I have a question for you? It’s a question I ask myself. Probably every day if not a few times a day. And it’s the question I believe all ambitious, successful, smart professionals always ask themselves too.
Today, I want to ask you…
Do you ever feel plateaued?
Wondering what’s next?
How to achieve more, better, faster?
More: Money, Time, Patients, Procedures you love
Better: Profit, Team, Execution, Patients
Faster: Goals, Bucket list, Procedures.
I’m guessing I know the answer. Because anyone who cares about outcomes, who wants productive use of time and who has a feeling of great significance often feels plateaued.
Sometimes it’s a plateau of motivation, even desire. Sometimes it’s a plateau of excitement where boredom sets in. Sometimes it’s a plateau of results, growth even. Sometimes it’s (if you can imagine this), a plateau of vision.
A lost or lack of clarity is catalyst for all the rest. Like knocking down the first domino. If you lose sight of your goals and vision or have no plan to achieve them, you will quickly become frustrated maybe even experience a feeling of helplessness.
Or, I hate to even say it, you might feel a lack of deserve when things get tougher and they always do. Success certainly does. The higher up the mountain peak you go, the harder it is to hang on let alone keep climbing. That is when you start to let doubt creep in.
And my friend – doubt is what stimulates all the worst things in your life and business. It doesn’t happen second, it happens first. Then after doubt you start getting distracted searching for easy solutions to complex problems or you start questioning whether it’s all worth it or not. Or you stray from everything you know has been proven to work and you stop doing the right things.
Even the greatest athletes have slumps. Feel plateaus. Get frustrated. Lose.
And then they do what all great players know to do. As the only way out of a slump, the only way to breakthrough a plateau is…
TO PLAY THROUGH IT
Right now, in your practice, I don’t care how many millions of dollars you make or even how big your net worth already is, and on the flip side, I don’t care if you have no money at all and are struggling, or if your practice has gone up or down or stayed the same this year.
No matter what you are experiencing right now (your perception of things, the feelings inside of you, or the actual legitimate plateaus in your practice), you’ve got two choices.
To give in, be complacent, settle and stop striving for more.
To commit to conquering them, to grow, to thrive by deciding to breakthrough whatever is holding you back from the next level, from your potential, from your highest income or your ideal dentistry.
If you choose the second, I can tell you more of the same isn’t going to get you anything more, better, faster of what you want. You must build up momentum, regain your confidence, double down on the stakes, ignite your fire, lock down your focus and prepare to explode through your plateaus.
There is no such thing as a ‘gradual’ breakthrough. You must…
Explode Through Your Plateaus
That’s how you breakthrough and achieve more, better, faster. Results, success, goals, profits, wherever you desire to go next with your practice and your life.
First, you must make the list. Ask around if you have to, but figure out what’s holding you back, right now.
And then I challenge you to accept no excuses from yourself or anyone else and to arm yourself with the advantage that you deserve to have…
If there is one definition of what I do – I’m a plateau conqueror, a breakthrough exploder. I am the assurance to your ability that allows you to work smarter not harder and to get more out of all you’ve got.
You are here in the right place, but ‘just’ reading won’t get you anywhere you want to go. Action only does that.
I challenge you to take that action today.
To make the decision to leave anything hold you back in the dust, to kick gradual anything to the curb and step up to the goals that you have, exceed them and set even bigger ones.
Why not? Is there any other point? If you want to help patients then you have to also want to be successful because the two go hand in hand.
You can see where you are and all that you have achieved up to this point in your career. This isn’t about that – it’s about what’s next, where you go from here.
Put down the shovel. Leave the jackhammer at home. I’m bringing dynamite. There won’t be a single wall holding you back anymore.
And I don’t care whether your plateaus or in your head, in your team, in your patients, in your city or even in your finances. Bring me your toughest challenges as long as you are ready to win like never before. Now is the time.
This is no April Fool’s joke, we are just one day before the end of the first. You still get to decide just how much you want to achieve the rest of 2018.
