The Polar Bear

Written By Chiropractic Health and Wellness on September 21, 2009

This is a story of a polar bear in a zoo in Colorado.  The zoo decided they wanted to create the greatest polar bear exhibit anyone had ever seen. It was going to have water and rocks and was going to attract attention from all over the world. Soon after the decision  they started construction. While construction was underway they picked up a polar bear cub from another zoo. Since the display wasn't finished the cub was in a smaller, temporary restraining cage. As construction went on the cub was growing. As they put water in the pond the cub was growing. Eventually it wasn't a cub anymore- it was a full grown bear.  It was entirely too large for the cage it was in and all it could do was just pace about. Because of its size, it could only take a couple steps to the left and a couple steps to the right- it was really restricted. The project that was scheduled to take one year took nine before it was completed, but the good news was that eventually he would get his new home. When the day came that construction was finished everybody came from all over. They were excited to see what would happen and nobody anticipated the results. They let the bear go in the middle of this huge area. He had opportunity all around him, but all he was willing to do was take a few steps to the left and a few steps to the right. In his mind he was still in that box.

The reason I tell you this story is that many of us are just like that polar bear- you are stuck in a box of self-limiting beliefs. You have opportunity all around you to reach  new levels of health and success and yet you may be limited by habits and beliefs that are invisible to you.

Your health is the result of the choices you have made. WHERE YOU ARE TODAY IS A RESULT OF THE CHOICES YOU MADE YESTERDAY. Every decision you make today is going to determine your health future.

We, at Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center, want to help you out of that box. As a WELLNESS clinic, this is what we do. We have the greatest job in the world. Every day we help people just like you get the most out of their lives and experience life to the fullest.
