If you’re going through tough times or have come through them in the past, you absolutely must watch this video.
I wished I could have seen something like this years ago when my practice was struggling. Instead I went to “rah-rah” seminars that my practice consultant held every other month (cost me about $1000 every time I went). Sure, I came home pumped up, “philosophically sound” and convinced it was all in my head (it’s true, it was in my head, put there by that consultant!) Yet my bank stayed near $0, new patients didn’t magically appear, and life pretty much sucked.
There are many lessons in this video, but the two I want to point out are…
Lesson #1. No matter how hard you got it, someone else has had it worse and made it through. Many have not only survived, but thrived and accomplished quite a bit after their struggles.
Lesson #2. No one is going to “pick you up”. Not the current president, the next president, the congress, health insurance companies, not even your patients. You got to pick yourself up, no matter how many times you fall down. If Nick can do it, you can too. Stop making excuses, get up and start getting things done.
