Dream Big, Take Action

I have chosen “Dream Big, Take Action” as the motto for the Pourgol Family Coat of Arms because it signifies my life philosophy and the reason for my success.

When I started National Academy of Osteopathy, I dreamed big. I set a goal of teaching in 100 cities across the world. Now we teach osteopathy in 68 countries (well over 100 cities worldwide). While “dreaming big” gives me the motivation and energy to persevere “taking action” is the part that makes my big dreams come true.

I teach my students everything I know about business because I want them to achieve financial success. You can also achieve your goals if you take action and do three things daily that bring you closer to your goals.

Osteopathy Business Tip #48

Professional Headshots

In my lectures I recommend you to use a professional looking photo. Here is an example used by manual osteopath Adam Hanaei, BSc, DOMP, DO (candidate) one of my students in Vancouver. And this is what he says about how effective they are:

"Professional headshots are doing magic for your business...listen to Dr Shahin Pourgol and use a professional headshot for your marketing."

همکاری علمی‌ ما با دانشگاه علوم پزشکی‌ اهواز

دانشگاه ملی‌ علوم پزشکی‌ ما در اسپانیا کلاسهای عملی‌ و حضوری خود را در دانشکده داروسازی دانشگاه علوم پزشکی‌ اهواز برگزار می‌کند برای چهارمین دورهٔ دکترای فیزیوتراپی

ما تنها دانشگاه هستیم که رشته دکترای فیزیوتراپی را به صورت حضوری در ایران درس میدهیم. هیچ دانشگاه ایرانی‌ و یا خارجی‌ در داخل ایران در حال حاضر این رشته را ارائه نمیدهد. در حال حاضر بیشتر از ۳۰۰ فیزیوتراپیست در دانشگاه نامز ما در ایران درس می‌خوانند

من بسیار متشکر هستم که دانشگاه علوم پزشکی‌ اهواز مکان و پروفسورهای خود را در اختیار دانشجویان ما قرار داده است. این همکاری باعث پیشرفت رشته فیزیوتراپی در ایران میشود که سلامتی‌ جامعه را بالا میبرد

بسیار خوشحال هستم که توانستم خدمتی به هموطنان عزیز ارائه دهم

My First Flying Kick in 30 Years!

For decades I could not jump because I was overweight (I was 118kg 5 months ago). Any jumping movement gave me knee pain before.

Today after 30 years for the first time I tried flying side kick (one of my favourite Taekwondo techniques). It was scary as I was nervous about damaging my knee. But everything went fine and I did it!

I am so happy that I changed my life style, cut the bad food, added health food and started exercising (weight lifting, Taekwondo and Yoga).

I am feeling young again and my energy levels are getting back to how it was 30 years go when I was a Taekwondo champion.
