Next New Beginnings
January 30, 31 & February 1, 2009

Happy New Year to All.

We have made several changes to the New Beginnings schedule and dates for 2009.

With the difficult times our economy is facing our board at N.B. has decided to improve our weekends by making them more attractive to doctors, staff and students.

How will we do this?

We will be starting all future weekends on Friday late afternoon, instead of Thursday.
This will accomplish several things.

1. Less costly for doctors hotel stay. (meals, etc)
2. Possibility of local doctors to work extra hours.
3. Less of a commitment to hotel for New Beginnings for meeting room rental / luncheons .and other items.

We will continue to bring in speakers that align with our philosophy. Additionally many of these speakers will assist doctors by offering coaching from within our ranks. Many of our doctors will contribute to our Speed Coaching and Spouses Forum in 2009.

We are bound by COMMITMENT, HONOR and LOVE for Chiropractic...we are the LEADERS in our profession.

We are New Beginnings...... Philosophers of Chiropractic....

All My Love, Loyalty and Friendship..

A Violinist in the Metro

Jim Dubel

Maybe we think about going on a vacation.. maybe about going to a chiropractic weekend like New Beginnings but put it off because the time isn't right.

What about getting up early to see the sunrise...
maybe going for that swim, even though the water might be a little cool.

We create obstacles in our lives, we come up with excuses to "not" do or enjoy life to its fullest.... It's a new year.. time to get back on track.. time do do the things that God is allowing us to do.

It is time to listen to INNATE and the beautiful music she is playing..

Hope to listen to that music with you very soon and I hope you enjoy this true story..

All My Love, Loyalty and Friendship...

A Violinist in the Metro

A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that thousands of people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was music playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried up to meet his schedule.

A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping continued to walk.

A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston and the seats average $100.

This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by theWashington Post as part of an social experiment about perception, taste and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?

 


Opening a Practice - Again!

Dr. Bobby Braile

For the past 4.5 years I have taken a break from active practice and devoted my time to several other responsibilities. These included raising two adopted daughters with my wife Evelyn, working Now You Know, speaking at chiropractic events around the country, and being active as a Board member of ICA. Well, my daughters are getting a little older (18 & 12), I am no longer on the ICA Board, and I have prioritized my speaking engagements. So it is time to re-enter practice!

In the past few years, and more recently the past few months I have become "itchy" to get back to seeing patients. Attending programs like, New Beginnings, Dynamic Essentials (DE) and Get the Big Idea, among others has only served to fuel my desire.

I have always believed in following the God given Innate messages that have come my way. That is what made me move from Florida to Georgia and has blessed me with a wonderful family, and all the success I have had in chiropractic and in my life. At my recent Philosophy on the Farm, someone walked up to me and offered me a walk-in practice. That itch I was having became an all out fire. And although the practice I was offered was just a little too far away from my home, it set in motion a series of events that is leading me back into practice.

Just in case I was not sure, I'll relate a little story.

My wife and I were having lunch at one of her favorite restaurants about three weeks ago. Just before we began eating, we said a little prayer for the meal and to guide our direction regarding opening an office. Not 30 seconds after that prayer my cell phone rang with a local number I did not recognize. Upon answering it a woman said that she wanted to make an appointment to be a new patient and come in to see me. Stunned, I asked how she heard about me. It seemed she had seen my website (the sample one I keep for Now You Know), www.brailechiropractic.com, and after reading it she wanted to start care with me. I am not usually at a loss for words, but it took me a few seconds to respond and tell her that although I'd be delighted to serve her, I was not in practice yet and in fact did not even know where I'd be opening an office. I did tell her to watch the website as I'll post it on there as soon as I get a location and will be opening. This call sealed it for me and my wife. We were going back into practice!. And just in case I thought this was just a fluke, I had another woman call me a week later to also set up an appointment. I have not had any calls like this in the last 5 years since I left practice, and now I get two. For me that is a clear message.

Since this event, I've had over half a dozen additional calls for people wanting to start care. Now I am not a young kid just out of college. I am now 53 and looking to go back into practice, hopefully for the right reasons.  This means that I probably have more baggage, more responsibilities, and hopefully more wisdom.

Having a different perspective Dr. Jim has asked me to keep a blog of my experiences while opening a practice.  He has asked me to keep a "Braile's Blog" on the New Beginnings website to have a record of my steps and thoughts while opening a practice.

While this adds a lot of pressure in the way of eyes on me, I have agreed to keep the blog. If this helps some of the new practitioners, I'm happy to serve. So, look on the New Beginnings website for the new item on their menu called "Braile's Blog".
