Dr. Martha’s Monday Morning Motivational
Healthcare is all the talk in America today and people are scared. Americans are beginning to realize that the government is struggling to find an answer to the health care crisis it is in the midst of. People realize that they need to find their own solution to this huge problem. They are eagerly seeking knowledge to create a game plan for both them and their family. This is a prime time to increase the level with which you are educating your community.
The more talks I do for other doctors around the US the more I realize how hungry people are for the knowledge of chiropractic care and the wellness lifestyle everywhere. I have come to the conclusion that we are one of the few professions who actually educate on TRUE health and wellness and not just quick fixes or band-aids. Each time I speak to another doctor’s office the guests of those patients are so thankful that they were invited to the event and even more gracious I gave them an alternative.
Americans are highly intelligent…they realize that the way we are going is not in the right direction and that as of now the future looks gloomy. Every time they turn on the TV another drug is being released and another is being recalled. They hear about our increasing debt and that medicare is now projected to run out by 2017. The problem isn’t that they aren’t aware of the problem but that they are in need of a solution.
That’s where we come in…wellness and chiropractic is the solution. And, quite frankly the only solution that I know exists. As chiropractors we have to step up. People are literally DYING to hear what we have to say. The wellness and chiropractic lifestyle just makes sense. The question is are you willing to step up your game?
Personally, I have upped my game. I have personally asked each of my patient to help me by educating their friends and loved ones. I have asked my staff to join me and they have graciously accepted. As a team we have increased our events calendar and daily state our affirmations. As a team we are dedicated to make sure that we do everything possible to make sure our community is educated. I created a functional marketing and education company to create clothes that allow individuals to be walking billboards of wellness. I am educating not only my community but the communities of many of my colleagues, through dinner talks and wine nights. This is just the beginning and I don’t plan on stopping here. Will you join me?
I am asking each and everyone of you to step it up. Believe me you will be accepted with open arms. Put it in perspective…an event with 20 non-patient guests means the possibility of 20 less flu shots, 20 less prescriptions, 20 less potential early deaths…..and 20 more first adjustments which means 20 more lives fully expressing my innate. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy what does? And why limit yourself to 20?
In conclusion…I am asking you to step it up. I am available with ideas and I know many colleagues feel the same so just ask. Serve more and save more it really is that simple.
Love. Laugh. Adjust.
