1. You Are Not Always Right

The need to always be right can destroy your practice relationships and may cause a great deal of stress and pain for yourself and your practice team. So is it really worth it? Would you rather be right or kind?

2. Control Freak

Allow everything and everyone to be just as they are and you will see how it will make you feel less stressed.

3. Shame On Blame

Start taking the responsibility for your actions and you start taking responsibility of your practice & life.

4. Positive Self Talk

Not everything your mind is telling you will be helpful towards achieving your goals. Some of it may be negative and self-defeating and therefore not useful for you. Instead keep telling yourself that you are better than that.

5. The Sky Is The Limit

Try abandon the words ‘cannot’ and impossible’ and replace them with ‘can’ and ‘possible’ to avoid getting stuck in one place. Soon you will see that the opportunities are endless.

6. Stop Complaining

You are the master of your destiny. It is not the situation that causes negative feelings in you, it is how you choose to react to it. Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.

7. Constructive Criticism

Remember that whether it is your patients or your staff, you are always dealing with people. And while everyone is different, we are all the same when it comes to our basic needs in life. We all want to be happy, we all want to love and be loved and we all want to be understood.

8. Dress To Impress?

You will find that people and good things will be drawn to you, but only as soon as you stop trying so hard to do something that is not natural to you. And the energy you save in trying so very hard can now be used to achieve more constructive things in your practice and in your life.

9. Embrace Change

Embrace change and don’t resist it. Change is good. Change will help you move from A to B. Change will help you make improvements in your life and also the lives of your patients, your staff, your friends, and your loved ones.

10. No Labels

Try opening your mind, step by step, because your mind will only work when open.

11. Don’t Fear

Fear is just an illusion, it doesn’t exist – you created it. It’s all in your mind. Correct the inside and the outside will fall into place.

12. No Excuses

I’m convinced that many people are just hunting for excuses to not do what they need to do. Even when all of the signs are pointing in the same direction. It’s easier to find excuses than it is to do the hard work required to be successful.

13. Don’t Live In The Past

I know, I know. It’s hard. Especially when the past looks so much better than the present and the future looks so frightening, but you have to take into consideration the fact that the present moment is all you have and all you will ever have. Be present in everything you do and enjoy life. After all life is a journey not a destination. Have a clear vision for the future, prepare yourself, but always be present in the now.

14. Give up attachment

Most of our problems and difficulties result from attachment. We take all our thoughts and feeling reactions far too seriously, as if we were just thoughts and reactions. If you learn not to identify with just a few kinds of thoughts or emotional reactions, you can achieve greatness.

15. Give up living your life to other people’s expectations

Ask yourself “What makes me happy? What do I want? What do I need?” Listen to your inner voice, you must live your life now, own it, and especially don’t let other people’s opinions distract you from your path.
