Because maybe it seems you’re caught in a juggling act, but you’re doing your best. This exists to help you thrive instead of just surviving.

Helping Parents to Parent Themselves

Apr 19, 2019

I think these are probably some of the most dangerous words in society.

Especially medicine, parenting, education, and certainly in your own life!

These have hindered growth and development here in the States when compared to how other countries have grown and adapted.   It's stagnated how we utilize resources for profit instead of impact on environment or health.

So, how has these shown up in your own life?   How are you stagnant in your day to day routine - just because that's what you've always done.  And is it actually serving you?   I can tell you firsthand that when working with some clients, their pain has become their identity.  They have been in pain for so long that the possibility of releasing that and not having that issue actually terrifies some.  It sounds crazy because it kind of is!

I have coaching clients with these stories concerning marriage, kids, finances, their job, their social life.  And change can sound and feel terrifying!  And so we hide in our "safe routine" and we are miserable!

Last night we went to a workshop for how to actually align the wheels for our soap box derby car.

It was overwhelming!  There is a lot to consider from toe in to toe out of the wheel and also camber which is like a tilt of the wheels and then there is weight to consider and it really comes down to THOUSANDTHS OF AN INCH.

If not done properly, the car loses speed due to friction and improper alignment of the wheels.  And as a chiropractor, I love that we are talking about alignment and efficiency.

We waste energy and talent when we are out of alignment to our core values.

What's worse is that the tiniest misalignment will someday lead us to being WAY off course!

What is the lesson with Tiger and his comeback win for the Master's?

First of all, everyone LOVES a comeback.   Sure he has haters and trolls that are spreading drama about this or the people that weren't fans before his fall are still bagging on him.

But the majority of folks.... love that he fell and came back.

And no matter the reason for your "fall" or even what you're actually trying to hide, people are rooting for you too.

It's time to let go of the guilt and shame.  The energy you are wasting on your past mistakes is likely baffling.

I have casually mentioned this before in several other episodes but I have never highlighted it.

When you start to set targets (I like saying this versus "goal"), attach a reward to it.   Write them down along with a finish by date and post them up so you can see them every day, heck multiple times a day.

And most importantly, when you do it, celebrate with your reward.

Because, I know that you haven't been.  Most of the time that is.  In fact, once you have achieved or won, you often downplayed your victory - claiming it to be small or no big deal.

At one time you thought it was.  But then as you tackled your daily actions towards your big target, you grew into a new person and that new person now doesn't see it as a "big deal".

The person you were at the bottom of the mountain is now dead and gone.  The person that climbed the mountain and is looking from the top has a totally new perspective and is now seeing bigger mountains to climb.

We're due for yet another blizzard here in Nebraska on the tail end of a massive statewide flood.  Ranchers and farmers alike have had enough of this.  It's calving and planting season here and we're looking for refuge from Mother Nature.  Meanwhile, my wife's cabin fever may be the death of my low back as she wants to landscape and "nest".

Does it do any good to complain about the weather?  Or one may argue that it's therapeutic to be able to vent about something.  I can agree with this if it leads to a solution.   But the weather?

It proves that one can complain about pretty much anything.

So instead, how can we reframe this to improve our lives and our outlook.

It's Soap Box Derby Season here in the States and in my tiny little town of Ogallala, NE we actually have an official Soap Box Derby Track - so it's a very popular thing here - I applaud the many individuals that give their time and talents to run this show.

Starting age?   SEVEN - which means my daredevil son finally gets to try it out.   AND it was a total and utter disaster!

He was all gung ho about it, until he actually saw the hill and people driving down it.

So, we coaxed him into trying it.   Starting half way down (they do this with all first-timers).  And when you're by yourself and that low to the ground, even 15 mph seems fast.  And he decided he was done for the day and his derby career came to an end.  And with that his sisters of age (8 and 7) were DEFINITELY not going to try it.

But, he talked it over all weekend and decided to give it another go.

And upon this second chance, he froze and didn't hit the brake at the end and slammed into the safety cones and tires at the bottom of the hill and gave himself a black eye with a nasty cut.   Oh yeah, there were tears.

To get someone to REALLY change their life.  It all focuses on changing from the inside out.   You can try a new haircut, or winning money in the lotto or having a long lost rich uncle die, or you can have that mid-life crisis and get the new car.  But trying to change from the outside in will not work.

And to remind someone just how amazing they are and how to really start winning the game; it all begins with a single win.

Big or small.  But a win nonetheless.  In fact, I say there are no small victories, only victories.  But you have to start with a win.

I didn't post a podcast on Tuesday (AKA yesterday) and for some it was an interruption to your routine.  For others, you didn't even notice.  And I understand because there is just a whole lot of noise out there.

But if you didn't notice, why?   I'm not trying to imply that I'm all that important, but if for some reason that I made it to a spot on your routine... did you notice the disruption?  Or do you even have a routine?

My point.  Those that noticed, they are the ones that have a specifically built routine designed for one thing - expansion/improvement/success/whatever you want to call it.

No routine?  Then you're allowing yourself to be reactive to your day and allow other people's priorities and emergencies dictate your life.   Kids, spouse, bosses, clients, etc.

One version is empowering, the other depends on chance.  A morning ritual or free time ritual will either build you up or sedate you.  And you have one no matter what.  Your rituals could be playing on your phone or checking Facebook when you wake up.

Or it can be so much more.

I was approached at the grocery store the other night.  A high schooler told me that he has been seeing me pick up my daughters from the bus and wanted to let me know that there was an older kid talking to one of them and has been talking and teasing her about a lot of different things.

Asking her if she liked porn.  She is in elementary school.  And it became clear about where she had been learning about a few things that have been coming up.   Things about "momo" and how to cut your wrists, not so innocent rhymes and songs, and even comebacks like "I just posted on Facebook that you're the meanest sister ever."  And while her sister probably was, I was floored that she had said that.

I understand that I can't protect them forever.   In fact, I know they will be exposed to more than I want to admit just out of earshot from their parents and teachers, but I implore everyone to have a talk with their kids.  We talk to our kids about dirty words and how they may hear them but not allowed to use them until they are much older.  We discuss that everyone is different and unique and they are going to see a lot in their lives and they have to decide what to invest time and attention towards.  But this is a situation where it requires me to help her come up with an action plan.

Is the school or school bus to blame?  No.  I will let them know but here's what we did (listen for more!)

It wasn't until I was SIX years into running my own business before I actually sent someone to collections.  We would call, send letters, have our lawyer send letters, call again, and over and over we would try to stay in communication with someone.  And yet, I would either take the hit, or keep that balance there to stare at me until 2016 when I finally started to stand up for myself.

I was too terrified that people wouldn't like me.   Even though, they were basically okay with me doing the work and them not paying for the results.

In fact, I would make up stories in my head about why they couldn't pay (and yes, there are many people that have valid reasons, but I'm talking about the folks that just "ghost us" and don't keep up in the loop about a crisis or hardship).

These other stories, I would blame myself.  Seriously, it would magically become my fault.  Thinking I had pissed them off, or said the wrong thing, or that they didn't get the results and were just too nice to not tell me.

I am a recovering people pleaser.  A "Nice Guy".  And it has nearly cost me my business.   I had to cut corners to make up for this lost income due, I didn't pay payroll taxes thinking I would catch up later.  Yeah right.

I was about to "nice guy" myself into bankruptcy.  Just to be liked.  And really, do you really think they liked me more because of it.

This damn quote triggered the hell out of me.  I have clutter in my life and it drives me crazy!   I am overweight (calorie clutter), I am often in a reactionary mindset or not prepared for all the kids and wife's emergencies (relationship clutter), and budgeting and finances are often cluttered and disorganized.   Sure I have physical clutter, but not much.   Instead of I have clutter in my mind (and yes also junk in my back storage room too).

Here's the quote again for anyone that missed it.  "Clutter is the physical manifestation of unmade decisions fueled by procrastination."   - Christina Scalise

So look around you.  Look at the facts.  Are you surrounded by clutter?   How about your body?   Or finances?

You can't even pretend it doesn't exist because it will be right there staring at you... YEP.

Spoke to a local mom here in my hometown and she reached out because she saw an infographic about signs of mental and emotional exhaustion.  And let me tell you, she is far from being the only one out there!

We could go a number of ways with this episode, from sleep to stress to lack of connection with friends or even your spouse!

But really what it comes down to is a disconnection from self.  Ignoring your needs.  Ignoring the warning signs and pushing them aside until you can't push any more.  And no matter what, once you disconnect from yourself, you start to lose it all.

Positive and negative reinforcement, good and bad consequences, good and bad rewards and punishments.

We are all motivated by different things.  Some people run away from bad, and some run towards the good.

As a health professional and coach it's important for me to understand what motivates a client's behavior.  And to help them transition from their current state of pain (whether it's physical pain or the pain of their current situation), I need for them to see the risks and benefits and to promote one to help them leap towards (or away) their goal (or from punishment).

And for each and everyone of us.  You have to ask yourself, "why am I doing this?  why do I care about XYZ?"

And if you can answer that, you can see if you're in the trap of wanting approval from someone else, or avoiding the punishment from another, or really just living the life that YOU want.

Unfortunately, with social media, we are encouraged over and over again to seek approval in the form of "likes" or Reddit points, or shares/retweets and the like.   These are really powerful dopamine inducing pleasure responses to know that other people are approving of our posts and thoughts and opinions.  We get addicted to it.  And it's hard to even break free from it in our "real lives" by not trying to seek that same reward.

So the next time you're doing chores, helping around the house, dressing your kids, dressing yourself...  why?   Is your hair perfect for you?  Or for some fake ass people to approve you?

I have mentioned working with Wake Up Warrior with Garrett J White many times on my podcast, but here is an example of how I used their teachings in my life and in creating a legacy with my kids.

Each and every day, my kids are expected to invest in the following areas of their life:  Body, Being, Balance, and Business.  That's the adult version, for them, I say:

Body, Spirit, Family, and Education.

When they accomplish it each day, they earn a reward of their choosing from a short list:  screen/tech time, treats, dates with mom or dad.

They are also working towards a long term goal of participating in a Spartan Race this Summer.  

So, in this episode I interview my wife and get real feedback about how this has helped them gain confidence and momentum in their own lives.  And that's the point, how can we purposely help our kids create momentum for their days.  So far it's working for us and I hope it can help you too!

There is no someday.  It doesn't exist.  In fact, it's this terrible lie that we are being sold every day of our lives.  From social media, credit cards, gyms, church, and yes even coaches and doctors like myself.

You're being sold that some day, you'll finally be able to... have fun, relax, play with the kids, enjoy golf, have sex, go on vacation, lose weight, and just smile about how great life is.

And it's kind of depressing to think that this isn't true.  But that's only because you're so focus on that some day that you're forgetting you have find that today.

The purpose of your life is not to lose weight and pay bills.   And it's not to spend your life in misery to work for someone else's dream just to squeak by.

It's happening right now.  And you get to choose to wake up and create that fun right now.  Right now.  And it's not easy at first.   In fact, it's really freaking hard to look at the chaos in the moment and see the beauty in it.  But you have to.  You have to save yourself right now.

Have fun with your kids right now.   Put the phone down.  Put the laundry down.

Have fun at work.  Because you only have one shot at this life.  Love what you do.   Both at home and at work.  Just find that joy there.  And yes, if you're cleaning toilets, that means finding joy in being the best damn toilet cleaner you can be.  Or CEO.  Because we know that there are billionaires that hate their lives, that literally kill themselves because chasing that all mighty dollar didn't do a damn thing for them.   Or the highest religious official or leaders that crumble from some scandal because they were chasing happiness in all the wrong places.  Or worse yet, people that sacrifice their health for their work and die and are replaced within a week.  For what?   Wake the hell up and realize that you need to start acting like a human BEING.

So this is me giving you permission.  Have fun in everything you do.  Find the ounce of joy in your work, your kids, your housework, your studies.  Because no one is going to do it for you.

No one wants to have some perfect role model leading from a mountain top.  They made it and they did the work and have arrived.  Sure it sounds great in theory and it looks damn good on social media, but everyone knows that those guys are so far ahead (however they got there) that it's almost unattainable for us regular folk.  I believe that yes you can get to that point, but it's hard to grasp such a leap.

Instead, most people really do well with a leader that is only a few steps ahead.  They are doing the work at the same time; helping you see that you are indeed not alone, but among friends and that you'll conquer this together.

One screams "look at me" and the other says "come with me".

That's how I coach.  I have figured out a few things and hope you come with me.

And furthermore, I hope that you pass it forward and help even more people go with you.

It's time to stop thinking that you have to be this perfect image of success before you can help others.  Why on earth would I wait to help someone that needs help.  Why should I wait until I'm at the top when I could have been bringing you along?

The same goes for your journey.  So, let's get started climbing that mountain, together.
