“We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul,” is how one of BJ Palmer’s most famous chapters in his groundbreaking book, The Bigness of the Fellow Within. BJ speaks of chiropractic philosophy in his 1949 text, but it is really a life philosophy, that speaks of vitalism (there is an internal force that animates us that is different than the force that is in, for example, a rock)and wholism (that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts). Listen as Dr. Rubin explains the deeper meaning of life philosophy.
What was your favorite childhood book growing up when you were first learning how to read? That might say a lot about you and who you are today! So says one of the contributors to Tim Ferriss’ great new book, Tribe of Mentors. Dr Rubin picked “The Lorax”, signifying his commitment to the healthcare of the kids. If you held that last seed in your hands, would it survive? Would new trees grow because of you? What’s your favorite children’s book and why?
Several people have been amazing mentors and one that Dr Rubin repeatedly talks about is Dr Sid Williams. Dr Sid had these great lines like “Accept the message in full faith” or “see the fields white with harvest.” Listen to the amazing vision Dr Sid had and see if you can catch the feeling!
Jim Rohn’s classic story of sowing and reaping uses the example of the famous saying, “An apple a day…” He says that eating an apple a day is easy to do, but it’s also easy NOT to do.

Every year, millions of people make “New Year’s Resolutions.” And every year, most of those millions are feeling guilty by January 15th about not sticking with those resolutions. But as Tony Robbins talked about in his New Year’s video (https://youtu.be/jL5jKptjIQw), are we REALLY resolved towards these resolutions? To be resolute means to be purposeful and unwavering. Dr Rubin helps you develop that mindset.
How many times have we heard the comment, “I can’t possibly achieve that because I’m_____(fill in the blank here).” Examples: Too old, too young, not enough education, overqualified, not enough experience. One of Dr. Rubin’s was “I’m just a little guy from a little town.” But listening to the great motivators like Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, and amazing chiropractors like Drs. Sid Williams, Jim Sigafoose, Dick Santo totally changed the mindset to, “why not me, why not now?”
Dr. Rubin asks the same of you now: Why not you? Why not now?
How many of us see something and then realize there is soooo much more to what we are looking at? Yale University Medical School started several years ago bringing their 1st year Med students to their Art Museum to improve their Visual Diagnostic Abilities (see article here:

A powerful TED talk by Janine Shepard is titled, “A Broken Body is not Broken.” What a powerful concept. It goes along with the concept, “It’s not how many times you get knocked down but how many times you get up that counts.” During the challenging times, remember, as Zig Ziglar used to say, “you were born to win, designed to win, endowed with the seeds of greatness.”
