"If insurance companies would recognize the value of chiropractic care, I'd be happier."

"If patients would make the lifestyle changes I suggest, they'd get better results and I'd be more successful."

"If my front desk staff would be more aware of opportunities to ask for referrals, I'd be busier."

[Insert your frustration here.]

When we relinquish our agency, assume the role of a victim and invest our emotional well-being on things beyond our control, we blind ourselves to new possibilities.

This is childlike. And not in a good way. It's a common strategy used to avoid responsibility. I've employed it countless times.

Being creative is among an important skill of a successful leader, influencer or changemaker. You!

Granted there are countless examples of injustice, abuse and unfairness. They're trademarks of our fallen world.

A constraint is the surest way to provoke our creativity. Embrace the former to unleash the latter.
