Everyone in the world seeks peace, beauty, fullness of life and goodness. As chiropractors, we have the opportunity to share this beauty with everyone who crosses our path and we have the opportunity to be at the helm of a movement that can bring peace into the lives of so many.
“To those who see with loving eyes, life is beautiful.
To those who speak with tender voices, life is peaceful.
To those who help with gentle hands, life is full.
And to those who care with compassionate
hearts, life is good beyond all measure.”
– Gilles Lamarche
When you read these words do you automatically think chiropractic?
Everyone in the world seeks peace, beauty, fullness of life and goodness. As chiropractors, we have the opportunity to share this beauty with everyone who crosses our path and we have the opportunity to be at the helm of a movement that can bring peace into the lives of so many. Could we always “see with loving eyes,” “speak with tender voices,” “help with gentle hands” and “care with compassionate hearts”? Of course we could, and so could our team members.
Imagine for a moment how everyone in your environment would improve if all practiced these principles. Do you think that this type of emotion would affect the lives of every patient? If each patient left your office in a different frame of mind, how would this affect the lives of their loved ones and co-workers? What would this do to change your life and that of your team members? What would this do to change the world one patient at a time, one practice at a time, and one community at a time?
Try it! I am certain that you will love the process. Increase your public accountability and share this message with your family and team. Tell them that, as of today, you promise yourself, them and the Universe that you will speak with a tender voice, help with gentle hands and care with a compassionate heart. By being publicly accountable you automatically increase your awareness of your desire to serve at a new level. With right intent to do good, everyone and everything in your life will benefit.
Can this be considered a practice-building tip as well? Try it and you be the judge. Your life will be forever enhanced and you will discover that life truly is good beyond all measure and so are the people who practice these simple yet effective ways of changing the world one little attitude at a time. As Gandhi once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”.
My dear friends, and colleagues, as the year comes to a close, look at yourself in the mirror and join me in saying, “It all starts here”. Take the important step to make this happen in your life – action, action, action! …
With love and respect for chiropractic and all who serve humanity, Yours in Peace, Dr. Gilles A. Lamarche•
