After 120 Years How Are We Choosing To Change The World?
A message to all Chiropractors on the 120th birthday of our profession
Chiropractic embodies a truth and as that is shared through words and actions the more the awareness of that truth will spread. When that awareness reaches critical mass, action, actual system wide change will automatically come forth. I know we all want action now but I feel that the best action right now is to continue to tell the story. Right now there are too many people and groups that will try to squash any real action steps, and they will most likely succeed. It will only be when critical mass has been reached that the core paradigm will shift and those same people and groups will not be able to stop the actions that will spring forth. Perhaps our charge is to continually strengthen the wave of change that is already rising and then ride that wave on to the beach of a brighter future.
P.S. As BJ Palmer once said, "You never know how far reaching something you may think, say or do today, could affect the lives of millions tomorrow!" Who knows how many souls have read or been told something today, right now this very minute, that has changed how they view the world for the better. People that, had others not been willing to tell the story again and again and again and again, might not have heard it. Getting frustrated with the world and people today is normal, but change will happen faster if we are willing to keep telling the story.
"It is not the final chop that brings the tree down but all the ones that came before."
Keep chopping away.
Happy Birthday to a great profession and principle!
