I have to say that one of the things I get most excited about is the potential we as humans have to defy the odds and make the seemingly impossible, possible.
From the olympic athlete who came from what looked like a career-ending injury for most, to win olympic gold yet again (insert pro snowboarder Shawn White here), to the average mom who can lift a car off her child, stories of awe and wonder like this are everywhere.
There is something incredible about the human body and the potential we all have to be better. Olympic world records continue to occur year after year, and if this isn’t evidence that we are evolving as a species, then I don’t know what is.
So what does this have to do with me, you ask? Olympic athletes are a very small percentage of the population of course, but what if you could be a better version of yourself? What does that mean for you?
It could mean for some people to finally live pain-free. It could mean being able to travel and have the mobility to lift your kids, grands, or even great grandkids without any problem. It could mean having the memory and mental functioning to have meaningful relationships with those who matter most.
Whatever the goal, the amazing news is that you possess such an incredible ability within you to achieve great things, and it comes from your brain and nervous system. Giving your brain and nervous system the greatest chance possible to thrive means the only thing separating you from your goal is a plan and time to execute it.
This is the reason why people get adjusted beyond simple pain relief. They understand that peak performance of their nervous system requires regular protective maintenance adjustments, and the proof is in the results! Is it any wonder why so many professional athletes rely on their chiropractors? It’s for that competitive edge.
You and I may not be competitive athletes, but we can become better, more functional versions of ourselves IF we take care and protect our spine and nervous system.
