When you experience better, DO better
Make a decision to be in the game
Good day, New Day community!
We’ve all probably heard the quote, “When you know better, do better.” According to the internet, this quote can be traced to Maya Angelou. The idea, at it’s most simple, is not to let the “I don’t know” hold you back from taking action and moving forward in your life.
It is in that process of boldly moving forward and experiencing yourself as powerful that we learn what needs to be learned and make the necessary course corrections.
So often, I meet people who want to get better– whether that means getting better sleep, being more productive, feeling less pain and tension, etc– but they stop themselves from moving forward with a plan that’s being recommended because they “don’t know ______” (insert whatever it is that typically stops them from taking action).
“I don’t know how I’ll pay for this.”
“I don’t know when I’ll have time for this.”
“I don’t know where I’ll be in three months.”
“I don’t understand how this works.”
“My situation is too difficult for this.”
“The last time I tried something like this, it didn’t help me.”
And on and on. Hopefully we can all see ourselves here in that most of us have one or more typical very-reasonable-sounding reasons why things can’t change right now (save for some minor tweaks that let’s face it aren’t likely to lead to a breakthrough).
And yet most of us can look back at months and years in our lives when we let such reasons run our decision making, and now, with the gift of perspective, knowing what we know now, we wish we would have seen the light sooner.
Network Care allows you to have a powerful experience of yourself physically, by ensuring that the brain and body are working together for your health, healing, and continued wellness. But it won’t work unless you allow it to work.
That means putting yourself in the game, so to speak, and making a commitment to move forward and a decision that this will help you. You make this decision based on the knowledge that the brain is the most important organ in the body, and it can’t do it’s work if the nervous system and spine aren’t healthy. It’s that simple.
It also means allowing that process of getting care for your spine, through the ups and downs of life, to work over time. The idea that “I don’t understand why I still need this” is about as helpful as being stopped from working out at the gym because you don’t understand why it’s “still” necessary, now that you’ve lost weight.
When we know better– and by “know” I mean EXPERIENCE– we are in a position to do better. But don’t miss that this experience is something you get to generate, and it is a choice and an opportunity to live powerfully. It is an honor and privilege to serve as your “spine-life-optimizer” (chiropractor), and I look forward to seeing you at your sessions this week.
