“Prove It”, Inspiration From The Road Working With Bontrager Livestrong

Leave a comment

I am recently home from serving as chiropractor at the Pro Tour Challenge of Colorado 2012 (A Cycling Stage Race) working with the Bontrager Livestrong Cycling Team.  One of the things I love about serving on this development team is the team slogan of “prove it”- that it might be talent that got you on the team, but it is what you do with it that matters.

When serving I do my best to bring my gifts to the table to see how I can assist these riders, just like I do to the people I work with back home.  I ponder what it means for me to “prove it”.  Is it results?  Building of great relationships?  Bringing the most positive attitude I can to the intense environment?

Here is my top 10 list of ways to “Prove It” as a Chiropractor.  As the best chiropractor that I can be.  Clean and simple.

1.  Hold the line.  Don’t “treat” a condition- serve a whole person.  See the person as whole:  body, mind, spirit- not as a separate set of issues, symptoms, and parts.

2.  Determine what needs to be adjusted so that the person has the optimum conditions to thrive from the inside out with a clear nervous system- then get out of the way and let the healing and full life expression happen!

3.  Healing and life expression happens from the Inside Out.  Train to trust this, to allow for this.  Do what it takes to learn how to trust the healing power of the body- that is the only power that ever does the healing- interventions or no interventions.

4.  Get okay with “less is more.”  Most people are trained to feel value when there is “more” to be had- more time, more stuff, etc.  They will challenge you when you keep it simple.  Get okay with that.  Less is more when it comes to allowing the healing process and life expression process to occur, and, its empowering.

5.  Learn to listen and trust yourself.  Your own innate “crazy wisdom” knows what is best for you.  Let the successful people that you want to model yourself after or learn from rub off on you- learn from them and how they “did it”- and then find your way of doing it.  What “works’ for someone else might not “work” for you- and the times we live in are a changing fast.  The innate wisdom knows this- the outer educated mind might not have adapted yet.

6.  Develop the best possible skills possible at finding and releasing subluxations for this person.  Have gentle hands and effective adjustments.  Be fast, have finesse.  Listen to the body, don’t force things, listen, tune in, then deliver a highly skilled adjustment- with love.

7.  Serve.  Learn to embody the “Lasting Purpose” philosophy of chiropractic:  To Give, To Love, To Serve, Out of Abundance, With No Expectation Of Reward.

8.  Be positive.  Love what you do.  Allow it to speak for itself.  No need to cut others down along the way- just be the best possible you and let that speak for itself.

9.  Be okay with failing along the way.  Get up, dust off, try again.  Believe in yourself.  Your deepest truest self.

10.  Have fun!

Do you have ideas to add?  Go for it- share the ways that you “prove it” for yourself in the comments.  🙂
