March 1, 2021 Puzzle Piece



Dear Practitioner,
Our twins are now 10.  Trig tackled the Rubik’s Cube and at first felt defeated.  His mother has made them a vision board they review often. She also made them a slide presentation with over 50 slides of overcoming adversity and not allowing defeat.

She suggested he google how many people finish the Cube that start it.  It was less than 6%.  With that insight, Trig looked at the positive quotes, his vision board and looked for tutorials keeping only success in mind.  The result was total accomplishment and smiles as you see in the picture.

So, if you feel disappointed, frustrated, or defeated by the way things seem to be going in our country, your personal life or practice, keep reading this week’s Puzzle Piece and keep smiling. You are going to be reminded of a great story of perseverance in overcoming defeat.  This story will not only bring you hope and inspiration, but also the courage to keep going in the face of difficulties. As the saying goes, it is always darkest before the dawn.

Nothing brings more joy than overcoming difficulties together.  We are in this together.  This March is my 50th anniversary being licensed to practice Chiropractic and Health Care.  Dr Marc Harris is also at 50 years since he started so young.  With OHS, Doug Grant, Dr Marc, me and YOU, we can succeed by working together!
This is the story of one of the most influential American presidents in history. His accomplishments, especially at critical times, set the destiny and direction of our nation. They far surpassed the challenges faced along the way. Although it did not look like there could be a happy ending while all these trials were happening.

Americans have President Abraham Lincoln to thank for never giving up.

Abraham Lincoln lost eight elections before becoming the 16th president of the United States. You can find the full record of his life in several historical sources.  These come from the book Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hanson and summarized by Epoch Times. Here are some of Lincoln’s notable defeats.
•    In 1832, he ran for a seat in the Illinois State Legislature and lost. Two years later, he won and was re-elected three times.
•    In 1838, he aspired to become speaker of the state legislature and lost.
•    In 1840, he sought to become an elector in the Electoral College and lost.
•    In 1843, he ran for the House of Representatives and lost. When he ran again in 1846, he won.
•    In 1854, he ran for the U.S. Senate and lost.
•    In 1856, he sought the vice-presidential nomination at this party’s national convention and got fewer than 100 votes.
•    In 1858, he ran for the U.S. Senate again and lost again.
Lincoln ran for president in 1860 and was elected. The rest changed history.

 Abraham Lincoln kept loyal to his ideals, his beliefs, and his vision for America. What if he had stopped after his first or second or even third defeat?
God Bless YOU and AMERICA and whatever country you may live in.

Yours in Health and Wellness,
