The bad news is that any time you start something new, you probably aren’t going to be very good at it. And when I say probably, I really mean you ARE NOT going to be good at it.
One of my Jerryisms is, “Version 1 of everything sucks!” Yes, there are some people out there who are more naturally gifted than others, but no one reaches their full potential their first try. It doesn’t happen.
Deep down inside, we already know that. But for some reason, our fear of failure or even just looking silly keeps us from starting something new that we know we need to do.
For most chiropractors, being a good chiropractor IS NOT your only job. It’s just a small part of what you do. You are a business owner. You are a marketer. You are a networker.
Successful chiropractors typically wear a lot of different hats, and most of those other jobs were NOT taught in school. That means you are going to have to try some things you haven’t ever tried before. You are going to have to run the risk of looking silly. You are going to have to be willing to suck at some things.
But it’s NOT all bad news. The good news is that you are probably not going to be doing something that hasn’t ever been done before. You don’t have to be a trailblazer. You can walk along the paths that have been created ahead of you. You can learn from the mistakes of others. You can stand on the shoulders of giants.
If you want to make your practice life a little easier (not easy…easier) and accelerate your growth…get help. Get a coach. Find a mentor. Join a group. Find someone who is further down the road than you are and ask them for advice. That way your step 1 can be a better step 1 than it would have been if you would have tried to figure everything out on your own.
Bottom Line: As a chiropractor, you are going to have to learn some things and do some things that are new. The first time(s) you do something new, you aren’t going to be very good at it…you will suck! Don’t let that stop you. Instead, accelerate your growth and make your process easier by learning from those who have already done what you want to do. Stand on the shoulders of giants.
