Hi Ben Altadonna here.
Over the next few weeks, I will go over one question each day that I often ask myself.
It’s also a question I often ask others who are either focused on what they believe to be a challenge or an opportunity.
“Is That The Real Reason?”
This is one of my favorite questions.
The more times I ask myself this question, the more accurate my thinking becomes.
So many things we either think about, believe, or do come out of pain, fear, jealousy, envy, laziness, depression, anxiety, etc…but no out of real justification, need, facts, or rationality.
Use this question. Use it often.
Anytime you do anything, ask why?
Whatever answer you tell yourself, follow it up with…
“Is that the real reason?”
The right questions answered with honesty can often times keep you out of trouble, save you time, money, misery, and can above all else, set you free!
Question # 2:
“SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?”
Too often, we take what we tell ourselves or what others say to us as face value and as a result, we often times make the wrong assumptions and decisions.
That’s why, to get clarity, undercover opportunities, and to eliminate the drama and the nonsense, in response to a thought or what I hear, I rarely ask less than 2-3 questions of myself and others and one of the most common questions is, “So what does that mean?”
There’s a lot of verbal vomit out there.

I hear it all the time from consultants and Chiropractors: complete nonsense designed to either justify a position, rationalize a behavior, or sell themselves or someone else on a process, product, or point of view that has either no demand or creates no value.
Politely call people out on the words they use and listen to the words you use.
Talk is cheap but miscommunication, misunderstanding, and misguidance is expensive.
*If you are a chiropractor and need help with chiropractic marketing strategies, getting new patients and communicating with your existing ones you should pick up a copy of “Are Chiropractors Being Brainwashed?” For YOUR free copy, see below.
Even if chiropractic marketing strategies is not your thing, this latest book exposes why most practice building tactics don’t work and what you, your staff, and/or your associate doctor can do about it QUICKLY, PREDICTABLY, AND WITH LITTLE TO NO EXPENSE.
