One of the best things about being an entrepreneur is……the spare time you get from working for the RIGHT OFFICE…or from being your own boss. I won’t lie. It’s fun!
Everyone that has met me knows that i’m a big believer that Chiropractors should work in their business 3-4 days a week. Period. You can be VERY SUCCESSFUL with that amount of time inside your office.
That means though, that you get extra time to work ON YOUR BUSINESS. The way we spend our ‘spare time’ is that difference maker between a good successful chiropractor and a chiropractor that can call himself or herself one of Tomorrow’s Doctors Today. There is one thing I want to make very clear….This blog is not about slacking, pissing time away or “Half-Assing” anything! All I know is GRIND…and if you want your practice or business to remain where is currently is or if you want to take it to new heights…wake up and work your face off! You as a young “DOC” (Doctor of Cause) need to know know that this entry has nothing to do with wasting time…in fact, quite the opposite, it’s about making your spare time work for you and to enjoy yourself because what you do in your spare time or free time is just as important as waking up when all is still dark and the “OTHER GUY” and the rest of the world is still sleeping!
Not only should you love the time you spend in your office and make it as productive as possible, but the same love should be placed on your time outside of the office. Here are 5 things Successful Chiropractors do outside the office with their ‘spare time’.
LET’S GET STARTED!!!!
1) Public Speaking
Successful Chiropractors are great communicators. They use their time to not only get better at public speaking…but actually doing public speaking. Being a speaker at a school, a networking group or in your own office is the best way to get new patients. As a speaker people will view you as an expert in health. You were “invited” to go to that event. You took from your time to “grace your audience” with your presence. Very different from screenings where you usually have to pay to be there, you are invading people’s space, etc. First thing to do, get GREAT at Public Speaking. The way you do that is to practice by yourself, in front of a mirror or a camera to record yourself. Then, join a club or a group that will give you the opportunity to practice. (If you’re at Life University we can definitely help you with that at our Elite P.E.A.K. Internship Opportunity or with the TDT Platform D.C. Training Team. If you are interested in becoming our newest member, feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org) and then schedule those speaking engagements anywhere they’ll have you. The more you do it, the better you’ll get. Promised!
2) Read/Listen to Podcasts/Personal Development
I feel like I always talk about this. But that’s how passionate I am about it. Reading THE RIGHT books have changed my life. On this blog you can see a list of my favorite ones, and the ones recommended to any new Chiropractor/Entrepreneur. Podcasts and Books can be a huge source of motivation and learning…you’ll get better the more you read and listen! It’s like math. 2 +2= 4. The more you read books and the more you listen to successful people = the better at your business you’ll be. Get motivated! Get Successful!
Simple yet effective. People who exercise in their spare time are happier, more energized and are more productive (which is the point to this whole thing). Not only will you look better when standing in front of a big crowd, like step 1, and your clothe will fit better. But you will be able to show in your demeanor that you live what you preach. As you very well know, that goes a long way.
4) Be Thankful
On your spare time, be thankful for the opportunity of being an Entrepreneur. This lifestyle will grant you the ability to do things not many people get to do. Create a habit to be thankful for everything around you. Let’s make a list of things to be thankful for in our spare time: We get to pick the people we get to work with everyday. We have an opportunity to add value to people’s lives. We don’t have to ask permission to try something crazy. Receiving payment for value delivered. Nothing compares to that feeling. We are the owners of our own life. The joy of seeing a sliver of light after some dark, dark, days. On Day 2,743…when the world celebrates your “overnight success”. (Love being thankful for this one). The chance to try. To fail. To try again and flail around. Then, with some luck and a lot of hard work, to flourish. When we are thankful the universe rewards us with more of what we are thankful for!
“Time = Life” – Therefore, Waste your time = Waste your life or Master your time = Master your life.
And Yes….Last…and Definitely NOT Last…#5
5) Have Sex
Yeah, I said it!!! SEX! Hmmm…So let’s mention some of the many benefits of having sex and how it will make you a better entrepreneur. Sex helps grow, maintain and accurately replicate brain cells and protects your brain from stress: Sex helps you feel more confident about yourself. Sex allows you to get what you want, when you want it. Sex allows you to express the art of giving. Sex feels good. Sex actually makes you more attractive to others. Sex makes you sleep better, so you are re-energized for your next day at the office. Sex makes you happier! Still not 100% convinced? Here are the fact and pertinent details from an article from Dr. Joseph Mercola!
