“Marc is what all doctors are supposed to be like!”
Marc cares. When you meet or work with him, that becomes plainly evident in a few nanoseconds.
When I first met Marc, my life was in shambles and the wreckage was starting to also catch on fire. I was only looking for back pain relief but I ended up finding someone who’d be unconditionally in my corner.
Marc is a supporter
There was so much work to be done on my entire being, in order for me to just survive myself. It was a process just to get out of the hole and reach zero. It took years. And the bulk of the work done on my body, at first, was Structural Chiropractic.
In hindsight, had I known, believed, and accepted what NSA was all about right from the start, I think I’d be at a much more advanced position in life than I am now.
Where I’m at now, compared to where I started from, is great. Still have my own share of major problems to solve. But the foundational thinking and perspective needed to fix them has been firmly established. I have the tools I need to efficiently improve.
I can be proactive more than reactive
The only reason I got to this point was Marc’s belief in my ability to heal and his belief in my ability to succeed at whatever it was that I wanted to make of my life.
He encouraged me through my projects and had more faith in me than I did myself, many times
I was writing my book and developing a coaching and speaking business off the back of it. And this way of life, compared to that of being an employee, was frequently terrifying and unclear to me. I needed someone, who was not family, to believe in me and to tell me I was doing right. Or tell me when I should adjust course.
I needed someone to trust who cared about me but whose opinion of me was not shaped by intimate past knowledge of me.
To be sure, I was (and still am) bullheaded in my one belief that I must always strive to move forward, regardless of all else. I’m never going to stop my own work of self discovery and my communication of it to the world for those who have yet to reach where I am.
But to find someone who will tell it to me straight, yet in a supportive fashion, is a hard item to come by
Marc filled that void for me. He helped keep me calm as I built my new life.
And once I had been at this long enough, my personal awareness, as well as my global awareness, expanded enough to be able to extract what I needed from his advice that he wasn’t directly saying.
That was a mouthful. Try this: his way of interacting with me as I sought his advice had its own feedback that involved no words.
Marc was helping me become someone better able to see the lessons that were between the lines
And that is something I believe all great leaders, large and small, must know how to do without fail if they are ever to be of good use to those who listen to them.
Marc’s not a miracle worker. He’ll tell you that himself. He’s just a guy who studied a certain field and from there does his best to make sure he’s treating people right with what he knows. This is how he enjoys life.
By understanding him better and by letting him support me, I have learned more than what I first thought this was all about. I needed someone to back me up in a way that also guided me toward a better way of being.
This then allowed me to loop back and not only have what I wanted but to reshape my goals to make sure that what I wanted was worthy of the life I was trying to build.
And it’s an ongoing process
Marc is not the only person in my life helping me to do this. For that matter, everyone I meet does this for me in some way. But he plays the most active part. I do my best to make sure his efforts are not wasted.
