Dr. Tomshack Explains: Full Moon & Friday the 13th and What That Means To Your Practice

This past Tuesday night I was standing in the middle of the woods surrounded by huge pine trees gently blowing in the breeze as rain lightly fell from the grey, eater-soaked clouds. In front of me was a beautiful lake glowing in the light of the almost-full moon. It was peaceful. It was perfect.

By the way, you likely already know that tonight is not only a full moon, but it’s also called a ‘honey moon’ since it’s a full moon in June. What’s more, it’s Friday the 13th. All of these occurrences haven’t happened on the same night since 1919. It won’t happen again until 2098. If you’re able and the clouds are absent, get outside tonight and enjoy the beautiful event with someone you love. Relax and enjoy the moment. Be present.

So what was I doing in the woods? Well, I happen to have what I call a ‘baseball van’. It’s a rather large Sprinter van with many of the amenities of home. Lisa (my beautiful bride) and I use it to travel to all my older son’s college baseball games. It allows us the freedom to take turns driving while the other works and to eat excellent nutrition while travelling. Occasionally, if I’m on a trip alone, such as when I visit HealthSource clinics within 5-7 hours away, I’ll even sleep in the van since it has a decent bed.

This particular day I was visiting our clinics in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio, so I chose to do something I’d never done before; I parked in a secluded campground, plugged the van in, and had a very relaxing evening and night. In the morning I showered (there’s a rather small shower on board) and whipped up an amazing VitaMix vegetable and protein smoothie. Why am I telling you this?

Because each of us has the power within us to chose and follow our dreams. We can achieve almost anything we put our minds to if we maintain focus and purpose. And so when I go to each of our offices, the goal is to efficiently figure out what the next steps are for each HealthSource family member to implement correctly to move them closer to their vision. All it takes is proper mentorship and follow through.

What are your dreams? Are you moving towards them at a pace that is satisfactory to you? If not, why not? Do you have a mentor or mentors that have already achieved that which you desire? If not, your first step may be to find a mentor now. It can mean the difference between amazing success and an incredible lifestyle or stumbling along in mediocrity. Chose Success! Our great profession needs more wildly successful doctors. What’s more, people deserve top notch chiropractic care.

问题:我开枪n email. I look forward to hearing from you. And don’t forget to get out tonight and enjoy the magnificent moonlight!
