Patient Attraction Episode 519
I hope you liked yesterday’s podcast on how building relationships can improve your workplace. Today, I want to look at you as the leader of the business. Today, we’re going to look at your attitude. Stay tuned.
– Hi, Colin Receveur here.
– If you are a fan of this podcast, you already in the top 1 percent of dentists.
– You already are taking the initiative to improve your business.
– So when I came across a blog about the attitudes of successful people, I knew it would be right for you.
– The writer frames the conversation as statements successful people don’t accept, but it is really about attitude.
– Let’s look at the 5 attitudes and see if any of them apply to you – and how to overcome them.
- “I never get the right opportunities.”
– Are you waiting for the right location to move your practice?
– Waiting for the right associate to come along?
– Waiting for the right deal on that CT scanner or CEREC machine?
– While you are waiting, your competitors are MAKING their own opportunities.
– Remember: He who hesitates is lost.
- “(Someone) is always holding me back.”
– Maybe this is a competitor.
– Or a mentor who gave you bad advice.
– Or you can’t get the loan you need to expand your practice.
– So you have two choices:
– Let that person stand in your way.
– Find other people who can help you move forward.
- “I just don’t have enough time.”
– One of my senior staff once advised me not to get so caught up in my business that I neglected my family.
– “Work expands to fill whatever time you give it,” he said.
– You have time, you just need to change how you use it.
– That may mean giving up some things.
– Or reducing how much time you spend on some things.
– But the time is there if you WANT it to be.
- “Sure, I would do that … if I could be sure it would be worth it.”
– You can never be sure of anything.
– Life is a gamble; you take one every time you set foot out the door.
– Successful people take risks and put in work with the ANTICIPATION of a payoff, not the other way around.
– As long as you are afraid to take a risk, you can’t win big.
- Finally, “But there’s just nothing special about me.”
– Even if other people have more skills, you can get those skills.
– Even if other people have more vision, you can hire people with vision.
– But by making it through dental school and owning your own practice, you have already proven that you are exceptional.
– I want to tell you about another dentist who faced the same challenges.

– Don’t let anything keep your from being a success.
– Until tomorrow, keep moving forward.
