“Personal growth is a foregone conclusion with Network Spinal Analysis.”
Everything I’ve learned about NSA, including the new directions and thought processes that later came from these lessons, has been integrally tied to the development of my own systems for personal growth.
Before returning to work on this blog, I actually had a hard time distinguishing where NSA left off and my work began. There are many similarities. Then it became clear to me that I had to write about my world as it was shaped by the NSA world. So that solved that problem.
This left me free to tackle the issue of restarting my own work and clarifying what that was. I knew all the pieces. I’ve been a mighty student of my own mind for many years now. The last two, in particular, have involved some very heavy digging within and massive pondering of what I found.
Behind it all is how NSA helped direct the search
I’ve studied under a lot of people in many fields. Just searching, finding, qualifying, and considering. Sort of an ad hoc college education, you might say.
I took copious notes and journaled extensively. Periodically, I’d revisit what I wrote to decide if I still felt the same way, if the material even mattered to me anymore or if these past insights would lead to new ones. Good stuff stayed. Needless content was wiped out.
Then I organized what I found, trying to turn it all into one cohesive platform based on one overriding perspective.
This part was partially accomplished but then my gears slipped
I had all the pieces and knew this to be true in my heart. But for the life of me, I could not organize it all in a way that made me comfortable, while also meeting various professional goals.
I knew I needed help and that lead to the booking of a phone call that resulted in a game changing conversation. The man I spoke with has nothing to do with NSA. But he sees life in a way similar to mine and he teaches things that mirror much of what I’ve learned through NSA. Together, we sorted me out.
This gave me my first big breakthrough in years!
He confirmed that I was on the right track and had been for a long while. He helped me focus on which of all the pieces made use of the rest. He helped me understand who I would be helping with it all. And he showed me how to present it to the world in a way that met all my needs.
I’ve learned a way to survive and thrive that I can teach to anyone but it’s based on a willingness to work
The key to my life is the acceptance of personal responsibility in all things and then being accountable for creating the changes I desire or need. If something is broken, wrong, or missing, it is no one’s fault but my own.
It’s also no one’s job to do anything about it except mine. And those most important to me are depending on me – holding me accountable – to sort this all out, no matter what.
Part of how I made it this far was through talks with Dr. Marc
Some of them were about how NSA and ROH bring about change. Some of them were personal.
Marc knows my life, has played a critical part in helping me to fix it, and has cared enough to inspire me through some of the darker and less clear portions of the trip. I can’t fully express how important it’s been to me to finally reach this point.
Personal growth comes easier when your doctor wants it for you just as bad!
Marc is special to me, of course. But I have found that Chiropractors, in general, seem to be more people oriented than MDs and the like. They gain a deep, personal satisfaction from seeing you improve in all areas of your life.
They are more willing to go that extra mile, seeing in you something you can only feel and hope is true, and then helping you make real what had once only been a dream. An idea. They water the seed and nurture what grows from it.
And like I said, it is YOU who is actually doing all the work. Then, one day, you get to have your own big breakthrough.
