, in the Kaizen principle. How can I improve my life, work, nutrition by 1% every day…forever.

Follow these 3 Laws of Life Mastery and shift your current paradigm to the next greater level of success.

Dr Mike’s Motivational Minute – Yoda and Dora and Chiropractic…

What does Yoda and Dora, have to do with Chiropractic?  

 

Well, actually nothing! Except, when used as a powerful  learning tool, to teach nine year olds proper hockey defense.

My son Noah has a great coach! His name is Scott: a fire fighter by trade, but an excellent hockey coach by night.   He uses a small playing board which outlines a hockey rink…and his players include little models of Yoda, Dora, Swiper, and Jay-Jay The Airplane. If you have kids, you probably recognize the cartoon characters, and if you don’t recognize them, it’s probably a good thing.

I was observing Scott with his post Halloween brood of 16, nine year olds. He was explaining how to play defense with his little plastic characters. Every one of them was quiet and glued to the play board.

Was it Yoda? Maybe Jay-Jay? Or maybe it was just the fact that coach Scott was using a teaching tool, that was “familiar” to the kids. You could see the look in each child’s eyes, totally glued to the board.

I thought about how this is applicable to Chiropractic, then immediately thought of my Doctor’s Report and Report of Findings.   How everything we do, is “analogous”, or “familiar” to the patients.

I wanted to share with you, a partial list of everything that’s “familiar” to your patients, that you can use in your exam, reports and financials or even when you are talking TIC to a prospect:

  1. Use dental analogies when educating on painless cavities
  2. Time frames for braces works great, when creating analogies for curve corrections
  3. Kinks in a bicycle chain are phenomenal when explaining “Subluxations”  
  4. A low dimmer switch to indicate how patients power can be at half potential
  5. Kinked garden hoses to explain subluxations pressure on nerves
  6. Circuit Breakers to explain how too much stress can such off your breakers (subluxations)
  7. Zombies are great analogies for prospects who need adjusting (got this one from my kids)
  8. Straightening a banana to explain how loss of cervical curve, can affect cord compression.
  9. An elastic around your wrist or finger to explain how pressure affects flow!
  10. A heart attack – explain how you can be “feeling fine” one minute, then dead the next! How you cannot judge your health by how you feel!

Motivational Minute – 2 Magical Words That Can Double Your Practice

Years ago, I use to work with my father in his milk and ice cream business. If you’ve ever worked with your father, chances are, like me, I was his gopher.

I was the worker bee, going for this, and going for that. I learned an invaluable work ethic from him. But something else I learned was his power of persuasion with two magical words.

My dad had the uncanny ability to influence people to buy more than milk and ice cream. And these two powerful words created a lot of passive income for him as well.

It wasn’t until years later, that I heard Dr. John Demartini at a Parker seminar talk about these same two words. So powerful were they, that they could move and persuade patients to the point where they would refer in friends and family. I put them in place the very next week and low and behold they worked.

It’s been discovered that the human mind likes order, it likes comfort, it likes structure…and by using these simple two words it can easily move patients , friends and acquaintances to predictably say “YES!”.

When I started using these words, it became effortless with regards to growth in my practice. And I could apply those words to other lessons in life.

Those two magical words are….”WANT” and “NEED”. Let me put those into context for you. My dad would sell a refrigerator full of milk or ice cream, then back end his sales with the phrase, ” You NEED to buy a refrigerator (or ice cream freezer) to store your product…And I WANT you to have the best! My best recommendation would be the Frigidaire model.”

Shop owners magically followed his recommendations because they respected my father and saw him as a figure of higher authority. As we drove away from the stores, my dad would turn to me and just give me his best Clint Eastwood grin.
The same would apply to chiropractic. By using these two magical words in the sentences, “ I want you to bring in your son for a spinal check-up!”, and ” I need you to tell others about the wonders of chiropractic!“, gets people to move.

Try it in your practice for 14 days. This is how you create a habit through repetition and time. Attach your request with a family or friend gift certificate and watch the magic of these two simple words.

THIS IS WHY we make it a POLICY to CHECK EVERY CHILD! My wife and I ( Dr Lise Cloutier) have been adjusting this autistic child (HOW DO YOU THINK THAT HAPPENED?!) for 3 months…

She’s NEVER WALKED (until NOW!), She’s NEVER TALKED (until now), she’s NEVER focused on anything! (UNTIL NOW!) We give 100% Credit to CHIROPRACTIC! It’s NOT about US. It’s ALL ABOUT THEM and allowing the children to express their 100% INNATE INTELLIGENCE!

STOP with the excuses. Check every child out there! Show your parents this video if they give you smack.
