A few years ago, I created an acronym for the word WISDOM. When Innate Steadfastly Drives Our Mission, we get W.I.S.D.O.M. – in action! Like so many of my mentors who were passionate educators, lovers of humanity and human potential, I am more excited than ever to share what I’ve learned. And this wisdom has never been more important.
This entire month I have taken a look at the last 35 years spent in dedication to my career, my patients, my family, my colleagues, and the truth—not in that order. This opportunity has allowed me to look at our past successes, things in the big picture of health that I’m thrilled and not so thrilled about, and to take a look forward to the next 35 years. After this period of introspection I must say that I am more convinced than ever that the 100 Year Lifestyle perspective is crucial to our shared future. Why? Because as John C. Maxwell said:
If you don’t try to create the future you want, you must endure the future you get.
The truth of the 100 Year Lifestyle perspective is that with the right information, the right actions, and the right objectives, we are all empowered to make the right decisions, and together we will see the future be one of health, longevity, and freedom for everyone. In fact, I have no doubt about this. As Maya Angelou said:
When you know better you do better.
The more we educate, expose the lies, put forward the truth, and give people the opportunity to decide for themselves, the better we will all do.
I am often asked how I can be so optimistic. Particularly in the face of so many disturbing elements of life today. It’s simple, I just know for certain that people who take actions to deceive or manipulate or otherwise bet against life, are always ultimately exposed. And, in the end, they always lose. People are smart, our bodies are smart, and the more things change, the more they stay the same.
There is no doubt that our shared future is one of health, longevity, and freedom. How do I know this? Because you are reading these words. I know that our shared future is one of health, longevity, and freedom because I believe that when you know better you do better – and you will act on the information you have available to you 24/7 on this website (The 100 Year Lifestyle). I am sure that it’s never too late to change. But I also know that time is of the essence and there is never a moment to lose. I know that our shared future holds no room for fear. To quote Shalene Flanagan:
Don’t let fear decide your future.
There is no reason to fear because we are creating our future, no one else, starting here, starting how. The future I am creating is where everyone will be aware of the amazing innate intelligence of their body, where people will know, trust, and turn to their chiropractor for primary care before turning to pills, invasive procedures, and the conventional medical establishment. Together, the future we are creating is one where we will all have the freedom to make our own decisions about our health and lifestyle. The future I see clearly is one we will achieve by speaking our truth. Remember, you too have W.I.S.D.O.M. in action! Are you in?
