What to do when plans don’t go to plan

How many times have you told yourself that this year will be the year?

Your year—finally—the year you fulfil your potential. Finally, live the life you always wanted to live. Implement positive habits, take control of your time, live a better year. This year will finally be your year.

Every one of us wants to improve; we all want to be better. For some osteopaths, better means treating more patients and building enough money to open their first clinic. While for others osteopaths, better means treating fewer patients, organising their clinic, and teaching their associates how to be better practitioners.

We all want to have better careers. Many of us even know what to do. Yet we can’t seem to actually do it. So time passes, and eventually, the plans don’t go to plan. And while sometimes external factors limit us from doing what we want, most of the time, it’s all internal.

Let’s talk about how osteopaths can approach this brand new year a little differently for the better.

You must break your internal resistance

Epictetus poses himself a question during difficult times, just like our own, to people like you who deserved better than their current circumstances offered.

You’re no different. You deserve better. Especially this year. You certainly know that you’re capable of more. You may already have plans, but something is stopping you from making your dreams real. For many osteopaths we’ve spoken to, it’s so simple when we boil it down. It’s just getting on and doing it.

Right now is the best time to just start getting on with what needs to be done. Because whatever you’re planning is possible. This year. Stop putting it off until tomorrow, waiting for it to just happen. Because it won’t. Someone has to make it happen. Someone has to take control. That someone is you; you must break the internal resistance.

This year could be your most important year

Every year, including this year right in front of you, can be the most important year of your life. The one where you become your best, most self-reliant and resilient self.

Over 20 osteopaths started working with us in December to confront the turning of the last page on last year’s calendar. A fresh start is a significant motivator, but we must be careful because it can set the tone for the rest of the year if we don’t take advantage of that fire within.

What is one positive way you can start this month or even today? What would you give to add a life-changing habit to your life? What would it mean to you to have everything in order so you can do what you do best, helping people?

Quote

“How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?” – Epictetus.

Don’t let this year get away from you. Again.

What are the risks of not taking control of your life and career? To allow another year to pass not living up to your potential? Of not preparing yourself to be the master of your career? Most of the risks aren’t as threatening as you think.

Seneca reminds us that fools all have one thing in common: They are always getting ready to start. They are always getting ready to change but never do. They never do. They don’t do the work. Making substantial changes takes work. Same with committing to the gym, breaking bad habits, reading more.

We believe it’s worth repeating Epictetus’s question: “How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?”

Don’t wait to better yourself. Don’t wait to demand more of yourself. Become the better you. The new you.
