    The quick fix never works. I often get calls from potential Warrior Coaching clients that are desperate for a quick fix in their business or  practice. They call because they are not making it and want 'the secret' to getting new patients or acquiring new sales fast. 

    In my experience, it is never a quick fix. In order to run a successful business of any kind requires years of training. This training is most often done in the school of hard knocks, learning by experiencing setbacks and finding solutions. This process can be accelerated through coaching and mentoring. If the business owner/leader can submit to a training plan then a lot of pain can be avoided. The key word here is submit. It requires a humble approach, acknowledging that they don't know everything and that there is some serious training to be done.

    Typically training and mentoring can be in a number of areas including: sales acquisition, process and procedure, team building, finance and leadership.
    However the most critical area of training (that is often overlooked or ignored) involves the area of personal performance

     Personal performance refers to increasing capacity in three realms: physical, soul (mind will and emotions) and spirit.

    The vast majority of business training misses the mark on all three of these areas. My observation is that most business training is heavy on process and procedure and light on transformation.

    Without personal performance training, transformation is virtually impossible. Most people live in paralysis and are unable to engage in new process because of fear. They are afraid of how the changes that they make to their business will be perceived by others.

    Personal performance coaching takes time. It tends to trend upward over a period of years and decades.
    Over time you get enough experience stepping into fear which allows you to move foreward with more and more transformation. Each transformation builds from the previous one and into the next. 

    Here is a revelation that I had recently as I was going through a Crossfit workout in the morning followed by a bike ride on the trainer in the afternoon.
    How I performed on the WOD that day (that's Crossfit speak for 'workout of the day') and on the bike, relates back to every other workout I have ever had. Nothing goes unused. In my early school years I played every sport possible and excelled somewhat in hockey and ski racing. I had the good fortune of playing varsity hockey in university and then had a heavy weight lifting program throughout Chiropractic College. (Thank you Charles Poliquin).
    After getting married and being pregnant with two babies (ok Marie was pregnant but I was putting on the weight), I had a ski crash that knocked me out of commission for 6 weeks. A slow recovery back to fitness ensued and I did HITT training for two years. This then led to 7 years of Ironman training. 

    Then here we are back to my WOD in a box in Ottawa. All those other workouts or lack there of, got me to where I am today. It's never an easy meteoric rise to the top. 

    Same is true of practice/business.
    I still try to improve my report and adjustments every day. Just yesterday I tweaked my first adjustment dialogue with 4 new patients. Each one understood at a new level why I needed to find and correct just the ONE most important subluxation in their spine that was going to make the biggest difference to the nerve system and their overall healing.
    Years ago Dr. Schiffman talked to me about the 'specific scientific chiropractic adjustment' but, yesterday after 31 years in practice, I understood it at a different level. Because I understood it better, today my patients will have better outcomes. 

    It's never the quick fix.
    It is a continuous journey of learning, training, and getting more and more excellent at your craft.

    Nothing is for not.
    God uses everything.
    Keep training and don't worry about the outcome.  Just stay engaged in the process and over the years and decades you too will become an overnight success!

    Keep training and keep serving, 

    Coach Yurij

    The more I look at "Overnight Successes" and learn about them, the more I see that for almost all of those successes, they took years or even decades. The overnight success is a fantasy that I've clung on to for a long time. Warrior has taught me patience and persistance in spite of fear. Thank you!

    Hey Warriors, thank you for all the comments and insights. Latest post is on the Warrior Way. Login to VIP and go to Tactical Zone and you will find the Warrior Way there. Marie and I are in Calgary running an amazing Goals to Reality seminar tomorrow. Co teaching with Dr. Mark Foullong. Excited to be with all the Western Warriors.

    I never knew it would take so long to change me. Or so difficult. But I'm in a very different place now since training alongside Warriors for all these years! Thank you coaches!

    Thanks for the encouragement Yurij and everyone. It reminds me that the big breakthroughs come from hundreds, thousands of small steps, just like yesterday's run. 40 minutes of small steps to get to the finish line. Using each step to get deeper into God.

    Thanks coach. This message definitely hits home. I can say with certainty that one thing Warrior has taught me throughout the years is the importance of keep on keeping on...Nothing is for Not. Blessings Trev

    Yurij. I love it! This is so true it's ridiculous. 10,000 hours and counting seems to be the way to 'overnight success.' There's a reason over 80% of lottery winners end up in worse shape within 5 years; they don't have the base to handle the success. Thanks for always growing and inspiring us to do the same. Love you! Brad

    Thanks Yurij. Its the simple truth that often we don't want to hear. But truth is simply the truth. Have to also say that I love the new graphics with the Warrior Wisdoms. Very very GOOD. Pictures speak well to me! Thanks, Denise

    So it will only take years of training to become an overnight success??? Sign me up for that. Great perspective Coach!

    One step at a time, continually taking just the next step to the best of my ability and remembering that God works through all things for the good of those who love Him. He orders my steps and is with me all ways. I continue to learn these truths each day - integrating them with greater success some days more than others. I am grateful that He is so faithful, and that He knew I would need brothers & sisters to help me learn and know this so that I can live it out each day. Thanks Yurij.

    Yurij can I get a warrior wisdom every morning? ;) I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning not wanting to go into work. Mainly succumbing to fear and worried about what people think instead of serving from the heart. It's like you knew exactly what I needed to hear. I am definitely enrolled in the school of HARD KNOCKS. Slow and steady wins the race! Finding solutions as we step into challenges has been transforming. Thank you for feeding my soul! I want to keep transforming by stepping into fear and not worrying about what people think of me but to simply care for that person regardless of what they think of me.

    Erin, great reminder that it takes a lot of hard work. I remember conversations with you and Pierre in those early years when you were both working super hard and wondering if it was all going to work out. Now 10 plus years later things are really getting exciting.

    Yves, thank you for your feedback. It's not surprising that someone that has been in the trenches in business for close to 4 decades would agree with me that success takes time and God does't waste anything, in fact He uses all things for good.


    On Monday, February 27, 2017, Yves said:

    This is such a good wisdom. in most things worth pursuing, it requires perseverance, commitment and time. It took me a long time to learn this and I still need to be reminded as Yurij just did. I would love quick fixes, but have not found any that work. (contrary to all of the offers made on TV and magazines). Thanks Yurij.
