Hi, this Dr. Fab, I want to talk to you about how to keep an open mind. This is something that is so critical because, most of us are limited by our mind, by our thinking. There is three things that I’ve discovered in how to do this.
1. Be a good listener.
2. Put yourself in place of the other.
3. Don’t judge.
I still remember the time that I decided to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.
I was so excited, but, the day before registration, I received a call from my parents telling me that they can’t really afford for me to go to Chiropractic School, because my dad made some bad investments.
I told my mom not to worry about it and my roommate had Financial Aid.
I go to the next day, to the Financial Aid office and they tell me I don’t qualify.
Can you image that?
I can’t afford to go to school.
My parents are saying, “Go back to Miami, come with us for about a year or so. Let your dad recover and then we’ll be able to afford for you to be able to go to Chiropractic School.”
Have you ever been in a position that you can’t afford something?
Well, if you are, “Like” me right now and put a comment about what that is.
I want to read about it.
In my case, I had to keep an open mind.
This is what this video is all about, how to keep an open mind.
I looked at all my worldly professions, and I realized I had a car.
A car that I was given during graduation.
I sold that car and I was able to start school, pay for my first two trimesters of tuition, and it was the best investment that I made.
Hi, this Dr. Fab, I want to talk to you about how to keep an open mind.
This is something that is so critical because, most of us are limited by our mind, by our thinking.
There is three things that I’ve discovered in how to do this.
The first one is, you’ve got to believe there is always a way.
No matter what circumstances you’re facing.
No matter what other people tell you that can and cannot be done, I want you to know that when there is a will, there is always a way.
You have to find out what that way is and you have to keep looking for it. If you keep looking, you will find it. Just like I did with my car.
The second thing that I have found is, you have to be creative.
That means you have to think out of the box.
You have to really start looking at models and what other people have done in the past and start thinking, “What can I do to be able to accomplish what it is that I want to accomplish?”
But, you’ve got to keep that open mind in order to be able to do that.
You do that primarily by being creative.
So, get creative.
I had to be very creative because I didn’t know how I was going to afford tuition, but hey, what would have happened if I would of quit?
If I would have not just been able to follow through with what my life’s desire was.
The last thing is, you’ve got to learn from others.
You see, I have found that you don’t have to create a new path every single time.
I have found that if I just look at models of how people resolve an issue that I was struggling with, or how people was able to find a creative solution, or how people were able to keep an open mind and be able to achieve what it is that they set out to achieve, regardless of what circumstances they were facing.
I said to myself, “I can learn always from other people.”
Here are the three things that I want you to do on a every single day basis, to keep an open mind.
If you like this video, I want you to share it with everybody else.
I want you to, right now, to “Like” it, comment on it, tell me exactly how you’re keeping an open mind.
I can’t wait to see you on the next one.
