Old Japanese Proverb – “Fall 7, Stand 8”

Motivational minute 2012

Have you ever failed at something in life!  You know you tried once or twice and give up.  Maybe a new sport, technique in practice, marketing tool.  Could you have imagined if Edison gave up after trying the first 5, 10 or even 20 filaments.  When asked how he felt about failing 1000 times while experimenting for the light bulb, he quipped,

“I didn’t fail 1000 times, it just took me 1001 times to discover it was the carbon filament to make the bulb work!”


Two weeks ago I bought a wake surf board.  I thought it was so cool how these guys could pop up on their boards behind a wake boat and ride a wave without any tow rope.   I watched.  I learned.  I tried 1000 times…and after taking in water in every orifice in my body…I found this “SWEET SPOT” on the wake.

It’s that place of effortless where all your skills from life conjoin to a moment of knowing.  Sort of like adjusting high volume and then you suddenly reside in your zen garden, flowing effortlessly between patients where the magic of your hands takes over.


Life is like that isn’t it?   We try a new art.  We fall!  We get up and then choose; to try again or to quit! It’s at that moment where we differentiate between success and failure.  Those willing to stand up one more time than those who fall.   Those willing to feel the pain, the agony of defeat and those willing to stand on either principle or vision.   Those who crave success have their eye on the prize and not on the naysayers, nor the pundits.


Where are you falling in life or practice?  Where’s your hunger?  Is your vision strong enough to pursue that sweet spot in life?   Or perhaps you’re looking for direction!  Maybe to join a family of like minded, successful people who are driven by that same hunger that you crave.


Prosperity” is all that and more.  To discover my most outrageous  seminar that guides you to every level of success in life, the click the link below and join me November 8,9, 2013 for “Prosperity” and find your “sweet spot”


Until we meet, keep practicing with passion.

Motivational Minute – Lessons Learned From CalJam

Motivational minute 2012



Yup! That’s me at CalJam disguised as “Dr. Merk GSK Lilly, MD” and having a blast!

I get asked to speak a lot around the country, as I build successful million dollar practices; But this time I wanted to do something different…something unique to make a point…that we in the ChiropracTIC world have got it RIGHT! That our profession is truly saving the world, backed by research, testimonials and a whole army of chiropractors who are kicking ass in their communities.

I listened to some amazing and phenomenal speakers. Each, just as passionate and as on purpose as the previous. From Brendon Burchard to Billy Demoss, these guys rocked the house, and delivered some amazing information.

Mike and Fab

Here’s some of what I took home:

1. Establish Clarity

Become clear in who you are and what your mandate in life is. If you were to define yourself with just 3 words…what would they be?

2. Exude Energy

Energy acts like a lighthouse and pulls in more from the universe.
Get excited about who you are and what you are delivering
3. Get on Purpose

When you discover what you are passionate about, then you will find your purpose. Keep asking yourself more and better questions like based on your purpose. When the “Why” is big enough, the “How” will come!
4. Get Productive

Many of us waste time on email and Facebook which is just a response to other people’s agenda. How much time did you waste today and not get to your projects? Ouch!

5. Chiropractic Works

If you don’t believe 100% in the power that made the body, also heals it, then you may find yourself trying to SELL it. When you BELIEVE, then everyone will want to BUY what you OWN!

6. Get Over The Fear

Most everything that you have been worrying about has never materialized…so get over it and walk across the friggin hot coals!!!!

7. Create Success Markers and Success Mandates

Do you have a vision board, goal charts and have you scheduled to goal your productivity with a reward every quarter from your planning pyramid. If you don’t understand what I just said…then you need a coach!

8. Leave a Legacy

When you elevate from the egocentric plane of existence (what’s in it for me) to the spirit-centric plane of being, then you begin to understand your role in the greater picture of the universe. And why doing it for “them”, while leaving your mark for the greater good, becomes soul food to your sense of being.
 Until next time,

Keep practicing with passion,

Motivational Minute – 62 Tips to Get Unstuck in 2013

Motivational minute 2012


I’m amped to do everything in my power to help you kickstart 2013 strong so you install superb habits of the mind, body and behavior.
Today is all about 62 quick, actionable and unforgettable tips that will move you to break free of old patterns, stop being the victim and leap into high gear to get your giant goals done.

This is a list I came upon written by Robin Sharma, Author of the #1 Bestseller “The Leader Who Had No Title”. I thought it was undeniably relevant to share this with everyone in my database.


  1. Believe in your vision and gifts when no one else believes in your vision and gifts.
  2. Start your day with 20 minutes of exercise.
  3. Make excellence your way of being (versus a once in a while event).
  4. Be on time (bonus points: be early).
  5. Be a celebrator of other’s talents versus a critic.
  6. Stop watching TV. (Bonus points: sell your tv and invest the cash in learning and self-education).
  7. Finish what you start.
  8. Remember that your diet affects your moods so eat like an athlete.
  9. Spend an hour a day without stimulation (no phone+no FaceBook+no noise).
  10. Release the energy vampires from your life. They are destroying your performance.
  11. Write in a journal every morning. And record gratitude every night.
  12. Do work that scares you (if you’re not uncomfortable often, you’re not growing very much).
  13. Make the choice to let go of your past. It’s dusty history. And polluting your future.
  14. Commit to being “Mozart-Level Good” at your work.
  15. Smile more (and tell your face).
  16. Do a collage filled with images of your ideal life. Look at it once a day for focus and inspiration.
  17. Plan your week on a schedule (clarity is the DNA of mastery).
  18. Stop gossiping (average people love gossip; exceptional people adore ideas).
  19. Read “As You Think”.
  20. Read “The Go-Getter”.
  21. Don’t just parent your kids-develop them.
  22. Remember that victims are frightened by change. And leaders grow inspired by it.
  23. Start taking daily supplements to stay in peak health.
  24. Clean out any form of “victim speak” in your vocabulary and start running the language of leadership and possibility.
  25. Do a nature walk at least once a week. It’s renew you (you can’t inspire others if you’re depleted yourself).
  26. Take on projects no one else will take on. Set goals no one else will do.
  27. Do something that makes you feel uncomfortable at least once every 7 days.
  28. Say “sorry” when you know you should say “sorry”.
  29. Say “please” and “thank you” a lot.
  30. Remember that to double your income, triple your investment in learning, coaching and self-education.
  31. Dream big but start now.
  32. Achieve 5 little goals each day
  33. Write handwritten thank you notes to your customers, teammates and family members.
  34. Be slow to criticize and fast to praise.
  35. Read Walter Isaacson’s amazing biography on Steve Jobs.
  36. Give your customers 10X the value they pay for
  37. Use the first 90 minutes of your work day only on value-creating activities (versus checking email or surfing the Net).
  38. Breathe.
  39. Keep your promises.
  40. Remember that ordinary people talk about their goals. Leaders get them done. With speed.
  41. Watch the inspirational documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”.
  42. Know that a problem only becomes a problem when you choose to see it as a problem.
  43. Brain tattoo the fact that all work is a chance to change the world.
  44. Watch the amazing movie “The Intouchables”.
  45. Remember that every person you meet has a story to tell, a lesson to teach and a dream to do.
  46. Risk being rejected. All of the great ones do.
  47. Spend more time in art galleries. Art inspires, stimulates creativity and pushes boundaries.
  48. Read a book a week, invest in a course every month and attend a workshop every quarter.
  49. Remember that you empower what you complain about.
  50. Get to know yourself. The main reason we procrastinate on our goals is not because of external conditions; we procrastinate due to our internal beliefs. And the thing is they are stuck so deep that we don’t even know they exist. But once you do, everything changes.
  51. Read “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”.
  52. Know your values. And then have the guts to live them-no matter what the crowd thinks and how the herd lives.
  53. Become the fittest person you know.
  54. Become the strongest person you know.
  55. Become the kindest person you know.
  56. Know your “BIG 5” – the 5 goals you absolutely must achieve by December 31st to make this year your BEST yet.
  57. Know that potential unexpressed turns to pain.
  58. Build a strong family foundation while you grow your ideal career.
  59. Stop being selfish.
  60. Give your life to a project bigger than yourself.
  61. Be thankful for your talents.
  62. Stand for iconic. Go for legendary. And make history.


This is YOUR time. Now’s YOUR moment. Let’s do this! 🙂

Making 2013 The Best Year Ever In Your Practice

Motivational minute 2012

I’m into my 14th year of coaching, and after building some of the highest volume, most lucrative practices in North America, there is a very clear and consistent path, that many of my most successful clients are taking. My mission is to ensure that more chiropractors are successful. The unfortunate side is that most if not all, have not had any business skill training, and are not running their practices like a business.

So let me share with you the 6 distinctions of success that I know can make or break your practice in 2013. Take a look at your current business model and see where you can spruce up your business skills. If you are falling short of your skills, then get you and your team to one of my next “Mastery Training Universities”. Revolution is all about changing your status quo, and launching yourself into the next era of practice and life:

  1. Get Hungry. The most successful clients really WANT IT! Their lives revolve around chiropractic 7/24. They live it, speak it and promote it. They crave success and get their feet on the floor early in the morning.
  2. Know What You Want. Beyond goals, you need to set a solid vision board that becomes your daily success compass. Focus on the main thing…RESULTS, and avoid like the plague, all distractors like naysayers and television.
  3. Work Only With “A” Players. You definitely need CA’s and associates that will drive your practice. If you are babysitting daily, it may be time for change. Hopefully you know and are implementing the “10 Keys To Corporate Culture” , that create an environment conducive for business.
  4. Plan Ahead. The most successful doctors have a 12 month calendar for success. They plan everything from their marketing, team training, performance evaluations, even their vacations.
  5. Exude Energy. Have you ever been mesmerized by a high energy person or speaker? I believe that energy is the key to success as an attractor. In a sense, your patients are also “buying” you. Start your morning rituals with exercise, pure energy nutrition and meditation.
  6. The Starbuck’s Effect. Extraordinary service, outstanding customer care and a desire for constant and never ending improvement in clinical skills and technologies. This is what today’s patients are looking for. If you are losing patients to other clinics, it may be time to change the shag carpet!!!


Follow these 6 simple steps for success in 2013 and watch your practice grow.   Join me at Revolution in Toronto on January 25-26, 2013. Join in a group “Business Audit” and see how you fare to the top clinics in North America and take action steps to stimulate growth in your practice.

Motivational Minute – 21 Ways Rich People Think Differently

Motivational minute 2012
I read this great article by HQ Roosevelt. I wanted to share it with the Chiropractic profession, because it is so applicable in everything we do, our mental focus, our purpose and passion and what we will or will not become.

I hear excuses from doctors daily. I believe whole-heartedly, it’s a simple shift in your mindset that will materialize the difference from being “good” to going “great”.

I’ve pulled 6 points that I KNOW are pertinent and set up a link to the full article. If you’ve ever wondered what makes you different from Richard Branson or Donald Trump, then you’ll love this article.

If you are not taking care of you, you’re not in a position to help anyone else. You can’t give what you don’t have!

The rich are solving problems and taking massive action, while the middle class are lottery and hope mentality thinkers. Remember, your clock is ticking away. What are you waiting for?

The rich are willing to invest in themselves and project their goals, dreams, and ideas into an unknown future, versus the average person who will fall into a state of depression or unhappiness, because they feel there is no future.

The rich find and do what they love and get paid for it. The middle class work because they need the money.

The middle class set low expectations to avoid disappointment, while the rich set high expectations and rise to the occasion.

The rich believe the key to success is “being” something to get rich. They learn from experiences in success and failure, whereas the middle class are fixated on the “doing” and getting immediate results from their actions.

How Discipline Creates Freedom

Motivational minute 2012

“Discipline Creates Freedom!”

Have you heard that quote before?

Have you ever noticed where a lack of structure, organization and sloppy rituals, can lead to utter chaos in your life?

I can recall 3 times in the last 20 years where I got sloppy in life, which of course then, spilled over into my practice… And the outcome was extremely painful! A crash in numbers, income plummeted, and my team got grumpy. I stopped conducting my team meetings, got off my exercise routine, ate like crap and even allowed myself to watch T.V. And…Everything that could go wrong did! I was no longer in control of my own destiny.
During this “undisciplined” time, I had a Christmas party that went way too late into the night. I had to get up at 5:30 am and work for 7:00am. Guess what? I forgot to set my alarm! Woke up at 6:40 am! Scrambled to throw on some clothes in the dark, skipped breakfast and with bed head, ran out the front door to drive in morning traffic….in a snow storm. Lovely! Sitting in traffic, I was mad and felt like I was a imprisoned by my practice and life.
To make a long story short, I arrived at 7:30am to a throng of upset patients in my reception room. My house was lit, hot seats were full , and as I bent over my first patient I realized that my pants were extremely tight. I was such in a hurry, that I grabbed the first pair of pants in my dark closet…that I thought were mine. They were my WIFE’S!

How I got into them, I’ll never know!!! What a morning!

So as I bend over my first patient, I hear this extremely loud RIP! I literally blew out the seat of my pants, in full view of my patients! NICE! 


So what’s the lesson in all of this? Get organized. Get structured. Create discipline. Because discipline creates freedom!

Here’s a few tips to have more flawless days in your world, create more enjoyment and find more freedom through more disciple.


  1. Start your life today by viewing your vision board with everything you want in life. You attract what you mostly focus on.
  2. Create a morning ritual of exercise, meditation and pure nutrition. An “Hour of Power”
  3. Set a priority list the night before that lays out your top 4-5 things to accomplish next day
  4. Meditate for 10 minutes every morning and see your day play out flawlessly.
  5. Avoid negativity…TV, news, people!
  6. End your evening with a state of gratitude for all you have in life!
  7. Kiss and hug your children…I do every night before they retire.
  8. Lay out your clothes the night before, including morning gym gear and you won’t have to search in the dark for your own pants! LOL!
