I commit to EDUCATING MYSELF every day

Some people we recommend following (and trust us there are many more but 15 is a great start)
All these individuals can better your focus and strategies on philosophy, marketing, communication, practice management and more.
I commit to being THE MOST POSITIVE person I know
This one tends to be tough in Chiropractic as the days are long and the naysayers in and out of the profession can get to you after awhile.
But how is that #FML attitude doing for you?
Here are some ways to stay and keep positive:
Stress builds up. Negative thoughts about just about anything start to well up and I feel like my own personal power decreases.
If you slow down just for a few minutes – even if you have to force it by walking, talking and eating slower – then my mind and body calms down too. It becomes easier to think things through clearly again and easier to find the optimistic and constructive perspective.
Have a positive support group
It’s important to have a positive support group to help each other through difficult times. Surrounding yourself with positive people will help you stay positive when in a negative situation. There are plenty of negative people out there—avoid them! Their negative attitudes will only bring you down and be counterproductive to what you are trying to achieve by practicing positive thinking.
Two psychologists, Dr. Robert A. Emmons of the University of California, Davis, and Dr. Michael E. McCullough of the University of Miami, have done much of the research on gratitude. In one study, they asked all participants to write a few sentences each week, focusing on particular topics.
One group wrote about things they were grateful for that had occurred during the week. A second group wrote about daily irritations or things that had displeased them, and the third wrote about events that had affected them (with no emphasis on them being positive or negative). After 10 weeks, those who wrote about gratitude were more optimistic and felt better about their lives. Surprisingly, they also exercised more and had fewer visits to physicians than those who focused on sources of aggravation. (source)
