Chiropractic philosophy says a system in alignment leads to success. It is true that most people if not all are on or would like to be on a path towards their success. However we can question how very few actually achieve their success. The honest answer is very few have their systems in alignment.

To be in alignment what does that mean?
Alignment of thoughts, feelings and actions.

Mushin is a Japanese word for the mind without mind, "no-mindness". That is, a mind not fixed or occupied by thought or emotion and thus open to everything. So the person is totally free to act and react towards their life without hesitation and without disturbance from negative and negating thoughts. The mushin mind is therefore the only mindset to have to be in alignment and achieve your success.

This is a great concept however, it doesn't matter who you are, everyone has the challenge ahead of them. If the path to your success was smooth, no doubt you would be able to achieve it. However in reality each challenge we face not only challenges us physically, it challenges our mindset and how much in alignment we have our systems.

The world famous boxer Joe Fraser spoke of the training effect. "You can map out a fight plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go the way you planned, and you're down to your reflexes - that means your preparation. That's where your road-work shows. If you cheated on that in the dark of the morning, well, you're going to get found out now, under the bright lights!" How is your training effect? This means if you get found out under the bright lights in front of your challenge, your challenge becomes a stress. Stress is not by nature something you can conquer and you, as the whole entity, start to are no longer in alignment.

So what do you want, what is your success and how badly do you want it?
Today is the first day of the rest of your life so start now prior to your next challenge. Start now by being clear on what your intentions are, why do you want what you want?

Thereafter be specific and smart with your goals. Goals that are not correctly written down will not be achievable, same as a mansion is not built without a precise blueprint.

Finally be diligent with your actions, those daily rituals and routines that pull each and every part of you back into alignment. Be impeccable with your words and actions.

And in this way one is able to confidently state I am. I am, that which I believe I am. And that which you believe you are, you will become!
