New Patients; Questions That Must be Answered for Increased Attraction and RetentionApr 01, 2015
“Every well-built house started with a definite plan in the form of blueprints.”
~ Napoleon Hill
For low stress and predictable practice growth we must consistently attract new patients and to impact their long-term health we must have a healthy retention (PVA). Scientific studies demonstrate that chiropractic care affects the brain’s sensory processing, muscle control, functional performance, sensorimotor integration and so much more. With what we know to be true, it begs the question, how do we get more people to “get” it?
Whatever we think about comes about. Our thoughts are the foundation, the seed, and the blueprint for our success. If the value of our service is misunderstood or doubted, if anyone on the team does not support the vision, our practice suffers. Notice when someone on the team has a subluxation from the neck up; cancellations increase, referrals and new patients cease and everything seems to be difficult.
When we are masters of connection, communication and patient education we will have a thriving practice. When everyone on the team is focused, expectant, on fire, on purpose, ready and prepared; the practice booms. Reactivations, new people, referrals flood in. Time seems to suspend, records are broken and everything seems easy.
We get what we think about and focus on; our life is a mirror of our thoughts. We must at all times be mindful. The only thing we can control is what we are thinking. Focusing on contribution, solutions, the possibilities, and the fun in our life we will produce more of the same.
Make a habit of being in a state of grace and gratitude. Decide to take massive action to live your dreams and reach your goals. Decide to increase your knowledge, improve your skills, and get help when needed. Pay attention to what is working and do more of it. Fix what is broken, weak or ineffective.
Sometimes achieving a goal takes longer or is harder than we anticipated. If we embrace the challenge; let out goal, dream and vision light the way, we will fulfill our aspirations. Dreams do come true, to those who believe, act, prepare and have a great support team.
