I have found that the absolutely most important key to success is consistency. I personally do not think there is anything bigger. Think about it, you don't return to restaurants that are inconsistent with their service or their food. Olympic athletes do not reach gold with out consistency. Inventors do not change the world by giving up. Consistency is key in all aspects of our life. Our career, our personal relationships, our health, our spiritual growth, none of these grow with out consistency. Consistency is doing the same thing over and over, even when you can not see the fruits of your labor. But knowing that they will be there in the end.
When patients come to me looking for answers in regards to their health, one of the big aspects that they have been missing is consistency. Patients have probably been exposed to the same information before that I tell them. They have seen detoxes and cleanses and other weightloss programs. About 90 percent of them have been to a chiropractor before. But the reason why we get the results is because of consistency. I do not allow them to not be consistent. Bottom line. They will not be accepted as a patient if they do not comply. Its not that I do that to be mean, I do that because Im not going to let you quit. Other people have let you slack off before, quit when you were tired, and that's the reason you are in your current situation. Im not willing to do that, I may be your last chance.
A funny side topic regrading consistency. Consistency should be important on who you take health advice. In 1895, DD Palmer the founder of Chiropractic stated and published that smoking poisoned the nervous system. In the 1940's and even the 50's Medical doctors were telling you which cigarettes they smoke. "More doctors choose Camel's." One word, CONSISTENCY.
