How to be the GOAT!!

If you have ever wondered why you can’t do what you know you must to lose that extra weight or what you know you must do to keep yourself in shape, this blog might be for you! My own experiences in overcoming my weaknesses has caused me to wonder how the GOATs (Greatest Of All Time) ever got to be the GOATs. Have you ever wondered that? Wouldn’t you like to tap into a little bit of that GOAT magic?

You may have noticed there has been a theme in my blog and podcast messages lately. I have been pushing the idea of motivation that is necessary to succeed. I had also pressed the idea of finding value in chiropractic services prior to posting those motivation messages. Value in Chiropractic ( If you couldn’t tell, I am trying to push a line of thinking for those of you that consume my messages. I want you to be successful in becoming healthier and I want to help motivate you to do so. If you get healthier because of my services in the office or from consuming my content here online, then I have added value to your life. That is my goal and providing that value in your life makes me happy.

You know, if becoming successful was easy we would all be rich, fit, and famous. It doesn’t work that way however and it seems that the hardest part of reaching those goals is the first step. Sadly, we all act like we have plantar fasciitis. Through the years I have learned from study as well as from multiple failures that there are a few things that we need to accept before success starts to come our way.

For the sake of this discussion, let’s define success as a chiropractic treatment plan that gives you what you want as a result of those treatments. The first thing you need to do is accept the fact that success takes time. As I like to say, we all get frustrated watching the spinning blue circle on the computer screen as a program loads. We are all trained to expect instant success. We expect instant “on” with our TV, an immediate load of any program on the computer, and heaven help us if we don’t get our pizza delivered in 30 minutes or less! Because those things DO happen for us, we start to think that one trip to the gym should give us an "overnight" abdominal six-pack. Because of that type of thinking we start to think that one trip to the chiropractor should cure all of our problems or that one pill should get rid of our infection. It doesn’t work that way.

The point is, in order to be successful, you have to be patient. Many of you may remember Tiger Woods “popping” up as a golf superstar years ago. To the casual observer it seemed as if he was an overnight success. That was not true! There are videos of him hitting golf balls off a golf tee on the Merv Griffin TV show when Tiger was 3 years old! Tiger worked hard for a long time before he became famous “overnight”.

The second thing that I have discovered that is present in everyone that is successful is that they believe in the Law of Attraction. Not only do they believe in the Law of Attraction, but successful people make that law work for them. This law is a natural law. That means it wasn’t written by Congress or any other legislative body. It means that the Law of Attraction is like gravity. It just works. We can explain part of it, but all we really need to know is that it works.

The Law of Attraction states that whatever your subconscious mind focuses on, you are automatically attracted to that image. Stated another way, it means that what you see is what you get. An example would be when you get a different car and you drive it home, you are amazed at how many people you see driving the same make, model, and even color car on the road with you!

This is where the Law of Attraction gets interesting. It works in reverse! If you hold onto negative thoughts, guess what you get? Yep! You get negativity and lots of it. Have you ever met that person that when they talk to you, you think of a Eeyore? It seems to them that everyone is out to get them, they get bad grades on tests because the teacher doesn’t like them, or it’s always someone else’s fault they failed.

The point is, that in order to be successful (in this example with a chiropractic treatment plan for your health issue), you have to be patient and you have to focus on the results you want to see happen. You have to believe it will work out in your favor.

This is where the value I had pointed out earlier comes in. True value is gained not from alleviating the pain, but by regaining functions and activities that were lost due to the pain. Successful achievement of that goal was desired by the patient started from clearly relating to the doctor not only where their pain was but also by relating how the dysfunction that resulted from that pain interfered with their life. The chiropractor was able to treat the patient and help them reach their goals. The patient needed to be focused on reaching ALL the goals that were set. The successful chiropractic patient realized that the treatment would take some time and the patient had realistic expectations.

This was a brief overview of the general idea of how to be successful in anything in life. Patience and the correct application of the Law of Attraction are at the root of success in any venture. You will find these attributes as a basis for becoming wealthy, famous, or healthy. Be patient and be positive as you work on your plan to success.
