Discover the hidden keys to Riches

(Keywords: CHIROPRACTIC RICHES, Dr Matt Hammett, Dr Trish Hammett, Napoleon Hill, Think and grow rich)
Do you ever, having read a book, feel cheated by the title? This is such a book, but not in the sense you are probably thinking! Finding such a title in a bookstore, I would almost certainly have put it down, and moved on. Mistake!
Based on the Napoleon Hill best-selling classic "Think and Grow Rich" these interviews of twelve leaders in the chiropractic profession on how Hill's philosophy affected them personally make fascinating reading.
Those interviewed, all but one chiropractors:
- Patrick Gentempo Jr
- William Esteeb
- Bob Hoffman
- Dennis Perman
- Fabrizio Mancini
- Larry Markson
- Mark Victor Hansen
- Tedd Koren
- Joan Fallon
- Bobby Doscher
- Janice Hughes
- John F. Demartini
"Without heroes, we're all plain people and don't know how far we can go."
A balancing act
Concerned at the number of chiropractors who fail in practice, not because they are poor clinicians, but because their attitude to money is immature and flawed, the authors give their responses to statements posed by Napoleon Hill such as:
- Riches cannot always be measured in money
- Do you feel that being rich and successful are the same thing?
- Do you believe there is any such thing as failure in life?
- Three enemies: Indecision, doubt and fear.
Faced with the tension between not wanting to charge a fair fee for a good service, and the greed that leads some doctors to overcharge and over-service their patients (or their insurance), this little book highlights how these men and women handled these dilemmas.
All twelve have apparently been not only successful in the normal sense of acquiring great financial riches but have also become persons highly esteemed.
A great read, rather over-priced I would suggest at $25, however a cut does go to support Oklahaven Chiropractic Children's Center.
Dr. John F. Demartini
Chiropractic Riches is loaded with thought-provoking material, but what has stood out for me are these wise words:
"I measure each individual's successes and achievements according to their unique set of hierarachy of values. Whatever is highest on their values is where they are most disciplined, reliable and focused. This what they identify themselves as most.
In their lower values they tend to procrastinate, hesitate, and frustrate.
Whenever they set goals that are not congruent with their highest values they tend not to achieve them. Their greatest acheivements and succeses will be in accordance with their hierarchy of values.
I consider people successful when they live congruently with their own highest values. This is when they feel the most fulfilled and inspired. This is when they feel the richest."
Read it twice
My philosophy is to pass books on once you've read them. There are not many books worth a second read, considering that you will probably read less than 500 books in a whole lifetime.
But Chiropractic Riches is a little gem, one of those books that I will certainly be reading a second time, perhaps a third and a fourth...
Not that I agree with everything I read, but Chiropractic Riches has challenged me to think, and weigh, and consider, like few other books have recently done.
Thank you Dr Trish and Dr Matt. A fine work.
